The underlying blue is a (expensive) flight suit. Boots are Magnum Viking II that I was able to get pretty cheap online, used. All the armor is made from EVA foam coated with Plasti Dip. I liked the coloring, so I left it with just the Plasti Dip, with exception to the back piece, which I did a coat of a black gloss paint. The emblem and stars are made from craft foam and painted with acrylics. The chest piece is held together by contact cement, but the strapping is done by hot glue. Strapping is a 1-1/2 in. elastic and the belt came with a pair of pants I bought recently.
