I currently have a Chris Redfield(S.T.A.R.S) costume that I'm working on fixing, but I can't figure out what to do for the vest. The guy that offered to make my vest(For $110USD, mind you) ended up being a total, and complete ripoff, and I ended up having to spend another $15USD at a tailor just to make it fit me. I'm sort of on a low budget, since this costume was over $500USD all together, and dad and I don't want to overpay for anything.

As for the handgun/Beretta, right now I'm currently using an all plastic, black spraypainted Military training gun that my dad and his boss let me use from the shop, and I originally thought that it would be OK, but thinking back on it, should I have made it look more like the Special RPD S.T.A.R.S handgun?
I've got until August, so I'm not in a huge rush, and any help would be appreciated!

Instead of getting a black toy gun etc could use a Wii-mote with gun attachment casing like the Link Crossbow Training one. Not realistic at all & looks nothing like the gun he uses, but it is very gaming related still & no-one will panic in public if they see it. Or do series crossover using a Namco G-Con.

For vest if you want to change, there are cheaper Chinese made stuff for skirmish (paint ball gunning) supply stores.

The last con I went to didn't seem to have a problem with it; they only made me zip tie it into my holster because they, "Didn't want a Police Officer to shoot me." or something like that, because it, "Looked too real on their terms." Even though the tip was blue, and the gun itself still looked blue through the black spraypaint. Other than that, they let me keep it on me. Besides, I can't exactly give this gun up now, seeing how pricey it was, and buy something completely different to use.
I decided that I'm just going to make the tip lightblue, or orange.
Thank you for the recommendation!

paint it orange. I know it looks stupid, but its a lot easier with con security like that. The problem with blue is that its still a "darker color" and therefore, its not a bright orange that most states require a toy or airsoft gun to have.

The vest is an M69 flak jacket from vietnam. Also for the berretta way back on the first release didnt have the stars logo on the grip. Only after resi 3 did it for Jill did they add it for the remake.

So a black one is fine in my opinion.

Yes, I looked into some Flak Vests way before I got the ripoff one, but they were "way too expensive" and my dad refused to buy one of them. I've found some really good ones at a decent price, recently, but all of them are either Large, or Extra Large. And I'm not a man, nor am I large enough to fit something that big(I'd get lost!)
Perhaps if you know any sites/recommendations/stores/etc that sell Flak Vests, that'd be great.

Sorry, I've been busy lately.
Sorry, but no; I don't have a picture of it. The most I can do is explain it to you;
It's the incorrect colour - A brighter green.
The collar is not high enough - off by about an inch and a half.
The material chosen was terrible - I believe it was like--silk polyester.
The sleeves did not go over the shoulder and cut off too early.
Length was incorrect and did not go down far enough to even cover my gear belt - I was constantly fiddling with it when I sat down/bent over/etc because it kept coming up, revealing my tucked shirt.
It did not have a 'loose' feeling like a body warmer/military vest is supposed to - it practically fit to my body and at times, restricted my chest.
About the only thing that was good about the vest was the "S.T.A.R.S. SPECIAL TACTICS AND RESCUE SERVICE." on the back. And I can't dye it, because he used Acrylic paint or some keech on it, and it can't get wet.

What I did for the vest was cheap,but it came out fine;Get a pair of thick sweat pants(trust me on this)And fold it until its thick and wide.Then sew one of them as a pillow shape and repeat.After,get buckle and Velcro (mostly at craft places or Joanns)And sew them together around you in the shape of his vest.For the S.T.A.R.S sign,get a trace of the letter in material(again,craft store)and iron press it onto the shirt.I did this with my RE1 Jill costume,and it came out fine.
