Chris Bartlett, a.k.a. TK409 of the 501st Legion, built this fantastic Star Wars Gonk droid costume for his little kids, and I don’t know whether to be more impressed with his ingenuity or his ability to stretch a dollar.
I built this Gonk Droid costume for my kids using storage bins, foamcore and dryer vent hoses. Total cost about $40.

Total cost of $40? Wow. I think dollars must work differently where Chris is from, because I’ve never spent less than $100 finding a small child to dance like a hilariously-defective robot for me. (I don’t know what I’d do without Craigslist.)
