Just thought I'd show you guys my equipment builds. They aren't all the way done, still need some paint and stuff like that...but you get the idea. Now I know the GB community is pretty hardcore, but let me say this first: they aren't anything flashy or overdone, they are cardboard, they aren't 100 percent accurate, but we had a lot of fun making them. My wife did a lot of the work and I helped paint and what not ( I am not crafty at all ). We mainly did it for my daughter's b-day party, she loves Ghostbusters just like I did when I was a kid, so she is gonna be so excited. I even got a rothco flightsuit, pistol belt, custom name badge and patch .
We got most of the parts at the dollar tree and around the house (ethernet cables, etc). The backpack isn't accurate (especially the frame, ALICE packs aren't too cheap) but I am pretty happy with it. I wish I was good with cutting aluminum and building stuff, but I am not . I really appreciate my wife though, she has a lot of patience and was good with eyeballing stuff and building this so a lot of the credit goes to her. My daughter has watched us building it and already loves the stuff, and I am sure when I wear it all, it will come together quite well. Some of the pics of the proton pack are half-done, but it's almost complete. The gun is not finished yet, but that is probably the hardest part (the switches and grip) we are just trying our best on that one...can't be too picky with a dollar tree gun haha.
