About this Costume
Construction Details:
Old-school goodness! This actually wasn't too hard to make. Took two weeks (and two tries) to make the Spreadshot powerup, and the pants just had to be dyed the shade of red they currently have. The bandana was hemmed together by hand, and...really, that's all there was to it. The boots are the same ones I use for Ace Ventura, and the gun was borrowed by my friend, Matt, who was also my Bill Rizer for Dragon*Con.
Personal Thoughts:
The idea for this had been played for D*C 2008, but since Matt couldn't make it that year, we postponed it. So, in 2009, we finally got our chance to do the costumes. They're actually based off a reference in the Japanese manual where Lance and Bill are wearing red and blue colored camo pants. Either way, the costumes came out great and people who recognized it loved it, so we'll hopefully be wearing these again real soon.
