Star Wars R2D2 Helmet Is Timeless Fun

Jenn's R2D2 helmet is not exactly breaking news, but when it comes to Star Wars, I really doubt that someone will dare utter the word "old". And what's even better is that Jenn is a very pretty girl with a creative mind, so we're definitely in for some cool things from her.

Now, if you see a girl wearing Darth Vader print leggings, you should know things are dead-serious. So serious that she will be looking for a Star Wars-themed scooter helmet. And since we already said she was a creative person, an R2D2 DIY helmet only seems a natural consequence. Pretty is as pretty does, the gallery after the jump will have this explained in a most clear way.

She begun by sanding out this half helmet and then priming it to receive the silver paint base. According to Jenn, the tape design was a painstaking task as it was done without a compass. However the result is great, and the final blue paint went in perfectly.

Jenn added multiple layers of clear coating to seal in the design and add a shiny finish to her new lid, while adding a "lighting gadget" of her own secret design, of which the only known detail is that it contains a piece of PVC pipe.

If you live in Philly, you might occasionally run into Jenn riding her scooter and turning heads with her R2D2 DIY helmet of unlimited coolness. Will you join the dark side if she asks you to? if you plan to do so, make sure you wear the imperial trooper leathers.
