About this deal

Honestly, you'd be fine with a pair of pre-made silver gloves, or any other gloves you like that could be painted silver. The design is based primarily on the design of the Cybermen from the 1967 serial entitled "The Moonbase". The decorative touches on the mask include a strip of weird black foam that I bolted around the forehead (I purchased this at American Science and Surplus, from a shelf labeled "(Extremely) Miscellaneous Foam".

My friend has a theory they used fireman suits but I think if this is true then it was for the Tomb/Wheel/Moonbase version. You'll do yourself a huge favor if you wear under armor form fitting shirt and briefs/shorts underneath to help absorb the inevitable sweat you'll have while wearing this. It had initially been hoped to illuminate the halogen bulb but on the first attempt the bulb exploded. I twisted a length of wire onto each of twelve balls, then dipped them in paint and hung them inside a cage to dry (it kept the animals away from them).Doctor Who- The Doctor Falls 2017- As a small group of humans face destruction, the Doctor is the last line of defense and makes a stand against the onslaught from an army of Cybermen, but there is another confrontation due to take place! I cut it out and then traced it three more times, and sewed it together by hand to make a pair of gnarly gloves.

I found this forum about 2 years ago and I started working on the cyberman costume about a year and a half ago. The original hooks and clips used to originally attach the now absent backplate are all present and complete. My major concern here was that the balls are pretty cheap and fragile, and I only had exactly 12 of them.

Once wearing the joint coils and the suit (and with some help from a few friends) I measured out the lengths of what tubing was needed where: 4 for the back, two for the front, 2 for each earm, and 2 for each leg/sides. My shoulders aren't big enough to fill out the coveralls, so the weight from the balls tends to make them slide around behind my arms. Here's what I did to build up the Cyber Chrome Handle-Headed 1970's goodness over the course of 2007 and 2008. Wellington boots sprayed silver were where sweat pooled, just as would be experienced by many other Doctor Who monster actors.

But if you're smarter than me, you will do all the scraping outside, thus saving your living room from having everything in it covered in a fine coating of silver dust. The goal was to retain the basic silhouette of the Cyberman without distorting things too much with my giant head.To help keep the buttons attached, I used a knife to create small slits in the fabric and slipped the back of the buttons in with the glue. All of the tape lines you can see in the early pictures are from inserting additional shunts of poster board for just this reason. Thanks to my good friend Alexi, a new one was crafted out of L-200 foam, using insulating 1" diameter tubes for the edges (which were cut in half and barge glued over the top/bottom for the trim) and put over the old belt to secure it back onto the suit. I may upgrade to these but honestly I like the length of the costume gloves (so they won't slip out from the sleeve), the dexterity they give me. Some velcro strips on the back of the console, and stitched to the front of the suit, help to stabilize the chest piece while I am in motion.
