This costume was made to mimic a video game, "Team Fortress" soldier. I only made the red jacket and the rest of the clothing, helmet, boots and helmet were purchased from a Army surplus store. The big gun was made by Nathan and Tim using PVC pipe, metal shop light shade, tape guns taken apart for handles and site, with all of it spray painted with a mat black paint. The red jacket was made from a twill fabric. I used snaps for the front closures and black buttons for the shoulder tabs.
