This is not R2 related but worth a post.
My friend Dash is making a Bib Fortuna costume and needed some help with some welding and Rebar bending to make a skeleton for his clay build up of the head tails. He will then make molds of them after he is done sculpting and cast them out of foam rubber.
You can view his progress on his Blog at http://bibfortuna.blogspot.com/
We will bend the rebar after he has his head cast here.
