Nice! I think this one will be a lot of fun. I can't wait to see how you tackle the helmet and visor.

If this is anything like your previous cosplays then im sure its going to be great. Good luck @Yashia.

One question, which loadout? 

Advice, check out nerf guns/foam dart blasters for the guns. Relatively cheap and pretty easy to work with and paint.

Yeah, this is going to be epic.

The helmet will probably be the hardest part of the build.

I'm particularly interested in seeing how you fashion the armoured sections of this cosplay. I love following your logs on this forum!

The first progress for my Specialist Sergeant is the holster. It's very rare that I buy a finished product and simply adjust it...

With my experience of airsoft, I would suggest you to think about something to stick the holster to your trousers because it can fall due to the weight of the pistol.

Some wide velcro (hook and loop fastener) on this inside of the holster and the pant leg should do the trick. Even with a plastic gun, the leg straps aren't enough to hold it up. :thumb-up:

Yashia, one thing I'm curious about is that the concept art has the neck area completely uncovered, whilst the actual miniature has it covered (With part of the body suit presumably). Which one are you going to go with?

I guess the strap she cut was the trick, connecting the holster to the belt to avoid it slipping down.

Yes. But even a replica of a Glock 17, which is one of the lightest you can find among pistols replicas, the belt and the trousers began to slip down with it after few hours of game.

Buying an time to adjust does save you from having to actually design and craft a holster yourself. I don't see anything wrong with choosing that route for a part of your cosplay!

@Ayadan & @Noctan: Don't worry, working in velcro is already part of my plan ;)

@Counting_Kittens: I'll stick closely to the Concept :) Hope that won't look strange in person :blush:

@Astraeos: Yeah. I usually like to answer the question "Did you do everything by yourself?" with a clear yes, but the holster and the bag I found were better than anything I could do by myself and saved me a damn lot of time I can now spent on other parts.

Previous concepts had neck (mostly?) covered:

Infinity-Knight-of-the-Holy-Sepulcre.jpgMale order vs specialist difference seems to be the shoulder pad, backpack and "cape", so I would extrapolate the other way for female.

Belt not tight enough? Too low to start with? ;)

Anywhow, armies are not doing huge webbing for fun. The idea is to transfer the load to the right places (belt would be pelvis, it's not a fashion complement to wear low). You may prefer such solutions, so it becomes belt and suspenders, or pistol in chest directly.

Nicely done, though nobody wants a pistol with that much bluing worn off, it would let the pistol start to rust (and re-painting or re-bluing is relatively cheap).  That's 20+years of service, in and out of the holster constantly level of wear.

I was experimenting with weathering. And it was fun. So... :S

Ultimately, Rule of Cool decides. This looks cool, therefore it goes :D

^^^Very true.   Also, Section 9, you assume the pistol is metal and subject to rust.  Who knows what materials will be used in future firearms.  My guess, composites.  Besides, it is fitting for a Pan-O unit to have a poorly maintained fire-arm.  WIP 12 or 13 and all that XD  If it fails, they just toss it and get a new shiny from the armory.

I like the weathered look here.

The collar/neckline thing.  The concept art makes it look as if the garment can be zipped up to create the full collar as seen in the other concept art shown.

Yeah, WIP12 and get a new one from supply.  Plus rule of cool.

 

And rule of cool always wins, Yashia.
