Cyberpunk for men

Hey guys,
I'm involved in a cyberpunk sideshow for Matsuricon and I was looking for suggestions on ways to do cyberpunk for men on the cheap. When I think cyberpunk I think EL wire, neon colors, leather, bionic implants and just overall futuristic looking things. I know I could do cosplay easy by buying a motorcycle outfit and fitting up EL wire, but that's WAY too expensive.
Thoughts?

Also, I have a shitton of circuit boards laying around. I also have a nintendo power glove I was thinking about wearing along with a HP Jornada 690 strapped to my other arm.

I just don't want it to be TOO too tacky...

Using too much of the circuit board WILL look tacky, BUT you can make bracelets, a choker, earrings if you have pierced ears, ect. will work wonderfully! Having the circuit boarding as an accessory rather then as the main part of the outfit will add a nice effect

Uh, a Hp Jorana would be completely the opposite of futuristic and more or less like you're from the past.

Stick an iphone on your arm, that'd show everyone how futuristic you are.

You could do a period cyberpunk, e.g. 90's. Get some RJ 11 (Phone line/POTS), 56k external modems and drag around a crt monitor. It''d be hip, cool and no one else I know has done it before.

I'd say look at Four Leaf Clothing. They have lots of punk that could be modified, but they're a bit pricy... Very pricey...
