Diving Suit

My Diving Suit. Elements are pulled from various examples of diving suits over the years.

I used pattern from Lost Wax for the helmet. The costume is rough around the edges, both as I built it for camera use and I was able to make this absurdly cheap! All in I am at less than $100.

The suit is what I believe to be a sky diving jumpsuit, found at the thrift store. The diving weights are foamular, coated and painted. PVC and garden hose, ropes and straps I all had around the shop.

Great job. My Dad was a Navy Diver and EOD member. I have a great photo of him in his Mark V suit that looks like this.
