Crafting Costume for PAX East
Just thought I'd share, I'm throwing together a Jacket costume for PAX East. Figured it'd be easy enough to do on short notice. Also figured it'd be a good tutorial for anyone else wanting to do a Jacket outfit:

Here's the jacket I bought for Jacket, http://www.aliexpress.com/item/Free-Shipping-2012-Auntumn-Hot-Sale-G-Letter-Varsity-Jacket-Long-Sleeve-Mandarine-Baseball-Outwear-Coat/609789295.html

I opted to go with the recognizable Richard mask as well, which was purchased here: http://www.amazon.com/Chicken-Supreme-Halloween-Costume-Accessory/dp/B001CKRXXO/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_nC?ie=UTF8&colid=1LTV3817EX97Z&coliid=I1UG8I1NVFFDIR as opposed to any masks not featured in the primary artwork.

I'll be sure to share photos when it all arrives. Wonder if I have any old white sneakers... if not I'll just opt for the ones I'm currently wearing. If I wasn't flying I planned on buying a fake rubber machete or butcher knife or butcher cleaver.

How about giving your girl friend a Don Juan mask, and find a friend dress like those russian in game and put on Rasmus mask!!

Man, that jacket was WAY too tight on me. That's what I get for ordering from China. :-/

Nice. But the mask should be of a rooster, not a chicken xD

That looks sweet as hell so far - good luck on getting a weapon!

I can't stop laughing at this comment.

I may be able to get my sister who lives in Boston too hook me up with a weapon, otherwise I'll be going "Barefisted" style I guess.

Nice costume btw. I'm doing a hotline miami costume in July for a con I'm going to. I'm going based off the Hotline Miami artwork but the only problem I'm having is I can't decide whether to go with a bat weapon or the fire axe. I found this site that has them both, made from soft foam and looks super real but I can't decide. Any opinions?

I'd go with the Bat. Nice call on the foam though. Unfortunately I'm flying to PAX so I'm pretty boned on weaponry.

I'd go with a cardboard tube myself. :)

haha, now that's a great idea for PAX.

Wow nice cosplay! I'm planning on doing something similar for PAX Australia in July :D Thanks a bunch for the tip! Also, what size jacket did you get? I'll probably get XL and Red to be safe but if you got XL and it was tight, I might need to lose weight or find another source :P

It was XL. I weigh about 125 and I'm 5'11. It was less about weight and more about length.
