Isaac Clarke from Dead Space 2

Since I got a good full time job I have been pretty busy but have a steady income. I was wondering if someone is able to do Isaac Clarke from Dead Space 2 for me. I specifically would like the Advanced Suit made. Also would like to have the suit light up including the helmet and the back like the video game.

Here are a few screenshots of the character with the Advanced Suit,

I need it atleast a few weeks to a month before Ohayocon 2013 which is January 18-21st, 2013. I am willing to pay via PayPal starting next week or two (need to setup PayPal with new bank account I have). I can pay week to week of $80-$100 or more depending on Over Time at work I do.
Planned Cons for 2013,

Hardcore Gamer and Otaku, Half-Japanese and Half Filipino.

sry its kinda bad timing for me
have my wedding coming up on the 16th
most of this is copied form other quotes as it is my kind of my standard rant
(mostly b/c ive quoted this before lol)

first open armor slot is Sep. 3rd-Sep. 21

i use good materials and ask
$100 for each week of labor (custom fitted full body armor takes about 3 weeks to do right)
plus the cost of materials (all listed)
plus the cost of shipping (but i my be going to Ohayocon so free)
many ppl are scared by costume that cost hundreds of dollars
and im often out bid
so no worries

he looked to have fairly normal shoes
i could buy a cheap pare and mod them
if you like you can send me an old pair of comfortable shoes
and i can mod them for ya (comfortable shoes are so impotent to your safety too)
if you dont mind that

to fit this well ill need to make a poster board template of your armor
and mail you a copy to be sure it will fit
(send me pics of you in it to confirm fitting/ changes needed)

ill need all of these to start
(plz be honest armor will not give like cloth does)

ok so the costs:
6mm PVC sheeting=$5
3mm PVC sheeting=$17
1mm. PVC sheeting=$11
EVA foam=$7
EPS foam=scrap/free
upholstery foam=$5
black footless long sleeve bodysuit=$52
lighting= $27 for LEDs,wires,button,and batteries
3 weeks labor=$300
total=$496+ shipping (i need city, zip, and torso measurements as it will be the largest part)

plus the cost of shipping the template to ya for fitting

realistically 3 weeks of work with wiring and i ask $100 per 20hr work week
hope that sounds fair
with those kind of numbers you should want to see my work
my photobucket (new pics of armors and props weekly)
my youtube (with dozens of help construction vids)
vids of the construction of your costume would be made for help other cosplayers

and as in all my quotes you are free to use the list and vids to have a go at it for your self
vids that may help you:
plait armor
sewing wonderflex to fabric

ok so one more thing
stuff i have to say because ppl ruin things for everyone else

this is a costume and will not provide any protection from hazards of any kind
once in your passion you are responsible for its care
however i may be able to do repairs for a small fee
do not compete in any event with my work without giving due credit
but you are free to do so
slander is grounds for me to end the transaction with no refund
you are subject to local law at your own risk

um i think that is it for now
until the 17th ill be running around so sry if im cant get back to ya quickly
good times to all
