Deathstroke is a supervillain that resides in the DC universe. Created by Marv Wolfman and George Perez in the 1980’s, Deathstroke is as ruthless has name implies. He is most notably known for being an enemy of the teen titans. Deathstroke was originally a U.S soldier, he gains superhuman strength from a super-solider project. Deathstroke becomes obsessed with revenge when his son is Grant is killed. He also recently appears in the tv series “Arrow” in which he seeks vengeance for the death of shadow, in which he blames the arrow for.
The Deathstroke costume is quite complex as there are a lot of parts to it. The essential items in this Deathstroke outfit are the infamous Deathstroke mask and the black armour and clothes which I managed to find. I have included links below to make it easier.
Deathstroke costume Mask
The Deathstroke costume mask has a two tone color to it, black and orange. I think it is the most important piece to the Deathstroke costume so it is important to get it right. I managed to find the perfect mask that is almost identical or as close as your going to get. It has the two tone color that we need and the shape mimics that of a Deadpool costume mask. The eye is blocked off which I like as it adds more menace to the costume.
Black Padded Chest Plate Armor
For the upper body, the Deathstroke costume has a plated armor surrounding his chest, shoulders and arms. Without creating your own custom armor, you can go with a padded motorbike jacket. I think it is the best your going to get without going to the trouble of making your own. I think it looks good as it as shoulder pads built into the jacket and its black in colour. It is also a complete piece covering the chest shoulders and arms.
The Deathstroke mask we choose doesn’t have a enclosed back to it so a black balaclava will cover the head completely. The left open eye piece on the mask is quite big, the balaclava will cover the exposed eyebrow.
Black Tactical Combat Trousers
For the trousers, I went black tactical combat trousers as it is simple and clean with no branding on it.
For the Deathstroke costume boots, i went with black boots that go above the ankle. There are plenty of options to choose from when it comes to black boots as they are fairly common.
Knee And Shin Guards
For the knee and guards, I went for black off road motorbike knee and shin guards. These look really good. They secure to the leg via straps that wrap around the leg
Black Padded Gloves
The gloves I choose are paintball gloves. they look great with the other elements of the Deathstroke costume as they have protruding padding on the back of the hand.
Black Tactical Belt
The Deathstroke costume has a black tactical belt that has tactical pouches on either side. The belt I choose was a security belt as its black and it has the pouches built in. this will save us as we don’t have the buy the pouches separately.
Tactical leg holster
The Deathstroke costume leg holster I went for was a black tactical leg holster This straps onto your leg and is adjustable.
Black Wooden Sword
The sword I close was a black wooden training sword. I went with this one because it was black and because of detailed engraving looks good.
