While the exact make and model of sunglasses that the T-800 Terminator does change from movie to movie there is no hard and fast rule when it comes to choosing the correct pair. You do not even have to buy a branded pair of sunglasses.

The Terminator Gun

For this part of the costume we would obviously not recommend using a real shotgun.

Instead we would recommend using either a reasonably realistic toy gun or even an airsoft gun. All of which can be bought quite cheaply and add that final finishing touch to your costume.
