    Although not as popular as Cap, or any of the other members… I thought I would throw together the info I’ve gathered on Hawkeye, or at least what I have up to this point and am working for my personal costume… Please feel free to add/correct as more accurate stuff is found.

    Avengers

    Elastic straps- Left 1.5” non-rolled / Right 1.5" braided and .75” non-rolled
    Leg buckles- Left 1.5” Loop buckles/1.5" Double bar D Rings / Right 1.5”-.75” reducing buckle times 2 (one for the front and one for the back)
    2-1" Austrial pin slide lock buckle and a custom tooled leather piece (used as a mating buckle between the pants and vest) / 1" elastic strap non-rolled

    Vest

    “Kidney” ribbing / collar accent- Black leather matching the knee panel detail(smooth)

    Finger Tabs

    Look to be custom?- black leather finger cups w/tan leather "dots" / black leather wrist cuff w/ 2 black line 24 snaps / maroon leather centerpiece attached to three hasps with black elastic


    Age of Ultron

    Boots
    They don’t look changed or modified other than the addition of the new Starkarrow tech that’s added to the outer portions of the boots.
    Bifida tread by Vibram
    Custom leather gaiter w/ rear zipper
    Joe Rocket Super Street/Meteor/Sonic Boot Buckles

    Pants
    Again doesn’t look like a change to the pants. The material feels like rough cotton with asilicone or “rubber” feel to the striping that runs horizontal. I thought itmay be a dobby type fabric but cannot confirm.

    Great information! Thanks for starting this.

    If anyone has links to behind the scenes, documentaries, etc., post up the links.

    I'm sure we'll have more info after the movie opens on Friday.

    I hope he can give us some insight. I was thinking maybe the quiver could be made of fiberglass.


    Anyone know of a good collaborative photo hosting site? That way any of us can add photos.

    Great pics! Some of those I haven't seen yet.

    Something I just noticed, it looks like the vest and the pants are one piece. Notice there's no seam line at the hip?

    Also, the strap/buckle that comes around under the arm looks like it's part of the quiver support.

    His main belt buckle looks like a cop-lok type. It has the 2 sides releases and an extra release in the center.
    Looks like an older squarer type though.

    I think I'm on the right track for the hinge on the bow. It's a plastic hinge.

    It's close, but not exact.

    On the vest/pants it's actually both, or at least that's what I've found. The outer panel on the pants is seamless and continues up the kidney/back panel of the vest, all the same material so one would think a "unitard/jumpsuit" type of garment. But in the 20 min behind the scenes I mentioned earlier, the entire panel is rolled up and secured by the hip straps on the pants and the vest is removed completely. It looks like a great way to keep the look of a one piece but have the convenience of removing the vest if needed. While putting together my pattern I'll just use Velcro under the panel for the vest portion to keep the seamless look and make it as close as possible without knowing exactly how they did it.

    Also good eye on the quiver straps, they seem to just keep it in place during movement and serve no other purpose.

    Thought the same thing, but for the life of me I have not been able to find the right one. 8 days of searching the internet for every type of side release/quick release buckle for 3-4 hrs a day almost made my eyes bleed...

    Dash, do you have the link to that youtube vid? I can't find it.

    Has anyone had any luck finding the boots? I can't find them anywhere.

    Why is it that every time I start a new costume project the shoes/boots are always the most expensive, hard to find item? (Aside from the bow in this case.) Just once, I wish the costume designer would pick something easy to find. Something where I could just go to the store and buy them.

    Boots...it's always the boots!

    Not sure if that's going to work. I don't see the slide locks between the vest/pants doing any more than keeping the two together during movement. I would be more inclined to see a large "tab" on the quiver that fits into a slot on the vest and is then held in place by the underarm straps.
    But if it did work along the lines of what you're saying, I could see a "tab", two straps through slots in the back of vest, over the shoulders and attaching through the ribbing to the slide locks and then secured by the underarm straps?

    I looked around a bit myself. Bianchi has one close. Bianchi Model 7950 AccuMold Elite Duty Belt.

    Or maybe it's a fake. Just a common snap lock with a rectangle glued on.

    I've been analyzing the pic's I have of the quiver and came up with a quick sketch of the overall shape and details. Obviously the proportions and angles are off. But you get the general idea.

    I happened to see the buckle while watching the movie. The center looked very close to the Bianchi I linked in post #22. But the belt connection sides were different.

    I wonder if they had an older model?

    Got some new images of the quiver. And after seeing the movie I have a better idea of how it's put together. I'll be working on some more sketches and possibly a 3D model.

    I don't know if you've seen this but there was a thread with a link to some super hi-res images of the Avengers, including Hawkeye. The images give you a really good look at the texture of the costume and looking at them I'd say that Hawkeye's costume is made from sort of nylon.

    Awesome, thanks. I think I'm going to do a quick and easy version of this costume to start with and to wear when I go to a friends Avengers-themed party later this month. The vest is close enough to the Blackhawk ITS HP vest:
    Blackhawk ITS HPFU V.2 Performance Vest

    For the time being I'm just going to wear it with my regular black tactical pants. I've got an old compound bow that I'm going to paint black, and I've got a thigh holster for my Glock. Should be a good enough look for a quick build.

    Hi Gang,

    The holster looks like a Safariland; can't quite tell on the pistol, but I'm guessing either a glock (Black Widow has a Glock 23), or an HK P30 (the rear sights are fairly unique: a tapered wedge).

    On the boots, I'm not convinced about the current call? The eyelets are silver, and there is a strip of leather below the laces (granted, that could be a custom addition). I remember the sole looking very much like a Vibram lug when watching the movie.

    I think the boots are correct. However, the correct spelling is Highlander Sympatex Forces Boot.

    It's this discontinued version

    [​IMG]

    Not the new version.

    Dang, you're right. The eyelets are still the wrong color, but that could be wear of the black paint.

    The good news is that the Vibram lug is pretty common, so there might be a 90% match with an in-stock boot somewhere? Since so much is covered by the gaiter, and the toe is customized with the tab, matching the lug becomes the most critical part, I think?

    Here's the boot and buckle.

    The buckle looks different in the movie and other shots, with a rectangular piece in the middle.

    [​IMG]

    The boot has been altered with the legging sown into it. Even so, the side leather looks different than the Sympatex Forces Boot.

    I think I'm only partially correct. Look at these closeups...

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    I think it's the correct sole. But the eyelets are wrong. The screen boot has at least 7 eyelets. But the Sympatex boot has 6 eyelets and then the rings start.

    O K, one last thing. According to the Vibram site, the sole is called #1375 Bifida and it's available on Carolina and Danner boot's. I just looked at everything on Carolina and Danner site's and didn't see anything.

    Maybe you guys will have better luck.

    Fantastic close-ups!

    A couple things that it looks like to me; the smaller underarm buckles look to be just smaller versions of the belt buckle, not the "V" types. The knees look to be the same as the nylon as the pants panels.

    The boots, I'm still not convinced they're not the Highlanders; every other boot with the Vibram Bifida sole is not even close. Just an observation but the rings after the 6th eyelet look to match those on the finger tab. Not saying it's the rings that were removed and re-used but not entirely out of possibilities. :confused

    Vibram sells 20 million soles a year. So there must be the same sole on many boots. Once you start looking for boots you realize how many there are being sold.

    Yeah, I went through 20 pages of Google links for 'vibram bifida' and didn't find the right boots yet. The soles are available separately as a repair piece, so it's conceivable they built the boots from scratch (though I really hope not!).

    Agreed, and after several weeks of following every lead for the correct sole with the approximation of the same boot I was inclined to believe they were completely fabricated from scratch or I was just "missing" something, but also taking into consideration the amount of other used of the shelf items it doesn't seem sensible (at least to me) that they would have started from scratch. But honestly at this point with knowing that they're discontinued and a true pain to get ordered if you can find them, it would probably just be a better scenario to order the sole and have some custom made or use a boot "base" and go from there. The pair I ordered should be in soon, I'll post pics and ideas on how to go about the gaiters for those interested.

    You guys beat me to it.

    I was thinking about this last night and I think we're chasing a ghost here.

    I'm sure they used some base boot. But then all the custom work was done. Then a new sole was put on. The reason I think this is true, is because after all the extra leather was added to the surface of the base boot, it still tucks into the sole. If it was added to the surface of the boot with the sole already attached, there would be an edge where the leather meets the sole.

    So to replicate these boots, here's what I'm thinking.
    *Find a base boot that matches what we can see, mainly the eyelets.
    *Have the sole removed.
    *Add all the custom leather work.
    *Have the correct sole attached.

    The other option is to add the custom leather work to a boot that looks right and forget about the sole.

    I think that option B would be the cheapest and easiest to do, besides, who's really going to be paying all that much attention to the soles of your boots? No one is going to go up to you and say, "Nice Hawkeye, except for the soles on your boots". People are going to see the whole get up and see Hawkeye and I bet that even people here won't notice the soles aren't correct unless they look at a picture of your costume at home and compare to pics of the real deal.
