View Full Version : Need some guidance on Cable(marvel) costume!

Hey guys, I need some Cable help here.
Now, I know the basics of Cable, big gun, silver hair, his tecno-biotic arm.

What I need help with is, what to do about the yellow eye? Should I even do anything about it?

Also, I'm not exactly sure what pants or shirt to wear with it. Cable wears so many different things.
Would camo pants and a black shirt work?

Also, for the arm, I was thinking about using duct tape to give it the color, and put some things around my arm to make it more pronounced. Sounds good?

I never really modeled myself after a character, so excuse the questions.:bigtu:

I would say use a contact lens for his eye. But when I see Nate most in Cable & Deadpool, he is without the eye flash. I wouldn't worry about it too much.
For the arm, I would almost suggest using a shirt with one of the sleeves cut off, and paint your arm in the colors.
I would recommend costume wise. well optimally for his traditional outfit, but camo pants and the shirt could do.

I had to be more creative, cause I didn't really have a big budget.

One more problem though..........there is a chance of rain that day, and a short sleeve shirt won't help me very much. And I couldn't find any references of anything cable wears thats heavier or long sleeve.

Any suggestions? If nothing, I'll probably just brave the weather. My hair might be a problem though with the rain.

His blue outfit with yellow lining is long sleeved, but that might take some money to put together. Its manly to have an umbrella, after all, I doubt Nate would want his cybernetics to get wet!

Thats a good idea. Thanks.
