Title: New to cosplay- Armageddon Steel Legion cosplay
Post by: GuardsmenEvan on December 01, 2016, 08:35:15 PM
Hello everyone, first off glory to the Emperor of Mankind! Second I am starting to work on a Armageddon Steel Legionnaire costume, and was wondering if anyone had some suggestions on what gas masks to base it off? Like a real world one I can start with and add details to. Also kneed high boots that I often see in the depictions of them, anyone have any suggestions? Thanks, the Emperor Protects!

For boots, you may want to look at German riding boots. They are very narrow in the foot and can in incredibly uncomfortable if worn while walking for too long. An alternate would be to make boot covers and then cover them in patent leather.

There were no gas masks like this, not even during I WW. I'd suggest building one from EVA foam or sewing it from leather. The shape is quite simple, so it shouldn't be difficult at all.
I'd suggest starting with sewing the coat so that you will have first layer of your costume. You can add pouches and the rest later.

Extremely late to the game here, but to me that looks more similar to a WW2 bomber group mask used for air at high altitude.

It would need some modification to fit and look correct with a helmet, but shouldn't be too hard from what I see.

Also extremely new to the forums, so I hope that I posted that picture correctly. Take care!
