I've been enlisting the help of my ever wonderful fiance in the making of my second cosplay costume. It's loosely based off steampunk and western. Think Joss Whedon's Firefly. Most of the costume is salvaged clothing. The belt is made from scratch. I have my own Eagle Scout to help me with the leather works. It's a 3 belt system that has my gun harness and a few military surplus pouches.
This is still a WIP. I plan on attaching my knife, a few more leather accessories (I want to get my hands on a steel flask and wrap it in leather), and my bullet works. Doubtful this costume will be completed by Kawa but I will wear it. I'll have it finished for sure for Anime STL.
