Ahh, the robot. The perfect, inexpensive last-minute DIY costume. Mysterious discarded bolts left over from your last Ikea purchase, old CDs (dials), cardboard box bodies, soda-bottle jetpacks, coat hanger antennae, discarded aerosol spray can lids you can stick on each side of your helmet.. is there any costume that's so versatile and fun to build? Empty out the recycling while you're crafting :)
Sunny is a long, long-time fan of Daft Punk and also enjoys some early Kraftwerk, so he was keen on being a robot. Variations on the theme: the Tinman of Oz, Tron, C3PO ... find more inspiration on our Pinterest board.
Some DIYers like to use silver spray paint for their robots, but we'd like to put in a plug for another option: school glue with silver glitter and silver duck tape or aluminum foil on a few key areas. It's ok to keep some areas unpainted and it's easier on your lungs and the environment, too. At the end you can pull the costume apart and re-recycle it! Or go silver-free like this little pink-and-white robot (pictured).
