No, unfortunately not.  And as far as I'm aware, he didn't actually own the suit.

Downtown Detroit city last Friday. I mean, geez, you accidentally drop one single bit of paper, and... >.<

...

Joking, of course! This was taken at the Animansion convention in Brussels, Belgium, back on May 1st 2009. Cosplayer is Barney, who often does this kind of epic costumes... @_@

... I think I remember him saying that it either was an actual movie prop, or at the very least a perfect replica based on one...

Glass fiber over a rubber body suit, if I remember well. It was almost 30C that day, and the cosplay contest had an hour's delay... and the podium only had a small ladder, so he had to do his skit in front of the podium rather than on it - he sure suffered...!! T_T

That's the Robocop version of the suit, right? You can tell by the blue tint, which was only present in the second film.
(oh...I'm such a nerd for knowing that)

Cool pic, I tip my hat to you! (Well...tip my helmet to you.)

Well... it's not me: this is a cosplayer by the name of Barney. And he was sweating in that suit - happened to be a day with temperatures in the higher 20s, completely unexpected that early in spring...

Quite not, actually - not permitted to enter the contest as it was Animé/Manga only.

That, plus it was bloody hot that day, so I really didn't envy him. :/

Even if you didn't do you, that an achivement to wear it. It must be so hot in that!!

Barney (that's the guy's name) was sweating himself to bits. And it was such a restrictive suit as well - it restricted his movements so badly he didn't even manage to climb onto the cosplay podium... >.<

Still, it's not his worst suit. He once cosplayed the Xenomorph from Alien at a Japanese con - a full-body latex suit in temperatures of over 30°C...

Better part of an hour, as far as I know. It was also very hot inside the suit, and the sun was out and blazing. First time I've seen someone sweat so hard, the sweat literally came flooding from his gloves... :O_o:

Yeah... and worse was, that as soon as he'd managed to get his gear on, it turned out the cosplay contest would start an hour later. With all of his gear on (but even with the gloves out), his movements were so limited he barely managed to get a glas of water to his lips - and climbing the stairs to the podium for the contest turned out to be an entirely impossible task as well, which is why he had to do his skit in front of the podium...

Yeah. He told me he probably wouldn't be wearing the outfit again - he prefers his Alien outfit as it isn't so restrictive, though equally hot...
