Hey everyone, lately I've been fascinated with the Aquaman movie costume and how they made it, as I would love to make it myself

I am absolutely dumbfounded by how they made this thing practical and be able to move in it, while still looking like a beautiful Greek statue, I'm honestly in love with this thing

I'm thinking if I want to make this, I should start off with a spandex body suit and build off from there, how, that's where I'm having trouble. Maybe make foam armor-like pieces and cover them in thin foam scales? But that doesn't sound practical, any help is wanted, thank you :)

This may or may not help, it has some good details at least:

Once the artwork illustration team finalized the patterns and designs, the digital files were sent to Los Angeles-based printer Karen Winn of By Design, who has "perfected" a specialized heat process to create a "rubberized print" onto four-way stretch fabric. Barrett's team then heat-pressed a "foil-product" onto long sheets of the rubberized texture, which finally arrived with the textile arts department. "Then we hand-painted all of the final layer of wet-look and tint onto the top of that," Barrett explains. "It's a longish process."
