Commissioners that do vacu-formed plastic?

I'm currently trying to gauge the feasibility of a long-term plan of mine, and I figure that this would be the best place to ask.

My ultimate goal is an anthropomorphic Hymenoptera Vespidae V. Vulgaris (common wasp) suit made entirely out of vacu-formed plastic. It would preferrably have a pair of animatronic arms set below my arms that could mimic the motions of my arms or, optionally, be moved manually and fixed in a given pose, wings (of course), and if possible some form of head HUD to aid in vision. My plan to realize this goal is to defer an appreciable percentage of my salary for the next five years, resulting in somewhere between $10,000 and $30,000 saved five years from now with which to fund the purchase of such a suit. As I said, this is a long-term plan. I do not want to consider entering into a payment-based agreement, as my preference is to pay for something upfront.

Given the generally fluid nature of who is in the fursuit commissioning business and who is not at any given time, I know that I certainly can't predict who would be the best person to go to five years from now, but if any of you had to hazard a guess, who (if anyone) would the lot of you recommend?

Thanks in advance.
