I'm putting together a Medic costume for myself.

I won't look anything like the Medic from the game (aside from the clothes) though, since I'm not a German man, but an Asian girl. :P

I really want to do the soldier, just because I like the taunt where he smashes the shovel against his head haha

I'm also going to be the Medic. I'm nuts for the art direction in TF2 and started thinking of costumes for the spy, medic, or engineer. I settled on medic because I am crap at playing the other 2 classes in-game.

I'm going as the RED medic, so found some WWII repro breeches in the right color, some tall black jump boots, and a lab coat as the base outfit.

I'm a stickler for detail, so I'll probably make my own coat after Halloween, since the in-game model wears the more anachronistic "mad scientist" style coat with the side buttons on the chest, plus it's extra long and is cut away at the waist. Likewise, I'll probably go cheap for the patches on the shoulders the first time around.

The backpack will be fabricated from a box, a 2-liter bottle, and whatever I can find at the hardware store. I'll look for a frame, a belt, and the ammo bags at the army/navy surplus store to hook it all up. I may make a bonesaw, as I'm rather fond of tearing up spies with it, plus I enjoy the in-game taunt.

Shirt, tie, glasses, no problem. Red rubber gloves are proving to be a bit of a pain to find, though I have a backup on the internet if I can't find anything locally.

I am going to try to make a somewhat flashy medi-gun. At Target, I found a portable spotlight by Durabuilt that has a handle on top and a pistol grip on the bottom. With some pvc pipe, tubing, and a red filter over the lens, I'll be able to make it look relatively good, plus flash red! If I have time, I'll try to fabricate some sort of streamer (with a hook on the end for attaching to other people) for the health beam.

If I take it to MegaCon, I might bring along some of "+" speech bubbles for friends to pose with. Because, you know, I don't see them enough in-game.

LoL The Medic'll be the second TF2 costume I'll have done... only because I promised myself I'd go as the Demoman! Bottle and all, clamoring about being the only "Black Scottish Cyclops"; ranting about explosives.

The only obvious fear I have is local authorties mistaking the cosplay for something sinister. So I'll try to make the props look just as comical as in the game. *cough*

A friend of mine was inspired by my talk of a medic costume and he started looking up mechanics of how to build a sentry gun, since Engineer is his favorite class.

I sincerely hope he didn't mean an actual working sentry gun.

Actual rubber electrical gloves were far too expensive, so I ordered some cheaper vinyl ones online, but I don't know how good they'll look (I'll know when they arrive, I guess).

well it's still WIP but so far so good (I hope so...)
spy cosplay WIP

I couldn't find a latex balaclava and the leather gloves I have are to thick to I can't put the finger between the trigger and the trigger guard easily (I think I'll use a pair of woolen gloves)

any suggestion?

well, I'm planning at going to barcelona's con as red spy. This is the wip pic
and here are some props

I couldn't find a latex balaclava and the leather gloves I have are to thick to use the revolver so I supose I'll use black woolen gloves (like the balaclava)

It's more based on the beta spy than the final version spy since I wear an armlet and the suit of the beta is grey (mine is black but I didn't have other)

I love your Spy's equipment! May I recommend that you tuck the balaclava into your collar?

first: THX for the coment

I know ^^U I suppose I'll put the balaclava on first and then I'll put my shirt oncovering the bottom of the balaclava. I hope that day would be a cold day or I won't last 'till the end of the day

another thing: should I make the mouth hole of the balaclava bigger?

Nice spy gear! Are you going to make a paper mask of one of the enemy players?

Stopped by the hardware stores after work today and made a quick mockup of the medigun.

It's off-model (in-game looks like the business end of a firehose + a telephoto lense), but will look better once properly assembled and painted. The overall size is nearly perfect, though. Since the base is a working spotlight, I'll be able to shoot red beams of light at people!

Gonna start on the pack, soon...

I've been pondering on making a Pyro.

The mask would not be hard. Just get one of those Russian masks and paint it black somehow, and then try to modify it to accept the filters on the side.

Go for it; the pyro's a fun character.

There are some folks over here making most of the BLU team. Their pyro is actually making a working flame thrower! o.O

The thread is worth looking through for some ideas for the other classes, especially the great helmet find for the BLU soldier.
