Need muscle suit.

So here's the thing. I'm building a green goblin costume(humberto ramos kind) and I need to make my self look a little bigger.  I don't need to see any muscles just bigger. I've considered  using bubble wrap but I'm afraid I might die from Hyperthermia, plus if I sit down it would sound ridiculous. So the next obvious choice would be to use upholstery foam, but I've never worked with it before. I've thought about using plain old newspaper and and strap it down with duct tape, but I think that might be noisy when I walk. Check the pictures to see what I mean. One picture is from a comic book and the other one is a costume made by jacemoore on deviant art.

Men's Suit Pattern?

I'm looking to make my own men's suit - i.e. jacket and pants. Does any have, or have a link to, patterns for a suit? I can't find anything using google, but not having looked for patterns before, there may be an awesome resource out there that I don't know about. We are hosting a Zoolander-theme party, and I want to make an awesome suit out of animal/snakeskin print material. As a side note, how much effort would it be to make a suit? I'm not talking something that you could display as art, just something that looks the part, and wont fall apart on the night. Thanks! Alex

LED Suit of light

Hi, I am looking to build a fancy dress costume, and have approximately 12 months to make my costume :) What I would like to build is a replica of the following (or something similar): http://www.gizmodo.com.au/2012/02/night-snowboarding-in-an-led-suit-is-mesmerising-to-watch/ I have searched for flexible fabric with woven LEDs, i have also searched several suppliers on Alibaba for flexible led mesh screens but nothing seems to be quite suitable. I think, for this, i would maybe be best off building the suit from strips of waterproof 5050 SMDs like this: http://www.alibaba.com/product-gs/615439688/business_agent_smd_505_led_strip.html Power would be in the form of the biggest 12V power supply I can find. The only problem here is that at full brightness, the suit is going to consume A LOT of juice... I have seen this costume which is similar in construction, except all the LEDs twinkle (like TV static): www.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DLal9uma1iVc&ei;=nwgtUNT7B6_Z0QXekYGwDA&usg;=AFQjCNENmYUCu_AwYaEAwqAiWSDFRFnUeg&sig2;=FXRYO81ccZavpYyeBsZMyQ This has the added advantage of lower power draw as not all of the LEDs will be on at the same time. I actually much prefer this concept, however I have absolutely no idea where to begin on schematics... Any insights or friendly advice from the experts would be handy, I have a rudimentary knowledge of electronics, and am very handy with soldering. Thanks!

iPhone-controlled LED suit

This LED suit made by uiproductions and shown off at Dragon*Con is pretty sweet. It's controlled by an iPhone although there's no information on exactly how that's done.

Help needed: Slenderman Costume

I hope you are all familiar with the slenderman mythos. If you aren't, then please check here and here for details. For a halloween party in two weeks time, I am planning on going as the slenderman for a multitude of reasons ( I am very, very tall). I am fine with the suit part, in fact I already had all the pieces before I had the idea. The only problem is the mask. You will have found out that the slenderman has a head but no hair, ears or face. I want to make it appear flesh coloured but i don't want to spend much money on this. I'd prefer a simple method like a balaclava and thin fabric or something but I don't think that would hide my eyes enough. Basically, I need ideas for a slenderman mask. Any help will be appreciated! -Jamalam

Fan made Iron Man suit is pretty freakin' great

Anthony Le is such a fan of Iron Man that he built his own War Machine outfit. Based on concept sketches from before Iron Man 2 hit theaters, Le's suit has a motorized faceplate that flips up and down and a spinning Gatling gun on his shoulder. It's an amazing build and took Le a month to make at a cost of $4,000. Great job! Le, a fitness consultant, studied some concept sketches of the suit posted on the Internet. He used thin, high-impact urethane for the armor, cutting it into plates and joining them with some 1,500 rivets and washers. He sculpted a clay helmet mold and then used a liquid resin mix to create the final product. But that was just cosmetic work. He also added a small servo motor that opens the faceplate, as in the movie, and built a gun out of pipes and a motor. LEDs in the eyes and chest-plate further add to the illusion. You Built What?! A Real Iron Man Suit

Couple of ghille suit questions

I trying to make a ghille suit from this instructable and I have a couple of questions. I wanted to make a full body ghille suit, so I was wondering how many more times of burlap do I need to complete this. (Like do I need 2x more, 5x more?), pic attached. I'm going to cut the strings in half before I add them to the suit, if that clarifies anything And I was wondering if the color palette that I chose was good enough. I want a more green ghille suit. I have the three colors shown in the picture that I picked out. Do I need more colors, should I mix some colors, should I leave some colors un-dyed and leave it the original burlap color, or is it good as is? Colors also in attached pics. Also; I'm making this more as a costume, not so much to blend into my environment.

sound-sensitive LED lights that respond to music, sewn into clothing

Hi there.   I'm new to the boards and off to the big festival in the desert next week.  Every year I make some kind of a flashing suit-- usually they are EL Wire -- which is kind of cool to dance in.  I recently took an Arduino course and I thought it would be great to make a jacket that reacted to sound.   Ideal:  Had a pot to deal with volume (of club music vs. speaking) and was able to power a row of LED's down each arm and possibly down the side of the torso. I have a board- I don't have time to program it- I'm wondering if anyone can help? I'm happy to sew it and all that stuff.  Yes, time is tight , but it doesn't have to be perfect! Let me know. There is some budget- not much but some.

What's a maker to do?

While my makings are scarce, I can safely qualify myself as a maker. Halloween is the maker's holiday, the one day of the year where you can make anything your heart desires, without anyone saying otherwise. And I get to miss out. I love making costumes, and I am jsut fascinated with the amount of cool yet easy costumes available on the internet each year. Well, my parents don't let me make aany of the ones I want. The answer- they require me to buy materials...... I am really sad. Last year, I saw the digitigrade(?) werewolf stilts. I was amazed at how easy it was! I made the stilts, and tried going for the full costume (They show how to make a werewolf costume step by step), but as soon as my parents learned I had to buy some fur, they put a stop to my making. That same year, I also found my ideal costume, a godzilla costume made from foam. You can guess the answer. Technically I could make it, from little scraps of foam from stores. My parents still said no, their justification was that after I make it, throwing it out was too hard (disposing of foam takes a lot of work). I have been nagging about that costume every month, but to no avail. This year, the guys that made the werewolf costume are at it again. This time, a cool dragon suit (Which I knew about since last year, I contacted them, and they gave me a cool piece of knowledge before anyone else!) I am not even gonna ask to make this one. Why must I love costumes? Any, just share any experiences where you've found ideal makes, but for some reason can't make them. Indy Mogul made a cool Hellboy Gun, which I was going to make an instructable of since they hadn't made one, but they (IM) said they were gonna make one too, they had jsut forgotten. By some sort of miracle, I'm still making the gun, and my parents haven't stopped me yet. I bought some plaster of paris, some 2x4s, a dowel, and other stuff. GuessI must be getting through to them? Finally, I leave you with this: Easy to make, but I have ***hole friends: (The second pic was the concept pic they showed me last year)

C.O.P. Suit: Personal Protest Wear

Whoever does a DIY version first i will bake cookies, seriously: C.O.P Suit was inspired by the COP15 climate summit. The brief was to propose solutions for, or to comment on, the ongoing climate debate – using wearable technology and design as a medium. The C.O.P Suit is an experiment in personal protest wear, designed to address the by now almost ritualised stand-offs between police and demonstrators – what has ironically been described as the ‘folk dance of disorder’. The suit is composed of an armored protection sleeve connected to a megaphone-mounted helmet, offering protection as well as the possibility of voicing commands, orders or simply generating noise. The suit is designed as a purposefully ambiguous and (slightly) ironic artifact, echoing the fetishistic visual language of protesters and police alike – a comment on the similarity of the means each side employs. The C.O.P suit is designed to be completely self-sustainable – utilising kinetic energy from common gestures in a protest situation (the fist thrust triumphantly into the air, the swinging of a baton or the force of a strike to the armor) to power the megaphone, making rioting hard on the ears, but easy on the conscience.

Records Ahoy!

'Specialist researchers at the University of Nottingham say they have developed one of the fastest swimsuits in the world.Scientists at NASA tested the fabric using specialised computer modelling technique to track fluid flow.Swimmers testing the new suit have so far broken three world records.The LZR racer suit, manufactured by Speedo, has up to 5% less drag in the water than a previous model produced last year.Jess Sylvester, a swimmer who has been testing the new suit in Nottingham, said she felt "like a rocket" when she wore it."I feel fast just standing out of the pool in the suit."As soon as I hit the water I feel really fast, really streamlined and it just gives me confidence wearing it."Dr Morvan said: "We focus on the hydrodynamics of the swimmer in the pool."Ms Sylvester added the suit was so tight that it stopped muscles "oscillating and vibrating" which caused drag and could slow swimmers down.World records set with the new swimsuit include those by:Australia's Eamon Sullivan, who shaved 0.08 seconds off Alexander Popov's record in the 50m freestyleZimbabwe's Kirsty Coventry who sliced 2/10th of a second off Hungarian Krisztina Egerzegi's record in the 200m backstrokeand American swimmer Natalie Coughlin who broke the 100m backstroke record in 59.21 seconds.BBC storyVideo of the suit in actionOdd Speedo game websiteUniversity of Nottingham Press ReleasePast Olympic row over Speedo suits.

Aviary, an online graphics suite, is out of private beta

This happened some time ago, but I thought that maybe there are still some people who haven't heard about Aviary and would enjoy it.Basically, Aviary is a graphics suite (with, amongst others, a photoshop and illustrator-like program). It's nowhere near professional, but the programs are cool and easy to use. The big innovation here is that they run in your browser without the need to install anything, so you can access them anywhere. Besides that, the good people at Aviary try to build a community of artists so that you can easily share what you've made etc. Only a small part of the suite is available for free though , the image editor is free but the vector editor you need to pay for. I'd personally still rather use photoshop and illustrator, but the idea that it is possible to run complex programs like this so smoothly in your browser is quite intriguing.the link to check it out is obviously www.aviary.com

*Insert funny interesting and witty title here*

One thing I love doing with my friends is taking weird pictures. I recently got a suit for free (aww yea) and I saw the chance to do something ive always wanted to do.I need funny ideas for pictures with tuxedos. SO far I got:Get some tophats and take some rich pictures (this ones just for me and my friends, injokes and such)Men in Black When I first sported my suit at a party, two girls (yes cute!) came up to me while I was listening to songs on my ipod, and they said: you look like an FBI agent or something. One pair of sunglasses later, as well as remembering one of my favorite instructables, this idea was born. I gotta make the guns now...Billy the puppet, from Saw. I have the suit, and now I gotta make the mask. I also got a little girl bicycle (dont ask why...)Tuxedo+Guy Fawkes mask+cape+hat=awesome ( I KNOW HE DOESNT WEAR A SUIT! I KNOW! That doesnt mean it wouldnt look cool! SHEESH!!!)Also, Im gonna take a picture of with the Billy the puppet mask and a tophat, because you can never have too many pictures with tophats in it.Can you think of anything else?

Digital Sewing Patterns?

Hello! I have an idea for a Halloween costume that involves using a service like Spoonflower to create custom fabric to make into a suit. However the design isn't just an all-over design that I can just lay the sewing pattern over and cut out, but instead relies on me being able to make a custom design specifically for each piece of the suit pattern. Basically, I want to do something along these lines, only for something larger like a man's suit. I'm trying to find a digital sewing pattern or template that I could open in Photoshop so I could design each piece of the pattern the way I want it, but either I'm really bad at searching for stuff on the internet, or this sorta stuff is super rare/doesn't exist. I could buy a pattern for the sort of suit I'm looking for, but I'm not sure how I would be able to scan or otherwise transfer that pattern into the computer in an accurate way. I'm afraid I will scan the pieces in poorly and end up with an unusable pattern by the time I'm done. So I suppose my question is: Does anybody know if there are any patterns available in a digital format somewhere online either for free or for purchase? And failing that, does anybody know a reliable way of digitizing a pattern that will insure that the measurements won't be screwed up in the process? Thanks!

Life changes, New Boots! Not to mention a suit...

Well I finally went clothes shopping, a rare occurrence for me. Mainly I was looking for new boots, my old ones have holes worn right through them in the soles, which are detaching from the rest of them slowly, the metal spines fell out long ago via the holes... My new boots are 14 eyelet NPS, they're great, though breaking them in is a little rough on it, along with that they're the most expensive boots I've ever had, £105! the last ones were around £30 and so were most of my previous ones, though I did once make a pair of £10 boots last two years, by stapling the soles back on with a high power staple gun eventually. The suit's a good thing too! we were in TK Maxx, a cheapish store full of loads of stuff, I've gotten some interesting shoes from their random buckets before, so they were first port of call while returning jeans I'd been given that wouldn't fit me... I came off with a two piece suit instead, despite owning many vintage jackets and a couple of pairs of trousers I've never owned a suit, or a new suit jacket for that matter, which is cool... Last one, on sale perfect fit on me, well the jacket's only a 38" chest so it makes it a tight fit but not uncomfortable since it has a little play in it. The boots are good and very solid but I'm having to get used to the big soles on them since most of mine have been smaller than that, they look taller than they are on the outside though so it's not too bad. I'm proud of myself for making a decision on things in a day, it's not likely me to buy clothes unless they're impractical or over the top, well the boots may be a little... Also I've decided to quit smoking, went to doctors office on friday having set that date and the fool told me to go on through the weekend and wait until monday, saying that can be my date... I wasn't amused, however I have one left and it shall be my last... Along with this I've got a few job interviews lined up, it's hard getting a chance at jobs in these times but it's a start... My quitting smoking is directly related to 'ibles - I want money to fund projects, and I want money to socialize etc. Next week I shall have a project that's been long awaited by many if I get the metal working done in tech... Speaking of tech all is well there too, course is brilliant and I've been doing loads of interesting stuff. It's seems a bit odd to be posting all this stuff but many an 'ibler has given me abuse about smoking, though it was far beyond their rights to criticize me personally or make irrelevant comments I do think it's about time I quit, 5 years wasting money. Anybody else any life changes?Notable lack of lovelife rubbish, it's too topsy turvy to get in to without a ten thousand word essay...

How to Remove the "Security Suite" Virus and other Preventive Measures

     Well, I just recovered from the "Security Suite" Virus. It's a trojan-style virus that infects your computer, claims that everything is infected, and leads you to a legitimate-looking website. It doesn't allow any programs to run except itself and won't allow you to access any websites except it's fraudulent own. I feel incredibly lucky that whoever designed this virus sucks, and it's comparatively easy to get rid of. Here's what I did. First, if your computer is infected, turn it off and on again. Then when you're booting it up , hit F8 repeataly, so you enter a boot menu. From there, select "Enter Safe Mode with Networking". It will look all Windows 95-ey, but that's what it's supposed to do. From there, open Internet Explorer (I know, but we all have to make sacrifices for the cause...) and go to the Tools menu. From there, go to the bottom and hit "Internet Options...". Then, go to the connections tab, "LAN Settings" and uncheck the proxy server box. Then, you'll want to install CCleaner to get rid of the virus. Installation is simple, and then select "Run Cleaner" in-program. You'll also want to install RKill, to get rid of the other spyware associated with the virus. After that, install MalwareBytes Anti-Malware, to add another layer of protection.  Another method to do all of this with is burning CCleaner onto a CD with another computer and running it from there, but the internet worked fine for me. Another great product (These are all free) is ZoneAlarm firewall. It's a pretty good firewall, and asks you wether to allow or deny each item, which I wish I had installed, so I could've avoided this entirely. If you have ZoneAlarm, a heads up, the program that you shouldn't allow internet access (causes the virus) is completely random letters starting with an "r". And right now, I'm thinking, why isn't this an instructable? Lack of original pictures mostly. Thanks for reading, I hope I helped someone(s)!

Wetsuit for 5 year old With fins/paddles

My nephew was born with severely clubbed feet, and lobster hands. After several surgeries he has ended up with with above the knee amputations, and tri-fingers with a very strong grasp. He receives intensive therapy and support, so he gets all the recreation he needs, plus occupational therapy. Well, he was recently introduced to a swimming pool and loves it. unfortunately, because of his amputations, he buoyancy is all screwed up. I would like to take a wet suit, and modify it to include a hard silicone leg prosthesis, and swim fins, and gloves that fit his fingers, with webbing, similar to what long distance endurance swimmers and navy seals use. I figure I can use off the shelf neoprene for the wet suit, and take very good measurements for the gloves. I have made patterns for outfits before, so I can layout the pieces, and have my wife or mother stitch them together. (they are great with sewing machines) For Bouyancy, I was toying with the idea of air bags made from cordura nylon and fillable from the outside with air attachment nozzles, and stitched inside the legs. They would be surrounded by hard plastic similar to the shape of his prosthetic legs he is getting used to. The torso of the wet suit would be stitched to the legs, so when his torso grew, I would cut along the seam, replace the torso as needed. Anything you guys think I am missing? I will start posting sketches and renderings as I get started on this project...

Bluetooth Low energy and Teensy microcontroller

Hi there! I was doing some research into how to use BLE in conjunction with a teensy 3.0 microcontroller to read various (up to five) sensors (temperature, pressure, etc), is there anyone with some advice on what module to start with or what ble setup would suit best? I'm new to bluetooth so I'd work with the most basic set up Thanks

any interest in a few armouring instructables?

Who would be interested in a few armouring instructables? i'm thinking about doing one on setting up an apartment friendly "shop" and then maybe a few on basic armouring skills... maybe dishing, basic patterning, how to peen a rivet etcetera. I'm deffinetly doing one on how to make your own suit of lamellar armour from scavenged pallet banding.
