So, this is what I have been brewing over the last couple of months. I have an exquisite beard, and it MUST be put to good use. After DragonCon, I will shave it, then start growing it again in November. This will be par for the course each year, or at least I am hoping that is the way it will be.
Zangief: When it comes to it, this character would be fun to play. The problem is that he is so damn ripped. At one point, I found the link to make a proper mohawk with a skullcap. However, I lost it. Well, at least I have another year.
When I finally cosplay this character, I will want to act out with the Russian language and heavy accent. There will be a big investment for getting ready for this.
Ultimately, if I can just get myself into awesome shape one year, I would consider this a remarkable achievement. However, it won’t be this year, sadly.
Max Payne: This was the more viable option. Honestly, I am not the biggest fan of the third in the series, because it lost that noir polish, however the story with the commentary on modern America was an interesting change of pace.
Anyways, here were my purchases to make it work:
Airsoft Deagle: http://www.amazon.com/Desert-Eagle-Magnum-Softair-Pistol/dp/B001KN317A/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1408858553&sr=8-2&keywords=airsoft+deagle
Gun Sling: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002DS1F2E/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Here is the final product.
Here are other characters to consider in the future.
Bitores Mendez from Resident Evil 4
Trevor from GTA 5
Anyways, I hope you are able to make it to DragonCon. I am really looking forward to it. See you on the other side, folks!
