    Decided to attach the shoulder bells directly to the sleeves, it’s far easier to move my arms and put the suit on and off this way. used a longish stitch, 3 on my machine, and sewed them to the canvas portion of the sleeves. Because the canvas doesn’t stretch they should be safe from being torn...

    Started painting all the foam parts(A few coats to go) and made the shoulder bells too. The black piece on the shoulder bells was done with a piece of 2mm foam and they were run through my sewing machine to give a stitched look on their bottom edge. Also added a small detail, boot guards now...

    Hand drew the patterns for the knee and elbow pads. Made them out of 4mm foam and heat molded them into shape. The knee pads will mark the finish line for the pants. I also have the ankle guards being painted to continue finishing the boots.

Also attached magnets on the collar to keep that closed. Vest just needs shoulder bells to finish. Also sewed my red quilt pattern for the palms of the...

    Also finally got ahold of some orange bias tape to finish the ab pads. Recently painted the metal buckles a shinier silver and once i paint the orange straps I’ll be able to attach them to the jacket.

    Progress is slow right now but I’m still giving this suit all the time I can. Been working on the boot pieces to try and button those up. Cutting the treads out of a strip of 10mm thick foam and sanding with a dremel. Think I might paint those with black plastidip to make them look more like...

    Had a paint mishap with the first set of jacket cuffs I made so I had to halt and cut a new fresh set. The cuffs are cut from 3”pvc pipe coulper and the center section for the grey rubber band was carefully dado cut out with a tablesaw(don’t attempt this unless your comfortable and proficient...

    And with the weekend comes the boot covers. Planned these out a few days ahead of time and jumped right into making the patterns. To make the patterns I just laid the boots I would be wearing down on some paper and traced out the side panels of the covers. Use my breakdown to break that up...

    Did a paint test on a bit of the handlebar wrap. Paint is flat grey rust-oleum primer *for plastics. Wrap is still really flexible with no signs of paint cracking. Much success! Now when it comes to these knurled rings around the wrists they appear to be segmented into two or three sections...

    Don West Lost in Space (netflix 2018) space suit.

    For my cuffs I picked up a 3” pvc pipe coupler from a hardware store and carefully cut it into two rings, primed with filler primer. Next step is to paint them silver as the orange anodized paint needs to go over silver. I will then be using knurled handlebar wrap to make the center rings. I had...
