EDIT: AHHHHH!  My bandwidth has exceeded on photobucket!!! Please be patient while I try and find somewhere else to put these photos!

OKAY!, I guess that'll work for now. >_<

After months of changing her mind, my daughter finally decided what she wanted to be for Halloween.

A Medic, from the game Team Fortress 2.


We also have a one year old little girl, and she couldn't be left out, so we decided that she could be the Heavy.


If you are completely lost, visit here http://www.teamfortress.com/ and then go buy the game and experience some of the best online gaming I have ever played. ^__^

Both girls had a really fun time and I had a GREAT time making both of these costumes. Everything was altered even a little bit(dying the pants a darker grey and painting the boots and shirts) But my piece de resistance would have to be my eldest's Medi-Gun.




If you have any questions about the costumes, I would be happy to assist you!



Oh and here's a video of my daughter before the costume was completed.

Thanks!

Thank you all so much! I have a feeling there aren't too many big gamers on here, but I'm glad that those who know it appreciate it ^_^. Thank you again!

Words can't express how awesome these costumes are, and how awesome your daughter is for wanting to be a medic! I might be a little biased since I play medic, lol. Plus kudos on the medic/heavy combo, lots of people think medic/demo is the way to go, but it's medic/heavy all the way, then again I might be a little biased since my husband is a super awesome heavy  Grin
Great costumes, love the medigun beam with the crosses, and the stuffed Sasha (or is it a stuffed Natasha?)

Hahah thanks so much! I personally prefer a Medic/Soldier most of the time but Medic/Heavy is traditionally the way to go I think. (I play medic as well) And she is a Sasha, and my 4 year old loved it more that the baby did I think, she's slept with it every night since halloween! hah

My husband was looking over my shoulder as I looked at your pictures and said, "Is she a medic from Team Fortress 2?? Does that mean her sister is a Heavy?? She's charging her up!! That's awesome!"

So, I know nothing about the game, but I thought you'd like to know that the costumes were *very* recognizable. (And adorable. I know that much.)

I went to post this on a TF2 gaming forum I frequent only to find someone already posted the video!  Your costumes are definitely a hit.

This is by far the greatest kid costume EVAH!!!  I love it so much.  I'm biased of course because I Love TF2 so much but also because Medics are full of W1N!  You even made the healing stream and a baby Heavy.  Seriously adorable!!!  Thank you so much for sharing.  This completely made my day  Cheesy  (I AM ZE UBAH MAGE!!!)

I just had to register to tell you that you win parents of the year as far as I am concerned. Plus, if you didn't know by now, you were featured on Kotaku. http://kotaku.com/5402008/cute-alert-team-fortress-2-babies

I have a request. Please please please, round up all the neighbor hood kids and make costumes for a full set of TF2 characters. Then make a video of 'em playing tag or something. Oh, it may just cause a rift in the cute-gaming continuum.

Great work! Im really impressed with the attention to detail. Thanks for making my night.

P.S. That heavy is a spy!

Haha I would LOVE to be able to do that! but ONE not many kids in my neighborhood and TWO: TIMEEEE!! These costumes drove me almost to the brink of insanity. But I am going to go and try to major in costume design so who knows, gimme seven more kids and we'll see how it works out...

Wait...

I have 5 nieces/nephews... I smell something cooking...
