you would not be the first to cut a suit into halves. it would be fine. and the suspenders will keep em from falling down.

Gone but not forgotten.
I will be splitting my Mr I suit at the waist. It just makes more sense to do it that way. There is really no need to keep it as a single piece. Plus, much easier to get in and out of. A bit of more air able to get in as well.

Your suit looks great. You might want to add some lighter highlights to the muscles to make them pop a bit more. I hope mines comes out as good as yours.

Where did you get your armor?

i would only say that you need to lighten the body so that it matches the head. or darken your head so it matches your body. either way is fine. it's up to you. i just hate seeing heads not match bodies.

What I have seen some do when splitting a Mr I suit is add a fabric ring to the bottom of the skin to make the skin longer. Get an old T-shirt and cut the bottom half off. The bottom part is your extension. Put your skin on your dummy and slide your extension up under it so you have a good few inches of t-shirt exposed around the bottom. Latex this extension to the bottom of your skin. This will permenately attach the shirt to you skin. Paint to match your skin when dry. Then, just tuck this inside your pants when you suit up. That's my plan at least.

FYI, before you cut/do more work, if you are going the suspenders route, you will have to have the top on the outside of the pants. but that should be ok to. as long as your belt/butt and crotch flap cover it all up.
