Looking to make a vampire costume based on the SS Soldiers that attack London in both the Hellsing Manga and Forthcoming OVA. Now I know this may not be many peoples area of expertise but its worth a try. I'm not very good at German kit and was wondering if someone could help identify what they are wearing. Heres what they looks like ->

So far I have a partial list
- M36 greatcoat
- Some kind of issue trousers
- Standard issue helmet
- SS flashes
- Jackboots
- MP40 Mag Pouches
- Some kind of Belt
- Backpack?
- Gas Mask Holder
If anyone can help i'd be very greatful!

dont forget the backpacks. i believe that you could probably find majority of what your looking for at a army-navy surplus. but try http://www.opsgear.com/ they specalize in milsim gear for paintball games and police traing. they have bdus and all, so you might find something.

opsgear is more modern stuff,

check places like TridentMilitary.com

they should have everything you need,

the troops in the pictures look like they're wearing standard issue gear, I'm no expert on German gear, so I can't ID too much either.

Many of them also carry old-fashioned grenades...you can see them in action in V4 or 5 when Alucard lands on the Eagle and has yet to encounter Rip. Also, later on into V8 or so, they all put on the very gas-masks that they have the holders for, so you could always include that too.

I have a friend who can make me the stick grenades as well as a Panzerfaust, I know of a source for an airosft MP40 too. If I can get it looking right this should look quite good. That Trident Military site was very useful thankyou! Keep the advice coming, i'm hopeless with WW2 stuff, as you can see from my gallery i'm better with modern stuff!

try some of the ARMY NAVY stores down around London. They tend to have look alike WWII german gear. The helmet is easy to get if you find some one who makes replicas.

If you can find a WWII reinactment group, they should be able to direct you to a supplier that could help.

yeah that would be a pretty good bet, it looks like basic German kit, but I only know US and Russian ww2, so I can't help that much, track down someone who knows their ww2 krauts and you should be all set.
