R2-D2 Bike Helmet Protects Your Motivator Unit

Between C-3PO and R2-D2, there’s no question which droid was the most durable. That’s why I think it’s a good idea that the girl who made this made the right choice to protect her noggin with an R2-D2 helmet, and not one made to look like that other golden droid who all too often found himself chopped to pieces.

Pastry artist by day, Star Wars fan by night, Jenn Hall decided that if she was ever going to make an R2-D2 cake, it might come out in the shape of a helmet. But instead of baking said cake, she cooked up this most-excellent bike helmet in the likeness of R2-D2. Here’s Jenn showing of her finished R2 unit while riding her equally bad-ass scooter.

Not only is this thing perfect, it has just cemented Jenn as every geek’s dream girl. If she’s not already got every Star Wars fanatic on the Internet sending her love letters, she soon will. No questions asked.

If you want to make an R2-D2 helmet for yourself, check out Jenn’s “making of” post over on her blog. And for the love of Alderaan, somebody must order up an R2-D2 cake from the bakery Jenn works at so I can write about that too.
