Myself dressed as a Vietnam-era US soldier, I know not a lot of people have done this before, but I'm certainly not the only one that has done this before.
Before anybody decides to go all moral justice on me about "stolen valor" or impersonating a military official, let me be clear on this. I will not be wearing this in public, this is a costume I set up strictly for convention use. If you don't know what cosplay convention is, it's simply a convention where many people dress up as characters (fictional or not), socialize, buy from vendors or attend panels. Basically, it's like Halloween, but more days.
This is just a test shot, I will debut this cosplay at the next convention, most likely Anime Los Angeles 2016. Unfortunately, I don't always have access to a photographer for better shots and editing to really add in the setting as if I'm really fighting in Vietnam.
