So maybe i'm the only one who took inspiration for my Halloween costume this year from fallout.
But here are some pics of my fallout(or mad max) themed raider costume.
What i used/how i made it: I made this in only a couple nights,working on it for a couple hours after work, out of raw materials i had around the house. The overall worth of everything i have on me is probably above $150..but i only spent about $70 on the things i didn't have, including spray paint. I used the bullets from my bullet belt.(so it wasn't any extra cost to me since i already had them) At $0.75 a bullet..the price adds up when you get 70 bullets. (I'm hoping to find some toy guns when i'm off work to complete the costume) I used some hockey pads i found for $50 (the cheapest i could find at 8:00pm on a Wednesday 4 days before Halloween). Sprayed them black and got a fake spiked collar from a costume shop. Chopped them up and hot glued them to one shoulder. For the armor plating i cut up some tin/aluminum cans and hot glued/duct tapped them on. i misted them with black spray paint to give them a rough/weathered/not perfectly silver look. And use some thicker wiring to strap them on..which works better then tyeing them on as the wire is sturdy and form-able without undoing itself. i used some straps and chains to add some totally useless, but cool looking straps (since they clip on/off with ease i actually use them to hold things like my mask..so they're actually kind of functional) The knife is one of my fathers many combat knives i inherited...i also have throwing knives i wanted to strap on..but haven't gotten around to fashioning something for it=/)
Anyways that probably sums it up. Let me know what you guys think. Good or bad feedback/suggestions are welcomed. If you have a fallout/post apocalyptic related costume..post that as well!
(Sorry if this was a topic before..it wasn't on the front page..so f*ck it)
