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)

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



Assembled
