My bf and I are on an airsoft team (basically shooting people with plastic bb's, very similar to paintball except with more realistic weapons and scenarios), and our team hosts LARP-heavy games. We did a LARPsoft, if you will, based on the Fallout Universe (from the post-apocalyptic video games). I made our raider costumes, mostly out of upcycled clothing and materials. Here's what we had
My mask, made primarily of burlap:
Vest, found at Goodwill but torn to shreds, re-sewn, buttons changed, edges shredded, and a few shotgun shells blown through it (yes, really...)
One of my cuff/gauntlet thingies, made of faux leather, studs, and lots of hot glue
My boyfriend's shoulder armor, made of bike tires, screws, spikes, faux leather, and yes... lots of hot glue
Finished product all together
Action shot, minus the mask (I died trying to negotiate with bounty hunters... never a good idea)
I hope you like!
