Prompt: We were to design a personal body cover in the form of an exoskeleton. This exoskeleton/skin could cover our face, arm, leg, or any other body part of our choice.

I wanted to build a structure that would function to protect the skull, provide neck support and reinforce the ligaments attached to the head, neck and spine.
