Escape from New York

Last Updated: 09-22-2016

Escape from New york and Escape from LA are up there with some of my favorite movies. There's something about the Post-apocalyptic theme that I find interesting.

The costume is made up of an underarmor tanktop, Arctic camouflage pants, baseball umpire shin guards, combat boots,finger gloves and an eyepatch from a Halloween store. The eyepatch I had to cut a hole in and hotglue black mesh over it so I could see out of it.

The gun is a toy water Uzi that has 2 removeable magazines, which I duct taped together. The silencer is an industrial size paper towel roll (it's more thicker than household paper towel rolls) which I painted black. It's also fitted with 2 Walgreens medicine bottle caps that fit perfectly over the ends of the roll. I had to use a lighter to melt the plastic and fit it over the gun's barrel. Doing that gave it a perfect fit over the barrel. Adding the duct taped magazines and the silencer helped to size up the gun and make it more like a Mac. 11

Another gun I use for this costume is an airsoft Mp-5k that has a removeable silencer, tactical stock and scope that can be used as the Coreburner from the sequel "Escape from LA"
