Becoming the Marvel character Hawkeye is something Redditor AnthonyParenti takes very seriously. His new armored Hawkeye suit brings in the purple hues and elements from the classic comic book look. Anthony says the modifications to the Hawkeye costume he already had includes: “brand new chest, new pants, New quiver straps that fit better and hold up better, a cochlear implant, a new bow, a display screen, a neck piece, and more.”
The build included cardboard and paper prototypes/mock-ups before making the actual item from craft foam. He started with the helmet, because as he says, he knew if he could get that to look good, then he could do the whole suit. I’d say he pretty much nailed it. You can take a look at the full costume and a couple of in progress pictures below.
