Captain 'Mal' Malcolm Reynolds - Firefly




Captain Mal from Firefly. He rocks!

Gonna be an interesting costume. Not usual for me to do a Western Costume but still pretty awesome!

Almost completed this costume. Its mainly just detail work now.

More Stuff!

The belt had to be tightened up a bit due to it being a bit too loose for the holster. It held but it meant that the holster didn't fit quite snugly on my hip as it should do, making quick drawing rather more difficult. The leg string helps but can only do so much.

Got me boots finally. Not the exact ones but they'll do. They need a bit of work but they're better than my old ones.

Got my Mal belt fully sorted now using two buckle pins rather than one. Oh and I got brand new braces which are nice and wide! :D

Really not updated...

Since my last entry I've received my gun, coat and holster.

I had to do some pretty mad leatherwork on the holster. Mainly punching holes and sorting out the leather strappings for his leg and keeping the thing strapped to my leg while I draw the pistol. It didn't really fit the holster I bought for it but the official one cost too much for such a little thing so I made it fit.

The coat is wonderful and smells like fresh leather as should be expected. The gun is the Serenity version but I don't think people will really notice.

Also now I've had to get new boots as the ones I have are too tight and really not the right colour. Will be picking those up soon. I've gone for rigger boots as they're generally hardwearing and comfy.

My old braces broke on me so I've gotten some cheap ones as a stop gap.

Also, I've had my hair cut!

I went nuts with money. I ordered three things!

Official Browncoat
Official Moses Brothers Self-Defense Engine Frontier Model B (His sidearm)

Total cost of this...

$700 (£470)

Picked me up a belt for use with Mal. Hope it works. Gonna work on getting a holster for him too. Might have to do some more leather work to get a good holster...
