DIY Sgt. Hammer Cosplay Costumes
MATERIALS YOU WILL NEED

red tank top
glue gun and glue sticks
blonde wig with long hair and bangs
thick gauge brass or gold wire
hairspray, a comb and two hair elastics
black liquid eyeliner http://amzn.to/2trBDTn
STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS
Before starting with the wig, I referred to the cosplay guide to see the hair style. I trimmed the bangs a little so there would be a bit more bangs showing out from under the helmet.
Then separate the rest of the hair into two sections. Plait low braids on each side and secure with elastics.
Next it’s time to add wire to make the braids stay in a rounded position..
Cut two pieces of wire a little longer than each braid. Then slide the wire up into the braid and secure it by wrapping it a few times around the hair elastic at the end of the braid. Then shape it into a gentle curve. Then use a little bit of hairspray to set the braids.
I decided to quickly add a bit of green fabric on the shoulders of the red tank top.
Since your pants will most likely be tucked into boots, you can spare a little bit of the fabric at the bottom of the cuffs. If you don’t have olive green fabric, you can do what I did and use a few inches from your cammo pants.
Cut two small strips and trim them down to squares. Then fold over three raw edges and glue them down with your hot glue gun. Then fold the fabric around the shoulder strap area of the tank top and hot glue the fourth edge underneath.
This is just a fast and easy way to add a green fabric detail on the shoulder. While it is not super accurate, it worked for me as I was doing a one-day cosplay build.
The next detail I wanted to add was a pair of dog tags. The Blizzard guide gives the dog tag information for Sargent Hammer right down to her O negative blood type. You can order a custom set of tags online for around 6 dollars.
