Description

The costume consists of five main features: the mask, the suit, the chest console, the boots, and the gloves. He's the one who cut the end off the circuit board and then sawed the whole thing clean in half for me. The human skin tones still remain visible on the hands but they have been covered by some sort of material. The suits are now silver, consistent with the general look of the Cybermen which has long been established, but they do retain the metal rings over the limbs even if the colour of the suits does differ slightly.

However a good wine bottle box should work too - as long as it's sturdy cardboard and has as little writing/embossing on it as possible. For the two shoulder and back pieces or discs- it looks like BBC had special molded plastic peices that could go over the tubes.Sign in to PlayStation Network is not required to use this on your primary PS4, but is required for use on other PS4 systems.

New Connectors: We took away 90% of the velcro, replaced most of the side tubes with a larger size and sewed on electronic wire "C" clamps to connect the tubes more securely (yet allow them to be removed when the suit has to come off! The display measures 70mm by 42mm by 12mm thick, comes shipped in a padded presentation gift box and has a signed certificate of authenticity printed onto the back of the display itself. I taped it loosely into place, put the mask on again, and if it wasn't exactly right I made adjustments.

Like the joint coils, these need to be applied first before measuring out the tubing to help know what's going where.I attached the chest unit to the suit (remarkably light as it is) with two long velvro strips from the cardboard backing to both sides of the front zipper on the wetsuit. Metal shoulder pads, apt for 1986 when the story was set, and plastic tubing were fixed together with nuts and bolts. The package also had two switches: one to turn the lights on and off, and a second switch that would change the behavior of the blinking LEDs. Constructed from fibreglass and wood the helmet features the distinctive domed head design which is wired to light to the interior with bulbs above the ridge, a feature which remains operational when connected to a battery.

Then I found some vintage 1930's radio speaker cloth that had a great crisscross pattern that looked close to the diagonal mesh used in the onscreen prop. Those large lamps have been reduced in size and will certainly have been lighter to wear than the originals. I used the same tubing that I have on the mask, and to make things (relatively) easy, I decided to utilize RCA cable connectors. Once done I primed and sprayed the whole belt silver in 2 coats and put it on the suit using 4 velcro strips.

The chest is constructed from mixed materials with a fibreglass shell with rear cover of hardboard with affixed interior details printed on paper these are photographic reductions of circuitry visible through windows to each side of the chest of perspex construction. I knew from the beginning that I was going to have to make a significant change to the mask, because the originals were in two parts that would be fastened together around your head. All of the tape lines you can see in the early pictures are from inserting additional shunts of poster board for just this reason.

But the Tomb Helmets were harder to come by and the Invasion Cyberman had tougher to replicate pipe/tubes and the Chest unit was a different style that looked trickier to replicate so I ended up by process of elimination going with what might be my favorite Cyberman design (because hey it's the only 70s version! Upgrade your style and become one of the Cybermen with this officially licensed BBC Doctor Who Cyberman Full Zip-Up Hoodie. For a variety of reasons - some practical, some personal - I did not attempt to create an exact duplicate of the costume from that show, but it's one of my favorite incarnations of the Cybermen and served as the most direct inspiration. To help keep the buttons attached, I used a knife to create small slits in the fabric and slipped the back of the buttons in with the glue.The head is constructed of fibreglass with thick foil around the eyes and mouth which are backed from the inside with mesh, the ear pieces are clear flexible tubing with solid perspex pieces at the top and bottom to form the curved shape and the interior of the helmet features a black elastic loop which was used to hold the torch in place. I found this forum about 2 years ago and I started working on the cyberman costume about a year and a half ago. We have a ridiculous amount of RCA cables around our apartment, most of which no longer serve any purpose. Instead, I cut the tubing to appropriate lengths and plugged the ends with (extremely} miscellaneous foam.
