I have always loved the Gravity suit. To me the Gravity suit is her best suit, so I wanted to do something special for it. The first thing I did when looking at all the different parts is I decided to make her SM Gravity suit out of the DD kit. So what I did was cover up all the "lights" parts in her chest, shoulders and legs with putty. I also extended the chest, because the way the kit is originally makes it look to small and narrow. Then I thought to myself, "would it be possible to add lights in the kit? I would need a power source. Where would it go? How will I do it? How would I turn the lights on and off?" After thinking about it for about a week or two, I finally came up with the solution. I figured the best spot to add the power source would be in her canon. Its only fitting. So I dug out the canon to add the batteries and created a switch for the lights. A full review can be seen over at the "Shinesparkers" website.

Thanks. It took a while to figure where to put the batteries. Originally I was going to store them in her back. But there isnt enough room back there.
