body suit needs bulk

I am looking at getting some type of clothing that will give me bulk. It will be worn under the body suit. What do others do to add bulk? I need it mostly around the tummy section (abs).

Thanks :thumbs:

Re: Costume storage needed

Thanks for the replys! I have to thank Mike P. again for his armor party because thats where I noticed his helmet box-----then a lightbulb went on above my head! Foam inserts...for the box. What kind (foam)should I use so I don't scratch the helmet? Get it at Michael's Art store or Lowes?

Re: my first costume..but help needed

I have been talking to the Sith Lord Detachment site for some time now. :D Found someone who makes parts.
I know about Rubies and Ebay and am staying away from them. There is nothing on Ebay worth my time.
Thanks again.

Re: my first costume..but help needed

Thanks all and Lumpy! You all have been very helpful.
With suggestions from a stormtrooper and my own as Galen Merak (beg posts), I still come back to my heartfelt fave, Vader.
I am going to the Chicago Wizardcon Saturday and maybe I can get more direction from vendors there.

Re: my first costume..but help needed

Thanks for the comments! I agree with researching and I will contiune to do so. SO what is my other avenue? I hear that each section of the suit is cast from real molds. So I guess I have find the company that sells new parts and go from there. Lucas.com? I would prefer new rather than used. Thanks.

He is 6'1", and I am 5'7" med build with broad shoulders. Now can it be re-sized? I would find a seamstress since I know 0 about sewing. ...
