Help With A Gaige (Borerlands 2) Cosplay!

Ok, so I'm thinking of making a Gaige (default appearance) cosplay. I need some help though figuring out some of the details though. Such as:

- Her belt
- Her robot arm (was thinking of using something like leg pads [for soccer and the like] painted silver)
- Her hair tie things (the ones that keep up her pigtails)
- The bracelet(s) she wears on her right arm
- Mods
- A weapon (was thinking maybe a replica of the Infinity pistol, since I use that a lot with her)

Also, I need some good refs of her!
"A philosopher will ask that if a tree were to fall in a forest, and no one is around to hear it, would it still make a sound. A smart person would ask why the presence of a person determines whether or not a tree makes a sound as it falls." - Soren Alenko

I love Gaige! I can't wait to DL and play as her
I only have a few loose recommendations and a lot of her is probably going to be trying things and seeing if they work multiple times. Damn that game and it's strange character designs at times. =___= Like Hammerlock how in the hell could you even make him accurate?


This ref looks pretty accurate to me but just keep looking around.
The ponytail things you could probably do with some fabric secured in the middle with.. duct tape even. Gaige would wear something like that lol
Her hand you're probably best off basing it off of armor with like a spandex glove base.

Hi there im doing a gaige cosplay as well ive had a few prototypes since November

For her belt, I would suggest getting a utility belt at a hard ware store that should be good and pretty accurate.

Her arm im still working at my first prototype sucked, then i tried making it out of foam and it worked pretty well after i painted it with silver rubb n buff but i feel like i still need to find a better material.

For her hair ties i held them up with regular hair ties and i actually but the pipe holders from home depo and put those on top works very well

basically i suggest going to a home depot and getting a lot of nuts and bults you could also make it out of foam and do a good paint job

if youd like to see how thoose turned out email me at duarte0brenda@gmail.com
and ill gladly sent you pictures of the specifics and how it worked for me
Cons I'm Attending:
Anime Los Angeles(2013)
AnimegaCon(2013) (maybe)
Anime Expo(2013)
Gaige - Borderlands 2
Mikasa - Shingeki No Kyojin
Kuroh - Project K
Magi- Morgiana
