Homemade R2D2 Halloween Costume

Creating this R2D2 was fun and exciting!  First we took a regular light weight trash barrel and cut out the bottom and flipped it upside down. Next it was spray painted white and then the detail painting was done and holes were cut.

For the dome, We covered a yoga ball with paper mache about 4 layers and the deflated the ball.  I then cut holes and then spray painted the dome.  Finally, paint work on the dome by hand also.  For his legs, we used plastic fencing slats.  And to finish it off, he got wheels, round bike light, and wireless speaker attached to a continuous feed of R2D2 sounds.
