New California Republic Veteran Ranger Costume

So I haven't built a costume in about 4 years, so I decided to bust something new out for San Diego Comic Con 2011.  It took me about 3 months of straight construction, but I completed my NCR Veteran Ranger outfit from Fallout: New Vegas.


The helmet was scratch built out of styrene and sintra, the armour was made out of high impact foam which was formed to my body and adhered to a foam vest.  The pants are just straight jeans with a boot cut, and the boots are some flat toed Wranglers.  The belts and duster were all home made using leather and duck cloth, and the flag was constructed by taking two California Flags and connecting them by chopping one up.
