RE4 Leon cosplay.

Okay, I've got it all planned out. I'm going to wear:

cobalt blue (maybe a bit darker) shirt
light colored jeans
bomber jacket with the fuzzy stuff on the inside
the AVAP003: 92F Light Wt. "Beretta" airsoft springer pistol
...and a holster for the gun that straps to the thigh.

Is there anything I'm missing? I've only seen a few screenshots.

hm, do you have the hair. you must get the hair right. um...does he wear boots? tes, he wears black boots, and black leather-looking gloves. and there's a side pack that he has on his right leg it looks like it's a gun holster. and there's a fanny pack too (heehee). here are some pics:

Actually, I got an idea. Im not sure if it would go well at the con, but itd save me some money. Rather than the airsoft pistol and holster, I'd get:

Splatmatic XJ40 (Black)
Paintball Pistol Holster
Strap Pack-Thingie (The "fanny pack", for holding viewloader tubes.)

I already have the strap pack-thingie, and was already going to get the XJ40 and holster. I thought it would be okay to wear that stuff instead of replicas. Y'know, kinda have a paintball theme going on.

Nope, I've seen the movie. It's just a plain bomber jacket.

Yeah, trailer. My bad.

Anyway, about the paintball gear, how would the other poeple (generally) react?

A. "Hey, that's Leon! With paintball stuff!"

Or...

B. "Hey! That's a Leon cosplayer! With a bad costume!"

Naaa, they wont notice little stuff like that. I walked around with Welding goggles and PVC piping (glued onto it) on my head claiming they were Ecto-Goggles and people thought they were real, lol.

hm, well, no one will say it's a bad costume to your face at least. seriously tho, i don't know what the paint ball gear looks like, so i can't really say. post some pics, and if you want, i'll as the peeps at REFan what they think, how it can be improved (if it can, etc)

The Pistol

This exact same gun, only black. Of course, I'll remove the hopper (the black thing on top)

"Fanny Pack"

The Brass Eagle ball hauler. Capable of carrying up to 200 .68 caliber paintballs. The pistol uses the smaller, .40 caliber balls. That's a lot of shots for a pistol. Hm...

The holster.

Though the XJ40 is a bit smaller than most pistols, I think it'll fit fine.


There you have it. Maybe they wont think using paintball stuff would be that bad, since I'm going with a theme. Anyone who thinks that it sucks anyway shall feel the Wrath of the Paint.
