Meet Robot Adithi Version 2!

During New Year's Eve, we have a gala time at our Residential Colony and have various activities and games as part of the festivities, fancy dress for kids is a regular staple! For this when i was thinking about it, 2 characters sprung up in my mind and Adithi chose Robot out of them! The other one i had in mind was Shree Hanuman!

Since my hubby dearest was on block leave and was available during the entire week, i had him booked for during all the LED circuit work! 

Picked a carton which came for the new water heater and used it as the body, cut out the bottom side of it and reduced the width a little bit to suit Adithi's body measurements. Used the wrong side of the gift wrapper to get the silver sheen skin of the robot! 

Used cardboard sheets to make a box for the head. 

Used Amway bottles for hands and wraped them up with silver foil like paper! joined two bottles using silver wire and added silver foil paper on top to hide them. This meant that Robot can bend its elbow! 

Pants were the most difficult part to conceive. I wanted her to move around comfortably and yet had to make it match with rest of the costume, so used 2 layers, one fabric and on top of it, the silver foil like paper and made a pant with elasticized waist!

Used shoe boxes as shoes for the robot. Amway bottle lids were used as ears! 

Actually i couldn't take pictures during the actual fancy dress as i was busy getting her ready and then guess what nervous when she was performing i remained backstage and forgot to take video of her performance! god why do i become so nervous when she was cool as cucumber!

So i had to do a photo shoot on New Year's Day again and she was in no mood as you can see from the below pic!

BTW, Robot won the first prize in the fancy dress competition! yay!
