Hello. Recently, after starting to read the Hellsing manga, i got in "love" with one particular character of the manga. Montana Max, the leader of the Millenium Group, the Nazi group that just loves to bother Alucard.

So, i want to cosplay him to a con that's going to happen here. I will naturally not wear the swastika since i'm still to see a page where he actually wears one.

So, heres a pic so you can help me:

What i want to know is:
Where to find that type of hat.
What iis the insignia at the other side of the SS symbol? His rank insignia (Major)?

Any help will be needed, thank you.

Try some police/army navy supply stores online and around town. There's bound to be something you can put some fabric over. As far as the insignia, google "SS officer uniforms" and see what you can find. WWII German uniforms are rather popular among recreationists.

You might be able to modify a costume hat, such as the ones from this page...

(search google to find more hats)

If you want more information, I know Tsumanne is a reenactor, and he knows a LOT about German uniforms. He's a member of this site, just search "members list" for his name, then PM him.
