I would love to make a Pyro costume, but I don't know the items I would need.
 I would also like to find someone who sells TF2 costumes, but so far I haven't seen anyone who has.
Could you help me out? Like, tell me what you would need to make one or someone who makes Pyro costumes and sells them?
That would be extremely helpful. Or would you be willing to sell your outfit? I will pay any price even in the 100 $ for one Thanks~

The only place I'm aware of that sells Pyro costumes is on eBay (… but they're only a partial outfit and not accurate.
Doing a Google image search on Pyro should give you an idea of what the standard loadout is in order to know what you have to have for the cosplay.
The hardest thing is the weapons. My partner was the one who made them, and he spent a lot of time in GMod, Maya and Photoshop to create blueprints for the weapons which are scaled to my height so they look as close to in-proportion when the ensemble is together. Then he spent a long time building them. It's possible you could find a prop builder who does stuff for cosplayers, but you might have to pay a lot because often these things are custom built and/or made to order. There are some, like Zprops ( who have resin kits for certain weapons, but I think only the shotgun is relevant to the Pyro.
The suit was handmade. It was pretty much my first costume that I made, but I did make a trial version in calico first, since it was a combination of two patterns. I won't be selling the suit any time soon, I'm afraid. I have longterm plans to re-do the suit, but can't say when. And if I did sell it, it'd just be the red part; no straps or anything else, so probably not of much help!
I'd have to say that Pyro is the probably the hardest of the 9 classes to cosplay. Having your body covered entirely, and in my case in material that doesn't breathe, is quite exhausting!

Wow, thanks! I didn't suspect you to put such a detailed response, but thank you so much! ^^ This helps so much!! I'm glad you responded, thanks bro!!
