Halloween / Wizard World Austin Costume


This year for Halloween I’m going to try to make my costume. I have a pretty good idea for what I want to do.

I am a huge fan of WWI uniforms and of Larfleeze, Agent Orange in the DC Universe. Normally, these are not similar ideas to bring together for a costume…

…but, I do have a plan.

The character I’m designing is from a short story I wrote in a college Creative Writing course:

A Lieutenant Communication Officer for the Supreme Allied Command Republics of Texas and the Rio Grande.

And a Corporal Communications Mech for the  Supreme Allied Command Republic of Sadona

I will not comment on the quality of the short story, I did get an A, but there’s no accounting for taste…

What I need:

    Uniform:

    • Helmet / Orange Variant
    • Hat
    • Goggles
    • Shirt
    • Jacket / Orange Variant
    • Coat
    • Trousers
    • Boots
    • Utility Belt / Orange Variaint
    Rank insignia
    Orange Lantern Ring

Some of this I will buy premade, already have the helmet on order from an Army Surplus, and some of it I will make myself. Over the next 31 days I’m going to present my progress and hopefully be finished by Halloween.

Next Up: The Design…
