- Sep 1, 2006Something I've done!
Several years ago I did exactly this for a commercial for one of the
movie channels. I built silver metallic unitards. They were made
of a nylon lycra from Impala Industries in Los Angeles. I did full
head hood with invisible zippers (long one up the back of the
unitard and a short one zipping from the neck up in the hood).
The "gloves" were cut right on the sleeves and the feet were an
extention of the legs. Unfortunately, it looked so much like the
real thing that the legal department pulled the commercial after the
first showing for fear of trademark infringement from the Oscar
people. If this is a route you think you might want to try, let me
know and I'll give you more details.
