I researched the costume, and decided the best way to make it would be to bring the design with me, and hit up a Military Surplus store. Thankfully the guy who runs it was very down to earth with me, and helped me find what I wanted. At first I thought it would cost a LOT. But It only turned out to be 95 dollars. Which is pretty good, considering.
The mask is a ski mask, with black swimsuit fabric (My fav type) over the chin, cheek, and nose. Shirt is a military sweater, warm, but keeps me reletivly cool in the summer. Pants vary between black formal pants, and a beltless type that have stripes down them, similer to the comics. The glove are currently just stage cloth gloves, though I hope to switch to heavier gloves soon. The boots are combat boots, very durable, and give me some extra height. Good grip too. Goggles are the oldest aviator goggles I could find, though when worn over the mask, tend to fog up a little bit.
In the first few months, I had the original style down, the Noir series was still pretty new. I have the coat from the comics. Worked great too, since the first con I wore it to was at UCONN, in CT, and the temperatures were about 22 degrees, so aside from my gloves, I was warmer than your average cosplayer. Of course that changed when I got inside and it was pumping out 70 degree air, whew!
Fixed the mask to make it correct with the comics. Looks pretty awesome in my opinion. Also finished the vest. While not the same one as he wears in Shattered Dimensions or the comic, it was as close as I could get from what I could find.
