R2D2 casemod. Let me tell you, if I knew squat about computers and/or metal welding, I would so make one of these. I want one so bad. For now, I'll have to stick with my tower that has AT-AT's painted on it. (That's still kind of cool, right?)
Steampunk R2D2. I am fascinated by steampunk right now--I think it's a really interesting sci-fi trend. This steampunk R2D2 is just too cool. The guy that made this has details about it on his blog, it's very interesting. He made a lot of it from parts that you wouldn't expect, kind of like the original R2.3. Okay, this one is kind of cheating. My boyfriend painted this Christmas ornament for me. Out of everything I've posted, it's the least technically challenging, but there is not a chance in hell it would look anything like an R2 unit if I tried to paint it, so I am still in awe.
For now, I'll have to stick to crochet and knitting, but I can still stand in awe of those with different craft techniques and say...I WANT!!!
