Last year was the first time I actually made my costume and i enjoyed it so much that this year I figured i'd go all out. With Bender being one of my favourite characters on TV I thought he'd be the perfect costume. The body and head are made from sintra frame and styrene skin. The mouth is white mesh fabric on a sintra frame attached with velcro. I used magnets to be able to attach the cigar to the mouth. The domes on the head and the feet are made from 12" globes of the world cut in half. The arms and legs are made from thin styrene covered in duct tape and stuck together with rivets. The antenna is two door stop springs stuck together with a ping pong ball on top and a red blinking LED inside. The eyes were made from a 5" plastic yarn ball holder and they light up using white LEDs. The interior cabinet is made from sintra. Other than that it was a lot of hot glue, rivets and bondo. I'll try and come up with a more complete instructable in the next few weeks if possible.
