This instructable will show you how to create a "toy soldier" Halloween costume. Sure to win any local costume contest! But don't keep it all to yourself, get together with a few friends, and create a whole army of soldiers!
Step 1: Supplies!
Below is a list of supplies that I used. Feel free to add additional items, or adjust the items to fit your specific needs. I found a trip to the local army surplus store to be very helpful. A simple Google search for "army surplus store" should locate the closest one to you.
Belt Accessories (Pouches, Ammo, Grenades, etc.)
Plastic Toy Gun
Spray Paint (3-4 cans)
* These are the tools I used to create the base plate. The base plate could easily be made from foam, or a thin piece of plywood, but I felt the thickness of the wood really gave the costume that extra edge.
