Meet the Pyro by MasqueradeLover Meet the Pyro by MasqueradeLover
This is the cosplay that I entered in the first ever Ottawa Comic Con Masquerade. I went as the Pyro from Team Fortress 2. It was my first time entering a Masquerade and I was very happy with how it went. I met some great people and I had a lot of fun.
I won: Best in Class (Novice) and Best Props (Novice).

I don't mind at all. It seems like the suit is the most difficult thing to find/make. Your blog will probably help a lot of people.
I found the suit at an army surplus store. It's actually a red mechanic's suit (kind of like this but with a collared neck: [link]). It had a racing stripe stitched to the front that I removed. It was the only one they had in red at that store and I was lucky to find it a few sizes too big (the bulkier, the better- it hides curves better if you're female :P). I'm sure suits like these are available on ebay.
I think getting/making the suit in a fabric that is not rubber or plastic-y is a good idea. This cosplay is hot enough as is without trapping in your body heat with a non-breathable material. I wore this one to late spring/summer conventions and sometimes I felt like I was dying from the heat :P.
I hope this is helpful for people looking for a suit. I always suggest going to army surplus stores in/near/around your area first and then checking online. I found my gas mask at the same store as the suit.
Would you be able to send me a link to your blog?
