Step 1: Materials
mirrored material (3 2x2 sheets)
2 24" plastic domes
velcro (heavy duty)
2 2" wide silver belts
Utility knife (with plenty of extra blades)
Hot glue gun
Dremel cutting tool
mirror cutting tool
Battery operated lights
ipod shuffle with speakers
Step 2: Cut domes and velcro together
Using a dremel tool, (with help from my friend Dave) I cut out each dome's top and bottom to fit around my body. This step was made easier by taking rough measurements of my bust and bottom using wire shaped around my form and then sketching it on the domes.
I used industrial strength velcro (available at Home Depot) to attach the sides of the domes together. It makes an amazingly strong bond! After lining both edges I also made a velcro "hinge" on the interior of one side to make it easier to put on and take off.
I celebrated getting this far by dancing around doing the robot.
Step 3: Attach straps and pad/cover edges
I cut two silver belts (orienting the buckles on my shoulders, easily accessible) and hot glued them to the interior of the domes. Later, I reinforced the straps with gaff tape to help hold up against the weight of the mirrors.
I covered the sharp cut edges of the domes with foam tape to pad them. Then I covered all edges with silver tape, to disguise where the mirrors ended.
