Default Death Korps Cosplay

Hi everyone,

So, in preparation for the 2013 Games Day me and some friends are going to be doing a Death Korps cos-play :D

We'll be useing these gas masks: ISRAELI GAS MASK RESPIRATOR & FILTER SIZE 1 ADULT | eBay

Old german greatcoats and various ammo pouches etc. with repainted nerf weapons.

Our aim is to reproduce a company command squad with commander, standard bearer, medic and vox caster with other squadies aswell.

Hopefully will have more pics up soon

Cosplaying a DKOK... the only other non dirty reason for buying a gasmask other than it's intended purpose.

Looking forward to seeing how this turns out, be sure to post updates.

This should look good. I certain that most of the items can come from ex army stock.

You will obviously will need to be asking 'Are you my mummy?' whilst wearing the gas mask.

Your toast has been burnt and no amount of scraping will get rid of the black bits.

Defiantly, also interspersed with various DKOK quotes and "Are you a ..... Heretic???"

Definitely can't wait to see how this turns out. When you get the masks will you be adding in a hose at the 'mouth' like the DKoK masks seem to have or just going with the masks as purchased?

Damnation is paved on good intentions; subtle and sugar coated or blunt and honest
A hero is someone who steps up when everyone else backs down.
Popularity is what people strive for when they lack the strength to be themselves.


Seriously, is it really that hard to write reviews without spoilers?

Good to see your making progress.
