Well, it's that time again.
All of the summer conventions are well on their way, and now's the time when everybody makes their cosplays for the year.
I'm going for a Team Fortress 2 Soldier (and have vowed to either use the Trolldier [Rocket Jumper, Mantreads, Market Gardener] or the Airborne Armaments [ wiki.teamfortress.com/wiki/Air…
Liberty Launcher, Reserve Shooter, Market Gardener, Jumper's Jeepcap] loadout. Because I've seen enough boring vanilla class cosplays, and wanted to mix things up a bit.
My compiled list so far is as follows for the Soldier cosplay:

DEFAULT ROCKET LAUNCHER:
*4.5" diameter PVC pipe
*2" thick insulating foam
*0.5" thick insulating foam
*24x36" sheet metal
*1/8" craft foam
*small piece of 1/2" wood (for the handles)

As for another new cosplay, I've been really meaning to do Jacket from Hotline Miami, which is still my favorite video game of all time.
