This costume was inspired from the japanese splatter-gore fest film "Meatball machine". In the movie, alien parasites come to earth and infect humans, turn them into their hosts and mutate them into bio-mechanical monsters to battle eachother. The movie is in the style of japanese splatter-gore film classics like "Tetsuo: the iron man", "Tokyo gore police" and "Machine girl".
This costume was made from a set of football pads, some torn up- bloody bits of a t shirt, electrical wiring, PVC pipe parts and foam pipe insulation.
The goggles are standard cyber-goggles that have removeable studs. So with the studs removed, more wires cam be placed through the open holes.
My weapon of choice for this costume is a machete (taped to my hand using PVC tape).
