Hi, over the past month I have been planning my next build and have decided for once to make a thread on it. I have decided to build the stranger things biohazard suit as a fan of the show. Over the weekend I started on the build process to create a buck to vaccum form for the top half of the helmet. The buck has been made out of foam and will be sealed with bondo in order to allow it to be smoother and Even though there isn’t much to show I’ll put some pictures below.

The basic shape cut out of foam, without curve:

Basic form ready to be covered in bondo:

I'm interested to see this. Is this going to be the yellow suits from the lab in season one?

Saw the thread and thought you could use some reference pictures.
Suit was made by Global Effects for the first season and due to the short prep time and limited budget, the suit used elements from;
Apollo space suit - boots
"The Signal" same type of body suit pattern - Fabric was a "Cordura" Nylon like this. It was over dyed to the specific yellow.
Outbreak, helmets (orbital surplus has one for sale on eBay right now)
"Flat track" motorcycle racing gloves (same as was used for Fierfly spacesuits, I think they are no longer made)
Here are some pictures of Winona Ryder's suit:

Cheers, thanks a lot for that Chris. I’ll probably be bidding on the helmet :)

more progress, I was able to put on the bondo, there are a few problems but overall it looks good. I’m not going to have the hinge on it though may add it later on. Here is a photo of it after primer:

Maybe it didn't sell?

There's also the vest & chest box thing seen earlier in the season – you gonna make that as well?

The 'chest box' appears to be a replica Apollo remote control unit for the portable life support system, turned upside down, & wrapped in that same yellowy fabric. I strongly suspect that's one of the chest boxes made for "Soldier" (1998), later reused in Firefly. I dunno what the stuff is on the back side of the 'belt' - can't get much of a look at it. IRL, I suspect that's the power supply & fan to keep outside air blowing through the helmet to keep the 'glass' from fogging up.

I have started to design a 3d file for the main helmet from a scan I took from my physical one to hopefully add the opening mechanism and create a more symmetrical design.

and also was there any good images of the remote control unit to be able to put one together from scratch as all I could find were ones of it on an angle or blurry.
