That is some pretty good cosplay, and I really like the effort that went into the weapons.

"Hey, what's that Muton holding in his hand? Is that a...GRENADE!"

This is really minutely detailed. I love it!

I am very happy to see that you guys kept the scale of the guns game-accurate :)

You idiots!  Researching Carapace Armor should be the higher priority than Beam Weapons!

 

On a serious note, these cosplays are the cosplays of my dreams.  Both he level of attention to the body armor as well as the spot on recreations of both rifles just give me warm fuzzy feelings inside.  I do like how there's a little variation between the two of yours, with how Jeff's has the smoother rounder look and shoulder pads, meanwhile yours quite accomplishes the bulky look that the developers wanted in Enemy Unknown.  All around, two spot on, awesome cosplays.

GET THOSE SOLDIERS OUT OF LOW COVER AND INTO HIGH COVER! Are all of the aliens dead? THEN HUNKER DOWN, YOU'RE GONNA DIE!

Wait a minute. Why does the rookie-looking guy have the laser rifle?

Give best gear to worst soldiers so they survive

That doesn't make any sense. The worst soldiers are more likely to fail, and if the best soldiers die, they all die.

yeah but rookies don't get chance to get higher rank if they don't even have chance to kill aliens

Like I said, if the good soldiers can't perform their task effectively, then the rookies sure as hell won't and the whole squad will be wiped out. Maybe if you were training, but even then this is a terrible idea.

I only really used rookies when most of my A-team is wounded so the best soldier left wasn't going to do much with shit soldiers around him ergo best weapons for rookies

There's nothing wrong with using rookies, it's just when you don't have many advanced weapons and you give them to the rookies as opposed to the higher-ranking soldiers that you're going to be doomed.

I want that uniform and Laser Rifle! Would be better if you had Carapace Armor to go with the rifle, in my opinion.

We actually wanted to make the armors (and are still planning to). But we only had 2 weeks before the con before we actually pulled the trigger on these. Next years plans include carapace and archangel, along with plasma weapons

Yay! I love the new Xcom games and I play the old ones too for a while. Since then, I've been wanting to cosplay as them for a while.

Looks good.

 

I'm working on my own XCOM cosplay. I'm using EVA foam for the vest and shoulder pieces. What did you guys use?

We used the same actually! We just covered it in fabric lol

What fabric? I just painted over the EVA foam cause I could never pin down the type of fabric that would look good.

Somehow we managed to use the same kind. I'm not sure what it's called exactly because I found it in our sewing room. It's a semi-suede stretchy fabric though, and it shouldn't be too hard to find if you find a place that sells suedes

Okay.

 

Before I forget, did you use EVA foam for the rifles too?

Nope! Jeff's Rifle was 3d printed and mine was milled out of MDF on a milling machine
