    Both costumes look great. I do agree with Tantive 4, your wifes armor needs to be resized. Other wise great job.

    Dude, killer job on both

    I love the sword you're holding, got any better pics of it?
    The use of the Nerf longshot has become a phenomenon lately, but it's a good one.

    The RF on your helmet is still blue, I (personally) would fix it.

    Keep up the work, man.
    Oh, you got PM.

    Peace,
    ZK

    Looking great man! Just like the other said, wife needs a little trim on the chest armor but overall it looks great! It's nice to see husband/wife, boyfriend/girlfriend mando =D We've gotten a few couples in Mercs lately and it's great to see that families share the passion for costuming.

    You can also use snaps on your leg armor if you wanted to go that route. As long as your holsters have the leg straps then that will keep it from turning around your leg on you.

    I may try that right now not much is working. I am also thinking of replacing the gun belt.
