Oh my god, y'all, I'm so excited to post this. Been thinking about it for weeks, couldn't decide what material to make the robot, finally tried shrinky dinks and I love it!!!



For the chain, the large circles are from Michaels, and the little things that look like gears (to me anyway) are toothed locking washers from the hardware store.



I don't care if I'm 32 and all the other grown-ups at work will laugh at me, I'm wearing it tomorrow anyway, so  Tongue

 Grin

Edit: Since I've been asked, and others might miss the answer, I thought I'd add that for the circuit looking designs on the robot I traced sections of the plastic thingy from inside an old keyboard.  That idea was inspired by the following lamps in the Light Me Up challenge, and if you click the links you can see what the plastic sheet thingies from the keyboard look like:
