I had planned on making my ds an r2d2 costume based off this one.  I thought I had another week to go, but was sorely mistaken.  I remembered Friday morning that he had a Halloween party THAT night at the school.  So I pulled everything out and went to work on it.  I didn't have a pattern, just the pic of that little boy and how his costume looked.  I attempted to make a head piece like that one, but didn't have the right material so I dug out some yarn and started crocheting.  Once again, I had no pattern, but looked at a pic of r2 and went from there.  I finished his costume at 6pm.  His party started at 6:30.  He had tons of compliments on his costume, and as you can see, he was very happy with it. Smiley






Thanks for looking!

Amazing! I love that it's knit and material and not metal. Very original!

Wonderful -- instantly recognizable as R2 but one he can actually be a kid in and move....

No wonder he was so pleased.  I really love that the hat will be able to be worn whenever he wants as a winter warmer and he can re-live and enjoy the costume many times.

Thank you. Smiley  The fact that he can wear it all through the winter just thrills me because he is such a Star Wars fan. Smiley  And bonus .. it matches his blue & grey Nike winter jacket! LOL Smiley

So cute!  I love the hat especially because he'll get to wear it over and over, not just once.  Excellent job!

I can't believe you made that on such short notice!  It's AWESOME.  I would wear that, and I'm a grown woman, haha.
