 The printing and finishing process.  I smoothed the print out with acetone.  This also gave it a shiny look rather than the dull matte finish of sanded plastic.  
 Assembly.  I snapped the parts in and carefully soldered things in place using the smallest amounts of wire possible.  
 More Glamour Shots.  I have hidden the wires under the collar and down the back of the shirt.
