KruddMan: The Atomic Dude-Bot
I made this for Halloween this year (2005). I decided that i would like to be a robot for Halloween and spent about a week nonstop working on it. It's made of cardboard, duct tape, hot glue, acrylic paints, papier mache, a couple plumbing parts and a cut up mountain dew bottle.  I'm pretty happy with the result and I'd like to make more and better robot costumes some day.

Started with initial concept drawings. (click to expand)  

Shot of my room and work area before I started :

Closeup of the head shape :


Me with the head on seeing if it fits, lining up the eyes and looking like an idiot:

First attempt at a chest plate. It was too small and too lame

And I wasted a lot of cardboard to find that out

So i started over with a more planned out 3 dimensional shape

that could fold up into the shape i wanted

made the back - and then i couldn't find my camera for a few days. turned out my roommate had borrowed it

and here is my bedroom after construction
