Team Fortress 2 - RED Medic with Bonesaw, Studio Shoot with Elias Lopez and Neil Creek.

About a month ago, I received an exclusive invitation from two of my favourite cosplay photographers to do a full-day studio shoot with them! Of course, Medic was my first choice to bring... though not a small part of that decision was that it required the least amount of repair to bring back up to snuff. After eGames, part of the valve and the hose broke off the medipack, and the bonesaw was looking a bit worn and tattered. Nothing that a hot glue gun wouldn't fix, anyway.

Medic was also my first costume shot during the day, since he required the least amount of makeup. The only thing I wasn't 100% happy about was my hair (I'd already packed the good comb, and didn't want to dig it out), and how the jacket kept riding up (nothing I can do about that). I considered binding properly, but decided not to, since the other costumes I chose to bring on the day wouldn't need it.

Construction Notes:

  • I drafted and sewed the jacket myself, including the patches. All other clothing items (shirt, tie, pants, gloves and boots) were purchased.
  • I made both the bonesaw and medipack myself, primarily out of foamcore. The gas bottle on the medipack is a 2l Coke bottle that was paper-mâchéd, and attached with spare bits of balsa wood. The rest of the detailing on the medipack were various pieces of plastic and garden tubing.
  • Estimated cost of the costume: ~$90-100AUD, most expensive item being the boots ($50)
  • Estimate time to make the costume: 5 weeks, mostly due to procrastination. The medipack alone took 3-4 days of solid work, as it was the first time I'd ever worked with foamcore.
  • Firsts for this costume:

    • First non-Japanese cosplay
    • First cosplay of a game I've not played
    • First time working with foamcore
    • First prop made in over 2 years (bonesaw - last prop I'd made before this was Mirelle's staff in 2005, I think)
    • First cosplay with a major prop component
    • First professional studio shoot

Where did you purchase the gloves and boots?


Can never find good ones that are not pricey.

Gloves were gardening gloves from Kmart XD Probably around $4? The boots were a lucky find from a cheapy shoe shop, but were still around $50. If you're really pressed for cash, you should be able to just use flat shoes and make boot covers from stretch vinyl. It's actually harder for me to find good vinyl than just spend the money on shoes that I wear with normal clothes anyway :D

Is it a bone-saw painted with the BLU's team blood, or are you just happy to see me?
