Costume Information

Slightly different than first intended having decided to stick with a bit more of an iconic black balaclava, I also managed to forget the radio antenna :(

This was pretty un-practical to wear at a con:
* Had to keep pulling the ear defenders down to be able to hear people talk
* The cheap sunglasses would steam up really easily
* The balaclava probably muffled my voice too

At least the webbing had plenty of pockets to put things

Also big thanks too the Army of Two guy (Who I forgot to ask the name of) who let me borrow the much cooler looking version of the BB gun I had for a few photos

*phew* That's pretty frickin good man. And the level of detail is quite commendable. Heh, makes mine look rawly simple. I love how you got an Orange G36C. Are ya comin to Expo? Cause me and my Green G36C could partner up with ya ;)

Cheers for that! Think I was quite lucky that I either already had or could beg and borrow most of the right looking stuff. I wouldn't worry about yours looking different no one remembers exactly what it looks like without a photo and if anyone did call you on it you can say it's an original creation variant ;)
Yeah I'm going to be at May Expo…Must admit I hadn't planned on taking this one but come to think of it I don't have a second costume planned anyway, so might not be a bad idea!

Really? That's perfect!! Cause me and another Ghost might meet up. I was hoping to get a COD group together, but no one's biting T_T But if we can get some Ghosts together, that'd be pretty awesome ;) Ya wanna jump on the bandwagon?

Hey again, here's the plan; as i told the other guy, we'll meet on the steps outside the centre. Around 2:30pm. Is that cool with you?

Sorry for the long reply, Sounds like a plan...I'm probably getting a new phone soon so I'll PM you my number or email or something beforehand just in case.

Awww thanks! ^_^

It's actually a little scary how much kit I could choose from with all the stuff I've got or could mooch off friends (FYI - If you ever need to take over a small country or fight off a zombie outbreak you know who to call)
