    I don't have a specific store or merchant that I get my gear from. I occasionally go to estate sales (kind of like a garage sale but throughout the entire property) and look for some old military gear there. That is how I've accumulated my cosplay/military junk over the years. You can check out this thread for some ideas; however, there aren't too many actual entries of cosplay photos. I know there is another thread out there, I think it was created by Bamul, but it is buried somewhere and I can't find it :/ I'll link you to it if I do. And, unfortunately, topics and discussions about cosplay and concerns are spread out, like wildflowers, all throughout this forum. I know there is a gas mask thread here somewhere, but that too is buried somewhere and I can't locate it :tsk:

    I also managed to find the Your Metro Cosplay thread, and The Gasmask Thread.

    Metro's facebook-page also posted a while back a photo of one cosplayer who had made his own Metro helmet and Bastard-gun:

    @damnation i'd say stick to russian camouflages or us M82 woodland at a stretch. use darker coloured camo, maybe faded kamush or something. some of the darker ss leto is good as well. if you are trying for something similar to miller use gorod-1. gorkas are usually good as well. grey-shop.ru is where i mainly get my gear.
