Borderlands 2 - Axton Costume/Cosplay by sugarpoultry Borderlands 2 - Axton Costume/Cosplay by sugarpoultry
After an entire month of work, my husband's (:iconthebuzzsaw:) costume is FINALLY done! Sadly many at his work had no clue who he was, just a few did, but he was uber happy to go around as his current hero from his favorite game ever. ;D

Almost everything here was hand made or modified by me.


By far the most difficult costume I've ever put together, but way fun and a major learning experience! Enjoy!

Borderlands Gearbox Software

No offense, & don't take it the wrong way, but he seems a little skinny to be Axton. What I'm saying is, you should get a guy with more muscle mass you know what I'm saying?

Body shape shouldn't matter in cosplay. :) We do it cuz its fun. I cosplayed Maya and I'm nowhere near as skinny as her. *shrugs*

Aww thank you. :) Yah,  lots of people criticize cosplayers and think that cosplay is only for the perfect body type. Absolutely not true! Cosplay whoever you want, no matter your race, height, or weight! :D Took me a long time to realize that, but you find yourself apart of a great community who feel the same way, and it gets much easier!

No, not yet. I've made a goal to finish all the DLC's for the second one before buying it. Cuz I fear I'd never get to them haha!

Awesome costume! I was wondering where you found the jacket or if you made it yourself?

On eBay. It was actually a women's jacket. I searched for aviator jackets.

Hooray! And looks good! I think as we get older, we have more fun dressing up in very specific outfits that other people may not recognize, but we still think is the coolest thing. :D

I'm totally a Heartless from Kingdom Hearts right now, haha.
