Rubber Drone

I recently completed my rubber drone ensemble which I’ve had a few questions about, so I’ll do my best to answer them. Base suit is from STR, feet, hands and from Blackstyle.

The S10 is a hard-to-find dual intake version. The standard version only has a port on the wearer’s left hand side, but some with intakes on both side were made, apparently for heavily contaminated environments or maybe simply to accommodate left-handed shooters. You can find them (and the not-so-nice in my opinion, FM12) on ebay – I spent £70, which did come with canisters and haversak, and the same amount again with Regulation* to fit a hood. Still comes in under a regular one, so I’m happy! I swapped out the lenses for mirrored polycarbonate I bought on eBay for £12. Hoses are standard NATO black ones, but I think I might get shorter ones.

The backpack is from Fetishak, who I’d not used before, but I found their great rubber breathing bag somewhere. I’d been lusting after the smell bag from Rubbers Finest for a long time, but I actually think the Fetishak version looks much better, and it’s way cheaper! It’s a shame they don’t do them in more colours (red and black only) but actually I’m very happy with the all black one. The bag has a zipper (so you can still breathe) but you can drop in a sponge of your favourite odour or just enjoy the amazing rubber smell.

Anyway, hope this helps someone recreate the look, enjoy the pictures and sorry about the silicone on the lens :)
