UBCS stands for Umbrella Biohazard Countermeasure Service. I guess you could say this was a concept costume. When you join a costuming group and their main focus at the time is Resident Evil, you can come out with with some really creative stuff. I give credit for the whole concept to Moshi and Vixen. Vixen has almost the exact same costume since we were meant to be uniform. :) The differences are in our use of accessories.

This is when I learned to make catsuits. I was so happy making catsuits that I made three out of three different materials just because. The catsuit pattern is from Kwik Sew.

The vest is freaking awesome. It is a modified Icon Motorcycle Vest. Took off all the plastic detailing and logos. Slapped on the Umbrella Corp. logo and shortened the straps since the size small was still too big for me. Gloves, elbow pads, knee pads, and belt can all be found at various places like the Army surplus store or any sports stores. Boots are from Hot Topic. When you get to accessories you pretty much can do whatever you want. It really does not have to be said that airsoft guns make great weapons in costuming.

That is intense! What's your left hand doing?

Know any good places to look for AirSofts? I just looked online, but now I hear there are gas-operated ones with a blowback mechanism... and I might want to buy a couple rifles, too, so I don't want to end up with cheapo knockoffs that are on the verge of breaking (though the price was right, for now).

Also... are your services for hire? I need a shirt that looks like the tracksuit from Game of Death / Kill Bill, and I don't know how I'd do this.

My left hand is on a zombie! XD My WPE costuming group did the Resident Evil theme for the Dragon*Con Parade a couple years ago and some people were zombies! So some of us got to rough up some zombies.

I don't know of any good Airsoft resources off the top of my head. If I hear anything I'll let you know. Generally I buy them for costuming and aesthetics as opposed to actual use. I totally know what you mean about on the verge of breaking. XD

I can totally make you a shirt a la Game of Death. It doesn't look too difficult. Message me describing exactly what you want and we can figure it out. :)
