I was going to do a "Like A Surgeon" cosplay for New Bedford, but something MUCH bigger is in the works....

Well, here it is! (most of it, anyways)

My costume is similar to remmy's, except I went a little further.

I decided to recreate the Mandatory Fun cover, almost exactly to what it is on the cover. Al's uniform is mostly from around World War II, a forest green US Marine Corps uniform from sometime in the first half of the 1900s (or a replica of one). The high collar and four front pockets, along with the seams and pointed cuffs, all point to that style uniform. Additionally, his uniform's button design was used by the US Navy and Marine Corps during and after WWI. My uniform is the "Charlie Uniform" from the USMC, bought from a Military Surplus store out in Toledo.

I also picked up the ribbons, mini medals, and red cord that was on the cover.

The Medals:
1. Bronze Star (with "V" for Valor)
2. Defense Meritorious Service Medal
3. Navy & Marine Corps Commendation Medal
4. Joint Service Achievement Medal
5. Navy & Marine Corps Achievement Medal (same as #4 but issued by the Navy or Marines instead of the DoD)
6. National Defense Service Medal. I actually have one of these that was issued to my Grandfather in the Navy during the Korean Conflict, but I did not want to wear it.

The Ribbons:

There are 16 on Al's costume, but they are all flipped upside down. This is the order of them left to right, upside down.

Navy Pistol Marksmanship Medal
Navy Rifle Marksmanship Medal (w/ upside down E "expert" device)
Kuwait Liberation Medal (upside down)
National Defense Service Medal
Vietnam Service Medal
Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal
Defense Meritorious Service Medal
European-African-Middle Eastern Campaign Medal
Navy Unit Commendation Medal
Navy Combat Action Medal (upside down)
Navy & Marine Corps Achievement Medal
Joint Service Achievement Medal
Navy & Marine Corps Commendation Medal
Joint Service Commendation Medal (w/ upside-down silver service star)
Meritorious Service Medal
Bronze Star (with upside-down V device)


I bought the red aiguillette (the braided shoulder cord), the Naval Aviator Badge, and all the ribbons and medals from Vanguard, a military merchandise store in Carlsbad, CA. They just arrived today! The star pins were bought from a military surplus store in town.

All I need to get left is the ranks for the jacket, and the pants for the uniform. then I'll be all set for New Bedford. Can't wait!
