After a quick poll, some research, and the fact that besides guitar hero I have been playing Bioshock alot, I have decided to be a Big Daddy for Halloween. For those of you that are not familiar with Bioshock, here is a pic of what I will be going for:
Now, the actual big daddy suit I don't see as a big challenge because I have plenty of experience working with plastic and making armor. (see my jango fett and ghostbuster projects on facebook) the main problem is that I really would like to have a little sister to go with this. Considering most girls will not even talk to me when I mention this hobby or my major (aerospace engineering), I've come to the conclusion that somehow I will have to make probably the creepiest manaquin in the world to "ride" the suit, similar to the picture above. Ive seen someone make a replica Lela (http://www.collegehumor.com/picture:1754638), but I figure I'd ask the experts here if they had any tips on how to pull this off
Pre-emptive thanks to anyone who chimes in.
