Team Fortress 2 Cosplay

By Alec Meer on October 29th, 2007 at 2:21 pm.

You’ve already seen the Portal Halloween costume – now here’s the Team Fortress 2 one (click pic to embiggen).

Extramegoultra bonus points for actually fricking building the Heavy’s gun.

Big thanks to Thiefsie for sending it over. Its original source has been located here, where you’ll find a bunch of other images of Janvitos and his RED chums.

Update: and Thiefsie follows up his find with this (click to see full version in its original home):

I wouldn’t like to say which one is most awesome. Because they are both awesome.

    http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showthread.php?t=606848 seems to be where the creators originally revealed their achievement to an unsuspecting interweb.

  3. Thiefsie says:

    Oh my… that is beyond awesomeness… ahahahaha

    thanks for that!

    I find it interesting they’ve all gone red. Someone autobalance.

    KG

  5. Man Raised By Puffins says:

    While generally awesome, I’m inexplicably disappointed that neither of the Scouts seem to be sporting authentic plus fours.

  6. Seniath says:

    What is it with TF2 and the clear RED bias. I don’t see why they get all the limelight, they’re a bunch of hill billies!

    In other news, this is bloody awesome.

  7. drunkymonkey says:

    Haha, news story of the week to be sure. I dig the happy shot of the Heavy Weapons Guy.

    And yeah, blue are better: Industry will always triumph over Agriculture!

  8. Theory says:

    Has no-one else noticed that they all have enormous heads in the second photo?

    We should create a Blu team and send them over to wherever these people are for a fight. :-)

  9. Matthew Gallant says:

    While a more amateur attempt then these people, I liked Sam & Fuzzy author Sam Logan and his wife’s Halloween disguise: 2 Red Engineers.

  10. The_B says:

    Actually, how do you know it’s not just a Blu team full of spies in disguise eh? EH?

  11. Seniath says:

    Well, that would imply I’m a RED. Which I’m not, I’m BLU through and through =D

  12. Tom says:

    You’ve been reading far to Jasper Fforde Alec… but that’s understandable.

  13. Cargo Cult says:

    Altogether now!

    “The RED team’s flag is deepest red,
    It shrouded oft our gibb’ed dead
    And ere ragdolls grew stiff and cold,
    Their blood decals on ev’ry fold.

    Look round, the pyro loves its blaze,
    The sturdy heavy chants its praise,
    In 2fort’s vaults its hymns are sung,
    And Dustbowl swells the surging throng.

    Then raise the scarlet standard high,
    Within its shade we’ll frag and die,
    Though engies burn and BLU spies sneer,
    We’ll keep the RED flag flying here!”

    … I’m sorry. So very, very sorry.

  14. Alec Meer says:

    I have read no Jasper Fforde, ever. In what way have I evoked him, out of curiosity?

  15. RevGlider says:

    I like how you can tell that the group in the second photo rolls with 0 black people in their clique (it’s just a joke people, laugh at it).

  16. Eschatos says:

    Yeah! White demoman for the lose!

  17. Optimaximal says:

    Is the Pyro’s sex still ambiguous?

  18. Jumpers McTangles says:

    Mmmm, lady scout is hawt.

  19. your mom says:

    very… AWESOME!!!!! love tf2. send me the plans for the minigun. me and my friends r thinking of doing the full red and blue.

  20. twodavez says:

    Does anyone have any good specs on what the TF2′s Heavy’s gun looks like/what could be used to make it? I’m looking into being a Heavy for Halloween and i’d like to mod my shuttle PC into the Gas tank on the Heavy’s gun for a PC Mod contest for a LAN happening the weekend before halloween.
    Any up close pics would be much appreciated along with what works and what doesn’t. I’ve seen many online, but no one shows the steps of building one. If i try to do one myself, i promise to post pics.
    Please email me: twodavez@gmail.com

    Thanks for any help you can offer!
