Cosplayer Dr Tights > Costume of Deathstroke from DC Comics
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- only my legit second costume
All completed in about 1 week if you don't count the days it took for the stuff to get delivered.
Basically Frankenstein'd it from parts i bought from online stores. All pretty cheap too! the guns, foam rubber sword, belts, etc all from amazon. got a great deal on the guns at 98 cents each.
Probably the most expensive thing was the mask, a purchase from eBay from Wolfram Creative. They have other great masks and they're very comfortable.
I used clothes with moisture wicking to keep pretty cool and dry throughout the day. And a heatgear balaclava to keep the mask from moving around too much and keep the sweat down to a minimum.
Later on i plan to add painted armor pieces.
- Personal Thoughts:
- Didn't know anything about the character until i started playing DC universe Online. Looked him up and found out he has a long history as one of the most feared mercenaries in the DCU.
fun fact! DEADPOOL was based on Deathstroke, his artist Rob Liefeld tried to take him to the marvel and they basically told him "this is deathstroke from Teen Titans.."
So he gave him the name "Wade Wilson" instead of Slade lol.
anyway.. in other words Deadpool is like an illegitimate son or something.
