Current cosplay me and my boyfriend has been working on.
>>9956289What is it a cosplay of?
>>9956289Is that a confederate flag on your hat?
>>9956487I was going to say it was a Novorossian flag (which isn't really all that better), but yeah that's deadass a confederate flag.
Working on a XOF cosplay right now because I love the fuck out of their uniform. Trying to decide whether I should get one of the German blue-gray coveralls or the Miltec Gray ones. I feel like the German ones will be higher quality I just don't want to go through the effort of finding one in size too fucking tall.>>9955473>GreyShopAlright, this has to stop. >>9956547>>9956487Proper term is a rebel flag. Confederate national flag is different. Rebel flag is the naval jack of the Confederacy.
>>9956289I actually did cosplay with my gear at the last Mega Con, I'll send pics when I get home>>9956547It's a pvc Confederate flag that I have for shits and giggles (old pic related)
>>9953269OP better put varusteleka.com on that pastebin, it's one of the biggest and best surp (and non surp) sellers in Europe, if not the worldvery likely going to run a military cosplay to my September con with my SO just because I can't be bothered to put something more elaborate together and we're both volunteering, will post when that happens
>>9956765>American flags on gear>But also rebel flagsEdgy
>>9956849Tbh it was for a threeper picture
>>9956711>Proper term is a rebel flagRight right. Even so, I don't care about it but some people might feel strongly
>>9956711whats wrong with greyshop?
>>9955473I mean, better than the super expensive shit on ebay surely? >>9956289That is some OC shit and not a cosplay, is it?>>9957087Literally what the fuck is that supposed to be? That's not Cosplay. Get that shit in /k/ or something
>>9957439they're overpriced jews and they take ages to shipjust get on some FB buying forums
>>9957501There are 3 cosplays in that picture
Gq is fucked yo. We need to let it be dead for 3 months, and then it will rise back to its original glory!(Yes, I say this as I bump the thread)
>>9957583You know *exactly* what I'm talking about. Don't pretend you don't.
>>9957439All overpriced and, more importantly, most of the stuff they sell (even the stuff that they claim to be used by the military) is commercial spec. For example, their 6Sh122 ratnik suits are a different cut from the ones used by the Russian military. >>9957583Unless you're going to provide what your cosplay is, I'm gonna go ahead and say you've got Rem & Ram and then your standard shooting kit.
>>9959889nayrt but they have a Viridian forest ranger patch and a pokemon/pokeball attached to their gearso I mean it's a lazy as fuck cosplay, but they did tack on something other than generic airshit. It's technically generic pokemon themed airshit.
>>9957564>ages to ship nigga i got my shit in 2 and half weeks
Hi, I just want to cosplay. The airsoft guns are out of my budget. Is there a used/as-is/broken marketplace that I could find a prop for cheaper?
>>9959965Many airsoft stores have a "boneyard" section where they sell broken/returned/floor model guns at discounted prices. From there you could either fill the gun with expanding foam to deactivate it, or use it for castings. You can also use eBay and just look up "broken/boneyard".
i have 2 gorka suits, first is non camo version, second is camo. what cosplay can i use them in ?
>>9960360 Your only option is pretty much the FSB operators from Siege. I was going to say maybe the VDV from MGSV, but they wear Afghankas.
>>9960360>>9960526Oh and the sunrise suit from STALKER is based around a gorka if you're willing to do some sewing for the vest.
>>9956289where exactly do you get face masks that cover a wider area?i dont like how the standard flu mask exposes the sides of your face
https://grey-shop.ru/STALKER-SunriseThis looks promising.
>>9957501Pretending to be military is cosplay anon. Gear queers don’t like to admit that though.
>>9963023Looks like Artel's work, so nice.
>>9959889It's cosplaying as a tryhard who wishes they didn't get unq'ed at meps for pot.
Any Rainbow here? I'm the Buck.
Anyone have experiencing DIYing a harness? I'm hoping to cosplay a Diamond Dogs soldier and a SPIE harness seems quite pricey. What equipment do I need to replicate something like that?
>>9965263Sorry that picture doesnt really highlight it
Best place to buy a replica stabo harness? Don't want to spend hundreds in ausbucks for what is meant to be my budget cosplay.
How hard would this be to create? I have a sewing machine, but not much experience. I also have no clue where to find the triangle buckle. Any help would be amazing.
fellas... I'm looking for a vest similar to leons here, but i'm not quite sure what i should be looking for. ignore Sora this is honestly like the only clear reference pic i could find.
>>9960552Something an HGU-56P helmet and maxillofacial shield?
>>9957087Left one has really swollen legs for someone her age. Seriously, not being an ass, she should get herself checked out. That amount of water retention in her legs for her weight is nor normal.
Might be the only place to ask, but anyone have pics of a few military lolitas as well? Was looking for the ghillie suit inspired one in particular.
>>9965263DIYing isn't hard at all. Just requires a little bit of sewing.
>>9959965I got a very good mk14 ebr replica off of Amazon for $35 that fooled some other military cosplayers into thinking it was a real airsoft gun. Look for the chinese knockoff toys.
>>9953269I met Big Boss himself, he signed my Patriot, I've been over the moon for the last week
I'm brand new to this but seeing this pic is the prime reason I'm getting into it.
Anyone know of anywhere I could get a jacket like this in red?
>>9975265fucking weeb shit
Does anyone know what kind of buckle this is?
>>9977479You can find a ton of them on amazon by typing in "belt quick release", its quite common
What kind of rig/backpack is the MGS Merc is wearing?Also are there any other terms for the camo? I couldn't find the exact pattern anywhere
>>9977859http://metalgear.wikia.com/wiki/Gurlukovich_Mercenariesthe MGS wiki is your friend
>>9953269My thread got deleted for obvious reasons so I will repost here...So Halloween is coming up quick and usually I am something zombie-themed. I was thinking this year I could be a zombie Nazi and apparently there is a movie called "Dead Snow" that has zombie Nazis in it. I haven't seen it yet. Anyways, what gear do I need to acquire between now and Halloween to achieve this goal? I'm thinking either zombie SS officer because I like the hat or just a regular ground troop whatever they were called because I think the hat or that helmet would be easy to find.p.s. I'm not an actual Nazi
>>9979904>p.s. I'm not an actual Naziactual nazi plz go
>>9979904Actual nazi here don’t listen to >>9979924You can stayAs far as helmets go you can buy replica Stahlhelms but modern pasgt helmet replicas are basically the same design and way cheaperJackboots you can find on ebay for 30 bucks
>>9979940Nice! I'll have to check it out. I really want to do this, not sure if I want to get a uniform just to fuck it up. For example, I made BP and used it on my pirate zombie costume to give it that certain look of being shot up close with a pistol. Put blood around the scorch mark. Was really a lot of fun, but if I do this one, I probably will just do my face and no ruin the uniform. I have a paper cutting machine so I can cut any stencils of emblems out to spray paint on the helmet if needed.
>>9979940>check out pasgt replica helm>yeah i guess it kind of looks like the stahlhelm>look at stahlhelm price>wow that pasgt is looking pretty good
>>9977859RD-54 is the backpack. The camo is TTsKo "Butan" camo, very hard to find. I just dyed some Rothco "urban" BDUs
Do you rike it?
>>9980135It's not over yet!
>>9980114You’re pretty good >better than mineI think l put those same gloves with mine
>>9980154>>9980241Greetings, fellow Ocelots. Nice job on you both! We may all three have the same gloves. I am still looking for a Big Boss cosplayer to shoot with, though.
>>9980114p gud >>9980060Only thing you could still do is give the uniform a slight dust weathering. Makes the colors shine a bit less.
Where my FSB boyes at?
Do you guys make your own helmets or do you buy them?If so, any tips for making helmets? I really want to make a demonica, but I've never done this shit and a helmet as hard as this seems like it'd be hard. This also has no pdo files on it.Seems like this would be the right place to ask considering the demonica itself is 'military' gear.
>>9956289>Green Cryes>Sig Sauer MCX >extended magsDo I know you?
>>9959952>Nigga I got my shit in three times as long as it takes for other people to ship???
>>9967371what should i look for if i want Leon's radio? a non working one that looks fairly similar is what i'm looking for
>>9991216I just see a PTT, you can get those cheap on AliExpress
>>9953269i've been wondering if it is possible to import resin kits of pistols like this one to canada? (http://spatcave.com/store/marine-costumes/replica-weapons/vp70-replica-pistol-resin-kit ) will the customs seize it or let it pass? It's also in two pieces so i don't know if it helps my chances of it being allowed into the country, Can a fellow Canuck give me some insight on this?
>>9997364If it was brightly colored or something I wouldn't see a problem, but back when I wanted to visit Canada I texted their Firearms and customs bureau about my *cardboard* DP-28 and they said that it was technically illegal lmao
Does anyone know what specific Officer Uniform Big Boss wears at the end of MGS 3, and where I can get a replica of it?
>>9997964Looks like the Army's green class A service uniform devoid of everything except his service ribbons. He has a green beret with a FOX patch and his pants are tucked into his jump boots.
>>9979940>pasgt helmet>basically the same thingtheyre just not though are they
>>9958286Came here from /k/ to help a friend find cosplay shit, is this related to ya'lls larping general? This is where you came from? It all makes sense now.
Any other Canadians here? I'm looking to do a MGS3 Snake cosplay (generic, I know.) but I have no idea where to start looking for gear. Most things on here are American and cost a fuckton of money to have sent over here/converted from USD to CAD. Anyone got some good websites they know of?
>>9953269First post on /cgl/. Help a /k/ommando find military uniform patterns.I have this one and a Japanese pattern translation guide to go with it. It covers some basic jackets.http://malepatternboldness.blogspot.com/2014/11/i-splurged-for-new-mens-military-jacket.htmlI'm looking more specifically for BDU style soldier uniforms.Picture related, Australian Bush Outfit. Have a flight suit pattern I'm going to make out of of Russian partizan camo for a STALKER larp.
>>9966571That looks absolutely amazing! I'm gushing at it!
>>10001215Just don't be cheap.
>>10000822wait a second is that an acog? what are you doing?
>>10005636Don't tell ubi
I'm new to cosplay/costuming and I'm looking for some advice on creating the chest piece in pic related. I was thinking of using 1/8th thick aluminum and painting it green but I'm not sure what it would look like.tldr: How do I make good looking armor for cheap?
>>9960527>>9963023Anyone know of a pattern to sew the knee pads on the Sunrise pants?
>>9974323Nice! What did you use to make your Patriot?
>>9968198??? Where do u see swell
My first stalker inspired cosplay. Didn't base it on any specific faction or npc but I pulled some random gear together. Because I think that is what loners would do in the survivalist scenario of the zone. Wish I added more mud and blood but I'm happy with the result.
>>10011635Looks pretty good senpai.
>>9968198Could also be loose skin.
>>10011635is good, but i cant help but notice the hole in your pants
>>9967371http://www.redwolfairsoft.com/redwolf/airsoft/Combat_Gear_Vests_Pantac_SVS_Personal_Body_Armor_Black.htmThis looks very close
I've been planning a Krupinski cosplay for a while now and I'm not completely sure what the real world equivalent of her jacket would be. Would I be right in guessing that its a blue Lufftwaffe jacket circa 1945-ish or would it be the plain wool tunic? I just wanted to double check so I could find the right pattern or perhaps alter an existing one if I could get my hands on it. As for the rest of her outfit, I should be able to sort that out easily.
>>9997957Try again another day and it'll probably be legal. Rcmp typically don't know shit about the rules. Rules are vague as fuck. CFOs aren't on the same page. When you phone, the CFO is actually civilian acting like they know more than you, and usually they don't. But you still have to follow their inconsistent rules cause they aren't accountable for anything.I've seen rubber guns for training in stores here. And deactivated guns aren't considered guns anymore.
>>10014424I don't understand leaves man.
I’m doing Cipher (Galm 1,) from Ace Combat Zero this weekend. Kind of wish I had planned it out better.
>>10011635Looks more Metro 2033'ish desu.
I working and collecting on a east-german NVA (Nationale Volksarmee) soldier costume. The whole equipment is original.
r8 my ROSNcouldn't find my mechanix so i just wore my motorcycle gloves xd
>>10020785<< Yo, buddy. Still alive? >>
Would there be any R6 cosplays that could be done without contacts? I recall Pulse having a skin with normal glasses but that might be a little too obscure.
>>10027744how bad is your eyesight without glasses
>>10027744Possibly Ash if you had prescription sunglasses. The first time I went to a con as jager I was wearing my glasses. It worked fine but they got steamed up whenever I had my visor down.
>>10028891-6/-6.5, so pretty trash.I can see shapes but nothing super clear unless I'm right next to it. I could also probably get a pair of sunglasses that would go around the normal glasses for Pulse, but that wouldn't look too great.>>10028903I'm a guy and I probably can't pull off a crossplay.
>>10026136my guy they're like 30 burgerbux on amazon>still turned out fine though
>>10005876>>9964265Pretty sure I saw the guy with cosplaying blitz at tac city a while back. He was a real fat fuck
Anyone know what the clear sky camo is based on?
>>9953269Wait. Is this Warsaw Comic-Con? I've seen this russian guy from the middle before.
Where should I look to order a decent quality maroon beret?
>>9997964It’s supposed to be the old Army Service Uniform, but it looks closer to the current Marine Corps Service Alpha uniform.
>>10043283Here’s the actual uniform item (worn by paratroopers or jump-qualified members of airborne units) No, it’s not Stolen Valorhttps://www.acuarmy.com/products/airborne-unformed-maroon-beret
>>10020785That plane is hilarious
Hey guys, my friend and I are doing ela and dokkaebi next year - anyone know what pieces dokkaebi uses outfit wise? Thanks!
Anyone looking for an XOF cvc?
People who Larp as Military are ultra-fags.Change my mind.
>>10050092its cooler than being a ZOG puppet? In my mind, at least. real enlisted grunts < larpers < real high speed oper8ors
>>10043283Make sure to watch some videos on how to shape it properly too. A lot of cosplayers have berets that look like trash
>>10045347Half that shit looks made up. You'll probably have to make a lot of it or buy shit that looks somewhat like it. As far as the weapon goes, it's an M4 with an EOTech and a PEQ-15. The magazine pouches are HSGI Tacos. You can find some airsoft knock offs for a not terrible price.
>>9966566I made mine by tearing apart a soviet union parachute harness and adding a vietnam replica military belt. I still don't understand why soviet harneses are way more cheaper than vietnam era ones.
>>10043957Very good- if you’re Midwest US then we could maybe shoot sometime.
>>10054191what a shame, im in Spain but is a pleasure you liked it
ALA rainbow six siege meetup Friday jan 11th at 1200pm
Want to buy a bunch of stuff for Kaid but I'm not sure what kind of leather belt/sling he wears, looks like leatheralso is his camo based on the french's Lizard Camo? and whats the name of his jacket, thank you in advance fellas
>>10068192Sew it. Saves you money and time likely.
>Do you work on any gear related cosplays at the moment? Most likely trying to get my Sunrise Suit complete. I need some proper oxygen bottles and a "invisible" way to attatch them to the vest. I want to keep this as screen authentic as possible. >Will you be at Gamescom?Depending on the releases and exhibitors. It's a 6h drive, hotel ain't cheap. So might aswell ditch it again.

>>9975491You'll probably to do some sewing if you want the pockets and buttons to match whatever you're after.Look to 1700-1800s reenacting suppliers for a red uniform jacket, or look into some dye. Either will get you into the ballpark of what you want.
>>9984107A lot of the helmets in this thread are real and can either be bought as surplus or as replicas.For your purposes, look into pepakura threads. /po/ sometimes has them, although I don't see any at the moment. There's also >>10033957Pic related, any gundam cosplayer is probably working with pepakura. They can point you towards the specifics.
>>10026034Post results/status. I remain amused that East German uniforms managed to retain the NatSoc vibe, like the soviets demanded the germans continue to look like the same germans all their propaganda made them hate or some such.
>>10043957Talking trash here, but you've got some seriously smooth skin and look like a twink.Hope it's photoshop doing it, or that you're getting loads of ass.
>>10045347The bottom layer is a scuba suit, but the entire upper body is fictional. I can say that the correct construction for the armor would be a nylon shell stuffed with probably kevlar as the real protection.Could probably get away with a flak jacket for the green layer, something like https://www.sportsmansguide.com/product/index/us-military-surplus-point-blank-vest-with-kevlar-soft-plates-used?a=2138005the shoulders on these polish vests could get you close as well, although I have no clue how well dying a flak vest works. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Polish-NATO-Military-Surplus-Flak-Vest-With-Steel-Plate-Excellent-Condition/292875962501?hash=item4430c48885:g:re4AAOSwRbJb8IeB:rk:47:pf:0This is also decent, dunno if the collar is detachable however. https://www.sportsmansguide.com/product/index/croatian-military-surplus-stab-resistant-vest-used?a=2150427That upper purple layer, maybe cut up a plate carrier that already has appropriate shoulder bulk?No clue on this one. Cutting up a plate carrier may not go well.Dokkaebi is rough but I think doable with time and money. Definitely one of the harder R6 designs, especially for an operator without a helmet.
>>10051386real enlisted grunts get pussyalso mustangs at 18% APR
>>10070479thank you for your cervixwhere are you posted and how much can you squat
>>10070709 Well I'm not from the US, I'm in the german Army, so I am sationed in Germany too, logically. But thanks for appreciating my cervix, few people do, especially here.Also I don't squat or lift much, eventhough I'm fairly long at it now. I am more of a intensity and muscle building kinda guy because no thot ever wants to know how much I can lift, just how big those muscles are. So I usually frontsquat nothing over 135 pounds.
When that Source Engine kicks in
>>10070933Jesus fucking Christ, did a resonance cascade happen in your room?
>>10070761You sound amazing please marry me
>>10070968Tbh I am such a social-life failure that I may aswell marry random anons off of 4chan, as long as you're legal. I mean hey, at least we didn't meet on /k/ so I guess there's hope
I'm trying to find a wig for pic related but I cannot seem to find a one that wouldn't require massive restyling.I've never messed with wigs before with cosplays (very, very new to this in general) so I'd prefer to just buy something pre-made even if its just "close enough".
>>10070933clean that mess
>>10000822Excuse me,my friend and I are trying to make a jagger/bandit duo cosplay but both of the character have a white/gray body armor under the chest rig. can you pleas tell us whats the name of the body armor and if it is possible where to get it?
>>10073144It's just a Russian defender. I need to make the actual crotch guard. We had an entire group of gsg 9 in London in October and they all used the defenders though.
I'm doing Clash's Grim Sky skin for Katsucon. Does anyone know what type of vest she wears? I've been hunting for it this whole time.
>>10009251I am working on a Merc colored variant of the Sunrise suit so when me and the seamstress figure it out I can post some pics of what pattern we come up with if it works.
>>10026136Bitched out of his ruck/10
>>9967371That looks like a stab proof vest without the inserts.
>>10078503That would be amazing, anon. Much appreciated.
>>9953269why do so many people cosplay as umbrella corp soldiers? resident evil has way better designs
>>10086480A Hunk cosplay or the USS soldiers from Operation raccoon city are pretty cool designs, it's just that they are complicated to make, the parts are expensive (importing a S10 gas mask from the UK for a hunk cosplay is crazy expensive) so most folks just wear black tactical stuff, with a random gas mask and slap an umbrella patch on and it's a good enough alternative that average con-goers will recognize. And i've seen it happen to me, how many times did i hear people say "umbrella corporation soldiers!" instead of "resident evil!"
>>10051888>>10045347If you want to be more accurate to the game and not the concept art, she uses a mini-14. I don't know if there are any airsoft guns of that though. The M4 would be easier to find and I'm sure there are some cheap ones. Some of the characters in that game have some kind of scifi armor.
Thought I'd give maverick a try.
>>10088237>mini 14 no
>>10088237>mini 14 Stop it. Don't give advice if it's wrong.
I've been looking for a kar98k model that's not an airsoft model or blank firing one.Just a wall hanger model. Only the bolt that can be move. Under 100$. I'm out of luck.
>>10097302That's awfully specific. You're looking for real wood, metal barrel and sights, and a bolt that works?What's the hang-up with airsoft/blanks if you don't mind? If it's something related to international shipping or legality, I don't know what solution there is short of cutting your own stock (don't do this without a real woodshop).
>>10097306*cut stock and use PVC pipes and metallic paintWhittling sights is possible if you forgo the finer details. A working bolt could be tricky. PVC pipe as a barrel, sand a wooden dowel to fit, then whittle and glue a bolt handle to the dowel? Assuming work/classes/non-neet activities I'd budget out at least two months for this prop.
>>10097306>>10097309Oh, dang it, I knew it will be as scarce as hen's teeth.I've been thinking of doing it myself but I haven't tried looking for references yet. But thank you for the advice.I'll save up for now so i can buy an Airsoft Model but then if they got out-of-stock , I'll buy materials instead and craft it myself.
Does you guys consider 19th century uniforms to be eligible to be posted here? I'm working on one.
>>10069388How did you do the knees anon? Hire a tailor or DIY?They used to sell Sunrise Suits in Russia but they are beyond my price range.
>>9953269why dont you join your actual military instead of larping as one?

Ehy guys i need your help a bit. I'm working in a rainbow six siege themed cosplay. More precisely i'm working on Maestro. Since i'm not a big airsoft player myself i'm having problems finding the armor he's wearing and his backpack. For the camo, patches, gloves, goggles it's fine, i already have those. But i'm having big problems finding those 2 items, since they seems very specific. Can you guys give me a hand?
Can I get away with a different vest for Mute's kit? I already have 3 tac vests from work and don't really want to spend money on another if I don't have to. None of them are zip down though.
Does anyone have any good art of the suits they wear in the Monster Hunter International books? I want to cosplay Julie Shackleford and haven't been able to really find a definitive design, but want to make sure I've exhausted all my options before I just come up with my own design.On that note, what would be a good place for NIJ IIIa kevlar panels? I figure if I'm going to cosplay I should do it right.
How hard would it be to make this ?
>>10110814Uses almost some sort of frame backpack/canvas rucksackHeres most similar item I could findhttps://icanvasbags.storenvy.com/collections/145232-canvas-backpack/products/1077820-military-green-canvas-scout-field-backpack-unisexAs far as his armor youll need to make some modifications to his kit since its custom but just look up woodland camo airsoft vests
>>10110814Kinda looks like Ruskie 6b12 vest mixed with their 6b13 vest, and a fucked up medium alice ruck.
I'm going to put together Diamond Dog's sneaking suit. If I can, I'll buy something similar to the gray suit and modify it. Any suggestions for that?
>>10106280It's the russian sunrise suit. I gave it a proper weathering and detailed it, to make it look authentic. I cant complain about the quality and already added homemade leather pouches to the belt, so i can carry around my Echo detector and first aid kit and display it at the same time.
>>10114446>I gave it a proper weathering and detailed it, to make it look authenticFrom the pic it looks really good. Could you post some shots of the stitching on the knees? I was looking for ideas awhile back but this pic was all I could find, and it's not really the right style.
Hey all, so I did the military thing and now I do photography, so I was thinking of doing a media operator (think combat reporters or Vice in Syria), so I have the 511 setup and the flank jacket, but should I get a Media and a few patches (like say the fake media (so ENN, Weasel News, Apple Media) parches (and I do have a Photosnoper I bought on eBay)
>>10009048>>10081333100% eva is a godsend
>>10112265Most of that gear looks homemade. That would be a lot of sewing my lad. On the plus side, metro-sewn clothes wouldnt be of the highest quality so maybe poor sewing could be excused. Gas mask looks closest to an Avon S-10 but it's not exact. Helmet appears to be a sort of motorcycle helmet or something.
>>10116973Sounds fine to me. The high cut helmets those Vice journos in Ukraine wear look awful but more power to you.
>>10112156How big are you?
>>9965263Why the fuck are jungle boots like this so hard to find? I thought there'd be loads in surplus.
>>10121086Vietnam style surplus has gotten popular recently. There's always Rothco. (I got a pair new on ebay $20 free ship.) If you're size 9 theres a pair of OD green Fox jungle boots for $23. (Larger sizes usually cost more) If you're just using them for cosplay, Roth's & Foxes are fine. Only thing is get some cushioned insoles.

Considering doing pic related but is there a height requirement for military cosplays to be taken seriously. I'm in my early 20's but I don't want to be taken like a kid dressed up for Halloween.
Dumb question probably, but I'm working on a Revolver Ocelot cosplay and bought these shoulder boards + stars to put on them, but I don't know how to attach said stars. I'm afraid of ruining the shoulder boards.Anyone have any experience with these things?
>>10123317I'm 18 and im 5'10 do not worry about height
>>10123960I'm like 5'3 though. You're a fuggin giant to me.
>>10124083Well if you're gonna take pictures try to onlyy show the upper part.
Currently waiting on a SADF battle jacket and chest rig that I ordered from Kommandostore, thinking about cosplaying as a MGSV South African merc
>>9953269That Fuze is amazing. Must have spent a fortune.
>>9953269Working on a Loner Stalker cosplay. Have everything I want, a friend even 3D printed a svarog detector. But I need a functional gasmask for it. I got a gasmaks, pic related, but the cannister isn't functional. Now I am looking for a gasmask that actually functions. Or should I wear it without the canister ? Germanfags don't really like to sell these where I am
>>10125044Tight shorts mean tight groups.
I'm looking at doing a Colonial Marines cosplay for airsoft. I have seen the Spatcave stuff and like it but don't have the cash at the moment to buy a full kit. Any cheaper alternatives? My main goal is to get a pulse rifle airsoft replica, so that will be my initial purchase.
>>10125498There are no nice things inside that canister. You don't want that stuff in you.
>>10125498Make a fake canister out of an empty tomato juice can that's a similar size, drill breathing holes in the ends and spray paint it. You'll have to figure out a way to screw it onto the hose, though. Maybe your friend can 3d print a threaded part for you to attach?
Just need the helmet band and it will be done.
where can i get an am-95 helmet for my IQ cosplay that does not cost an arm and a leg?at the top of the thread an anon linked some shop where its $295
Navy fag here, if you guys need any info on uniforms, ask away. Pic is the Navy Working Uniform Type 3.
>>10126153If you live in US you can find some very similar helmets to the am95 at surplus stores. Much cheaper than 200-300$ range ive seen them go as low as 40$
>>10126135I will cosplay as a Gonome Zombie and slap the shit out of you.But nah Anon, great to see HL cosplay.
>>10128442Joke's on you, I'm into that.>>10126772Why did the "blueberry" camo uniforms only blend in with the water if someone falls overboard?
>>10128626Anon no don't say that you don't know the amount of fujoshi shit this board sometimes is into.Anyways where did you get the mask, and why the old lantern?
>Go to con in my usual milsurp clothes>Everyone thinks its a cosplayThis is yalls fault.
>>10128626They thought it was a clever idea since it’s water and we’re the navy. But in addition to being harder to see in water, the dye was also super flammable, and people would burst into flames who worked in engineering and related rates
>>10128680OUTTA MY WAY, VIETNAM FUCKIN' FUJOSHITSI don't even remember the seller's name, but I got it off Ebay for $75, I think? It had a sealed canister, the CBRN hood, extra shatterproof outserts, the fully-bound manual, and the laminated deliciously early-90's "quick reference guide".The old lantern is there because the characters use some kind of lantern, but you never see what it is, exactly, so I just went with something period-correct.>>10129063>catch fire on the deck because of your uniform>don't have time to think>jump overboard to put yourself out>no one can see you because of your uniform>mfw
>>9953269what kind of PTT is that?
question, how hard is it to get your dick out in cosplay? do you have to take many pieces of your costume off? asking because i have a friend with a very bizarre kink for military characters but when they take off the headgear/mask/outfit it takes out the spiciness for some reason yes... a friend
>>9957501>When cgl threads move so slow you can respond over six months later.It's a viridian forest ranger head Canon cosplay, hence the patch on my chest. It's a line of patches made by weapons grade waifu, and I did it because I didn't have to spend any money. Plus I didn't cut soon enough to cosplay woth my buddies who were doing a Free cosplay
>>10136035i guess it really depends on what you wear most pants have zippers unless you wear something over the front of your dick or if your pants don't have a zipper at all do you have any idea of what your friend is think of cosplaying?
I know y'all hate Umbrella cosplayers but sorry, not sorry
>>10144207yanking that triggerGarbage, just garbage
Helmeted/masked brethren, do any of you use an amp or similar to communicate with the outside? Our group are having trouble communicating, even if we raise our voices, to each other/spectators and I'm looking for tips
>>10145629Since I wear a gas mask, I usually communicate through body language.
>>10145629get a cheap voice amp, that shit does wonders. i'v been to two cons as hunk and my vocal cords were destroyed after having to scream at people what i wanted to say and they could barely hear what i was even trying to say
>>10145745Damnit man, you nearly made me burst out in laughter in the middle of a lecture.
>>10145629Get better at hand signals.
>All my vidya is stuff set around historical warsI should just say fuck it and go dressed as some Spanish Terço with a nice moustache.
in america, do you get to open carry at conventions
>>9953269Will it be frowned upon if I know nothing about military stuff but like the aesthetic? I'd like to put together a cute military inspired outfit for a con but I'm scared people will tear me apart for being a dumb noob. Only thing I know is how to hold a gun.
>>10154226As a massive /k/ fag I would entirely suggest you to make some commitment towards liking military stuff but at the very least don't spew misinformation and admit you're a noob
Rate my cosplay

>>10154355Are we the baddies, Jez?
Managed to find a Medium ALICE Pack, managed to (poorly) marry it to an ALICE Y-Harness. Also got the period-correct Helmet Band for a dollar.
>>10154679looks great except that god awful camopick up some austrian od bdus for christs sake
>>10154693The HECU guys in Half-Life wore the "urban" camo, and that's what I was doing
>>10154951oh god the grenades oh god no
>>10155005[laughs in garbled radio chatter]
>>10154226It depends on where the con is at where you’ll be cosplaying. When I cosplayed Siege at a con in Texas I got way more serious gun and military related interactions than in Washington, where it was just mostly jokes and questions about the game itself.
>>10154226It wouldn't be frowned upon per se, but it will add a whole other degree to your cosplay if you ever find someone that also has knowledge about it.The most important thing however is that you admit your noobiness and not say stupid shit you don't know. That's definitely frowned upon.
>>10154226>cute military inspired outfitIf you poke around on youtube, I'm sure you'll find something that will inspire you and teach you about military tactics and gear.This little Japanese lady has an interest in military and has a popular channel. (she used to also be a favorite on /k/) Even if you can't speak Japanese, watch some of here videos and go from there.https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCrRRaPLGn5Ks2gin8AqOuHQ

I'm trying to find the left side patch but can't on any of the sites I've been checking. I think I saw it once on patch dynamics but it appears that patch dynamics has since shut down.
>>10001215fireforce ventures has lots of good surp with cheap shipping to Canada, also varustelekacheck ebay as well but for most things the shipping will be too expensivethe pain is real for us leafs
Anyone know where a teal/white/slate camo color flight suit might be used by? Or what that coloration would be called?
Thinking about cosplay Anton Slavik from CnC Tiberian Sun. Maybe in pair with my GF as random NOD commando chick (she is not in type with Oxanna from game, so let her be random NOD girl with guns). But still can't decide, usual dress or parade uniform. Should I, or I should forget about that idea with my stupid face?
>>10167706Usual dress with the patch will clue ppl in more on who you are. You got the look for Slavik, I'd say go for it.
>>10070761Stay safe bro
I have a little bit of eva foam left over from a previous project and want to make prop guns and youtube videos. I'm a gun nut, as I expect many of you are, so I want to sort of challenge myself and see how well I can make one. At the moment I only have enough for one handgun, but eventually I want to make the M2 or .50cal machine gun from Fallout 76. What handgun would you be most interested in seeing be made? I have some airsoft guns I can work with as well as real ones, but the top three I'm thinking are 1911, makarov, or usp and possibly maybe the M93r. I'll probably do the M93r later on since the stock will be complicated.

I'm retired Army, if I wore my utility uniform to a con, would it be considered cosplay?
>>10177715>cosplaying as yourselfAnon I think you're on to something
>>10177738kek just curious, though with some adjustments I suppose I could cosplay as a Rainbow Six character or a school shooter

where to cop the Bandit hoodie?
>>9975491Just how accurate are you looking to get to that particular one? At a glance it looks almost exactly like the old Army class A's. Check Ebay and surplus stores cause they've been phased out and are probably flooding those places. https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=m570.l1313&_nkw=class+a+jacket&_sacat=0
You guys shouldn’t buy real military items for your cosplay :/ that’s dishonorable and like you might go to prison if someone found out
Thinking about getting into cosplay, aiming for pic related. Though I have no clue where to start. Any advice for a beginner?
I'm looking for the teal color varient of urban camo on a flight suit. Anyone know where I might find one, or have a pattern for a flight suit?
>>10204452I think vintage McCalls had a flightsuit pattern back when Top Gun was popular.
I just realized this week that military surplus stores are all but dead. I was thinking to myself I need some basic black combat boots for ODST, but I’m gonna be forced to buy something new when previously I could picked up legit used boots for like $20. Same thing for BDU’s. Anyone have a go to website for actual surplus gear?
>>10206416Looks like it's #3252. Thanks. Now just to find it. It's impossible to search their site for a pattern number.
>>10207608Looks like simplicity still runs one though. #8722 "unisex flight suit coverall costumes for Misses, Men, and Teens, unisex sizes XS to XL". $13 shipped from simplicity. Might end up going with that.
>>10050092I mean, they are usually all very gay. I'm trans and I can't tell you how many military larpers want me to top them. If I find a guy into me, 80% chance they are a military larper who wants me to eventually join their role play airsoft group.
>>10207935Couldn't miss the opportunity to reply to 2 month old post for an excuse to brag about your butthole habits, eh faggot?
>>10207961Just anecdotal evidence that military fags are indeed fags.

How are con laws when it comes to (deactivated) guns
>>10131256the only thing is we wear coveralls on the ship, that are navy blue.It makes no sense.
Is wearing an ACU really considered cosplay?
>>10217386I'd call ahead to the convention and ask.I have a feeling it'd still be a big no-no.Some people have trouble bringing airsoft rifles to conventions just because it looks like the real thing.
>>10219422It's actually getting even worse.Some cons won't even allow Nerf guns or toy bow and arrows
>>10048363that's my closet, where'd you get this pic
