"Sky Suit" Costume
You have come to this page because you liked the looks of a Costume in the Picture Gallery called "Sky Suit"
Philip, who's vision this particular "Sky Suit" was... has a desire to showcase this creation and there-by get the news out... of the serious, professional talents of the man, Sid Garrand, who actually BUILT this magnificent, futuristic soldier suit.
Also, he wants to provide anyone further interested, in a link to Mr.
I decided to build this page because Philip seems a very sincere person who's main, driving force in this matter, seems to be to say "Thank You" to his very talented friend. Sid Garrand.
I am going to post the letter that I recieved from Philip at the bottom of this page. Then you will get a better idea of how this whole thing came about Ü
Airborne Soldier of the Future
So there you have it! Pretty cool
As promised(up top Ü)..Here is the letter that I recieved that promped
me to put this page up.
My name is
Philip Shaw. I am from Ashburn, VA. This past summer I worked with a friend of mine - Mr. Sid Garrand from
Georgia - who specializes in sculpting armor
costumes out of a high-grade liquid polymer resin. Together we came up with this version of an original costume of his he calls the "Sky Suit". It is
supposed to represent some kind of airborne soldier of the
future. This suit was originally conceptualized by
Sid Garrand in 2006, but over the summer I gave him some ideas to modify the color scheme to give it
more of a
"stealth" look. This particular suit took a couple
weeks to manufacture out of his existing molds. Sid
did the molding, assembling, and painting, and I
just funded the project :) Here are some pics I took outside
my house. You can see Sid's other
