Alternate Adventure Time Finn Cosplay

How does this sound for a more post-apocalyptic cosplay of Finn? I'll list it now

Hat:
http://www.amazon.com/Rothco-1991-An...ds=riot+helmet
I was going to take this helmet and spray-paint it white then cut some styrofoam balls in half and glue them to the side to represent the ears of his hat. On the visor I would put "WHAT TIME IS IT?" on it in transparent paint along with a white bandana underneath to cover my face.

Chest:
http://www.amazon.com/Modern-Warrior...=tactical+vest
Then I would take this vest, spray-paint it blue and wear a blue hoodie under it (gotta make sure to match the colors of it though)

Backpack:
http://www.amazon.com/JanSport-Class...green+backpack
This as his backpack, I would remove the logo and beat it up a little bit to give it that rough look.

For the sword I was going to buy a hard rubber one usually used for LARPing maybe write somewhere on the hilt, 'Remember Jake'. The pants would be some blue cargos torn in some areas with one kneepad. Not sure what else I would give to this post-apocalyptic Finn as a weapon but I think a sword is just fine.

So what's feedback on this idea?

I hope this is still a thing? Sounds awesome.

You could also maybe buy a dog tag (like for dogs, or soldier ones, whichever makes more sense to you in this world) that say Jake, and either attach to the sword or wear it around your neck.

The op hasnt upated. But just in case he comes back.
For the vest and hoodie I think fabric paint should work well. Test it on a patch to test the eveness of the paint.
Search for weathering threads for that rough look.
Are you going for the original sword look. Look for blood and dirt tutorials for that really rough look.

Guys I'm still doing the idea, in fact I'm close to being finished by now. Let me show you some WIP shots.

Helmet has the words painted on. I managed to secure a german riot helmet I got to modifying, I'm going to tear off the sticker and attach a set of ears to it either tomorrow or thursday.

This is WIP of a revolver I'm painting to look like Finn's Demon sword, I'm going to paint the cross symbol on the side of it to help it better look like it.

I also have a prop machete on the way. Currently not pictured but acquired is my green trailmaker bag (dirtying it up for the cosplay), blue tactical vest and my blue hoodie. I'm going to wear this to NYCC 2014 if anyone is interested in seeing how it turns out.

Sorry I didn't update in so long guys, I got distracted by other cons and stuff. Totally forgot about this thread lol.
