Title says it all folks. I am attempting a cosplay from my favorite game, Marathon. I am dressing up as the cyborg, aka Recon #54, from Bungie's Mac FPS series. I am currently assembling the parts of the costume already, my reference pic and overall inspiration for the costume is this picture of the deadly cyborg: [url=http://marathongame.wikia.com/wiki/File:Macactionnl3.jpg]Pic[/url] Costume components: Coveralls (Navy Blue or Gray) Baseball Catcher shin guards (Modified with canvas cloth over them) Thick, cloth mechanic gloves (Going to Lowe's or Home Depot for those) Chest plate armor (I will buy a paintball armor and modify accordingly) Shoulder pads (Football shoulder guards cut from Shoulder pads) Helmet (This was tricky but I have decided on a helicopter pilot helmet) - I will also buy a breathing apparatus for the pilot helmet to represent said apparatus in the picture. -[url=http://www.helicopterhelmet.com/index.cfm?carttoken=0&action=ViewDetails&itemid=14088]Helmet I have been thinking on using[/url]. -[url=http://www.helicopterhelmet.com/index.cfm?carttoken=0&action=ViewDetails&itemid=14088]Helmet that is significantly cheaper and also similar[/url]. Marathon: Durandal Weapon reference [url=http://th01.deviantart.net/fs21/200H/f/2007/245/0/1/Weapon_Models_by_DuffMan45.jpg]pic[/url]. I will modify a nerf pistol to become the Magnum A-1 class pistol, and make the Zeus class Fusion Pistol from scratch with wood for the weapons of choice. Mainly because I have more reference pictures to draw from on those weapons than the others. I will be updating this thread periodically to sort show how all the pieces are coming together. I hope you all will enjoy this journey with me and have a wonderful day/night/morning.
Getting coveralls and helmet tomorrow. Pictures will follow.
