So this past weekend was my first Cosplay, I went as Gambit from the X-Men. It seamed to go over extremely well. Though it is a year away, I am planing on my next one as the title say I am going as the Roceteer.

Just need to ask if anyone has done this, and can give me some pointers on construction.

Not really tutorials, but I immediately thought of this: http://www.tested.com/videos/44853-inside-adam-savages-man-cave-the-rocketeer-rocket-pack/

Yay, Rocketeer cosplay! This is also on my list to do... eventually. :)

There are dozens of people who have made screen-accurate/comic-accurate Rocketeer builds on theRPF.com forums. If you need tutorials or advice, especially on the rocket pack, that's the best place to look.

Hi,
So this year I finally put together my Rocketeer costume. I have a pair of original 1930s Cavalry breeches, a pair of original 1930s boots that fit like they were made for me, a made to measure South Beach jacket and a Studio Oz helmet, and while all of these look dead on accurate, I wasn't sure what to do about the pack. I went back and forth between the film and comic versions, and then one day as I was wandering around the darkened basement of a century old vacuum shop I literally stumbled over an intact 1930s Electrolux Model 30. This is the definitive Art Deco vacuum, designed by Lurelle Guild, and a month later I had the pack Peevy would have built. The thing came out perfectly, and it looks absolutely real. If anyone can tell me how to post pics from a file instead of a URL Iíll put some up.
