i wish I could be of more assistance (production-wise), but most of the berzerker's costume is easily obtainable or made by a specialist. I'm more aligned to making pieces that can't be purchased or can't even be found. For example, most of the MFP uniform was either handmade, etremely rare, or unidentifiable. The RW costume is a little more doable but it takes knowledge of the original pieces, ability to aquire them, and talent to "modify" them into an accurate piece. Now for something that's more my speed, did you say you had a car and you need one of those dartguns? If so, I could definitely do that. The main body would be a piece of cake, just pipe and four empty air canisters completely painted black. I'd have to watch the footage again but the stand shouldn't be too difficult and a connection to a store-bought refillabe compressed-air tank would be entirely possible. If you're interested I can get some pictures compiled and get the materials thought up. Have the tank filled and ready in the trunk attached to a hose routed throught the pipes and a simple trigger mounted on the floor. I can make up some plastic arrows and you can pour a little talc powder into each tube for effect. That's probably what the FX guys did to get the "burst". Just say the word and I get movin'. A project like this really brings out the best in people. I forgot to say in the first post that I looked on ebay and found three cafe' racer jackets that will work well as a base. Their item numbers are: 944373767, 944219610, and 944425161. They are all around a size 40 so I can keep looking if you are bigger/smaller.

I just want to add a comment to Punisher's post about the Gayboy Berserker helmet. I used a US$1.99 can of silver spray paint on my helmet and it turned out perfect - it looks just like the movie.

Just a note to your note: You have to be kind of careful about putting the can too close to the surface, hold it aboput ten to twelve inches away and move it quickly to make sure you don't have any runs. If you have even a tiny little drip the project will look cheezy. Be Careful!
