I made these costumes for an opening exhibit at the SciFi Museum out here in Seattle.  I purchased XL mens sweaters from Goodwill, and cut them down/re-sewed to size.  For the insignias, I simply cut out cereal boxes in the right shape, glued on tin foil, and drew on them with Sharpie.  It was simple but it worked and everyone loved our costumes!
