I was still working on this costume today and finished in time to suit up. The armor is trash can, the vest is a gray vinyl I made as well. Overall I am very pleased with the results and it was awesome to walk the neighborhood. Many of the kids picked who I was and I was asked to take pictures with them.
But many adults also called me Boba Fett, Darth Vader, Stormtrooper, Rocket Man, SpaceMan, Robot Guy, RoboCop... it was humiliatin after all the work put in on this to be called Robot Guy! ROFL! Still, a great first outing and a really fun time in the costume.
It took my wife 40 min to get it on me a layer at a time. Should go faster next time as I have the process figured out as to what goes on first etc...I have to say it was really comfortable to wear and I had a lot of maneuverability. Last year I went as Batman Begins. Great custom costume as well but no where near the mobility.
Up here in Wisconsin it was in the upper 50's, low 60's great for wearing this costume...it wasn't hot at all...perfect. A great first experience.
