Picture of Dead Space Isaac Clarke Level 3 RIG
So, Dead Space 1 and 2 have been great games which take place in the distant space with necromorphs, etc, and this might be a little late, but, the level 3 RIG suit from Dead Space 1 is the most known suit to gamers, sooo, my lover and I decided to dedicate our very own first intructable guide to the "Dead Space Isaac Clarke Level 3 RIG"

Bondo Body Filler w/ cream hardener
Bondo Fiberglass Resin w/ liquid hardener
Bondo Glazing spot putty
Bondo Fiberglass Cloth
Sanding paper (I used a sanding sponge)
X-Acto Knife
Foam Boards
Bondo spreader (I call them squegees)
Hot glue gun w/ Refills
Disposable Brush for resining
Laminating sheet (for visor)
(8) 5mm high brightness led's
(2) Jumbo Blue Led's
Spare wire
Electrical Tape
Vinyl clear tubes
Spray paints (I used Rust-oleum Rusty metal Primer, and gold)
(Spare Pants and jacket and
2 Leather Jackets (Thank god for Thrift Stores))

Also this build will require- Patience, Time, Basic wiring skills, and some experience or cautiousness with harsh chemicals.

Step 1: Making the helmet

Picture of Making the helmet
We had to get some good reference pictures and some time to figure out how to materialize our plans into the helmet you see above.
I also found some pepakura files which helped us with certain parts of the helmet.
We constructed it out of cardboard, and put it together with hot glue.
As for the detail parts, we had a lot of foam boards laying around and so we just looked at reference pictures and cut them out and also were glued to the helmet. (Black Parts)

I'm working on my own project and find bondoing near impossible to get smooth. Got any tips for me?

Nice costume. I'm working on my Dead Space costume right now. Hope it turns out as good as yours!

Could you walk me through how to wire the helmet please? I haven't worked with LEDs before.

I am going to follow your steps and try and create my own suit for Supanova (A cosplaying convention in Australia). Hopefully mine turns out just as awesome as yours. When I finish, I'll show you photos. Wish me luck (:
i look at this and I'm like *face of disbelief* and then i click this and I'm like *awesome face* and i want to make it but I'm lazy so i say "dear Santa...."
That's funny! And I do encourage you to do this, if you are a Dead Space fan, it was really fun for me and my lover to do, and I am very interested in becoming a professional prop maker, anyway.. You should do this build! Lot of fun!
Awesome Costume, Good Job!!!

Thanks! And well I'm hoping to keep doing props, I love it, but I am low on money.. However, when I do get some I will make other builds and post them here on instructables as well as on my blogspot.

Thank you! It took some determination, but I think it came out great for a first time cosplay / prop : )
you should make the standard weapon he uses throughout the game (cant remember the name of it, sorry...)
you can find the pep files for it online, would be awesome with this build
