|Haha this was such a last minute decision and was thrown together days before expo XD I think my brother decided last minute that he wanted to go with us on one of the days and he wanted to cosplay with us. He was enjoying Team Fortress 2 at the time and so was my sister, so we all decided to get some TF2 cosplays to go together. For some insane reason they decided that they wanted to be BLU Scout and Sniper but I made the wise decision to represent the best team and went with a RED Engineer :P|
The entire cosplay was made out of scrap material we had lying around and I don't think we actually had to buy anything for any of the three cosplays that we were making. The hard hat was one that my little brother had lying around in his toy box so I salvaged it for the day. Zoe had bought some red goggles a long time ago from Cyber Dog so instead of shelling out for black ones I just went with them.
The overalls were made from a blue suede fabric that Crazedteensie had in her scrap fabric and I was amazed there was enough to make these out of :P The glove was one which was originally intended to be used for a Speed Racer cosplay, so I nicked one out of the cosplay draw and covered it in duct tape for the design. I needed something that wasn't going to be permanent. The kneepads were just a hash job of some cardboard covered in yellow lycra, with some elastic stapled to them lmfao. Talk about a ghetto job but it was the best we could do at the time and I loved them XD
The boots were the same ones I used for my S.T.A.R.S. Jill cosplay. The wrench and tool belt were my brothers :)
I would really love to redo this one day, but only as a group I think. I definitely want to get some black overalls for one thing, but hey, it may never happen. Who knows :P
