Help with the Pyro from Team Fortress 2? And some help for Medic.
Not sure if I'm putting this in the right place, but anyway I'm planning on cosplaying Pyro from Team Fortress 2 and I'm having some difficulty with it.
I already have most of the stuff needed, gasmask, boots, gloves, strappy things. what I'm having trouble with is the suit, the small accessories attached to straps like the grenade thinks and air canister and props.
I have a pattern I can use for making the suit myself, but I'm not sure what fabric to use, the reference pictures I have it looks like a slightly shiny material, so should I use something shiny or just use normal cotton or something. Or should I just go the lazy route and buy coveralls?
I want to also make the flamethrower, but I'm not sure how to even start, the most complicated prop I've made was a scythe with little details on the blade. Are there any tururials I can use for this? Or should I just go with making the axe Pyro uses as a melee weapon? (I've also been considering the rainblower just for silliness' sake XD)
And on the subject of props, I've been tasked with making Medic's medigun for a friend. I don't know how to do it, but the asked me so nicely I feel really bad I might not be able to do it.
