Create Your Own Star Wars R2-D2 Costume for Cosplay & Halloween 2020

R2-D2 overall look

It doesn’t matter if you’re not an Star Wars fan, R2-D2 is one of the most easily recognizable pop culture icons and also one of the most famous droids since its first appearance in Star Wars – Episode IV: A New Hope, back in 1977. Ever since and for the last 40 years, R2’s unmistakable white and blue carcass has made it to each and every single one of the movies in the franchise. It comes as no surprise that cosplayers and fans are constantly finding ways to dress-up as this stubborn and fearless little robot.

R2-D2 is a cylinder with three wheeled arms and capped off with half a sphere. Its color scheme includes predominantly white and blue with a few details in silver.

It would be extremely challenging to fit a fully-grown person in an actual R2-D2 carcass, which is why we’ve taken it upon ourselves to find the best way possible to put together your R2-D2 costume.
