View Full Version : Major Ocelot's medals/badges

08-27-2010, 09:10 PM
Right now because I don't really have a place to live (long story short, moved out and the place we wanted fell through) I can't really work-work on my cosplay, but I was hoping I could do some research.

I have been looking at the few HD recordings of gameplay from MGS3 on the internet, but even with the 720 resolution I can't seem to quite identify what all of his badges are!

I figured out that his larger rhombus-shaped badge is a Russian military badge - something called "Ryazan's Margeloff academy badge". Now, I know this is probably a modern badge, but I'm looking for SCREEN accuracy and not historical. Keeping that in mind, I know it's perfectly possible that Kojima said "screw history, Ocelot's gotta be a sharp-dressed man". Either way, Major ocelot has this TINY round circular badge that looks like a circle on top of a square?
(This is the video I used for reference: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=laOvzZfhb74 )
Does anyone have any idea what that is? Because I know I don't >.>

Also, someone told me that it's possible to get historical uniform patterns through museums - is this actually possible and has anyone done this before successfully?

Oh, those ribbons. Such a pain to try and see up close... Thank god for DeltaForce's videos. Speaking of which, I should try seeing if I can get a better shot of Raikov's..

Anyways... here's a shot of both.


Oh, and as for historial uniform patterns.. I'm not sure. I had to alter a suit pattern to make my Raikov uniform.

Hope that helps a little though.

Thanks! :D
I'll have to do a little more reserach but those shots are nice to have so I don't have to keep the video paused in a separate tab >.>

I have a rough Idea of what the medals are in terms of his service badges

but no idea where to get them from any help would be much appreciated

KDThompson made the ribbon racks for her friend's Ocelot costume. Posting to bump this thread so she sees it.
