I finally recieved the BB guns for my Ellis costume. I have an M16, a Desert Eagle and a Glock 18C, and even a spare magazine for the M16 for reloading
. Now to dye the overalls and make the various attachments (pipebomb, pills and defib etc). Unfortunately I don't have enough money or time to make a pyro costume so I'll stick to Ellis for both days, or I might make a simple scout costume or something. I can take pictures now if people want to see the progress, but the overall are a lovely drab green colour atm.
Haven't seen many medics. To do the medigun I would use something like the cardboard poster tubes. They are big enough and come in various sizes, and a bit of plastic tubing for the connection between the backpack and medigun.
