Left 4 Dead costume and items Help

Hello, I'm new here, I've registered after when I created my first cosplay item, the l4d pain pills. Now, The label for my pain pills is very blurry and unsatisfying, I am just wondering if there is a site I could print out accurate L4D labels for Pills and Molotov, and paste them onto actual pill bottles and wine bottles.

I see the L4D wikipedia page has an image of both of them in real life, so it must be somewhere, hopefully public so it's shared.

Thanks in advance!



By the way, It would be brilliant if you can teach me how to make a first aid kit or maybe you can give me some tips for costume making. I already got a red tie and a collar shirt, anything else?

Also, where could I buy Airsoft UZI and the l4d auto shotgun?

Thanks again.

Well I am just trying to build a costume so I can wear it anytime I want.

I don't mind the guns, as long as they don't have the red pointy bits on nozzle.


The most important thing is the First Aid Kit and the Labels for Pills and Molotov.

Thanks!

Well you could either buy fake guns/get commissioned/or make them yourself. As far as the Aid Kit I don't know how it looks.

http://www.crunchgear.com/wp-content.../pillshere.jpg I want to say that is a Target Ibuprofen pill bottle. As for the first aid kit, have you looked for a similar one at a Army Surplus store?

Well, We don't have that kind of medicine here.

No, no Army Surplus store.

Thanks for your help anyways.

According to this, they are indeed based on real-world (TARGET brand) Ibuprofin

Right now I am working on the Scouts Force a Nature gun. I'm going as Coach w/ FaN at Anime Expo 2010. Kinda like an easter egg sorta thing.

Coach with FaN lines:
-Double barrel shotgun here!
-2 barrel shot gun here!
-Damn this things got some force in it.
-Oh shit, look at dat zombie fly!
-HAha I'm flying
-Check me out now.
-Anyone wanna see a Witch fly?
-Anyone wanna see a Hunter fly?
-Anyone wanna see...ect.
-I can see my house from here.
-Hey I didn't know zombies can fly.
-Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Nah it's flying zombie
-This thing sure packs a punch.
-When we get out of this, I'm gonna go hunting with this thing.
-This reminds me of team Fortress 2
LOl that's what I'ma be saying.

Most cons allow airsoft only if they have the orange tip as mandated by federal law. When is comes to airsoft, get the Cheapest M-16 A2 you can find. This is one of the cheapest I found: http://www.airsoftshogun.com/default.aspx?oid=2051

You can pick up a good airsoft 45 pistol at almost any Sporting goods store.

The health pack was hard. I found a red survival pack at my local Wal-Mart. Add a little white cross and bingo.
