About this deal

I found this forum about 2 years ago and I started working on the cyberman costume about a year and a half ago. Sometimes you can overdo it - my first suit shrunk so much I couldn't wear it so it was back to the drawing board. Most purchases from business sellers are protected by the Consumer Contract Regulations 2013 which give you the right to cancel the purchase within 14 days after the day you receive the item. An original 1960s Cyberman helmet used in the production of the long running BBC television series Doctor Who, during the reign of Patrick Troughton as The Doctor.

Because neoprene absorbs the paint it takes *several* coats and a primer to get it to really gleam silver. 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! Presented on a wooden plinth the helmet stands approximately 20" high and remains in good production used condition with some wear and minor chipping to the still original paint work. One of the nice things about choosing a Cyberman for a costume is that they appear different each time the monsters are resurrected on Doctor Who, so you have a lot of leeway in terms of design choices, and a lot of incarnations from which to draw inspiration. The material breaths very well and the one night I have worn it so far I wasn't sweating any extra because of the suit.For a variety of reasons - some practical, some personal - I did not attempt to create an exact duplicate of the costume from that show, but it's one of my favorite incarnations of the Cybermen and served as the most direct inspiration.

It is believed that 11 Cybermen were made for the serial with few of these known to be in existence today, at least two were modified for a later Cyberman adventure - The Wheel in Space. For instance, instead of flesh the forearm was supposed to contain shiny rods and lights, whilst beneath the hairline was also a metal plate. so I added a dark blue photography gel to the eye holes inside and a stetch of black nylon from some pantyhose for the mouth and they worked fine.

Those large lamps have been reduced in size and will certainly have been lighter to wear than the originals. I stitched two seams into the back of each hand, just for decoration really, then painted it all silver. Generally the look is identical but when we analyse the details there are subtle changes that have hopefully made the costumes more bearable for the actors inside. Like the Invasion Cybermen, I always assumed the Revenge version used a Scuba Wet Suit for the base.Read more about the condition New with tags: A brand-new, unused, unworn and undamaged item in the original packaging (such as the original box or bag) and/or with the original tags attached. Like the joint coils, these need to be applied first before measuring out the tubing to help know what's going where. Although the lights inside the box are not canon (I think the screened central box is supposed to have something to do with respiration), I really wanted some stuff to light up. I refolded any loose hanging metal underneath- (pretty easily moldable aluminum here) and then used duct tape on the underside to smooth out those rough edges to avoid chaffing.
