    You think someone, sometime, made a outfit for Cosplay. The problem is I cannot find anything on the internet...

    The Vault Suit definitely wasn't that tight, but at least the guy's trying.

    I sure hope not. The Vault Dweller would've died of exposure within a few days at the most.

    And...that is why the Vault Dweller was buffed and not a normal built person... :lol:

    Oh yes it was.

    Wasn't that shiny though. But give it time and a few runs in the desert and it'll be good

    I love the new Bethesda bastardized VD suit because its more reasonable(and I admit it does look cool), but hate it because it isn't spandex and like the original.

    I've always wanted one of these things just to say that I had it, even though the likelihood that I'd ever actually wear it is deep, deep in the decimal percentiles. The makeup of the suit is always about where I stopped in my intellectual exercises... first of all, I could never quite determine what to do for shoes, or what color they should be. In all the FO1 and 2 cinematics, I don't think there was ever a clear shot of vaultdweller footwear, but from what little I could glean from the "Bad Ending" of FO1, the boots we see the Vault Dweller wearing at the end of the game are aftermarket additions. Then there's the fabric-- it's thin and form-hugging, it's clearly a 1 piece jumpsuit, and yet it just doesn't quite look like or fall like Spandex. That could be due to graphical limitations at the time of programming, but it's still the look that we're all used to for the vaultsuit, and the one I think anyone attempting a facsimile would endeavor to capture.

    I guess that Elarra (from the Steel Paladins forums) and her significant other-type were in the process of making themselves vaultsuits once, but I'm kind of a community dinosaur, and as I've been out of the loop for awhile, I'd be hard-pressed to say whether Elarra OR the Paladins are still even around anymore.

    I think the Bethsoft version makes sense from a logical design standpoint, but a huge part of the appeal of Fallout's physical design was that it wasn't entirely logical, that it held true to the retro-future theme even, and especially, in those places where the imagined future was at it's least likely. I'd definitely rather be seen in public in the new design if I were the cosplaying type, but I've got no love for it.

    In Daedric ruins, obviously.

    But we're not talking about that right now.

    I always wondered why The Vault Dweller/The Chosen One always had Semi-Bald Hairstyle. Anyways I think the reason the Suit is designed to be Skin-Tight and Fit is probably the vault they are based in was Hotter....California

    They lived in airconditioned vaults... They could still wear this thing even if they lived in Alaska or something, nor did they had to go out that much, so.

    I always thought the way the suit looked had something to do with that whole alternative future thing. It was bassed on 1950’s pulp culture judging from the loading screen . I doubt there was any practicality in the design except you can actually pass it off as cool in the FO universe. Anyway what where the Star Trek suits made out of?
