I didn't see a thread dedicated to Hunk so I guess I'll start it. I already have a Hunk cosplay, so if anyone needs any tips or advice you can talk to me I think I am qualified to give advice on this particular character

*sigh* HUNK Junior, when are you gonna drop that PASGT helmet and get yourself a MICH? You also still need MP5 pouches on your vest. ;)

Love ya, buddy. But I gotta give you a hard time.

The below is from my DA - I wrote a HUNK how-to. Oh, also: INB4 some idiot comes in here and tells you "Dur, you gotta go see the 'official' RE Cosplay thread!"

I get questions about this costume pretty often. Okay - all the time. I've recently realized just how many times I've types the same how-to for a single person, time and time again. I have decided to post a how-to right here, for all to see. If anybody asks me how to make this costume again - I'm going to link them here.

To make HUNK's newer costume, which he wears in Resident Evil 4, The Umbrella Chronicles and The Darkside Chronicles, you will need the following:

* Black MICH Ballistic Helmet
* British Army Avon S10 Gas Mask
* Black Balaclava
* Black Flight Suit
* Black and Tan Custom Load-bearing Vest
* Black Triple MP5 Magazine Pouch [2]
* Black Radio Pouch
* Radio
* Black "Bizarro" Pouch
* Black Hatch "The Operator" Gloves (Full forearm length)
* Black Wristbands
* Black Elbow Pads
* Black Duty Belt
* Black Thigh Holster
* Black Utility Pouch
* Black Respirator Pouch/Butt Pack
* Black Admin Pouch
* Black Drop-leg Strap
* Black Utility Pouch w/ mini Side Pouches
* Black Knee Pads
* Black Duty Boots
* HUNK's Custom TMP

You will need to do some customization on this - namely the gas mask, the LBV (load-bearing vest) and the (pointless) drop-leg strap. You might also choose to do some customization on your gun to make it more accurate. There are also several notes you should be aware of. All of this I will cover below!


THE GAS MASK

Check eBay for surplus of these. They're fairly easy to find at a decent price. New ones aren't cheap, though. To get the red lenses for HUNK's new look, you have a few options. The quickest, cheapest and easiest way is to buy some red window film and attach it straight to the lenses. I did this for a long time until a friend pointed out that HUNK's lenses were actually flat and more pronounced than the ones on the mask I wore.

For a more accurate effect, you can buy some red polycarbonate or clear polycarbonate (again with red window film), and carefully pop out the rims of the gas mask lenses. When you do that, you'll be able to swap out the round, clear default lenses with your nice new flat red ones. However this takes patience and a steady hand, as they're in there pretty damn tight.

The last option, which is the most expensive but also pretty easy, is to buy "outserts", which are basically a second pair of lenses that attaches to the rim of your gas mask lenses via a rubber mount. These can sometimes be found on eBay (UK eBay is easier to locate them on) and they aren't cheap. In fact, they're usually more expensive than the mask itself! It's really easy to apply red window film to the outserts as they effortlessly pop in and out of the rubber mounts. This is what I have in my newer pictures. It looks good, and it's really easy to remove them if you want to see something in natural lighting without taking your entire mask off.

Also, HUNK has a VPU (voice projection unit) on the front (mouth) part of his gas mask. These are EXTREMELY hard to come by, but making a prop one isn't. Use your imagination.


THE LOAD-BEARING VEST

This thing will take the most amount of work, surprisingly. If you aren't anal about 100% accuracy, you can really just wear the black LBV and look fine. If you are anal (like me), you have your work cut out for you.

The LBV should come with 4 magazine pouches on the chest and two grenade pouches near the front belt loops. All of these will have to be CAREFULLY seam-ripped off. After you've done that, you will need to attach two triple MP5 magazine pouches to the chest. This can be tough, as the material is too thick for most sewing machines. You can handstitch them on if you want, but it's still tough. I sewed some nylon MOLLE webbing onto my vest (an example of MOLLE webbing is here: [link]) and that way I could easily slip the mag pouches on since they were MOLLE compatible. If you aren't sure about compatibility, check with the retailer you're buying the magazine pouches from.

Make sure that your MP5 magazine pouches have plastic buckles on the fronts!

On the back of the vest, HUNK wears a radio in a black nylon pouch, which is taped into place on the left shoulder of the vest. Look for a big black motorola style walkie with a 6 or 7 inch antenna, or a replica. On his right shoulder he wears what I call the "Bizarro Pouch" because it doesn't exist in real life. No matter what anybody tells you about this pouch - unless they tell you it doesn't exist - they're lying. It's not a hydration pack. It's not a shotgun scabbard. It's not a map pouch. It just doesn't exist. However, a black hydration pouch is what I use because it looks close enough. You can always try to make one yourself!

Finally, you will need to remove the shoulder pads and use fabric paint to paint the entire thing tan (except for the nylon webbing running up the center). Take your time with this - it's easy. And don't paint the bottoms. No one will see it, and it might rub off onto your flight suit. You don't want that. If you look hard enough and spend a bit more money, you may be able to find tan shoulder pads, and either paint or replace the center piece of nylon to make it black. It's up to you. I painted my black shoulder pads tan, as I didn't want to buy another piece of the costume just to do more modifying anyways.


THE CUSTOM TMP

As far as HUNK's weapon goes, you're kind of going to have to compromise or do some custom work. Even if you can afford an airsoft TMP (and they aren't cheap - DO NOT BUY THE SPRING POWERED CHEAP ONE, IT'S TINY, NO MATTER WHAT THE ADVERTISEMENT SAYS), the TMP will still need considerable amounts of customizing to make look like HUNK's. HUNK's TMP has a squared off front end, whereas the real TMP has a sloping downwards front end. You might not think much of that detail, but it makes quite a visible difference. Secondly HUNK's TMP is NOT BLACK. It is (unrealistically) gunmetal. This is easy enough to accomplish with a paint job.

A similar gun, the MP7, can be found cheaper than the TMP and will take more customization. You'll need to fill in holes, remove one part of the stock, and do a lot more to make it accurate.

HUNK's TMP has a high-power LAM (laser aiming module) on the right rail. The laser has a pressure switch attached to the front grip.

One last detail - HUNK's TMP has a vertical grip, not a slanted grip like the standard one on the TMP.

(Note that in Umbrella Chronicles, HUNK's gun is slightly different. The LAM is part of the vertical grip, and there is no stock for some reason.)


OTHER TIPS

For the balaclava, try to find one that comes down to your chest so you don't have trouble keeping it tucked in.

Do NOT wear BDU's. Wear a flight suit. Or I will snap your neck.

Your utility pouches can be pretty much any type of tactical pouch. The first, worn on the back-right of the belt, is a little larger than the wallet. The second looks almost like a bincoluar pouch, and has teeny side pouches on it. This one is barely visible in-game because you see HUNK from the waist up and behind 90% of the time, and it is worn on the left hip.

You can Jerry-rig the "leg strap" using duffel bag straps for a good and cheap effect.

The best elbow/knee pads are Alta brand. They looks just like the ones in-game. Note: six eyelets on the knee pads, not more, not less.

Wear "boot bands" to blouse the bottoms of the legs of your flight suit, don't tuck them into the boots. Boot bands look and feel much better. Also, wear black socks! Nobody wants white socks showing under black gear.

Last, but certainly not least, do NOT wear Umbrella patches and/or an Umbrella ID. HUNK is part of a covert unit. His uniform bears no insignia whatsoever. If you wear Umbrella patches on your assault gear... I have a special place in Hell for you.

Hey i finally got the mag pouches. Uhm do you know of a glue that i can glue the mag pouches onto the vest?

Captain Jack
09-05-2010, 02:19 AM
I wouldn't glue them on if I were you. The nylon will eventually slip out. If you have a sewing machine, sew some MOLLE webbing onto the vest.

http://www.onpoi.net/ah/pics/users/486_1110071254_17.jpg

It's just nylon webbing sewn in about 1" increments. Then you use those thick nylon straps with the snaps on the back of the pouches to secure the pouches to the webbing on the vest. Kind of hard to explain. If you can stand to wait, I can show you what I mean at Anime LA, or at Mikomi Core if you go to that one.

W4RH0US3
09-05-2010, 03:59 AM
Ahh ok no believe it or not I get it uhm now where do I get molle webbing and those nylon straps and which wristbands did you use for the gloves?

Ps are you getting the kMp9 for hunk or ?

Captain Jack
09-05-2010, 10:11 PM
Nylon webbing can be bought at Joann, or any fabric store for that matter. Even Walmart probably has it. That's all MOLLE webbing is: nylon webbing sewn in 1" increments. Maybe 1.5" would be better though so it's not so hard to work with.

I think the brand of wristbands I have are called McAllen? Or something like that. They sell them at most sporting goods stores.

And yeah, I plan on buying the MP9, but I want to get it with real world markings. I'm waiting for RedWolf Airsoft to have on in stock again, because the one Airsoft GI has says "Cal: 6mm" and has airsoft markings on it.

The model on RedWolf has real world markings ("Cal: 9x19" and whatnot.) It looks better.

Interesting, but Captain JACK now I must give you a hard time. The proper gas mask, and harder one to find is the british SF10.

Captain Jack
10-03-2010, 11:01 PM
The SF10 and the S10 look identical, save for the fact that you can put two filters on the SF10 - which would look wrong. Instead of a filter attachment on the right (like on the SF10), the S10 has a microphone attachment on the right.

Other than that, they look the same. Neither is more accurate than the other.

And technically, HUNK's gas mask doesn't exist. The closest thing is either the S10 or SF10.

W4RH0US3
10-04-2010, 01:27 AM
SO when are you planing on geting the MP9?

Killzer
10-04-2010, 08:49 PM
1 thing though you can actually have the 2nd filter on the sf10 close up with the attachment that was handed out when issued. The sf10 actually comes with flat lens while the s10 came with a bit more rounded lens, but you figured that out after a while. And you should think about getting Matilda

You mean the VP70

Captain Jack
10-05-2010, 08:07 PM
I hate the VP70. That gun is uglier than sin. HUNK had a Deagle in RE2 in addition to his VP70, so I stick with the Deagle.

Vernedead
10-06-2010, 06:02 PM
What's going on in this thread?



The SF10 is just a no frills version of the S10. It doesn't have a drinking tube. The "flat lenses" are actually flash outserts that fit over the actual lenses.

No, but srsly folks. Plain black IMI Desert Eagle. If you have to pick between an ugly gun and a silly gun, pick the one that puts bigger holes in things.

Still regardless the name he gives it is Matilda, but yea thats the VP70. And personally I love the VP70 especially if you have the stock for it. And as far as the lenses on the sf10 being just flash outserts do a little more research. They are just plain flash lenses, but you can buy the flash protective lenses still for the mask and replace them.

Captain Jack
10-07-2010, 01:05 AM
He meant the lenses on HUNK's mask, not the SF10, are flash outserts. That's why they appear to be pushed out more from the mask. HUNK wears custom red flash outserts. Still, you could go with the SF10, if you want to pay more money for a less useful mask.

Killzer
10-08-2010, 02:35 AM
Sorry, but it seems better to me, and you started commenting on another Hunk cosplayer outfit, so I decided I would to as well.

Okay, let us know when you make your Hunk costume. I really want to see it now.


@marshal: I think its because he has the Deagle, and doesn't want a USP. also Hunk uses it in RE2.

Captain Jack
10-08-2010, 08:21 PM
As a rule, I love HK guns. I love pretty much every HK gun - at least aesthetically - EXCEPT the VP70.

@Vernedead: If HUNK had a USP, I'd be all over it. That's another gun I like. But yeah, the reason I have the Deagle is because it was either that or the VP70, if going by what he has in RE2.

On that note, in "Resident Evil: The Mercenaries" (coming out for Nintendo 3DS) HUNK appears to use a SIG 556, a Beretta 92SF, and some kind of pump-action shotgun. I've planned on getting the 556 for some time anyways, and have the 92SF already.

Just some more stuff to add to the HUNK arsenal, I suppose. Keep in mind the weapons he's seen with in RETM might just be placeholders.

Well HUNK might not necessarily use a 556 to start he could have found it

I would just leave it black, but that's because I like to use my airsoft guns at the field, and gunmetal isn't tactical to me.

ManiacMarshall
10-09-2010, 10:04 AM
Does that new MP9 actually have a foregrip and side rail mounts, though? Looked to me thatthe buttstock was doing that whole "doubles as a foregrip for GANGSTAAAHH shooting" thing.

Did they just model the thing after the civilian model?

Captain Jack
10-09-2010, 02:18 PM
It does have a foregrip, and it's got one siderail on the right sight only:

http://www.redwolfairsoft.com/redwolf/airsoft/Gas_Pistols_SMGs_KSC_KSC_MP9_SMG.htm

I'll be adding one to the left side myself. The grip does fold in a way that lines up with the foregrip, but that does make sense as otherwise it'd kind of be awkward to hold if folded.

I'll also be putting rail covers on the top as HUNK doesn't have a tactical rail on the top of his gun, and hiding them is probably safer than trying to file them off.

When I get my MP9 should I paint it gun metal? or Black is fine?

That's up to you, really. The gun will look just fine with the costume in black, but technically in RE4 the gun was textured with a dark gunmetal. You can accomplish this by painting it gunmetal and then weathering it with some black shoe polish or even black paint used carefully.

Vernedead has a point about airsofting with it. You'd probably get chuckled at by fellow airsofters, at least until you explained to them that it's a replica from a game. At which point they'll either think it's cool, or they'll chuckle more. Keep in mind these are the same people who slap 8 magazines together on a G36 and call it a SAW, or play as a sniper because they want to get lots of kills. Airsofters can be a silly lot. If you don't care what they say, go for it.

But honestly, the gun looks good in black or in gunmetal. It just depends on what you want to do.

W4RH0US3
10-11-2010, 02:00 PM
Ok so now do you have a suggestion for another kind of boots, because I feel mine aren't like hunk's any more. Also do you know of the laser module that is on the right rail of hunk's gun?

Captain Jack
10-12-2010, 08:18 PM
Yeah; hybrid (leather and nylon) duty boots, just like these: http://www.galls.com/style.html?assort=general_catalog&cat=&style=FW041

Those are the ones I have, and I believe they're exactly what HUNK wears.

HUNK's TMP has this laser: http://www.airsoftpost.com/product_info.php?cPath=28_140&products_id=29245

But I'm sure you can find a cheaper version someplace. Try looking for battery box's for airsoft guns (they conceal an external airsoft battery, but look like laser units) as well.

W4RH0US3
10-13-2010, 02:52 PM
Ok that sounds good now do you have any recommendations on the pouches he wears?

W4RH0US3
10-13-2010, 02:54 PM
on his waist

Captain Jack
10-13-2010, 09:04 PM
I assume you mean the kind of square looking ones, and the one on the front of his left hip, yeah? The more square ones are pretty weird. I haven't seen anything quite like them in any tactical gear.

This would be close, but maybe a bit too big: http://www.airsoftpost.com/product_info.php?cPath=30_159&products_id=31540

This is about the right size, but doesn't look quite right (still an awesome pouch IMO): http://www.airsoftpost.com/product_info.php?cPath=30_159&products_id=30020

This might be really good, and useful: http://www.airsoftpost.com/product_info.php?cPath=30_159&products_id=30053

Obviously some model of respirator (gas mask) pouch or butt pack is worn on the center back of his belt. The items above would work for the pouches to the sides of his butt pack. Then there's the small pouch on the front left hip, which has mini side pouches.

I really can't find any tactical gear that looks quite right. Maybe look at some camera bags? if you find anything, lemme know. I still need that little sucker.

W4RH0US3
11-15-2010, 04:17 PM
Sigh, ok I am currently on an expedition to find a VPU compatible with the S10. I have been looking day and night for it and I contacted Avon and they said that they don't have any here because they stop making it so they said they will get back to me and they also said that maybe the FM12 vpu might be compatible with the S10. Would FM12 accessories like that work with the S10?

Captain Jack
11-29-2010, 09:43 PM
If Avon can't tell you, I definitely can't. I haven't got my hands on any FM12 accessories yet. I've looked everywhere too and can't find any S10 compatible VPUs these days. If you find any FM12 VPUs let me know. I'd be willing to give it a shot and let you know how it works out.

Vernedead

It looks like a fan render.

Captain Jack
01-01-2011, 09:35 PM
It's an official render from Resident Evil The Mercenaries 3D for Nintento 3DS.

Looks like a mag pouch to me. Or maybe it's just a dump pouch. 'Bout time they make it do something. I've checked all the other scans and images from the game and so far it looks like there are no additional changes to his costume.

EDIT: Other than the fact that they took off one of his thigh holster straps (probably used a different model as a base). Also, his weapons change with each render due to the player being able to choose weapons in the game, so don't get too hung up on specific weapons from RETM3D.

W4RH0US3
01-01-2011, 10:17 PM
Yeah but hey now he uses a USP so I think your happy he's no longer subject to a VP70 right?

Captain Jack

*Clears throat*

His weapons change with each render due to the player being able to choose weapons in the game, so don't get too hung up on specific weapons from RETM3D.

In short, he only uses a USP if you (the player) choose so. But yes. I hate the VP70.

Why do glocks suck?

Ok Captain I have decided to paint my custom tmp gunmetal. So how exactly did you paint your mp7 gunmetal and which gunmetal did you use?

I just went to Joann and got some gunmetal paint that they had there. Don't remember what brand, but I used a regular paintbrush to apply it. Make sure to shake up the paint really well first to mix it, or else it comes out pretty watery.

Why do glocks suck?

It's not so much that Glocks suck. Its just that their is nothing that stands out about them. They were designed for people who HAVE to shoot, not necessarily want to shoot.


The myth about the "glockenade" was started from pictures of glocks exploding from very high pressure loads (glock is rated +P by the way.) and sense no one mentioned the kaboom was caused by shooting overpowered handloaded ammo people started calling them grenades.

The truth is lots of guns kaboom, its usually the users fault though.


This is coming from a 1911 owner, I'm just paid to shoot glocks at work.



So this is somewhat on topic, I plan to turn my retired RE4 Hunk loadout into a skirmishable airsoft loadout. I have a KWA MP9, and I plan on getting some Thunder B grenades. My S10 is already modified to stop BBs up to 550 fps.

Admittedly, Glocks aren't bad guns... I just prefer steel frames and slides. Hurts worse when you throw it at people after you run out of bullets.

Like Verne said it isn't a BAD gun, it's just the user more than anything. Same thing with limp wristing a pistol. Not the weapon's fault... unless it's Hi-Point.

Back on subject, I'm still trying to find my Israeli mask so I can modify that thing. I know you all love the S10 so much, but I'm telling you, get an Israeli model, cut some holes in it to fit it with whatever canister you need and bingo. Smaller eyehole ports, longer snout, everything.

...Sub-2000, Verne. Fired one about two weeks ago. I kinda like it. They're dirt cheap. What say you?

Israili gas masks are on ebay and can be found at most army navy surplus stores. Speaking of an isreali mask I used to have one for Hunk when I was starting the costume. I picked that one because of the fact that I needed it soon and I couldn't afford to buy an S10 at the time.

ManiacMarshall
01-06-2011, 05:56 PM
I realize this. I own one. I just can't friggin' find it. I also own an S10, but I'm planning on mirroring those lenses one day fo Umbrella Sanitation.

God what I wouldn't give for an Umbrella Sanitation uniform... though I think JD was wearing a stab vest...

Captain Jack
01-06-2011, 08:55 PM
The guys over at ScifiHero did a lot of research on the Sanitation costumes, down to the wristwatches they wore. The stuff was simple, it's just it was weird. None of it really made sense. I think JD (or one of the others guys) actually wears one of those fat weightlifting belts made of leather. Weird shit.

The Israeli mask *can* work for HUNK but I think the eye holes are way too small. The perfect mask would be some weird hybrid between the S10 and the Israeli, really. Unless you just go by the RE2/Outbreak renders, where it's clearly a S10.

I still think the S10 is closer overall though. It's really up to personal preference. Hell, even the Canadian mask can be made to look not bad.

ManiacMarshall
01-07-2011, 12:20 PM
Yeah, I saw that. But you know me and... sewing... yeah, no.

When I find mine, what I'm doing is fitting the threaded tubes from a paint mask onto the sides, painted black of course, to give it that three way look, and retain the snout. In RE2, they're definitely using S10s. But dem vests.... what the hell kind of vests is dem?

Captain Jack
01-11-2011, 12:13 AM
The vest in RE2 is a custom bulletproof vest. There are a few models that look pretty similar, but nothing exactly like those.

Think this (w/o the mag pouches or neck guard): http://www.bulletproofvestshop.com/products/Tactical-Army-Rangers-Military-External-Bullet-Proof-Vest-Body-Armor.html

Or one of these (w/ wider shoulder straps): http://www.bulletproofbodyarmorhq.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1&products_id=24

There's nothing exact, but I'm sure that's the look they were going for. Considering the guys in RE2 weren't carrying spare mags or even sidearms, it's no wonder they got their asses kicked by G in stage 1.

Anyways, the RE2/Outbreak style vest is one I plan on adding to my portfolio. If you ever want one, lemme know.

Ok so now I have painted my mp9 gun metal, so now should i paint the magazine as well as the bolt that says 9mm on it to?

Captain Jack
02-28-2011, 04:01 PM
Yep. Just be advised you may need to touch up the paint on the mag as it will scrape off with repeated use. You'll also need to clean the inside of the grip as it will get little flakes of paint from the mag caught in it.

W4RH0US3

Providing the holes have same spacing and diameter there shouldn't be a problem. The 20mm stuff tends to be universal.

Captain Jack
07-12-2011, 10:54 PM
For HUNK's armor in RE2, it depends. If you want it to look exact, you go custom. This is the one I made:

http://www.cosblade.com/archives/202

If you want to go with something that looks similar but actually exists, there are a number of different bulletproof vests that look similar (with the should pads and adjustable sides).

In my opinion, Ranger body armor doesn't have the bulky shoulder look that HUNK's does. What I'm using for a film project is a SDU Level 4 Tactical Vest, but they're becoming really rare. The reason I use it is because it has a very similar look, but actually has mag. pouches on it (so it makes more sense).

Garfsan
07-15-2011, 09:38 PM
Right ok man thanks. I like the look of the link you gave me. Might go for that. And it looks like they can be removable too as Id like them without the pouches personally.

You would have been much better using the railed TP9 as a base for the project. Then all you would have needed to do was a close forgrip and cut down the flash hider to get it looking close.

Thanks man, I thought the same about the mask but i'm no expert at airbrushing, so I thought it safer to leave it white than attempt to "stain" it as it were.

This might sound weird, but with the mask. You can get washes for 40k models, that is what I think is the needed thing for the mask imo.

So far we have a couple of people interested in Vector, a Spectre, and Ada and a Leon. As people decide what they want to do I think numbers will grow.

Working on getting the vest and case sorted first for the ORC Hunk, so should be done by Kita.

Looking at the lastest video it looks like HUNK is using a G36K, which isn't a bad thing :)
Also what pistol is this?

It looks a bit like an M9, but the angel is bad.

Hey guys been a while since ive been on here. actually deployed right now so now HUNK improvements for me. I saw people were wondering what vest he uses in ORC... that resembles a US Army vest called an IOTV... to be honest i forget what it stands for. we have them in multicam but you should def. be able to get a mock off in black or something. as for the back on his back... u can find a pouch identical to that on High Ground Tacticals website. I bought one for an actual radio I use in country... once again in multicam. hope this helps. wish i could mess with my cosplay back home. hey CaptainJack... hows your movie coming along? i asked you about it at least 2 years ago and im still pretty interested in seeing how it came along.

Quick question if anyone can help with this part

Im making my VPU now for my gas mask. Using a small tin opened on both ends, then lid stuck back on the front and strainer stuck onto this. I could get this made pretty quickly but Im having a little trouble with this part. I want to cut the middle out of the lid so the strainer sits in that level with the lid instead of sticking above it. Right now it looks like this:

http://img850.imageshack.us/img850/6786/p1050151x.jpg

I dont want it to stick up like that. I need to cut around this part of the lid to allow the strainer to sit in:

http://img831.imageshack.us/img831/2709/p1050152x.png

Problem is Im not sure how to cut this part out. A hand saw obviously cant get into the middle and I dont really know what to use for this. Only thing I could think of was drilling a hole in the lid and sticking a jigsaw in it but I dont really want to have to do that. I havent used one before and Im not even sure it would work

Any suggestions would be appreciated. I hate working with metal..

Or his standard outfit for various games?

Kwonkicker, HUNK's outfit in ORC is a new take on his design. It's similar to his RE4/Umbrella Chronicles/Darkside Chronicles look, but with a slightly more modern twist. He's now up to four different in-game costumes:
1. Classic (RE2)
2. Classic w/ more details (RE Outbreak)
3. RE4/Umbrella Chronicles/Darkside Chronicles (I call this one "Mercenary" since it debuted in Mercenaries mode)
4. ORC

Hi guys, I'm new here. I saw the post here and I thought you may be my Holy Graal of salvation :D
I have a few questions:
1)Where can I buy red window film and what's the best way to attach them to the lenses?
2)I saw gas mask come in different sizes (1,2,3,...). How can I understand which size I can buy?
Sorry if I repeated a question you already answered, but I'm not good with english

Hey guys, I'm new as well.
NakedGiob, there should be a size conversion chart that you can use, my mask is a size 1 and it fits perfectly. I'm also curious on how to color the lenses; I sent an email to Avon asking about outserts, I have an FM12 mask; so I'm waiting on their reply. Concerning Hunk's rig from Operation Raccoon City (the style that I'm going to use) it almost at first looked like he had a pack radio until I saw that he just tapped his radio in place, something my old army sergeant would have beaten me for. My g/f was a marine (yes, yes; grunt and a marine; joking to ensue...) and we both looked at his rig and it looks almost like a camelback carrier. At least one of the bigger ones, and Captain Jack, your bizzarro pouch looks like one of the newer shotgun shell pouches made by molle; but my thinking is that's too weird to put it on your back, so it could be a tear-away medical pouch, also done by Molle.

Just my thoughts, I'll start trying to post some pics as I get my cosplay put together, we've got a comicplaooza here in May.

You can use red window film

Would I put the film on the outside of the lens or on the inside? I've never done something like this before so pardon me being a bit of a noob. The lenses have a bit of a rise near the center of the mask, I'll have to fiddle with it, thanks W4RH0US3!

Oh hey sorry lately I don't go on here that often but put the film on the outside

Thank you :D
I managed to find an S10 gas mask with red lenses on ebay, so I'm ok with that. Sadly, due to the lack of money I'll have to do lots of compromises, like using an MP5 instead of a tmp (something CptJack would kill me for), but I think I may do something acceptable. Anyways, I'm doing the ORC cosplay, so isn't the PASGT more appropriate than a MICH (http://oyster.ignimgs.com/mediawiki/apis.ign.com/resident-evil-operation-raccoon-city/thumb/2/23/Umbrella-hunk.jpg/318px-Umbrella-hunk.jpg)?

That's what I'm basing mine on, I'll be using an MP5 as well; I'm trying to find all the molle gear that appears on his vest

I've been looking around online and finding different pouches; one site I use is Rap4, it's a paintball equipment site, but it has decently priced pouches. Redwolf Airsoft is another good one that Captain Jack suggested, and believe it or not, Amazon has some equipment that's easy on the budget.

I'm a noob too, but I've been stocking up on my HUNK cosplay since Nov '12. I just need the triple mp5 mag pouches, the utility belt pouches, and his Hatch Operator gloves.

My model has been a mix of Mercenaries/ORC/Custom HUNK, which includes (hopefully) the Hidden blade from Mercenaries and (now) Raid Mode in RE: Revelations. I tried to do the ORC but his back and his vest is quite complicated from his past costume.
