The Making of a Thermoptic Suit for Ghost in the Shell

Weta Workshop is a place of innovation. For the upcoming Ghost in the Shell film, they crafted a “Thermoptic” suit for the lead role. It’s a skin-colored suit, and the entire ensemble is made from silicone. Weta thinks it’s the first full costume made from that material. They chose silicone because no other fabric or foam offers quite the same amount of detail and flexibility. Tested’s Adam Savage talks to Weta costume technician Flo Foxworthy about the ins and outs of the suit.
