This Covers:
*Shirt
*Pants
*Socks
*Shoes
*The Bag
*Hat
*Headphone with mic
*Bat (actuallly you dont need a fake one, but i live in argentina and there's not a lot of cheap baseball gear here, so im going to make one!)

Before you can cosplay somebody or something, you will need something to start with. I took these pictures of the Scout from http://www.teamfortress2.de/tf2_class_scout.php and as there are 3 views its a good thing to start with. There were also pics of the bat that will be in the correspondient step.

Step 2: Go Shopping!

Well this is the pics and the instructons on going shopping the things you need

For this costume you will need:
-A plain RED or BLU t-shirt
-A black hat
-Black cargo pants
-Long white socks
-Sport Sneakers (nobody will be looking at your shoes, so use any dark colour sneakers)
-Sport bandages for the hands
-A black bag that you can put on like the scout
-Regular baseball belt
-For the BAT
--A stick
--Newspaper
--Aluminium foil
--Tape (scotch)
--Tape (electrical or black duct tape)

Step 4: Clothing

Just dress up like the pictures!
Be careful cause you need to:
*Put the shirt inside the pants, then put on the belt
*Put the pants inside the socks and make the socks and hold the socks up
*If your headphone has a cable, hide it inside the tee

I know where you can get a BOSS scattergun for like 35 bucks. Its freakin awesome! The dude also makes other epic tf2 cosplay items such as sniper rifles, flamethrowers and the black box! heres the link to the scattergun on ebay:http://www.ebay.com/itm/Scout-Scattergun-from-Team-Fortress-2-cosplay-/261110513081?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3ccb663db9

One quick tip, if you have the budget, Adidas Sambas make great shoes to be a Scout.

damn straight. remember. "birds. fly. trees grow. and brother, you hurt people"

Moar liek "Birds Fly, Grass Grows, Sun Shines. And brother, I hurt people!." i repeated that phrase every time someone asked what the hell i was dressed as.
Apparently, I actually have the offical Force A Nature shirt AND a Scout track jacket. I always say that when I'm Scout. c:

Really good instructable, but I think you have been better off using a real bat. I also think it's funny how lame everyone else's costume is.

if anyone is interested in making cheap tf2 props, I'm going to be putting on some instructables soon.
The scout is from Boston, Massachusetts. Not Brooklyn New York. You have a typo. Just  correcting you.
He actually is from Brooklyn, one of the achievements for the Scout is "Dodgers 1, Giants 0" now i suppose that could also mean he's from L.A. but he has a Brooklyn accent.
infact http://wiki.teamfortress.com/wiki/Scout all you need to know
no hes from boston he has several references to the redsox as well the reason they reference the dodgers and giants is not for where he lives but the size of heavy weapons guy vs. scout its been mentioned many times the scout does live in boston
Why not just use a real bat?
At most conventions real bats can be illigal.
I see.

The shoes the scout's wearing in the render look like this specific make of Nike sports cleats for some reason. Oh well. Black sneaks with white electrical tape, GO!

Other than that, all I need is the bag the headset and possibly the dog tags.

 Can't you just use a bat?
santy22 (author)  scott!5 years ago
 If i made a bat, that would mean "NO"
The reason i made it was i'm not a fancy baseball-freak yankee who has 10 bats in his room. I'm from argentina, and we play soccer and polo around here.
I dont play any sport and even i have a baseball bat around my house.
Well its more a standard bat.

I'm trying to figure out what to dress as next halloween. i usually take a long time to make up my mind/ make a costume... so i start around this time. i'm thinking of going as a TF2 character... either the pyro, or the heavy... My favorite class is the pyro, but i dunno where to get a bloody gas mask(could make one i guess...).
