I started looking at sci-fi spacesuits for inspiration, but I couldn't imagine how I could mash any of those up with that 17th/18th century vibe I was playing with in my head. Then I started researching various types of armor from that time period, combining elements I liked and adding a sci-fi twist, ending up with this:
Not quite what I was looking for, and the proportions are not great, but whatever. It looks kinda okay. Might try something entirely different later on, but for now I spent enough time fooling around with this.

I definitely got too carried away with the gizmos and everything but heated chainsaws FTW!
My inspiration came from thinking about how a single person would be able to hijack a ship to claim it for themself. Lasers to cut accurately, chainsaws to cut deep through thick armor. I also felt this guy would be a hacker of sorts because he'll have to understand how to bypass security. The little robot is a self rotating buzz saw.
I just registered, so I hope I'm doing everything allright. First time partecipating too.
So, here's my take on the topic. I tried to take what screams "Astronaut" (space suit, helmet, oxiygen tanks) and combine that with the "Pirate" thing. Maybe it's too rendered out, actually...
