Fact:  Costuming and reenacting is not a poor man's game. 

That, my friend, is correct.

It is very expensive when it come to German reenacting. I chose Deutsches AfrikaKorps because no one in this area does it, and a bunch of my chums do British (which fought the DAK). The picture shows all of my current gear (except for my helmet and rifle), as the equipment is expensive. Most people tend to steer clear of SS, unless they are "real" Nazis. And by far the most expensive German kit is the Fallshirmjager (paratrooper).

The History Bunker is a great place.

This is the largest forum for reenactors, and also contains all suppliers in the US. You may want to check the links for boots and such:

http://ww2reenactors.proboards.com/index.cgi

Oh, and I bought my uniform from 1944 Newsletter; Luke has the best prices I have seen; I bought my entire uniform (pants, shirt, tunic, hat, and all insignia) for a little over $250. ;)

Hope this helps. :)

A friend of mine is into  Reenacting  WW2    but  makes also  semi-profesional videos  with it  http://www.youtube.com/user/UrlagEntertainments

He knows that  buying  Repro-uniforms  is  too expensive   so  he  make  most  thins himself

The Tunics for example  are mostly  Jackets of the former GDR  but  with some cuts and stiches.  The Effects and Rankbars are mostly made out of cloth and hotglue    or   casted copys  of  original  Effects.  Guns are Woodbuilds  And the rest is Garbage found on Garage Sale.

So in this way he wont spent 600 or 800 Dollars for one complete Gear      morethan 100$  is     unlikely

The riding boots were worn by the olive-khaki-uniformed officers, like Tarkin and Piett and Veers. The jackboots were West German Border Guard (Bundeswehr) boots of the 1960s/'70s style and they were only worn by the black-uniformed Stormtrooper officers. Here are mine, thanks to Tomoe (who I still need to repay for shipping costs >_> ).

Got it, thank you!

That is pretty neat Jaro. I wish I hadn't have payed hundreds of dollars on uniforms I rarely wear.  :D

Hint: Scaring your neighbors by pretending to be a Nazi soldier is probably not a good idea.  They will misunderstand, think you're serious, and then you'll be 'that wierdo Nazi kid' forever.

In context-- like WW2 reenacting-- it's perfectly fine.  but wearing that kind of stuff around the town...  well, not so much.  :P

Even here in Florida we constantly get thanked for our service (when we leave the hotel room or are en route to an event), even when I am in my German uniform.  People these days...  :rolleyes:

Even the old people ask me if I am in "the service" and if I have gone to Afghanistan.  :D

AFAIK the digital camo  is no pattern because  its  made  randomly.    There exist camera's which can  spot out unatural colors (like black)  and  Pattern    (but face it... you will never have the problem with  an enemy whos actually using this tech in the next 50 jears )

The digital camo  is more focused  on  tricking your eye  more than  an  round and pattern   Camo  can do.
