Gear up and to get the look of Deadshot played by Will Smith in DC Comic’s latest movie Suicide Squad. Floyd Lawton, aka Deadshot, is the world’s deadliest and most accurate marksman. He is known adversary of Batman, but has also faced off against the Green Arrow in the CW’s series Arrow. Dress like the Man Who Never Misses with the Deadshot Lighted Mask, Compression Turtleneck Long Sleeve Shirt, Military Cargo Pant, EVS Sports REVO 4 Roost Guard, Condor Tactical Belt, UTG Elite Tactical Leg Holsters, Advanced Tactical Knee Pads, Magnum Response II Boot, Interstate Leather Fingerless Gloves, and Century hand forearm armor.
DC Comics strikes again! Fresh from the Suicide Squad we present Deadshot as a candidate for your next cosplay. This costume is accessory heavy and they aren’t pieces you can easily pick up in any store. Perfect for committed cosplayers, Deadshot’s outfit starts off easy enough with a red compression shirt and black cargo pants and boots. Then things get a little more complicated. Forearm gear and leg holsters are just the beginning. This cosplay also requires what looks like a laser tag vest, knee pads and of course the official latex Deadshot mask.
If you have a committed group of friends, the Suicide Squad has plenty of members to portray. The very popular Harley Quinn is among them. El Diablo, Enchantress, Captain Boomerang or Katana are all worthy characters to bring together come convention time. Make sure you check out our featured pics for more style options. Send in your own, we’d love to see what you come up with!
Customarily known as the archenemy of Batman in the comics, Deadshot has a sad backstory. Born with the name Floyd Lawton, he was raised by wealthy parents who were the most powerful couple in his town. The money did not make his home life happy. Deadshot was not a beloved child. That honor was reserved for his brother Eddie. Despite the difference in their treatment by others, Deadshot idolized his brother and would often stick up for him during any disputes with the town’s other children.
Though he never felt as though his mother cared for him, Deadshot was protective of her. Married to his abusive father, it was Deadshot’s decision to shoot him to end the abuse, that ended in tragedy. When his shot missed and he accidentally killed his beloved brother Eddie, Deadshot made it his life’s work to “never miss” again. Leaving behind his top hat and tails, Deadshot now only dons his trademark outfit and mask.
