repurposedCLOTHING.  "Damon, I took my staff out for an evening of fun in orchard country just outside Detroit. Many apple orchard places hold hay rides, pumpkin patch - u/pick, cider/donuts and Corn Maze activities.  I have to tell you Zombies dressed in Firemens' suit are fun to shoot with paintball guns.  The suit did cover their $250 protective padded suit that was under the firemen's outfit." - Tony Eckrich  RE: Tony, using old bunker gear at a paint course sounds like a great "repurpose" for decommissioned fire gear.
