Here is Detail Article about Cameron Smith Space SuitGrey Havoc said:https://science.slashdot.org/story/18/07/27/219203/an-open-source-diy-spacesuit-is-about-to-get-its-first-life-or-death-test
My first impression on seeing the "suit" is that it looks like a harness for wire work (pre-water tank thinking for Zero-G simulation) and it is what ever systems are in that helmet that are being tested. With no neck protection and just shirt sleeves on his arms, that does not look like a pressure suit design. Also. It looks like the patch on the right side of the person's chest says 'AMES'Michel Van said:a ID request from Hoonte out NASASpaceFlight.com Forum

The helper is wearing a definitely tired Command Module pilot (CMP) A7L space suit topped with a very rare early red Lunar Extravehicular Visor Assembly (LEVA).
Photo taken at the Space and Rocket Center Museum, Huntsville, Al (thanks, Alan). A Saturn rocket lying on the dirt and this. All very sad.
Thank you for such nice and new pictures.Early Soviet suits:
In Russian language for these suits (and, also, for diving armour), use term "skafandr" (Rus. скафандр, based on Greek "skafos" - boat, and "andros" - man, "boat-man"), but, also, in late XIX - early XX century, "skafandr" - name of pressurized cab. First "skafandr" for aeronauts in Russia suggested by engineer Pilchikov in 1890, but I haven't data about construction - it was a normal suit or massive cabine.
