I made my boyfriend a cobra commander costume:

Next to him is our friend Omar

The inspiration:


So I bought a blue track suit from academy and painted the cobra commander logo with acrylic paint, lol couldn't be bothered to buy fabric paint which would have been a lot better but oh well it turned out ok. I bought matching blue fabric to make the mask from walmart, thankfully when they remake the GI Joe movie they are redesigning his mask...

I also bought white chord from walmart to make the top look like a general suit more instead of a track suit

we had the bb guns, and a gun holster, I re purposed some camping gear for the straps on his legs and he also had black leather gloves which didnt make it into the picture, it was a very HOT Halloween costume so he took pieces off pretty quick!

My beau is a huge Cobra Commander fan. It's a little late for Halloween now, but dammit I WANT him to have a Cobra Commander costume. The tracksuit is a great idea. Maybe I can scrape up enough money to get him one for an anniversary gift. ^_^

I am not a packrat. I'm prepared. ^_^

The costume looks fancy and the gun looks even better! Wink
