|This is one of my favourite cosplays ever, and I am so happy I pulled it off. |
First off, I wasn't sure I was going to cosplay it, unless I could find a perfect jacket. I had to have it perfect, if not, no way was I going to pull off a half arsed Leon, since he is such a bad ass.
After looking for a month of charity shops, online shops, even full price retailers, I found the bomber jacket online. Got it, and it was perfect. There were some badges on the jacket that I picked off, but once they were removed, it was perfect.
Though, I got help from my good friends :D Rob, Drew and Kendall :D
After that, I decided to go all out with the tactical gear. Since Leon wore 5.11 tactical series top and pants, I had to get them from the real store, and not knock off ones. They set me back a lot.
Next was the gun holster and gloves, which were straight forward. The gun and knife were custom made for me by one of my friends and the shoes were my old IKEA work boots, which were strangely perfect. Haha.
