The guy who makes armor and space suits for TV and movies. Chris Gilman of the Global Effects prop and costume house talks about some of the space suits he's made for film and television. He pays particular attention to the plated space suit worn by Mal in Firefly and Serenity.

This is terrific; he advises on the design of working space suits too.

I was particularly impressed that IIRC, Mal and Zoe have matching suits, probably military surplus, but the rest of the Serenity crew wear suits that don't match, which is what one would expect if they picked them up at various times and places. That showed real attention to detail.
