We bought a black bodysuit and stitched on metallic pvsc, and shiny red lycra. The details of the front armor were painted on. ALL of the armor is EVA, plasti-dipped and painted, glued straight onto the suit. Red reflective tape is used for the red glowing parts, and large googly eyes spray painted for the giant silver hip rivets.
The entire back tank is actually a small black back pack that we glued EVA foam to. It also has a 1 liter soda bottle with purple tulle and lights inside, attached to the backpack. The cables are all actually cables. And the tubing resting on the neck was also attached to the backpack. The beret and patch were bought! Sy is using his own hair.
