I can't seem to find the lighters in store anymore. Haven't really looked hard but they seem to be gone. I have a couple for myself but they're a different colour.

As for the prop maker who did Cable's rifle, his name is Ken Palkow. I doubt he's got any lighters around as he was purging his shop a few months back due to a move.
Yeah Kenney kcpstudio was posting regularly in this thread a couple years back and it was great. He was having fun watching us try to figure out everything. If I remember right he toyed with us on these lighters and the Fenix light. I think he even gave away some Deadpool memorabilia to the member that figured it out. Good times

- The pants are 99.99% made by production for the film. Through around 2 decades of buying various combat uniforms and 2 years of pretty heavy searching for that exact pant, it has a few details that scream custom. 1.75"-2" belt loops to fit Cobra buckle and angled cargo pockets (both mostly post 2005), front covered button-closed-pockets (more Vietnam era), lack of reinforced knee fabric (more like WW1ish old-school), and a really modern crotch-stitching (like 2010-2015). I intend to one day make a pattern and just go nuts. I'll figure out a way to share that when I do (but that may be a 2021 or 2022 project)

If anyone else has input, please share! I'd love to see this thread come back to life, as I still have to work on my costume and props; this thread has been a huge inspiration to keep me crafting!!

I also did a lot of searching and couldn't find an exact match for the pants.

The closest I could find style wise were these: Surplus Vintage Fatigues Trousers Olive Still on the site but not in stock and no idea when or if they may get more in. The belt loops fit the belt, the pocket flaps are pretty good and the overall style is in theme. The side pockets not being angled is about the only real major mismatch but I can live with that. The pocket ties pictured came in handy, I had a seamstress take these off and reposition them on the side with buckles so they match the style from the movie.

I always love having a cosplay with pockets, very practical at a con!

Just a little bump. I went to my local dollar store and they had the lighters in stock. I'd be happy to pick some up for people willing to pay ($3 for each lighter plus shipping). I'll also have to drain and gut them to make them safe for shipping, but nothing that would affect how they look.

Does anyone know of a store that still stocks the original boots? I just went looking to replace my first pair and have discovered that Bates have updated the model and it has a slightly different appearance and no side zip, which I really loved. Have tried searching the usual locations but everyone seems to have the new model :(
