Authentic Deathstroke Suit: DIY Cosplay Guide
Deathstroke, the alter ego of Korean War veteran Slade Joseph Wilson, is a genetically enhanced super soldier who went on to form a prolific career as a mercenary and persistent thorn in the side of several heroes in the DC Comics Universe – including the Teen Titans, Nightwing and Batman.
Deathstroke wears a distinctive orange and black getup comprised of tactical gear and a protective mask which protects his missing eye which he lost when his wife attacked him. But she had good reason… He almost got their son killed because of his criminal escapades.
Although he has enhanced capabilities because of an experimental serum administered to him in the military, Deathstroke’s body armor, tactical gear and collection of katanas, guns and staffs give him an edge when he’s going toe to toe with superheroes.
His armor is made of a mesh-woven kevlar and chainlink mail which protects him from small arms fire. See below to learn how to put together a DIY Deathstroke costume.
