Coolest Bender from Futurama Homemade Costume

I had 2 days to make a Homemade Bender from Futurama Costume for the 1st Annual Superhero Pub Crawl event in Portland Oregon. The goal was to have the costume look like Bender the alcohol-fueled robot from Futurama. Bender was constructed out of:

1 garbage can for the main body
1 cardboard tube for the head
1 ping pong ball for the top of the antenna
1 fluid funnel for the antenna base
1 cereal bowl for the top of the head
1 mirror soap holder for the eyebrow
2 Wiffle Balls for eyes
Black and white shelf pad material for the mouth and eyes
2 paint cups for wrists
2 punch bowls for feet
2 gloves
Duct tape covered cardboard rings for arms
2 pieces of flexible conduit for legs
Primer and Stainless Steel colored paint as needed

Total cost for all materials and paints was only $80, and I won Best Original Costume for my efforts!
