Southern Hospitality by derpmiester Southern Hospitality by derpmiester
Prop for a cosplay that was meant for SDCC. I ended up with laryngitis to end all laryngitis before I could wear it though. So hopefully this will show up at Anime Los Angeles.

A found wrench, lots of craft foam, sculpy paint and patience.

Well I went for a more realistic approach to the weapon, so it could be a Red team wrench specifically, rather than a more game accurate one-size-fits-all wrench. :D

It's a combination of a Southern Hospitality and the pipe wrench from Half-Life Opposing Force.

Hahaha well I'll have to take your word for it. I don't get to play much Half Life (the only game I know of that gives me motion sickness wtf). :cry:

That's so awesome! I was dressed as the RED Scout for the SDCC, and it's terrible that laryngitis came along to you! D: Are you going again next year? I'll probably be wearing the Scout cosplay again, and GLaDOS another day.

Unless I manage to get a pro badge, or by some miracle get called on to work for the event again, I doubt I will be attending next year. I was super sad I didn't get to wear my engie though when I ran into a massive group of Blus the day I had planned to wear him hahah.

Thanks. Yeah, It's hard to make some of the TF2 designs work irl, which I found out quickly enough while working on this. Hopefully my next props will work a little better though :D

Yeah, I understand. I'm making the Engy and his wrenches based on images, so I know how difficult it can be. :D

Well my Medic props and outfit

But I'll be attending Fanime Con, hurhur

derpmiester Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2010
Aw! Well as long as it gets done at some point, right? :D

And I totally understand that. Trying to get cosplays ready while working around finals was never a fun one hahaha.

Fanime is fantastic! Probably my favorite con overall...but then again, I don't go to many xD

Well I've only been to one con in
my entire life, and it was SDCC
like, four years ago D:

This will be my second con, so I'm
a bit nervous TT__TT

Both ALA and Fanime are pretty relaxed conventions. And so very very small in comparison to SDCC! xD
