Sherry Birkin RE6 China Outfit Gun Holster Assistance

Yep I'm gonna cosplay Sherry Birkin from RE6, in her China outfit, I'd love to make her Edonia outfit sometime but not until I get better at sewing and learn how to "puff up" jackets like that.
Anyways I've got everything squared away except for her gun holster, (the one on the left in the image XP) http://i87.photobucket.com/albums/k1...pse0d6f58c.jpg the fact that her gun has a scope on it (and under mounted laser sight) http://i87.photobucket.com/albums/k1...ps65af91d2.jpg makes it hard to find a holster that'll fit all that well, plus it has to be a left handed (on the left hip) gun holster.

As for her shoulder holster I'm pretty much just gonna make it unless you guys have any ideas for ones to buy/modify. XP http://i87.photobucket.com/albums/k1...ps95cd398b.jpg

Thanks for your time. =3 I've got WIP pics up of my Sherry cosplay so far, there's still a lot that I need to do for it and I'm steadily getting it all done, no rush. ^^ http://www.cosplay.com/costume/434190/

I thought about doing that but it needs to come up over the sight and laser pointer, I was thinking just cutting out the side to fit it and then taking extra plastic or leather (whichever the holster is made of) and that come over the tops of the cut outs.

You might have to take some liberties with Sherry's holster, if you want to holster the gun. There's no enclosed holster that I've ever seen that will fit a gun with both a laser and a mounted scope.

What you would probably need for her gun is something like this:

That's a high speed competition shooter's holster. It will let the gun fit with the laser and the scope still mounted.

If you want to be accurate with her holster, you will probably have to heavily modify an existing one, or just tuck your gun in your belt when you don't want to carry it.

Raven, Birkin's Triple Shot appears to be an unholy amalgam of a Beretta M93R, Springfield XD and the Sig P220 SL Sport. Honestly, unless you can get someone to cast the slide of a P220, with the hammer, rear, trigger and foregrip of the 3R with the frame of an XD, just stick with your standard cheapo airsoft gun. I usually don't tell people to buy cheapo airsoft, but with Resident Evil 6, most of the firearms are all two or three weapons combined. Take the "Bear Commander" for example. Some argue that it's based on the FN FAL paratrooper variant, but if one looks closely, the weapon is chambered in 5.56, while the FAL is chambered in 7.62, and certain parts of it look closer to what one would imagine a Chinese knockoff of an H&K G36 to look like.

So, yeah... best bet is to get a Glock 17 or Beretta M9 holster, leave the holster empty and grab yourself one of those cheap Remington 870 airsofts with the weaver rails on top for a holo sight.

Thanks for the input Maniac, and yeah I just used my Beretta airsoft gun, its broken and can't fire anyways so why not. XD I did end up buying a Beretta holster and it fits the gun rather well it just needs minor alterations to fit the scope and laser sight. No prob though. ^^ And yeah they did kinda throw guns together in 6. XD
