    Hey guys, my friend is planning to go to a local con as Kung Fury. I also myself wouldn't mind having a Kung Fury costume. Can we all pool together our resources to work out what the costume is?

    In case you don't know, Kung Fury is an indie film, where in 1985, Kung Fury, the toughest martial artist cop in Miami, goes back in time to kill the worst criminal of all time - kung fuhrer Hitler. It's free to view on YouTube and I may as well post a link because it is the best movie of all time.

    Okay, down to business. This is a decent picture for reference.

    Jeans CONFIRMED CHEAP MONDAY: Not sure on the exact colour, but they're definitely Cheap Monday. David Sandberg said so himself on Reddit. Maybe this shade and fit... http://www.cheapmonday.com/shop-men...ght-dark-clean-wash/4930785-4915283.1#5370740

    Bandana: Pretty sure it's a torn piece of red fabric, as that's how he gets it in the movie.

    Holster: Maybe this one in black... http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...&sr=1-22&keywords=shoulder holster&pldnSite=1

    Gloves: Maybe not exactly these, but look like standard fingerless driving gloves... http://www.amazon.co.uk/FINGERLESS-...339&sr=8-2&keywords=fingerless+driving+gloves

    Nice research and finds!!!
    For the pants, it seems like Cheap Mondays are a UK brand since the pants are sold in pounds. Maybe try and find some skinny fit Jeans somewhere in a US site. UK shipping is expensive. I should know by experience. For the shirt, I saw one shot with Fury and David. Fury was wearing a red shirt like Marty did in BTTF (coincidence?)

    Looks like you almost sourced the entire costume, the only thing I'm not convinced by is the holster. It doesn't quite look like its from the right period.

    Do we see a detailed look in the film? If not, one that looks like it from a visual aspect would fit good
