R2-D2 swimsuit gets a friend: Threepio

Droids as swimsuits is a hot nerdy trend I'd like to see continue. Who's going to be IG-88?

Remember the R2-D2 one-piece swimsuit from a few weeks back? Some readers thought it needed a C-3PO swimsuit to go with it, and the people at Black Milk, the design company that makes the swimwear, agreed.

Meet the C-3PO swimsuit, Threepio. Like the Artoo model, it costs $85 and is amazing.

And it's a good move by Black Milk, marketing-wise. Now every girl (or guy) who bought the Artoo version will have to get a friend to buy this one. You can't very well have R2-D2 without C-3PO, can you? I don't speak droid and 3PO always did a fine job translating.

On a personal note, I love that my job includes posting pictures of girls in swimsuits on the Internet. Call me creepy, but it's better than blogging about politics.
