Here's how to make your own DIY Fallout 4 vault suit (minus the deadly radiation)

Nuclear apocalypses are no excuse to not be fashionable. Maybe that's why Bethesda has shared a step-by-step do-it-yourself manual on how to create a Fallout vault suit - just in time for PAX Prime, Halloween, the Fallout 4 release date of November 10, and maybe even the end of the world if you make sure set the laundry machine to cold wash. Seriously, you could get some mileage out of this.

The nice thing is, all of the materials can be bought on the cheap, and the costume itself could be made in a single afternoon. Here's the shopping list: one set of coveralls in your size, approximately 20 inches of yellow fabric suitable for ironing, approximately 20 inches double-sided iron-on fleece or hemming tape, an iron, a pair of scissors, a ruler or protractor, baking paper, something to draw with (tailor’s chalk or a pencil are good choices), a computer and printer.

If have access to a 3D printer and really want to perfect the look, you could outfit yourself with a Pip-Boy that arguably looks better than the official one from Bethesda. Surround yourself with some Deathclaws and Super Mutants and you’ve got yourself a look fit for the wasteland!
