it is French riot gear to a point, French riot gear is how ever bigger and chunkier so would be incorrect:
This is french gear:
that would be correct compared to one of the earlier pre pictures from the comic but they made it more slim lined for the film. So what I am doing is getting a SWAT Black Molle Plate carrier (this http://airsoft-club.com/shop/tactical-g ... lt-vest-bk
but removing all the . off the back and the front) airsoft version for cheapness and a black upper body suit then make the plates out of wonder flex and creating them myself.
the mask I will probably be having made by the following guy (how ever don't email him for a cost or he gives you a ridiculous commission price but he is going to be mass making them sot hey should be a lot cheaper once he has them ready):http://xtremedesignfx.com/
In his last email to me he said he would have a model ready probably by next week so give it a couple of weeks and he should have them for sale at something like $200 - $350 (he is also doing Red Mists mask if anyone is looking for that).
Weapons, I am going to acquire a Mossberg 500 airsoft shotgun from some where and I already have the beretta.
(more info on the weapons used in the film here: http://www.imfdb.org/index.php/Kick-Ass
the only thing I have yet to figure out are those weird leg supports big daddy has on his legs but when I get a good working solution I shall tell all.
Hope this all helps.
