The Fremen may have had only one way to make a stillsuit, but in the modern day, we have access to more supplies than they did on Arrakis. Lake fashioned his stillsuit from super glue, a black leotard, rubber latex, black flex tubing, and more. Here are the basics:
I got together some materials: 1/4″ thick minicell foam, tubes of goop, lots of super glue, 1/4″ black flex tubing, black leotard, rubber latex and black acrylic paint. I borrowed a mannequin from a friend who has a clothing boutique and put the leotard on it. Then I started with all the tubing networking. Once all the tubing was secured I went to work cutting and glueing the foam to the leotard.
For the puff pockets I rolled the foam into cylinders and glued onto flat foam. Once all the foam was secure I mixed 3/4 latex and 1/4 black acrylic and painted the suit. The leotard was painted with a aerosol black fabric paint. Then I used an old phone ear piece and tubing to make the nostril/ear piece. I topped it off with blue sclera contact lenses and carried a bag of spice around with me at the party.
