I think I'm going to be a Cyborg for Halloween...and I was wondering if anyone had any pictures or ideas that would help me out. Posting soon would be greatly apreciated because I am going to start making it within the next week or so to get an early start.

I never saw that movie so I dont know what you are talking about...I'm talking about the 'borgs from startrek...kinda...there was this show or something called cybernaughtyka..the designer was inspired by startrek...everything looked cool (I saw a story in the paper) but the pics didnt show everything too clearly...

Yes I was inspired by the Borg to be exact.   I'm glad you thought it looked cool.
I can't tell you what I did exactly, but I can most definitly assist you in how to look like a cyborg.

Hey sweetheart,
Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner, I was busy with another show.  AH yes the adhesive that makes everything work. Actually it's really hard to find, it is a form of liquid latex, but it's the same thing I made the actual face piece out of so it bonded to both the model's skin and the mask very well. However you have to get it from this place where you need to be a member.   

What I can tell you  (cuz I can't give away all my dirty little secrets since that's what sets me apart from everyone else)  any form of liquid latex or spirit gum should do the trick.  If you have a car I suggest heading to Kerri's costumes in St.Albert. They tend to be WAY WAY cheaper than the folks at shirley potters...PLUS they do keep a pretty good supply on hand all year round. If they don't have it, they'll order it in. Shirley Potters wont unless it's halloween. 
If you're going to order anything in at shirley potters you should reconsider as they've misplaced my orders two years in a row.

Hope this is of some use to you ! 

And thanks for your wonderful comments.

For mechanical-looking stuff on your costume , go to a hardware store or radio shack and go nuts.  Seriously.  That's how I did a lot of stuff on my Ghostbusters pack and my Predator costume.  Some metal pipe fittings, assorted junk spraypainted silver, cheap vacuum hoses, and some cheap wire from the dollar store will make anything look high tech. 

Liquid latex isn't the greatest adhesive, it's better used as something to blend your prosthetics into your skin.  I'd reccomend either spirit gum or something called pros-aide, or prosthetic adhesive.  Spirit gum is good if you don't wanna put too much work into it and just wear it for a few hours, pros aide holds for hours comfortably but needs pros-aide remover in order to get it off without like tearing your skin off.  (Spirit gym also smells really weird, and if you sweat, it crystallizes.)

Just check your phone book for "costume stores", they can help you with your makeup and adhesives.  There's also a ton of websites, just search for something like "special effects makeup".

You could use get some short glow-sticks and strap them to your forearms. For those tubes the Borg have, you could use PVC tubing. You'd probably have to paint your face pale greenish-grey or white and wear the biggest boots you can find! Grin

   Might I suggest the Science Surplus website?  http://www.sciplus.com/

   They have tons of stuff.  You could even get a bunch of colored wire and go nuts.
