Hey all--

Long time lurker finally getting around to posting.

For Halloween, my friends and I are planning to go as characters from the Daft Punk "Around the World" music video:

I plan on being the swimmer, but I can't find an appropriate pattern to use. I've seen a lot of vintage patterns, but they are mostly halter tops. Also, the back is zippered.

Any suggestions/tutorials/patterns/advice you have for me would be awesome!
Thanks!

Are you trying to avoid the zippper? I dont think you can do a body suit that's close on hips, waist, bust and that close to neck without some type of acess.  with that high neckline i dont think you will find a faric that can stretch far enough to fit shoulders and hips through it.  at least not my hips, lol.  you have a pettern with zip, then do it.   
If you want to cheat, go to the party supply store and buy one of those full body suits- they are relatively inexpensive.  put it on inside out, chalk desired end lines for sleves, neck and legs.  Take it off, mark for 5/8 seam allowance and stitch with a stretch stitch?  I've never tried that, but Im brainstorming.
