So my boyfriend and I are hoping to do a Gordon/Alyx cosplay together. Despite the fact that both costumes are going to be very, very hot in the August heat, I am facing another problem. How the heck are we gonna build that HEV bio-suit that Gordon Freeman wears??

Frankly, my costume will be easy to pull off, but not so much that suit. I was considering just using an Underarmor type shirt for the base. The chestplate and pads are going to be the hard part. We'd like not to spend hundreds of dollars on this project or commissioning it. Any ideas for how to do this ourselves or of a good person to commission at a reasonable price?

Well shoot. That looks like a pretty good idea... Maybe I can scrape up enough time and talent to try that....
