"RoboCop" was both a science fiction movie, made in 1987 and directed by Paul Verhoeven and an animated series produced by Marvel Productions. The RoboCop character, formerly a police officer who was transformed into a cyborg, is known for his futuristic outfit.

  1. 1

    Gather various sizes of boxes. Choose a box for your head, your torso and two for your arms. Try on the boxes to make sure they fit you comfortably.

  2. 2

    Paint the boxes to match Robocop's colours. Spray paint the top and chest boxes with silver metallic spray and paint the bottom of the boxes black. If desired, mist some more metallic spray over the border of the black spray so that the silver fades out instead of ending abruptly.

  3. 3

    Cut poster board to fit the length of your legs. Roll the pieces around your legs, taping them closed. Cut more poster board to match the length of your arms and roll them up around your arms. Remove the poster board tubes and paint them to match the RoboCop outfit.

  4. 4

    Cut out holes for your eyes in the box for your headpiece. Try on the headpiece and make sure that your vision is not obstructed by the box. Spray paint the box silver and draw the RoboCop headpiece details on with a marker.

  5. 5

    Put on your black turtle neck top, black trousers and black shoes. Slip your legs into the poster board tubes. Put on the chest piece and the headpiece, then slip on the poster board arms.
