Chris Redfield

S.T.A.R.S

Resident Evil 5

Last Updated: 11-28-2010


After completing the standard version of Chris's S.T.A.R.S costume I decided to have a go at the minigun as it won my DA poll as to what project I should try next. A picture of it complete and details of what went into building it can be found here - http://leadmill.deviantart.com/art/RE5-Minigun-Backpack-165473856!



First wore it at London Expo, was great fun and very popular. I loved taking part in the masquerade with the Zombie Killing skit! Thank you to everyone who came up and said hello, I really appreciate it!

However some drawbacks also became apparent. The gun itself is very heavy and requires a lot of strength to carry it for long periods, the backpack weight is distributed through the harness system so is less of a problem. Also the ammo belts had a weakness where they met the minigun/box so that will have to be removed and a new system installed for when I next wear it. As it got quite draining and painful to wear towards the end of the day I will make sure to keep painkillers to hand and stay hydrated.

Not sure where to go next with this, maybe I i'll try Chris's standard RE:5 loadout and wear this! :)
