Elon Musk shared a full-body image of the SpaceX astronaut spacesuit for the first time on his Instagram account.

Musk hired the legendary Hollywood costume designer Jose Fernandez, who has created movie costumes for the likes of Wonder Woman, Batman, Wolverine, Spiderman and X-Men, to design the SpaceX spacesuit.
