View Full Version : TF2 Sniper Cosplay Help

04-25-2011, 11:00 AM
Hello everyone,

This is my first time cosplaying and i need some experts help.

I am planning on cosplaying as the Sniper from Team Fortress 2 and require help on making the jacket (http://wiki.teamfortress.com/wiki/File:Sniper.png) and the huntsman (http://wiki.teamfortress.com/wiki/Huntsman).

For the jacket, is there any specific type of jacket i should look for? and for huntsman, what materials do i need to make it myself?

thank you!

Sniper's "jacket", I've found, is most similar to a shooting vest.
The example here gives the basic shape, minus the high collar, and colors, but the wrong color scheme. --> http://www.gandermountain.com/modperl/product/details.cgi?pdesc=Filson_Mens_Mesh_Shooting_Vest&i=420791&r=view&aID=501C4&cvsfa=2586&cvsfe=2&cvsfhu=343230373931&cID=GSHOP_420791
I would recommend having your own vest custom made to save on expenses and to have it fit you perfectly.
As for the Huntsman, it's a hardwood recurve bow (the TF2 wiki says), which you could buy from anywhere between $200 and $800. Or you could make one yourself to give it that extreme curve. Not sure on what materials to use, though. Asking around to other Snipers that have the Huntsman already would get you some fast answers.
