I'll just leave this specifically and poorly censored picture with an obvious secret here then.
It may be at Anime Central, C2E2, and more!
Probably not Anime North unless I figure a way to bring it on the airplane safely and back again. Which means no, pretty much. Last year my sentry survived the trip there, but... well not so much the way back...
Hey, I remember you too! Loved your sentry last year and this dispenser's looking badass (if heavy, hope it has wheels).
It's too bad Piss and I probably don't have a way to transport our payload cart to ACen. Unless someone has a way to move a hugeass prop from out of state, hurr.
@ francis: Thanks! It was a close one, one of the guys actually asked me if i realized how scary it looked on the xray with the motor and wires. We laughed, but i got through both ways.
A big rocket launcher shaped collection of plastic pipe with no moving mechanical parts or rockets? you sir are a threat to national security.
@txen: thanks! Yes it has wheels, it will light up, and it even has a secret compartment for dispensing health (drinks) and ammo(snacks).
You could use a truck and drive the payload down if you are dedicated enough.
I was half thinking of just making a gunslinger and a combat mini(er) sentry for the travel up north if i have proper time and resources.
Woah man, that's just amazing, I whish I could go, but I went to America once just a few days ago and I'm still tired as hell for the trip, but woah, that'll epic in the expo!
Here in spain the expos are not really much, but I found a couple of scouts and a spycrab
Hey guys, quick question.
How do I make the Sniper's vest? I've looked it up and I have no clue where to start. Is there a similar vest that I can modify? If not, how can I sew my own?
Thanks in advance! :)
Looks like a vest you would take duck hunting to me. Something like this? http://infoark.org/InfoArk/Sustainability/Mother%20Earth%20News/80/MEN_CD/mendemo/dcd/083/083-182-01.htm
The problem with most vest patterns online is that none of them have that high collar the Sniper's has.
It's not exactly professional at all, but I took an old collared shirt that I didn't want anymore and cut it up/pinned it into a vest shape that fit my body correctly. I used that as a base and traced out pattern pieces onto paper. Then I transferred the pattern shapes onto some appropriately colored brown cloth, sewed the pieces together on a sewing machine, and voila.
I'm not sure if anyone's ever mentioned a standard way of making Sniper's darn vest.
looking at the link Schatzi gave, you could add a high collar to the vest, but the question that should be asked is how it will work out...
July 1st-4th at the LA Convention Center.
Last year's Valve gathering was MASSIVE and I'm looking forward to see if we can actually get an official count this year.
So, who's going and what plans do you have for AX?
This year I want to try for a BLU Heavy cosplay, but if I can't manage the funds I'll just stick with my BLU Soldier.
Red Spy here, it was nice to meet you
Another RED Spy? A shame we didn't get a chance to meet.
Another RED Spy reporting back! I had so much fun this year. Thank you guys for making it splendid. :)
I actually took only one photo at the shoot and that was of the Atlas and P-Body with their Chell. So I can't contribute this time around.
But I know a lot of people took a lot of photos so yea... where are they at you guys?
ALL RIGHT YOU LILLY-LIVERED WASTES OF CRAFT FOAM AND CARDBOARD! THERE IS A NEED FOR YOUR KIND FOR SOMETHING BESIDES CANNON FODDER FOR A CHANGE, SO FALL IN LINE AND SHOW ME YOUR WAR-FACE!
*cough* sorry, still in character
Anyway, I'm in need of some willing participants to take part in a masquerade skit scheduled for the September gathering of SacAnime starring characters from Team Fortress 2 as they prepare to infiltrate SacAnime. I've seen quite a few of us participating in hall cosplay already (I was the Heavy with "Sasha" and my brother was the Engie with the Dispenser suitcase) so I know the luv is there, I'm just searching for some folks who want the spotlight for a bit with us!
I have a script already and I'm in the process of putting together the prepared audio track (I might need some voice acting help as well if anyone's up for it) along with some props and some spare costume pieces if someone were to join us JUST for the sketch. We need a cast of 8 people total:
and 1 off-stage helper

Have a Pyro yet? Been cosplaying RED Pyro for a couple of years now and I'm willing if you need people still.
OKAY! long-overdue bump and progress update!
Here's where we stand right now:
The folks that got in touch with me from last time at SacAnime haven't gotten back to me to let me know what classes they want to be and since it's getting close to the wire, I think I'll have to open up the floor to everyone else as well. Just can't wait anymore, sorry peoples :/
SO! Me & My Bro are gonna cover Soldier and Heavy. Nosferatu, I'd love your help as our Pyro.
FEMSpy, I remember you and you were awesome, but the script has a joke centered around a crossdressing spy and he kinda needs to have a dangler for it to make sense. :(
Would you maybe like to act as our medic? I have a bunch of stuff I'd be happy to give ya, like a backpack & Coat. The coat is most likely a little big for ya, but we can fix it with cleverness and hot-glue.
Bottom line, what we still need:
-A Medic (equipment available)

We had a couple more awesome volunteers, so all we need now is a Spy and a Medic!
I'd like to reiterate that I have Medic stuff to wear if you want it, so if you wanna be in the masquerade but don't feel like dressing for the whole con, you're welcome to use it!
please please please post more of this.
I think she's a really good Spy and I really want to see more of her. Actually, more in general of anything.
Let's do this.
Here's my genderbent Blu Pyro
Back when I had long hair.
If I fix this up I'll probably wear it to a con, I just need a better balaclava. (And I suppose I'd have to ditch the hats)
FL Supercon, you saayy?
I'll be there Friday and Sunday, in my (failure of a) RED Scout cosplay. :l

MAD. SKILLS... ow caps.
I've been trying to put together a Engie cosplay for my local con, but have had a heck of a hard time finding overalls that a)are accurate and b)fit me.
But after about a week and a half of scouring all over my area, I've found two sets of overalls that both have different trade-offs.
One is accurate and cheap, but are really large on me, while the other isn't as accurate and much more expensive, but fit me properly.
Which one should I get? Any help would be great!
make them :V
I second this.
Accurate and cheap are pros that are too huge to pass up.
Okay! Thank you for the help!
Is anyone doing this? I'm considering it, but there seems to be relatively little buzz over it and I'm honestly not sure what to make of it. http://theavatoy.site.aplus.net/id7.html
It seems like it could be a lot of fun or really suck. Any thoughts?
Yeeeeah no, I'd rather not be stuck on a boat with a large con group.
The idea of going on a cruise with your cosplay buddies sounds fun, but, with everyone else included, it sounds like a pain.
Also it's expensive as all hell. I'd rather just go on a regular cruise with close friends.
Is anyone here able to tell me how to make a dispenser? I thought of several ideas, like using a backpack or a suitcase but I have no plan what actually WORKS. What did you use for your dispenser? Can anyone help out? Would be wonderful!
PROPORTION THINGS TO YOURSELF.
Don't just ask how big something is. If it comes up to Engie's waist, then measure to your waist. If it comes up to his chin, then measure to your chin.
If you use the proportions in the picture that was posted, it's going to look really fucking weird, because those don't even line up within the picture. There's no internal scale and the angle is weird as hell.
Hey Bunny its Ki, Smashes friend from AX last year. Im using hte gun i made for Smash and going as heavy this year, will i be seeing you?
Hey you! Yeah, I'll be going this year! You coming to the Meet right?
