Saw an awesome cosplayer today while waiting for the bus, in my neighborhood. As I approached him, I thought he was a cop or a security guard, but wearing... is it a flak jacket? Anyway, I was a bit curious why he was wearing the jacket thing to work, but then I got closer to him and saw that the security card was for the Umbrella corporation, and the text on the back of the uniform said S.T.A.R.S., which apparently means Special Tactical And Rescue Service. If you haven't yet figured it out, he was cosplaying a character from Resident Evil. :-) Oh, he also had camo pants on.
We got to talking, after I complimented him on his costume (he was impressed, I think I was the first person to recognize it was a costume). He also had this awesome plastic clip-on canteen. I asked him where he got it, because I would like one (I keep forgetting water when going out and about), but I forgot where he said he got it.
