    A sewing machine, several different black fabrics, and a specific design. Fortunately, this time of year you can finds lots of patterns to use as a base.
    Maybe get some army-surplus belts & ammo pouches.

    Oh, and boots. Seriously, the right boots can make/break a costume.

    Fortunately, there are lots of options this time of year...

    I guess... Look a little silver-heavy. Probablly could be modified easily enough.

    I don't think painting silver boots black is a good idea. Better to start out with boots that are already black.

    Check out motocross boots, there are some interesting designs out there.

    I looked at buying those for my costume!
    They should look pretty good.
