Hi guys this is my first instructable, so I am still trying to get the hang of it, Well enjoy
Step 1: Materials
The clothes are easy to get depending on if you live near a military store and what type of soldier you are going as( I am going as a soldier from 1980 -2005 as the title said), I got mine for roughly $200 new. However, you might want to go the used clothes route if on a tight budget. also for the weapon I am using airsoft guns, you can use either air soft, Nerf or paintball. primary materials : 1) Woodland camo jacket. 2) woodland camo pants. 3) woodland camo military cap. 4) black military boots. 5) military or leather gloves. 6) black or woodland camo shirt. 7) primary gun. a belt ( any belt that fits will work optional martials: 1) face paint(s) 2) sunglasses. 3) secondary weapon with holster
Step 2: Step One (pants)
I put on the pants first and then a belt don't forget to tie the legs at the bottom ( if you have a side arm and holster I recommend putting them on now)
Step 3: Step 2 (boots)
now time for the boots CAUTION if the boots are new DONOT tie them too tight because they will hurt when walking
Step 4: Step 3 (shirt)
next put on either the black shirt or camo shirt and tuck it into your pants.
Step 5: Step 4 (jacket)
now put on your military jacket. also if you have buttons on the cuffs be sure to button them, and if your shirt has a white or grey collar be sure to button the jacket to the top it may be uncomfortable at first but you will get used to it.
Step 6: Step 5 (hat, Sunglasses, Face Paint, and Gloves)
ok now that you have on your uniform its time to look either cool or hidden or both. first cover you face in green ( or whatever color fits your terrain) face paint ( I have done some research and not sure but you can put on baby lotion before the face paint) then the brown goes on but make sure it goes diagonal around your eyes nose and mouth. now put on the black in splotches on in order to break up the faces outline. after the paint dries put on you sunglasses if you choose too.. then the hat and lastly your gloves.
Step 7: The Finished Product
you are now dressed up and ready to go out and have fun so grab your gun(s) and go ( remember DONT bring ammo with airsoft guns and be safe.) I am not responsible for anything you or your friends do.
