Hi all, I ALMOST didn't post this because of how fantastic everything is on here and my 'cosplay' looks so lame in comparison! The armor doesn't even match that of the game (although I only had a few days to make it)... But oh well, here it is anyway!
For the armor I just bought a vest off eBay (that people tend to use in martial arts etc) and spray painted it silver. I then drilled little holes around the collar and up the shoulders, and pushed through little blue battery-powered LED lights. Oh, and stuck a Gears omen sticker on the front!
I then dressed it up with COG tags and bloody bandages.. and a golden lancer, of course! et voila!
