Costume Information

Cost : None
Time Taken : Half an hour

Something simple hopefully for my first cosplay! I plan to do the main character of Fallout 3, The Lone Wanderer. The outfit is going to be heavily inspired from the concept art, especially the pip-boy so it won't look exactly like what you might see in the game. I also plan to deface a rucksack so I can carry all my things, (Wallet, phone etc) but make it look like part of the costume. I also plan to give my hair that retro/50's -ish vibe.

Lastly I plan to walk around all day with a sign on a post, "HAVE YOU SEEN MY FATHER?"

The suit itself I plan to make from scratch unless I can find a boiler suit in the shops that would be easily torn up and resewn in places. I plan to have the 101 on the back but scruff away at it with sandpaper for that worn look.

The pipboy is probably going to be made from a mixture of craft foam and leather. I'm not too sure how I'm going to make that yet but fingers are crossed I'll think of something a little bit different to make it stand out. I plan to have a slot behind the screen to fit my ipod into and then maybe get some screen shots of the pip boy screen and display those. I'm not sure yet. It would also give me a backlight for the pipboy screen without having to play with LEDs or anything.
