army of two day cosplay help
Me and my friend want to do a army of two cosplay and we unsure of what we need. If anyone knows where to get the equipment from please tell me. also were on a tight budget.

Unfortunatly the image you posted is broken. Do you want to do The Army of Two - 40th Day outfits or regular? I see you put Day in the title and also if your on a tight budget then the 40th day ones will potentially be cheaper but in all honesty millitary cosplay and tight budgets don't usually go together well

This is the artwork I'm basing this info on. For this cosplay airsoft shops and ebay will be your friend. I often use this site:
http://www.ebairsoft.com/

I can go into the clothing their wearing but I'm pretty sure you can find the tshirts and trousers from the stuff they sell in primark

Masks:
With the masks to keep the cost down I would recommend getting one of these masks as the base and then battle damaging/painting it to your own preferance.

Vest:
For the one in the foreground I would be tempted by this one:
http://www.ebairsoft.com/fsbe-molle-assault-tactical-fighting-load-vest-p-161.html It will need some modding buy adding some webbing and hardware to the shoulders but this can be done quite cheaply.

The one in background appears to be wearing something like this:

again would need to modify with some black webbing to make it exact.

They seem to have an assortment of molle pouches which vary in colour. When searching for a vest opt for one which comes with pouches as you can mix them up between yourself and your friend or try to look for bulk pouch auctions on ebay. they do come up and if your not looking for anything specific they can be good
(here's an example: http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/BULK-BUY-Comlete-Set-of-THIRTEEN-Desert-Osprey-Molle-Webbing-Pouches-NEW-/390485203103?pt=UK_Collectables_Militaria_LE&hash=item5aeabb589f )

Gloves:
Typing tactical gloves into ebay will give lots of hits. try and opt for something with moulded knuckles or fingers like this: http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Breathable-Half-finger-Airsoft-Tactical-Carbon-Knuckle-Motorcycle-Cycling-Gloves-/140767171077?pt=AU_Cycling_Clothing&hash=item20c6609205

This is just a starting point as I'm not sure which version you wanna do. Feel free to PM with an image or post it here and I will try and find more accurate examples of the kit you want. Also I didn't check to see if the links were the cheapest it was just to give you examples of the kit they use.

Hope it helps good luck

I can't help but here's a forum friendly version of the image and this is a link to the massive image above.

thanks and its 40th day and thats the pic Kata-san =)

Thank Kata-San for the image. Now I can see the picture obviously some of the kit I mentioned isn't relevant and I've also seen that you've uploaded a picture of your vest which is looking good. So my question is - is there a specific piece of kit your looking for or are looking to upgrade kit that you have? Or was the question more where do I get their clothes. Sorry the post is just a bit confusing to me and I want to help answer the question more appropiatly

Not familiar with the subject but looking at it, depending on where your based, army and navy stores would probably have a lot of webbing etc.

obviously some shops can be expensive but thats more if you're looking for more collectible stuff...for example, vietnam stuff is very expensive now whereas it used to be dirt cheap.

but alot of what you want is fairly modern and i know alot of shops that would have similar stuff to the image posted. namely feltons in preston (massive and very reasonable) and 'mashed' in afflecks palace...where i used to work while i was at uni (but afflecks can be abit expensive)

as previously posted ebay could really be your friend here!

Im looking for everything they wear.

I have for Rios - trousers, molle vest and mask. Its the other stuff he wears i need eg boots,patches and pouches.

salem - everything but jeans my friend has that lol.

Thanks for the help

and loramarsden i ve tried ebay, its where i got the molle vest from and the only reasonable priced army stuff that sells in shops is a airsofting shop plus i live in london.
but thanks for the tips .
