Coming from a costuming and cosplay background, I decided to make a costume for my first Half Marathon! R2-KT is a wonderful pink droid created for a young girl who was battling cancer. She is no longer with us, but her light still touches us through the little pink droid. I used a Champion Tech Shirt, puff and fabric paint, and a Sparkle Athletic skirt. Spencer printed off a template for me to trace and after a few hours of paint, it was done! I used as little paint as possible to help with keeping the shirt cool.  image

  1. As the man-servant for R2-KT and Katie’s dad, let me tell you how cool it is to see your outfit and the hope with which you ran. So cool! Thanks so much for the great pics, we posted it on http://www.r2kt.com in the Fans section.

    Keep on runnin’!
