Minor nit-pick from a military guy: if he's on patrol, he needs that weapon at the ready; that means both hands on the rifle, finger in the trigger guard.

I agree, with both parts: Blow a purplebelly to warm slices of cowardly meat, and have the rifle ready to blow away some ass. COOL PICTURE!!!!!! Say... what if you made a film of this? That would be just shiny as all Hell...

I like the idea of making your own stuff like this. Very cool.

BTW, the abuser is from the UK, a DSL customer, and his ISP is Energis.

I like banzaibill... he gets it done.

And I'm still very much in the mood to marry you :) Always did love a man in uniform, for all 17 years of my life *smiles*

Your whole uniform is just way too cool. The fact that you've gone through all this effort is enough to show how cool you really are. (and the fact that it looks perfect too... that's always a plus!)

Keep it up! I'm not out of marriage proposals until the fat lady (or purplebelly sings)


*just gave you a 10*

Railean: Find me an Alliance cosplayer/costumer and get'm to show up to the next Atlanta photoshoot and I'll make it happen. ^_^

Causal: To be honest all the photos, posted and to-come, were all posed and shot on the fly without thought of the
narratives I'm throwing in for each caption. But I guess the "in character" excuse would be that Browncoat Soldier was a volunteer and like many Independents was given a gun and sent to the front with a modicum of training. (Plus what kind of unit sends someone to patrol solo?)

Araglas, I'm terribly flattered ^_^! But like on the description link I posted in the previous picture, the costume was just assembled from items I found, bought, or borrowed. Anyone can assemble a Browncoat-esque Uniform (Which I encourage anyone with an interst to do).

And Maboroshi, the photographer, is a top notch shooter and knows how to bring out the best of any cosplayer/costumer.

Banzaibill: Thanks for the info.

The Independents had Dinosaurs
So... how'd the independents cut us off?

They were using dinosaurs.

Spike wins Firefly
Looks like Spike Spielgal of Cowboy Bebop was the lucky winner of the DVD Box set (fundraising raffle).
