Anybody know where I can get a good replica suit for $400 or less?
Believe me, you get what you pay for with these suits. You won’t find what you’re looking for in that price range unfortunately. Maybe if you find someone desperate to get rid of one for $400, or you could get the cheaper “80’s” version of one of these from Action Costumes for $500. Just search the ‘Bay. I don’t recommend dealing with them though from personal and others’ experiences
 
When I start sourcing pieces for this cosplay I'll contact you, I'm willing to pay that for those and I can just make the rest myself. Any suggestions for specific bodysuits that are good for a base to start from? I hjave zero sewing experience and starting with a bodysuit would be easiest for me.

I don’t have any suggestions for that unfortunately. If you’re going to make your own, you’ll need a machine that can do a stretch stitch or a better yet a serger. You can’t just stitch stretch fabric on a regular sewing machine or the seams will pop. Look up some DIYs on YouTube....

Where can I get a Christopher Reeve Superman suit only without the cape?

Only place I recommend is Super.Costumes. You can look them up on Facebook. Company in Argentina. You can get everything from them made to order except boots. Currently I don’t have a good answer for a recommend boot maker.
