I just have to say this is amazing! I was a little confused by the thumbnail... but David Bowie is amazing! You did a great job, too. It looks just like the original. I need to have a David Bowie party now...

When I think of Bowie I always first go to the Labyrinth.  But I love your costume!  You should definitely post pics of the end result.

I read a tutorial once about getting dense Styrofoam from the hardware store (the real stuff for insulating and not for cheap coolers or packing peanuts Smiley ) and reinforcing it with a dowel.  You can use any kind of paint besides spray paint and give it a glossy finish at the end for the electric look.  It might be more work than it's worth but it's an idea, right?!  Cheesy

Wow, looks really identical. Great job.
You could always make a cardboard guitar!  Grin
