Underworld Death Dealer

After watching Underworld and Evolution i've decided I want to try and make male Death Dealer costume, and no not skin tight latex :P but more like what Kahn, Rigel and the Vampire hit squad were wearing when the stormed the lycan lair, the leather jacket won't be a problem because being a goth I have one just like it and it looks like the weapons are a mixture of Glocks and G36's, as my computer is rubbish at taking screen caps has anyone got any good reference images of the Death Dealers and an idea of what else they are wearing, any help is much appreciated!

Heres a link to a prop site that sold one of the leather jackets:

http://www.propstore.com/list/cat_id...b/itm/movs/882

There are very detailed pix of the construction and embroidery designs and also a couple movie stills

Here's the jacket and the pants, but the pictures are dark so I supposed you could lighten them in photoshop to see the details better:

http://www.premiereprops.com/product...roducts_id/782

There's also a site called yourprops.com and they have TONS of Underworld memorabilia, but the site is acting up at the moment so I don't have any links...try there and search "underworld" and you'll get better pictures of the jacket/pants and also the holster rig

hope this helps ^^

Hmmm looks like I need some leather trousers, i'm half tempted to buy the movie prop but I think its a wee bit much and I won't have that kind of cash for at least a few months! I best stick to replicas for now

Well, even replicas can get expensive *-* haha... have you considered either making it yourself or getting it commissioned? Also try ebay... if you haven't thought of that yet xD

I had a poke around on eBay but all I found was movie props at $1000 a pop so I might have to alter some things myself!

I love those prop sites, although I think there way to expensive for the stuff they sell..
Your better off having it made for you or finding someone to make it for you. The long trench coat is not to hard to find so you may be able to find someone to do the embroidary.

If I go on this work trip to America i'll be earning £2.5k a month so i'm tempted to stick it out and get a proper movie costume, but the cosplayer in my wants to try and make it myself and spend the money on other things! Because making it is half the fun! Rar decisions decisions!
If I make it myself I want to go for the first film look rather than evolution as the designs were simpler and slightly more generic, i've found a source for the holster but need to find a source for non tight leather trousers as theres no way i'm wearing skin tight ones :P

The cool think about the death dealers is that their costumes didnt stand out that much, all you remember is black with some cool tactical gear. You can do pretty much anything and look good.

I've watched Underworld about 20 times and couldn't tell ya exactly what they look like.

I don't think it's worth it to spend that much money on a movie prop, but that's just my opinion

As for "non skin tight trousers" good luck xD but maybe you could get them 1 or 2 sizes larger, so they're not tight... then have them altered, so they're not falling off

You have a very good point, DYI is half the fun, hmm maybe I just need a belt for the trousers I have a few Gothic ones that might suffice.
