Just buy a pair of coveralls and a patch. As for an easy proton pack go to here.
The trap can be done with a simple box and wire. As for the containment unit, yet another box, but remember to add your details when useing these boxes.

Ok, I took the expensive way of making one and ordered a flightsuit from my local army/navy surplus store. Amazingly it only cost around $110 to make the whole thing. For the tube though I bought 2 end plugs for plumbing and 2 female connectors. I attached the hose to both of those then I drilled holes in the end of the connectors and sewed one onto the back pouch on the belt and the other one onto the leg of the flightsuit.. That's just how I did it, but there's probably an easier way. I just thought I'd throw that in in case it might help you.

I think it's fun to use the "it would be bad" and "biblical disaster" quotes sometimes when telling someone about how things could be bad. You know, just to see their reaction.

What price are flight suits and what price are coveralls because from what I have seen the coveralls are more expensive, also where can I get detailed pics of the cheap suits and pack, the trap and unit shouldnt be a problem.

I made one for about $25 dollars a few years ago. It involved a painters white jumpsuit. Tan Dye. Green 3-Holed Pistol Belt (came with canteen). Intergalactic Trading Patch. Embroidered Name Patch. Some Army boots of my fathers.

Nothing fancy.. but it worked.

Ok, from what I remember of the prices:
Boots : $45
Flightsuit: $45
Nametag(s): $15
Tan 3-hole pistol belt: $2
Tube for leg (and connectors): $10
No-Ghost logo patch: $12
I made both pouches that went on the belt. But that what it cost me.. I know it's pricy, but I think that someone on here mentioned a way to get a cheap pair of coveralls. Most of the other stuff is optional though. I posted on here about it as I was making it and I'm sure that Ectoman could find the posts somewhere in the archives of the prop board if you wanted them.. I think I titled them "flightsuit progress: #" if I'm right.
