The Costume is built in 3 parts –
For the body we will be using white foam sheet to make the front and back of the body and then sew it in place together.
To wear it, 2 straps which will rest on the shoulder.
For the arms to make them look mechanical, I will use a white cardboard piece on the back and foam to the front and stuff it will poly-fill and hold it in place using 2 straps
The eyes will be lit and will reside parallel to the forehead. (Not eyes) this will be achieved using a crown structure on the inside of the helmet with wire.
Black one way privacy film will be used to make sure light only passes one way through
I am still confused about how to make the helmet for the head part, exploring options as i want to retain he shape.
I am exploring lighting options I will be using blue light strip, not LED as it is too bright and does not produce the smoothness required for the costume.
