View Full Version : RE4 Leon cosplay.

04-16-2003, 02:24 AM
Okay, I've got it all planned out. I'm going to wear:

cobalt blue (maybe a bit darker) shirt
light colored jeans
bomber jacket with the fuzzy stuff on the inside
the AVAP003: 92F Light Wt. "Beretta" airsoft springer pistol
...and a holster for the gun that straps to the thigh.

Is there anything I'm missing? I've only seen a few screenshots.

hm, do you have the hair. you must get the hair right. um...does he wear boots? tes, he wears black boots, and black leather-looking gloves. and there's a side pack that he has on his right leg it looks like it's a gun holster. and there's a fanny pack too (heehee). here are some pics:

Hope it turns out Good! I'm trying for RE2 leon, (if you didn't notice my help topic a few doo-hickies under) I give j00 my luck:D

Actually, I got an idea. Im not sure if it would go well at the con, but itd save me some money. Rather than the airsoft pistol and holster, I'd get:

Splatmatic XJ40 (Black)
Paintball Pistol Holster
Strap Pack-Thingie (The "fanny pack", for holding viewloader tubes.)

I already have the strap pack-thingie, and was already going to get the XJ40 and holster. I thought it would be okay to wear that stuff instead of replicas. Y'know, kinda have a paintball theme going on.

Everyone sure he dosen't have anything on his jacket? The screencaps are pretty dark,after all.

04-19-2003, 07:09 PM
Nope, I've seen the movie. It's just a plain bomber jacket.

04-19-2003, 07:33 PM
Movie? Where?

04-19-2003, 08:37 PM
You can find it here:


It's near the top, under "Resident Evil 4 Preview"

04-20-2003, 09:23 AM
the trailer, you mean. yeah, i'm pretty sure the jacket is plain. i am a RE fanatic after all.

04-20-2003, 09:59 AM
Yeah, trailer. My bad.

Anyway, about the paintball gear, how would the other poeple (generally) react?

A. "Hey, that's Leon! With paintball stuff!"


B. "Hey! That's a Leon cosplayer! With a bad costume!"

04-20-2003, 10:13 AM
Naaa, they wont notice little stuff like that. I walked around with Welding goggles and PVC piping (glued onto it) on my head claiming they were Ecto-Goggles and people thought they were real, lol.

04-21-2003, 01:14 PM
hm, well, no one will say it's a bad costume to your face at least. :D seriously tho, i don't know what the paint ball gear looks like, so i can't really say. post some pics, and if you want, i'll as the peeps at REFan what they think, how it can be improved (if it can, etc)

The Pistol (http://www.pbreview.com/pics/1035063622.jpg)

This exact same gun, only black. Of course, I'll remove the hopper (the black thing on top)

"Fanny Pack" (http://www.pbreview.com/pics/1407.jpg)

The Brass Eagle ball hauler. Capable of carrying up to 200 .68 caliber paintballs. The pistol uses the smaller, .40 caliber balls. That's a lot of shots for a pistol. Hm... :devil:

The holster. (http://www.cops911.com/images/10029.jpg)

Though the XJ40 is a bit smaller than most pistols, I think it'll fit fine.

There you have it. Maybe they wont think using paintball stuff would be that bad, since I'm going with a theme. Anyone who thinks that it sucks anyway shall feel the Wrath of the Paint.

WOW *_* he is so awesome that leon wow wowowow okies im calm lol.

04-21-2003, 05:39 PM

You gotta have the Desert Eagle. It just wouldn't seem right without it.

04-21-2003, 05:48 PM
Darn skippy.

04-21-2003, 08:28 PM
another good place to get cheap holsters that might be a little more authentic are any army/navy stores near you...I got a beautiful leg holster from one, although some air soft realtors sell some pretty authentic looking equipment

"Fits all pistol Airsoft Guns"

According to that, a DE could fit into it. And it looks very similar to Leon's holster.

I'd definitely go with the holster gunplay posted. Thge paintball one looks... I dunno. Wrong. The corners poke out and the material makes it look home made.
