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!

The bad news: There is no key to happiness.
The good news: It isn't locked.

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.

Adorable!  What a great hat!  That's an all-year item.

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!

We are in the process of switching over to cloth diapers.  Would love some advice, hint, tips.   Will swap for diapers!
