    Mar 21, 2010, 2:35 AM - Splinter Cell Convictions Sam Fisher Costume - Civilian style outfit #1

    Hey guys, I know I'm new but I'd like to start my first post by saying that I'm trying to put together this outfit quickly and affordably for the release of the game on the 13th. I'm eager to get it done as I'm an employee of Gamestop and I'd like to be ready for the event. I was hoping you guys might be able to share some knowledge as to what clothing, weapons, gear I need to make this an accurate reproduction.

    Here's what I've gleaned so far (pics only):

    Since its a video game, and created entirely from scratch, most of the stuff doesn't exist IRL.

    That backpack reminds me of a bicycle bag though. Its like a messenger bag and a backpack mated together. So that's where I would look for that.

    The sweater looks like a wooly pully without the shoulder pads.

    You could also probably find green cargos like that at some sort of outdoors store (REI, Cabela's, Bass Pro, etc)

    I would figure the clothing bits to be found items, the shoes, the pants, mayyybe the shirt. The bag, I have no idea, and then the gun would be difficult since I have no idea what it actually is. Etc.

    Sam's pistol is an FN Five-seveN fitted with the OCP/ LAM unit. The bag is most certainly a custom. the screen/thingie on the shoulder strap might be made from an mp3 player/Ipod/Cellphone, I think.

    I guess I'll have to see if there's anyone here on the RPF that might be able to make the bag and doesn't mind my timeframe.

    What are the chances I can get a similar pistol?

    The Opsat (screen piece) I can make myself from a PDA with an image embedded.

    I'll bet the shirt and maybe even the pants either are or based on tacticle shirt and pants. There are sites that sell surplus of that stuff like thesportsmansguide.com or if you can find a military clothes supplier I'd check there for those.
    chances are you could get real life tacticle sweater and cargo pants and modify them or just use them as is.

    I'll go ahead and check out the sites you mentioned for the clothing bits. What would you say about the shoes? Are they track shoes...I can't tell.

    hmm...not quite the right color: http://www.sportsmansguide.com/net/c....aspx?a=641120

    but that also shows I was slightly off on the URL, there's no "the" in it.

    edit:
    although now that I look at the last two pics you have in your second post, I don't know that you'll be able to find any shoes like those. It appears they don't have any laces, I can't tell how they close up so...I don't even really have a suggestion. Maybe the low hikers are still the style to search for something close?

    I found close enough pants and shoes. I'll be making a cover for the shoes so they're more seamless and molding it and casting it in a flexible rubber.

    I found a watch that's good enough for now, plus I own it, which makes it free. The sweater is a work in progress though.

    Could potentially use this, would need to be modded - http://www.barkersonline.co.nz/Produ...ProductId=1398

    What do you guys think of this bag: http://shop.ubi.com/Prod_ExtDesc.asp...ogid=981&id=18
    I'm thinking of purchasing it, although..it does look undersized. I don't know. I could essentially mod it with parts.

    The PDA....Do you guys think an ipod touch with the right image (photoshopped) locked onto the screen would be good enough?

    Trying to figure out how I could possibly get the pistol....*scratches head*

    I can't tell how big the bag is, but it's probably closer than anything you'll find.
    I think this would make a better sweater: http://www.armysurplusworld.com/prod...roductID=32038

    More intel on the Five-seveN.
    Ubisoft's bag looks good enough, at least on your timetable.

    I've been able to get all the parts and a passable pistol that I'll be painting up OD green and black two tone for the look.

    I just am having the hardest time finding the sweater. Can anyone help me produce/find this sweater before the release on midnight the 12th?

    I read your post then looked through the pictures and I think you're right. I'll be doing it up in the tan/black two tone style. Thanks!

    The watch in the third pic looks like an OD 5.11 field ops watch.

    I think it's a mixture of a suunto x10 and the 5.11 field ops watch.

    I'm using a cheaper watch for now as I don't have the money to put towards the suunto.

    The sweater seems to be the biggest hurdle on this costume, it seems it makes or breaks the look. I haven't been able to find any of the "right" sweaters with the 1/4 neck zip, the mesh in the right areas, and the charcoal grey color with vertical ribbing.

    The backpack is a modified gearslinger. Similar to Maxpedition's....it is heavily modified however. I agree tht the Ubi one is abou as close as you'll get at short notice. It could easily be modified to be more authentic.

    This is what I have found for the sweater:



    sadly, its out of stock everywhere! Calvin Klein, model: MG39N76.

    EDIT: May buy a lighter colored one and dye it. stupid CK spelled out on the left shoulder though.

    Not a fan of the outlined box around the zipper but its a good budget item. Maybe Magnoli could step in here and give us a quote.
