This year I've been searching through every mange/graphic novel and film to find the perfect costume for Halloween. After much debate I decided to go for a custom character pulling from my favorite influences. The concept of my character is a post WWII rogue sniper. I will be wearing a long wool trench coat, all black suit, boots, and skull makeup with colored contacts. My weapon will be an absurdly large sniper built from a modified Nerf blaster. I may add smaller weapons (pistols, grenades, etc..) and eventually he will have a name.

I will post progress here along with a full photo shoot of the finished piece for the RPF contest. Feedback/criticism will be greatly appreciated!

After the scope is complete and the barrel is properly mounted, I will disassemble the entire gun and begin painting. I will also be extending the bullet clip or buying one of the larger ones.

That barrel is rediculous. :lol

Cool mods so far. The contacts are neat. I'm curious as to how it all fits together.

I know! Hoping to grab one of those massive extended clips to really make this piece stand out. Anyone one know where to buy cheap mock bullets? I want to load the spare clips with a couple bullets each to carry with it.

metallic silver/grey base coat going on now in the studio. This will be covered up by a flat black coat and then sanded through for weathering.

Updates! Finally started the weathering after the paint fully cured for a couple days. So far just a little wet sanding on the edges to let the silver/grey show through. I'll have to touch up areas where I sanded a bit too far and orange is now showing through.



For comparison, the ammo clip has not be sanded down yet.





Boots!

If i can find them cheap I want to add some nice driving style gloves and a chest holster so when I remove my jacket there's more to the costume. Seeing a guy with a skull face and leather gloves/holster has got to be pretty terrifying :eek

That rifle looks like something a Brotherhood of Steel sniper would use. The paint job looks so similar to their power armour.

I'll have to check that out and see if I can pull some more influences into the finished in piece.

Thinking about getting an ammo belt and loading it with faux shells for either a waist belt or a sling for the rifle

Very nice. Where'd you find that gun for 17.00? I can never find it for a price like that.

What kind of boots are those? I like 'em. I also like the coat.
