The Bad Robot logo practically begs to be mashed up with Star Wars, and R2-D2 is a natural choice. The blue and white droid looks great as the red robot. I’m sure it’s only a matter of time before a droid builder’s club makes a real-life version of this design.
This Bad Droid currently has a two-three week lead time. If you want it, I recommend pre-ordering now.

When R2-D2 isn’t busy saving the day, he likes playing dress up. I’m not sure how many outfits he has in his closet, but he looks good as a minion from Despicable Me. This could be a huge spoiler for Episode VII!
Artoo could be Phil or Stuart, I’m not sure. It’s hard to understand him when he introduces himself in beeps and boops. Regardless of his name, he’s got the costume down – the shiny blue stripes in the front really make the look.
Holy Ewoks! Look at these Star Wars ring designs! It looks like J.A.P. Studio had the license to make some creative Star Wars ring prototypes back in the late ’90s, and I wish they were available now. The statement rings feature more than just the usual suspects. I dig the R2-D2, Darth Vader, and Boba Fett designs but there are so many more – like a rancor ring, Ackbar, Bib Fortuna, and the list goes on. They are weird and delightful, and if I could wear one of them on each finger, I would.
Check out more examples of the rings after the break.

Course of the Force made its way through Southern California over the weekend, and it brought lots of costumed runners with it! The lightsaber relay run for charity had daily pit stops at piers along the coast called conivals. I stopped by the Santa Monica Pier for Friday’s conival and I spotted this adorable girl dressed as a Princess R2-D2. Her mother informed me they had participated in the relay earlier that day. The princess was as cute as can be.

Even robots get confused from time to time. This one doesn’t know whether he wants to be R2-D2 or a Dalek. It’s a fun design, and you have to wonder how Artoo would communicate important Dalek phrases with his beeping. I’d like to think he’d be a friendly Dalek and teach the others how to be like him.

Astromechs can look sexy – especially when they’re printed onto a corset. This R2-D2 corset design by Etsy seller Pendragon’s Fancy is positively perfect. The droid’s pattern is printed right onto the cotton fabric, and the clasps are metal hooks (I have a corset with these and they are fantastic). It’s made to order and takes 6-8 weeks. Be sure to measure carefully so that you don’t make beep-boop noises when you’re laced up.
