As I have written many times before, R2 is my all time favorite character from Star Wars. He’s so special, and when I was a little girl, I wished I could have an R2-D2 pet. To this day, the DIY Star Wars R2-D2 builds we have featured here on Bit Rebels are amongst my favorites, and this is another one that I’m proud to share with you. It’s a DIY R2-D2 bra which comes complete with light effects and plenty of noisy bleeps.
Although I wish the video below showed what it would look like on a real person, it’s still very fun to see it in action. It’s made from paper mache, and the lights and sounds come from a little R2-D2 toy figure that was hacked. You just press the top of R2’s dome (where the nipple would be) to activate the light and sound effects.
If you want to make an outfit out of it, you could combine these with the DIY Star Wars R2-D2 Heels With Blinking Lights that I wrote about a couple months ago. Just add a cute blue skirt, and you’ll be ready for a night out. This bra was conceived, designed and created by Instructables user seamster. On Instructables he wrote, “The best explanation I can give for this project is that I thought the idea was hilarious, and somebody needed to make it.”
If you would like to create one of these beauties for yourself, just click over to his tutorial at R2-D2 Bra. He offers a set of directions for two different types of Star Wars R2-D2 bras. The first one is made out of duct tape, and the second one is the one pictured here, which is the ultimate R2 bra. Good luck!
