How could I go about buying this guy's clothes? (ignore the armor, I can make that myself).

What kind of fabric is that? And what type of gloves are those? I have zero military knowledge so I don't know if it's based on something real or completely made up. Getting a similar looking one with the appropriate base colour would be enough. I would sew the stripes later.

>> No.10333296

OP here. The gloves look like leather shooting gloves. The uniform looks like it was based on Crye Precision's combat uniforms (integrated kneepads) in addition to being a nonstandard "Wolf Gray" color scheme. Crye doesn't make uniforms in that color, but you might be able to find a knockoff in that color variant

Okay from bottom to top.
Boots are either Jungle boots or Black Paratrooper boots.
Knee pads are definitely the old version Blackhawk knee pads.
I think the holster is a black Safariland 6005 with the hood removed.
Just standard old school BDU pants in OD Green.
>Web belt
Outer web belt looks like the USMC variant of an Alice belt.
The gloves are Rothco padded finger less gloves I think.

The items that I don't know are the vest and under vest. The over vest is some sort tac-vest inspired by whatever the USMC Special Reaction Team wears.
Undervest is some sort of OD soft armor.

Depends on the chronological and cultural theme of what you're going for. Every decade is different when it comes to gear for every country. For instance, in the US, Individual kit didn't change much from WWI to Vietnam in terms of design, mostly just materials used. But from Late NAM to the 1990s, there was tons of R&D dedicated to improving an infantryman's and special forces type gear.

Last year I put together an XOF kit for fun and man..
I'm pretty green in cosplaying so I don't know the avg money sink into your average costume but it got pretty steep imo(into $1600+) If you're serious about getting the look _just right_ its gonna be a bit of a task.
I'm much more /k/ than /cgl/ so I got pretty anal about the thing being a good compromise of period accurate kit and look-a-likes of Shinkawa's made up fuckery.

Just the sheer asspain of finding very specific milsurp from 40 years ago was a daunting task. That 9mm stick tac-vest for example was a very specific webbing produced for US Spec Ops in the late fucking 70's. It went over a Kevlar vest/trauma pad and finding one that's in one piece is impossible.
Then you have the fun of buying contemporary low profile kevlar and trauma pads which are a hundred and change.
CVC helmets are thankfully pretty easy to scoop up on ebay for less than 120$ but the old models with the metal mic are a bit rare. (idk what kind of radio the mic cord plugs into and it varies by production date so just tuck it into your vest and hope nobody notices that you're nearly deaf with those big earmuffs on.)
The balaclava, patches, gloves, boots, flight suit, radio, throat mic, medical pouch, shovel sheath, holster, belt, and horse-riding goggles are ez picking on Amazon or your local Police Supply/Milsurp Depot's website.

If you were really stupid like me, you wanted to go the full 9 yards and have the cool getup from the hospital escape.
B r u h
Buying secondhand CBRN is always fun.
Especially when you're looking for those big cone visor masks that will take a STANAG 40mm thread SCBA or 40mm adapter for a SCBA system of choice. Very cheap...
Best bet is to keep your eyes peeled for Police and VFD Trade-Ins if you're not afraid of boogers and excellent savings. The tank carrier is pretty standard and you can find old beat up "two-points" for pretty cheap on ebay every once in a while.

You can buy a CWU/-27P flightsuit and use fabric softener/dryer sheets to remove as much of the flame retardant coating as possible them use rit dyemore in graphite color to make the flight suit the right color. Buy tan so you start lighter, the green ones are darker than the XOF grey suits.

Shoulder pauldron is extremely similar to a CIRAS deltoid protector.

I don't know of any source on the puttees, in English, but I don't read moon runes so I can't say for sure they don't exist.
But as far as I can tell, British WW1 puttees are the same design, but not the same color, whilst the ANZAC puttees from the same era seem closer to the proper color, but are buttoned instead of tied. It up to you to decide which to settle for, unless you find a Japanese source or a reproduction outfit that makes the proper ones.

The only serious disrespect comes from "Stolen Valor" aka pretending to be military. This is more an issue with re-enactors wearing medals (which is only okay *if* portraying the actual soldier that earned them).

The military guys will ferret out the poseurs in very short order.

You can do it but it but I believe you need a bartack sewing machine because of how tough the fabric is. I know at the very least MOLLE is bartacked, but I believe the bags themselves are as well.

Uniform History is pretty good as far as learning about the history of uniforms themselves. Oxide has done some good videos on Russian gear and plans to do more about stuff like XOF cosplay, Terek out of Chechnya, Ukraine, etc.

99% of people who complain about stolen valor when people aren't actively claiming service never did anything during their military career and feel insecure, thus their opinion discarded.

For actual load bearing? Probably not going to be easy. They're expensive because you've got to be able to trust your life to them. If it's just for looks? Should be easy, but probably won't look authentic unless you buy strong enough materials, which will be hard to work with.

desu as long as you do it in the right place (a convention), do justice to the character (actually putting in effort for uniform details, wig, etc.) and source for the character (maybe carry a physical copy or a link to the material) I don't think anyone would get upset unless they're specifically looking to get upset in the first place.

You're either new, willfully ignorant, or being disingenuous. I'm saying it's heading in that direction right now, that the hobby is being associated with alt righters. Look at the explosion of tacticool fashion pop-up shops selling low quality goods, emblazoned with increasingly violent alt-right memes. Look at the members of the communities (discord, telegram, facebook pages, and other chat groups) associated with those shops, invariably a heavy alt-right presence. Anyone with a brain who legitimately enjoyed the old objects for what they are and who cares about legitimate historical preservation and knowledge has left years ago. It's only a matter of time until one of those spergs loses control trying to reenact his revisionist memes and permanently sears military cosplay = far right Nazism into the public consciousness.


>> No.10383462 [DELETED] 

ngl, between that post and >>10383437 I'm seeing some serious panic attacking over nothing. The FBI also considers ANTIFA a terrorist threat, do you avoid music and other things you like simply because they associate with the anti-fascist movement? I can tell you now that I don't live a single moment in fear of my life because of someone's political ideologies regardless of how radical they are. Being pushed out of a scene you like because of people's political opinions (something that shouldn't be in the scene in the first place) you should just start your own subsection.

For what it's worth, I don't think anyone who actively goes to conventions is looking to have an alt right con bash, and chances are if they didn't it wouldn't go well considering the number of staff and police officers that go to every event to keep the place levelheaded.

Lmao that's literally a reference to the fact that Zimbabwean brush stroke has brown print over green print whereas Rhodesian brush stroke has green print over brown print. How often do you stretch, because most people would've pulled a muscle on that reach.

I find this laugable as someone who attends reenacting events and other milcos type events where there are literally gay orgies among the WWII german factions. There are entire Facebook groups that are private and called Nazis on the outside where every single member of the page votes left. Ricochet isn't a news site, it's trash, and people who cite that are just fear mongering.

>> No.10383465 [DELETED] 

Of course I'm concerned, along with nearly everyone else those Nazis have forced out due to how this could effect our public reputations and livelihoods.

So why not simply state the fact as opposed to making the rhyme? He was clearly pandering to a certain audience. Good luck with getting/keeping a job, or staying in school when there's articles with your name and "racist" attached to it all over the internet. But of course, I'm sure those rightwingers would love to cover for that seeing how they treat others in their own circle who have had similar things happen...oh wait.
Methinks you're one of those alt-righters trying to gaslight people with legitimate concerns.

>> No.10383468 [DELETED] 

Ok, so once again start your own community subsection that doesn't allow for political discourse within the hobby, as any hobby should be? Maybe the problem is articles like the one linked where someone's political opinions make them subject to being raided and killed by a police officer in a no knock raid because of what they do off the clock?

I've almost died over my hobbies multiple times before, twice by the federal government and many other times due to reckless behavior on my part or the part of those around me, but at the end of the day everything you do in life is dangerous, and chances are dressing up in military costume for a convention and the government making the assumption that you are a member of a neo nazi movement then raiding your house and shoving a flashbang down your throat is probably nowhere near the most dangerous thing you do.

>> No.10383469 [DELETED] 

Probably because he's a content creator and making a rhyme is more entertaining than stating a fact. People don't tune into short youtube videos on a subject they want to learn to be bored to death. If they wanted to that, they'd read source material themselves.

The red flag laws are here right now and will very likely stay. You have no control over that fact, like you have no control over whether or not a bear mauls you, period. This is not up for debate.
I'm advising people to do things to not fucking die and not ruin their lives for no reason, such as not participate in the current scene. Like it or not, I'm pretty sure the militaria scene has never been that big, and given the current circumstances the only apolitical ones left are who you would call "boomers", who are rapidly dying off. Meanwhile, their younger replacements are nothing more than ideological band merch hoarders. I'm perfectly fine with mil cosplay, so long as it's respectful and apolitical, but the current scene can't seem to do any of that. The best thing to do right now if you don't share those same beliefs is to not participate. The moment one of them fucks up, which is an inevitability at this point, is the moment a lot of innocent people in this harmless hobby get fucked. Don't let that be you.

>government making the assumption that you are a member of a neo nazi movement then raiding your house and shoving a flashbang down your throat
Not how it works. More like your coworkers, classmates, or neighbors catch wind of this, use this as evidence of your nazism (in good faith or not, it doesn't matter), then gets the SWAT team to shove the flashbang up your rectum. This, by the way, is 100% preventable if you don't go advertising the fact you're into these things. Why the fuck would you help other people kill you?

> almost died over my hobbies multiple times before, twice by the federal government
This is preventable, by not being around retards and edgelords such as the kind currently occupying the mil cosplay hobby.

I unno, I've never seemed to have an issue finding apolitical militaria scenes or even leftest ones. Hell, even the milsurp general thread on /k/ has a prominent transsexual member which clearly shows a level of tolerance.

>Not how it works.
I'm willing to bet I'm significantly more intimately familiar with how both "this" and red flag laws work. I've known multiple people who have been (and beaten) red flag laws. I myself as I have stated have had two prior run ins with federal agencies who believed I was an extremist terrorist for making an anti-Trump post.

The people you claim have been pushed out of the community due not wanting to keep things apolitical.

The zoomer reenactors are edgy, but they’re certainly not alt right and they definitely have more spirit, fervor for accuracy, and are in better physical condition than the last generation.

You either carve out a section of a scene for yourself or you quit and have nobody but yourself to blame.

If they aren't "alt right" and their politics totally aren't molded by the content producers, then why are they showing up to political rallies endorsed by that sector, open carrying firearms? Sounds to me like something only a believer would do. Denying the obvious won't make the problem go away.

Before you tell me how it's just coincidentally a guy in a hawaiian shirt with a privacy protecting mask, let me remind you that the hawaiian shirt + tactical gear motif features heavily in the boogaloo fantasy and that the skull mask is heavily associated with violent extremists like atomwaffen, the base, and other "siege" cults.

Which is totally why so many supposed military collectors and reenactors are active on those subcultures' social media communities, why they post their memes in comments, and why they own their merch.
Also, you're implying that all reenactors are "authentic". Some put a lot more effort into it than others, and in general those are the older and apolitical sets that are losing ground. The edgy zoomers you seem to tolerate for some reason trashing the place only want to go as far as to create some aesthetic, not even to actually learn about the past.

>> No.10383845 [DELETED] 

Do you know what confirmation bias is? It should be pretty obvious that not everyone who owns guns and shitty patches supports a shitty company’s shitty political views. Just because they go to a Trump rally or pro gun rally also doesn’t make them alt right, there are tons of people on both sides of the spectrum that have shown up to rallies with guns and stupid patches. If you’re just looking for a reason not to participate in the hobby, why are you here? I feel like 99% of people on 4chan are opinionated enough to make their own decision whether or not they want to hang with a group or if they should start their own or just drop out of the hobby.

For what it’s worth, I’ve been stalked by a gay Atomwaffen fanboy who’s been seen at those rallies. He’s not even remotely a neo nazi terrorist, just a creepy weirdo I don’t want to be around because he wrote a fanfic about wanting me to fuck him.

Old dudes do NOT put anywhere near as much effort in as younger kids. There are entire Facebook groups dedicated to tearing apart boomers for ruining reenacting. Look up farb fest on Facebook.

>Who becomes the archetype the public thinks of when someone says "reenactor"?
I've lived my whole life not giving a damn of what the public thinks or would label me as. I'm not going to start caring now.

It's no different than business. Do you have to agree with everything your client believes in to do business with them? No. And anytime you go to a social gathering, do you have to agree with everything everyone else believes in? If you're not insecure and looking for a herd to disappear into, again, the answer is no.

I have many acquaintances, some solid friends and I don't see eye to eye with most of them on points. But if someone is upset by someone I hang out with I'll point out that they are a sheep and they think like a sheep, the world is not a safe place for sheep. They should go back to their fenced in communities and discord servers.

As you say, critical thinking.

>> No.10383890 [DELETED] 


You'll definitely care a bunch when you get socially ostracized, lose professional opportunities and perhaps what you worked your whole life for, maybe even get a SWAT team to red flag raid you one day, all because some normies stereotyped you as a potential terrorist. Sure, it's wrong, like rape and murder, but who the fuck are you going to complain you? And what good is that going to do? Nothing is going to un-rape and un-murder you, so why not avoid it in the first place? I don't make the rules, I just tell you how it is.
Believing you exist in a vacuum and that your actions have no consequences is peak autism. As they say, we live in a society. From my own life experience, intentionally courting preventable harm doesn't prove you're a macho manly alpha male, it just shows you're a fucking idiot.

Oh, I know what you were implying, your analogy is really a narrow point of view.
Not all reenactors are the same. And at least +10,000 reenactors that I meet with don't screech alt-right memes in the gathering. The media press we've had over the past years has been very positive. I think you follow social media too much.

Some real circular logic there, they've always been shitty, this isn't new. Don't try and say reenactors 20 years ago predicted the rise of the alt right and decided to put no effort into their impressions lmao.

How have you gotten through life to this point, are you like scared that one day you're going to trip on a crack in the sidewalk and fall over and die? That's the level of shit you're worrying about. I've never once been socially ostracized for calling people out for being politically vocal in our shared spaces.

Does anything people do make sense? No, because normies who are into Hawaiian shirts are fucking stupid. Hawaiian shirts didn't pop up because of boog memes, they popped up because of GarandThumb, which is why so many normies buy them. People buy pepe patches and Doomer patches because they're your average 4Chan user, not necessarily because they're alt right (most people I know on that spectrum thing Doomer shit is cringe actually).

He's not even a tough guy, he's just not so incredibly concerned about an Applebees job finding out that people in his hobby are racist and they'll fire him for being within a 1000ft radius of them. How many furries are incredibly successful and never get shit for being complete weirdos?

Your entire logic is circular as a reason for why you specifically don't go to reenacting events that doesn't apply to anyone else. It's fine if you don't want to go, just don't participate in threads revolving around it if your entire contribution is going to be "don't go to events because I don't go".

I'm not really trying to convince you to go, I'm just saying your reasons for not going are stupid. I've got significantly more to lose than you more than likely (fortune 50 management job, youngest promotion into the specific management position I occupy, promote above peers year after year, etc.) and have STILL managed to get in trouble with the government for issues involving firearms, some bullshit lies forwarded about my political beliefs, and so on and so forth and yet never once has it become an issue that has harmed me in my life.

>Hiding your power level, toxic subcultures, etc.
lol, same thing I said to the other person: keep thinking as long as you want, you're not very good at it. Don't participate if you have nothing to add.

I've actually got a full set of the Crye tiger stripe combat uniform from Roman Kurmaz on facebook. Its very good quality and exactly what I wanted but it was like $300 total shipped to the US. He also custom makes everything so if you need small maybe talk to him.

Last time I ordered from a facebook replica seller they used fake printed fabric with colors that were way off instead of authentic multicam, so I'm a bit weary of buying custom stuff

I'm looking to buy blueberry camo fabric. Prefer cotton/canvas. Need like 6 yards.

Actual mil-fag here, modern (as in 100% current) uniform regulations are publically published on the internet for anyone to see. The US military has everything in english published pretty much as they change it

USAF: AFI 36-2903
US Army: AR670-1
US Navy: NAVPERS 15665I
US Marines: MCO 1020.34(Letter)

There are a few rules for civilians wearing the uniform though
>Don't do anything or act in a way that would disrespect the uniform or the US Military
This will get you arrested and charged cause its literally a crime in the US
>Don't fuck up the uniform
If you do, stolen valor fags will rightfully harass you over it
>Always wear a hat outdoors, never wear a hat indoors
You'll look like a retard if you do
>Never say or pretend like you're actually in the military
Always tell people you're just cosplaying to like "honor our troops" or something. Especially if the people talking to you look like they can bench more than 200 pounds

Basically, just don't be a retard

Oh anon, what have you done.

In other news, I hate raidmodding shirts.

>> No.10397053

Remember to always keep your hands in your pockets and wear shades, so that you can flex on actual milfags.

>> No.10397408

Custom pockets? Most raid mod BDUs I've seen just lifted the waist pockets

wear a baseball cap and grow a beard too for maximum flex

Just sewing velcro on, then i'm putting them on the sleeves.

Here's a sewing pattern for that

Yeah, no, you can go fuck youself with fake statistics like that.

Part of wearing a current uniform is that it reflects on the service itself. People pretending to be soldiers/sailors/etc. undermines the basic ethics and integrity of what they claim to represent. The public isn't smart enough on the whole to realize it, and members of the public will invariably heap praise on liars and then blame the service as a whole foe liars getting away with it, rather than the stolen valor asshole, when the latter is unmasked. It doesn't matter if all service members did was guard a random train crossing in Montana, they're still right to be calling out the medal-festooned liar as the liar undermines what little they and their fellow vets have been able to work towards.

Military lolita is creating old fashion officer looks, its not so much about tactical modern wear. I love the aesthetic of it

>> No.10403681

Looks nice. Yeah I don't see why that wouldn't fit this thread.

>> No.10403780

I should add to this (not him) propel basically only ever care about stolen valor in dress uniforms. Whatever tactical gear you’re probably looking at won’t offend anyone

ALSO, friendly reminder to fill your mag pouches with something mag sized so that you don’t get that “super skinny looking cosplayer” look

I know it's been done to death, but I want my first cosplay to be a Ranger Vet from fallout NV.
However, I want to make a functional helmet/mask that doesn't need to look exactly like the one in game. I've currently got a similar looking surplus helmet on the way and I'm looking at voice amplifiers and any sort of mini air conditioner that I can add to the side of the helmet (like where the flashlight is, which can also be added).
Any advise for this sort of thing? also what do cosplayers do for hearing? should I bother looking into some sort of mic system so I can hear people clearly around me? I can possibly jury rig any electronic object to have on/off switches to a wrist band depending on the attachments I get and how they are laid out internally.

You can get cheap amplified earpro, like howard leights.
