For this years science fiction convention I decided to go as a cyberman from Dr. Who. specifically, the cyber controller from the episode Earthshock. It took about 2 weeks to build the costume and about two days to make the gun.once it's done it is reasonably  light and easy to move around in. 
         To make it you need
  • Card board
  • Silver tape (the kind that you use on air vents and the like).
  • A plastic bottle, 3.5 inches in diameter
  • Red and black tape, or paint it isn't used that much
  • A silver jumpsuit and gloves (or if you can't find that buy some coveralls and spray paint them silver like I did)

I made this a while ago and it is what inspired me to make the complete costume. The Instructable is right Here.

Step 2: Chestpiece

         To make the top of the chest plate you cut out two pieces of cardboard with the specifications of the picture below (I felt that it would be easier to show a schematic than try to explain it with words alone). You may have to alter the measurements slightly depending on your size so measure yourself to make sure that it will fit. Once that's done fold the two pieces into an ark so that they lay flush to each other and tape them together. then cover the entire thing in silver tape and make sure that the hexagon is a clear indentation. Next, take a piece of cardboard that's four inches square and coat in in black duct tape, then glue it to the center of the hexagon. this concludes the top of the chest piece.
