At the end of the day the weighted companion cube must euthanised in the emergency artificial intelligence incinerator :(

Once I get back from uni I should be starting work in earnest on my costumes, I'll probably just upload pictures straight to my Flickr account rather than to here. Can't wait to see other people pictures :D

Is it just me, or does everything GLaDOS say have another alternative sinister meaning to it? x'D

Continuing my trend of really freaking obscure characters, I'm going as a Saxtonette if my boyfriend DOES get the guts to go as Saxton Hale ;)

Try military surplus stores online. American ones are more likely to have them, I think. If you can find just a helmet liner I'd go with that, it's cheaper and lighter than a full helmet and still looks accurate. I think it'll need spraypainting regardless of what you get. :>

This thread is particularly useful for where to find most of the less common parts for TF2 cosplay in general. I thought there was a link to some Soldier helmets there, but apparently I'm thinking of an older thread... just check through /cosplay/ for Soldier threads, I know there's a fair few mentioning where to get stuff. Decent jacket also, needs some modding in the form of taking the pockets off and dying it, though aside from that the "long" version is the perfect shape and length.

hur, can you tell I've been researching this stuff for someone else beforehand?

Hey guys, I know it's not exactly the best photo for the question, but could you help me choose between Sniper or Scout? I really can't decide between them by myself. x'D
Whichever one you think I can do justice. :'3

Thank you~
