As a student, I didn't want to spend much on my halloween costume this year, so I opted for making a cheap R2D2 costume (I was recently introduced to Star Wars this year and fell in love). The materials I used were:
-2 pieces of white poster paper
-8 orange pipe cleaners
-Glue gun & glue sticks
-White paint (I used house paint)
-White school glue
-My own shoes
Step 1: Preliminary Sketches
First, I made rough measurements of how much poster board I needed to wrap around myself. Then, I made sketches of the front and the back of R2D2 on the poster board pieces using images from the internet.
Using the sketches, I cut out craft foam to match and super glued it to the poster board.
