View Full Version : Bertha Cosplay Help

Hey there, everyone. I was looking for some recommendations and tips on Bertha's cosplay.

Here's a picture: http://www.relyonhorror.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/04/bertha.jpg

First Question: I have a gasmask that looks quite similar to hers minus the pieces on each of her lower jaw. My question is, how would you go about making the eye lenses blue? I already figured out a way to make them glow but I don't know how to make it where you can't see my eyes behind the lenses.

Second Question: Does anyone have any suggestions on where to find her knee pads and boots? I figure they are each custom but I wouldn't mind searching for something similar and are able to fit to a woman's frame. I've checked at the Evike store, Airsplat.com and Dick's Sporting Goods but most of the items aren't what I'm looking for. If anyone has any other websites to check out, then please let me know.

Thank you in advance!

Thank you so much! I'll definitely look into it. I want to have this costume ready for Otakon this year. I've been having problems finding the right boots and was ready to just do a regular leather boot. As for the knee pads, those are definitely custom made but I just found some regular adult black colored kneepads so I might paint the black part silver or just leave it be until I can commission a proper pair.

I love your Vector! Very badass! I'm looking forward to cosplaying Bertha since she'll be my first villain character I'm dressing as, lol. XD

Awesome! An entire team together would be perfect! LOL! I shall! I'm working on the gas mask at the moment to get the lenses blue and glowing. I've tried the LED light but found myself being blinded by it so I'm trying another method that'll be a bit easier on the eyes. That and perhaps getting a chance to try and make a prop knife for the first time, which will probably be a fail, LOL! XD

Yeah, I've been looking for that stuff and had to specially order it through Michael's since they had none in stock. I'll have to try that El wire out though. LOL, yep, I've been searching around for those I've found some knives/machetes to work with just in case things don't work out with making my prop.

Yeah LEDS are brighter and to me, better. The El wire kits are cheap, 10 dollars for kit 10 dollars for shipping, it works and is not "overly bright" but in daylight you cant even tell i have them on! lol

Where you can buy El wire at? Is it something that can be purchased in a hardware store or do you have to specially order it over the internet? I wanted to give it a try.

I could only find it on the internet, this is the best place: elwirepros(dot)com then go to "Portable" kits, you pick the color and the footage, 3ft is more than enough for a gas mask!! lol i got the standard blue color!!!

I actually got a mask for Bertha already, but that would be an excellent choice for a Lupo cosplay. I plan on doing her later too and that would be an great model to use. Thanks for the information.

That's pretty much exactly the one I bought for Bertha. The other gas mask suggested might not be too bad for someone looking to do Lupo.

The C3 would probably be the way to go based on the size of the mask, but the details still look kind of like the S10 to me. Or even one of the newer FM12's. But yeah, in terms of proportions, the C3 is probably the best thing.

Oh, and when I saw this:

Divine Arion, just so you know your Bertha knives are now painted and weathered! I'm just waiting for the stuff to completely dry, and then I'll be adding the handles and drilling the lanyard hole at the end of the tang.

Unfortunately I can't find my USB cable so I can't post the pictures I took! Anyways, they should be shipping out to you tomorrow. ;)

That's Lupo, the team's captain. You can hear Beltway call her that when he's setting up the bomb.
