I'm just wondering if anyone is cosplaying at your next convention as one of the characters from Metal Gear Solid (any series).

^^ I've done Solid Snake. It's on my website. I'm wearing him at A-Kon. For a girl, I think I did a damn good job, but alas, I lack ze' facial hair.

BTW, Mango. I love your avatar! <3 Willow.

I'm working on a uniform of one of the 'spetsnaz' soldiers from Metal Gear Solid 2. I have the correct camo, boots, and helmet; main thing I'm missing is the load bearing equipment (currently mix and matching spare equipment to get an approximation), and the facemask (did a shoddy modifying job to get something that kinda works). Oh, and a prop weapon, but that's not too important since the one I'm eyeing probably wouldn't be allowed at most places anyhow.

Still wating for a few remaining items to be shipped over to my house.

A month or two ago I saw a balaclava that made me go "Wow, that looks just like the one in MGS2," So I know it's out there. Probably should include "china silk" in your search.

Still waiting on the helmet (which hopefully should stop the shifting around of the balaclava) and the gloves, and need to make the big 'ol exclamation point (need to find some thin wires or something to hold it over my head). That's about it for this month or so. Eventually need to get the right belt and suspenders, but plenty of time for that later.

Yeah... I really want to see what that's about, too... The end of the E3 trailer was pretty interesting >_> ... Hehe.

I cosplayed as Meryl at ACen last year, but sadly I have no pictures of it at the moment, which is teh sad.

I *love* your Snake cosplay, Cherry... It's wonderful. Snake is probably one of my favorite characters ever and I think you did an amazing job with it!

I wouldn't mind cosplaying as Sniper Wolf one day... I wonder how many people would actually recognize that costume if I wore it to a con... ; P

Bleh, I must say it kind of bugs me how they Matrix-ized Metal Gear Solid with Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes. I mean, a little here and there would've been okay, but every single cutscene? And probably my favorite part of the MGS3 trailer was when Big Boss said to Ocelot, "You're not suited for an automatic anyhow. You tend to twist your elbow to absorb the recoil. That's more of a revolver technique." Now we know how he became known as Revolver.

Cherry
05-20-2004, 04:55 PM
Thank you, Mizuho and JacksUsername. xD I worked really hard on the costume. ::Cheer:: I don't know. Snake is my hero. He's such a sarcastic jerk. Not to mention, being in that costume makes you wanna roll around and stuff and shoot at people.

At A-Kon, I'm making a backpack full of accesories. xD I have dynamite, cigarettes, porn mags (Yes, that is actually an item in the game), magazines, ropes, medicine, etc. XD I shall take pictures sneeking up on Otaku.

Sniper wolf is so pretty. Though I think in MGS Twin Snakes someone seriously needs to consult her on that green lipstick.

IGN.com usually has a good collection of screenshots. I dug up most of my Gurlukovich soldier images off of there.

Took the liberty of digging up some images. You might find one or two useful:

And sorry, I'm not going to A-kon. Too bad, because as Jack said, your Snake costume's pretty darn cool looking. The vest is especially a nice job (the 'bulletproof' padding was definately a nice touch). If I'm not mistaken, those painful crotch-strap thingies you mention are supposed to be for rappeling. There's your random fact of the day.

Anyhow, got gloves:

Helmet should come in sometime next week. Also need to tape a flashlight or a laser unit to the AK prop, put up the red exclamation mark (finally found something to perhaps hold it in place.), and adjust the balaclava a bit (darn thing keeps shifting around on me). And these pull-on boots are terrible. And I think I've babbled long enough for one post.

What cons ARE you planning to go to? Maybe I'll be at one of them?

Thank you so much for the compliment. I really did do a lot on that costume.

I really enjoyed the padding, too. It gave it a little more life than what a flat vest would have. Thank you for clearing up the crotch straps. I was trying for a long time to figure out why Snake would have those, and eventually gave up figureing I didn't want to know.

Seeing as how I don't have the skill, nor does anyone in my family, to make a costume that looks even remotely like the Ninja, I think I'm gonna try for Plissken sometime. I have most of the stuff I would need already anyhow. Well, 'cept for the facial hair. Though I could just say I shaved. And that would actually work too, because you can get a shaver as Raiden and give it to Snake when you meet, and then later in the game when you see Snake again, he'll be clean-shaven.

I was planning to attend Fanime, but at the moment I'm having trouble with arranging transportation back and forth. My carpool decided two days ago that they're just going to stay at a hotel, leaving me without a ride. And I can't register for a hotel room since I'm only 16 and they require you to be 18 or over to check in. Bleh. I'll hopefully know for sure what the heck's going on by the 25th. At the very least, I'll get some pics with the helmet and a flashlight attached to the AKS74u prop (and the exclamation mark, which was scratched together last night), and I'll also at least have everything set for whenever I do manage to get out. Hopefully I can arrange something though.

Fisrt, let me help you out a little with the boots. You can head here for anything that the Russian Army uses, Russian Combat Gear (http://www.russiancombatgear.com/). If the paints are long enough, just tuck them into lace-up boot. Thats actully how I wear my BSA pants enstead of hemming them.

As for the charater, I would love to do Raven. But alas, I am planning to do Fatman from MGS2 for next year (hopfuly). I need to head out to the gym and train for the "Worlds Strongest Man Compation" before I even tried Raven :D .

Russian Combat Gear doesn't sell boots. The guy in charge feels he couldn't get good enough boots at a decent price, so he doesn't stock them. Redsoldier has boots, but they're a different variant. I eventually ordered mine from TridentMilitary. They've got a lot of hard to find stuff, but they're pricier. I ended up getting Soviet-era standard issue boots. The 'terrible' comment was because, well, in real life, any russian soldier who wants to be able to march comfortably ditches them for sneakers or something else, and now I see why. >.< Four days in these boots is not going to be fun. On the bright side, at least I got a ride and room arranged. Now all that's left is to, pick up my helmet from the post office.

Got my helmet. The prop weapon and the exclamation point are refusing to cooperate with me, so not sure what to do with them. Guess just bring them along and see what I can manage to do with duct tape. Hopefully can make some better stuff over the summer. Maybe something that requires a little more effort than store bought parts eh?

*walks up with two frames of animation, punches guard 3 times, then he disappears*

I'll probably end up using the boxart from the original as my reference work. My only concern is that not everyone would recognize the younger snake. He doesn't have a bandanna, so I'll have to use a FoxHOUND patch.

Way back when...Snake carried:
Cigs.
A box.
Beretta M92F
Ingram Mac11
Rations

And something like, 8 or 9 keycards.

BitterBeing
07-09-2004, 12:46 PM
You don't have to use the box-art as a referance. The "Pliskin" variation of Snake from MGS2 is actually the classic Snake outfit.

LancerFoxtrot07
07-09-2004, 01:37 PM
I'll stick with the art. Snake has shorter hair, a more streamlined headset, no facial hair...almost an entirely different person. It'll be less likely that I'll be mistaken for Iroquois Pliskin.

http://junkerhq.net/MetalGearScans/MGMSXEUR/Front.jpg

Granted that the box art has striking resemblance to a photo of Kyle Reese from the first Terminator flick...but hey, if that's what they used on the box art, I may aim at it.

im working on that myself where do i finf the mask and the helmet and the gun prop

Mask - This is a toughie. I just sewed up a one-hole balaclava to give the impression. It only looked good in one out of 6 pictures, but that balaclava wasn't very good in the first place. I've seen motorcycle balaclavas with 2 eye holes that work perfectly, but haven't seen any military ones for sale.

Helmet - They wear either a black Russian Tanker Helmet (not paratrooper, though it looks similar) or a black Sphera style helmet. The sphera helmet is a super rare oddity, but if you could probably rig one up using a modified football helmet or somesuch. Russian Tanker helmets crop up often at E-bay, where you can get them at a pretty good price (usually under $20). If you have a friend who visits russia, you could probably get one with night vision attachements (different from the ones in the game but still similar) for as low as $10. But e-bay would be your best bet. You can also try tridentmilitary.com . They've got a nice stock of stuff, but it's usually overpriced.

Gun prop, you could get a cheap airsoft springer or some toy AK for around $25. It's not accurate, but replicas of the AKS-74U are very hard to come by. Another option is to use a riot shield and pistol which I've seen th MGS2 spetsnaz using. Just having an AK should satisfy most people's photo-op itches though. Just as always, be careful carrying them in public.

Let me know if there's anything else you want to know. I've studied this uniform inside and out. :D

Yeah, I know. Those 2-hole facemasks are a pain in the but to find. The closest I can find is a motorcycle mask. There was this one Hellsing cosplayer I saw that had the perfect mask, but I wasn't able to buy it off him. Mine is actually just a one-hold balaclava sewn shut at the middle.

you know what would be cool if i could get a bunch of people to dress up as the same soldiers and follow the people that dress up like solid snake and communicate on radio

I would so totally do that, you have to let me know if you and anyone ever plan on doing that! O man thatd be so much fun, just get walkie talkies or headsets, and just like strategically move around together following random snake characters! Youd have to get someone to like mount a video camera on their shoulder so you can tape it as you follow them! haha thatd be great

Well anyways im planin to make a costume for halloween (and maybe future conventions and such) of big boss from mgs3. I was just wondering if anybody can help me out in finding out where i could get those tactical suspenders he wears w\ the pouches and such. any tips on how to make it er where i can purchase em' (for cheap) would be very helpfull. I saw one person here made a big boss outfit and it looked sweet! so any help would be very apreciated.

ummm go get any suspenders. safety pin pouches you can buy at any army surplus store (i got suspenders from store as well) get any type of woodland camo. then go to a fabric store and get a green fabric that would match the green on the camo. olive drab is the color of the green. then get forearm sleeves from a sportsmart. black gloves.boots.prop toys from a china town. make sure you have a decent toy knife and a 45. pistol. he didnt have a leg holster but it looks good on big boss (snake) www.airsplat.com for good stuff!
paint from any halloween shop.and a i actually had a working throat mic when i cosplayed as big boss. its called "firefox throat mic" off ebay for like $30 it was sweet. and you might be able to find gernades at china town also.
and ummmmm look me up username : LONER and see how i put them together.

airsoft doesnt make a good prop at all.....cops see it then your lucked out. at cons airsofts a big no no. so i suggest going to a toy store and get a toy gun there that shoots plastic yellow bullets, its like a dollar or so for one. china town is the cheapest or a flea market. i had run ins with cops before. ask anyone that went to JTAF2 we had like 6 cops surrounding us....and fanime 04' sucked cuz no airsoft whatsoever. so play it safe dude dont risk losing your airsoft. speaking of airsoft i have a TM M4A1, classic army MP5A5, a deagle full blowback, 2 full metal berretas,a sig, and a .45 hahah i pwned in games!

Its better if you don't use a gun at all...
Just use the hip holster. Its what I'm going to do because security at Sakuracon wont allow me to wave a prop like that around. AND you have less chance getting in trouble with the cops because your unarmed.

LOL! No no, her Hair is Blonde. She just has green lipstick (at least, in the Twin Snakes Version of the game...)

In my opinion, Twin Snakes is totally Nerfed up compared to the original PSone classic. (Vintage 1998)

Anyhoo, I'll be going to AX this year as "Naked Snake" (sorry, no REAL nakeyness. That's just a code name) :p

No no, her hair was blonde in the PS version. It's just becuase of the pixelation, and the horrible rendering of hair on the ol' 32 bit console. But hey, what can you do? it was the limits of the time.

Well, at E3 '03 konami's press kit had a paper craft metal gear REX in it, and I was lucky enough to pick up two of them. I've already built one, but I was hoping to scan the images of the other one today at my school's vcom lab. The dimensions of the thing are spot on to the twins snakes REX, so I figure I just need to scale it up abot a hundred times. I figure we'll need at least four pupetteers, one for each leg, one for the body, and one for the head. Ihave this all thought out, I just need to draw up some "blueprints." (lol) The only things I'm really worried about is the weight and the strength of card board. I also need to do some alterations to my vest and I need to work out, these string bean arms aren't cuttin it. (lol again) I'm still trying to convince my friend to go as vulcan raven, and my girlfriend just will not go as meryl. dang.

here's so more rex images.

the sheath you can get at your local chinatown shops that have swords n stuff. the socom mk22 you cant find because i doubt they make toy versions of it....but.................. i bought the namco guncon2 off ebay the japanese version its black as well. thats modeled after a socom mk22 with lam unit like solid snake has! and it should pass security. gotta find a way to hide the cord though you wouldnt wanna destroy that. or go to a gamestop and buy a used one and paint it that should work.

What would be a good headset to use for MGS3 Snake's headgear? It seems like you'd need something pretty heavy duty, as the wires seem pretty thick.

ANy good good suggestions for headset brands?

EDIT: oh, the Kojima Signing pics are up on Konami's site. I'm in the middle right picture in my Snake costume. (Unfortunatley, it didn't look that great at the moment...plus they blurred my face. Arg)

Whoo yay for Metal Gear cosplay.

I went as Otacon to Otakon '04, and for Anime Boston '05 (and possibly Otakon '05) I'm going to be going as MGS3 Ocelot. I'm a girl, but I love those chars and there costumes.

My Ocelot costume is about 35% done. I have the pants, the jacket (although I still have to add some stuff onto it), and the hat (it isn't perfect but it's good enough). I found decent toy guns, now I'm just having some trouble finding holsters to go with it. That, and an ammo belt. Then I have to buy spurs somewhere...hoo boy, this ought to be fun.

I'm going with my school's anime club to AB'05, and a bunch of us are going to be doing MG chars. So far we have young Ocelot, old Ocelot, Naked Snake, Otacon (I'm giving my costume to a friend), Emma, Raikov, the box... XD

the suspenders i got from a surplus store it was $20 and i safety pinned a couple of stuff to it. i had to it was very last min. otherwise for fanime 05' i will have better stuff on it. i realized in my pics you cant see my throat mic. so check out: hadokn gallery he has some of our pics in there from jtaf 2. and the throat mic you linked on ebay was kinda good but its shipping from hong kong and thats a tough one there. so becarful where its coming from.
the firefox throat mic seem to be better and it took about a week to ship.

I'm not sure if they make "Mullet" wigs, unfortunatley. Though, if you did a female version of Snake, I'm sure it would come out really awesome with the long hair, actually. :cool:

Hey, I'm planning on cosplaying EVA, and I had a few questions!

1. Is her suit tan or standard issue green? It looks different colours in different pics and lighting. :untrust:
2. For her suit, do you think I could get away with modifying those zip-up suits that Airborne wears?
3. Aaanndd...are her boots one colour, or are they those black and green boots? Again, the lighting throws me off. :/

There's a reclamation sale coming up this week, so I should be able to find this stuff for cheap. Oh yes oh yes. :D

EDIT: Her boots ARE the black/green boots (as seen in attached picture). I still don't know about the colour of her suit, tho. It looks tan in this picture, but I bought the limited edition. guide, and her suits looks green in there. x_x

1. yeah, Her suit is Tan. DOn't worry about the artbook. That stuff is just conceptual. Go with in game content (AKA her suit is tan)

You won't beleive how easy it was to find all that stuff at my local Army Navy surplus store....expensive as hell, though. Military BDU's cost about $38 dollars for each piece (shirt, and pants)....but compared to other cosplay, this costume was pretty cheap to put together.

I also found a Dress uniform like "Snake" was wearing at the end of MGS3. It was only $50 for the jacket and dress pants. $5 for the beret, $10 for the cream dress shirt....Can't find a tie though. I didn't buy it, since I don't have anymore cash right now, but my birthday is coming up, so cash will be ready by then.

While we're on the topic, I'd like to ask a question about a psycho mantis costume possibility. I'm going to buy a gas mask anyway because I have a ...well... 'thing' for them (shush! :rolleyes: ), but there appear to be no actual gas masks that meet the specifications of his. So here's the dillemma:

I don't want to use the Canadian M-69 because its round eye holes do not fit the psycho mantis..sinister feel. (note: These are surplus prices) I'm torn between modifying a 25 dollar M-17 Police turn-in, or buying an uber expensive M95 (which is 299 dollars!). If you don't know what they look like, there's always good old Google Image Search. Just about every other gas mask in the surplus market at this moment do not meet the specifications either with round eyeholes, or a lack of filter placement specs.

The M17 itself has inside cheek filters, so that would take just buying some filters (which can cost a pretty penny) and keeping them on the side for cosmetic purposes.

Suggestions?

Alright long rambling... you can tell I like my subject mater a bit ;) :drink:

You could try http://www.imsplus.com/ims27.html if you can't find anything at a local surplus store. It seems to be a different from the game one though.

Pieces of her equipment that I think I do recognize are russian motorcycle goggles, an older style web belt, green nomex flight gloves, and green combat boots.

======

For the psycho mantis gas mask, the M17 doesn't look like a good match at all. Way too bulky.

http://www.specwargear.com/images/gasmask-M17-1.jpg

Though I guess you could do a lot of mod work on it. 0o

I ran across this, might be of interest to you. Still not a perfect match though << They do have the filter on the front, but the eyes aren't correct.

guys, i have been searching for a while, but i can't find a good back shoot of the boss... i have one but it gets only at the waist... i have to see the trailers againg if i could find something...

i found a nice bodice pattern... i have to modify it...

I can try to get a pic of Snake's sneaking suit. In the game he gets a black version of The Boss's white one. They're identical except for color.

Grrrr, parentals have the digital camera and are out of town, so I won't have a pic for a while.

If nobody else can get it, I could sketch the suit and scan it for you.

he said it would be his final metal gear game that he directs and writes, whether or not its the last mgs (which i doubt since its a huge cash cow for konami) it will most likely be the last one that kojima makes

He also said that about MGS2. So while its entirely possible that he means it this time, I doubt he'd stand-by and watch his favorite franchise get shamed by Konami. Odds are, he'd be helping in some-way (probably producing like Twin Snakes).

Konami already says that MGS4 is in the works.

i read in an interview that he's currently working on mgs online, i dont know how thats going to work but hey im not complaing, in the same interview he said that if no one takes up the challenge that he will have to do it(mgs4) . thats true about mgs2 that was his "last" game but there he was 2 years later with mgs3! and there has been rumors that he might direct or codirect the MGS movie but if they cant do it right they shouldnt do it at all, id rather them not ruin it for the fans!

there's no good relationship between videogames and movies... but MGS reminds me of enemy at the gates, which is awesome... mmm i also read somewhere that MGS4 will have new, younger staff...

oh, and MGS online? i cant imagine it...

so long as a metal gear movie isn't westernized, i'd be really happy to see one. I think David Hayter would make a great solid snake if he started working out. I'd cry me eyes out if they pull some resident evil crap. like, does jill even smoke? and nobody EVER talks about ammo conservation OR needing keys or anything. worst parts is, they still have my 18 dollars.

gogoedward
01-19-2005, 08:40 PM
18 dollars? where do you see movies at? and how exactly do you expect ammo conservation and key collecting to work in a big budget action movie? seriously the movie was ok for an action movie, it may not have followed the residetn eil games exactly, but thats a good thing, i mean i dont wanna watch people collecting keys, walking aorund pre rendered backgrounds and shooting things you cant even see yet, i wanna see some shoot em up action

anyway, the onyl redeeming quality i found was in oded fehr as carlos ( i actually carlos! bum bum bum!) and it was good for a video game movie, one of the better ones, god remember street fighter, yuck! (didnt even have good fight scenes wtf)

and a metal gear movie would rock since th egame has a cinematic feel already, as long as hideo kojimaDIRECTS, no co-directing, im talking DIRECTING!!!!!!!!!!!

however i dont think a metal gear movie would work, i mean the great stories are told over several hours (like 15 in 3, about 8 in 2,) and unless they made like a trilogy or somethin which i doubt, a mgs story in a movie would seem compressed and probably wouldnt work

anyway, yeah, also has nayone seen a finished eva costume? im so stuk righ tnow

nobody ever said it HAD to be about cosplaying, MGS stands for METAL GEAR SOLID which is the topic of the forums. I was part of that resident evil forum and they really went off topic like what im doing now... The problem with kojima directing is that he has never done a movie before and it might be a little too much for him. David hayter which was the voice of solid snake and naked snake was in this really cool movie The Guyver 2!! If you want to watch similar MGS movies watch the Rambo trilogy especially first blood, kojima san used them as reference guides as well!

guys talk about metal gear COSPLAY before someone gets mad again.....

next time i COSPLAY snake (big boss) im going to bring a frog with me and a rubber snake!!! i have to redo my headband though before i can COSPLAY snake again so it can look better. maybe a sweatband for the head then sew the gray material to it and maybe add a wire to the long parts so i can make it look like its flowing in the wind. lol

sorry if this is off topic, but...

18 dollars for the two movies, and they shouldn't be action movies, they should be horror movies. Devil may cry = action. Resident Evil = Survival Horror. All I'm asking for is a decent story, which is honestly something that Paul WS Anderson (read = The Devil) just can't come up with, a green herb in the background, somebody runs out of ammo, maybe ONE puzzle? oh, and no FLO MO! It's such a joke now!

anyway, i'm thinking of doing Krauser from RE4, cus he's just so tough. get some cool scar makeup an a big honkin' knife. It'd be great.

Hmmm, any suggestions for the knee/elbow pads and for making a faux rapelling harness for an MGS2 Snake costume?

As far as I can tell, there isn't a leg-harness of that design available anywhere, so I'm thinking about constructing my own, maybe using some sort of drop-pouches sans pouch to get the look.

I'm kinda lost on the knee and elbow pads though, somewhat strange design.

I have an odd question...does anyone know a good place to stick con badges?

You know, the convention badges you have to wear to go around the con. Anyone have a good idea where to put them on our MGS costumes so they don't interfere with out costumes much?

On the belts? On our Backs?

Any way you look at it, Those con badges look really fugly on your costumes pics.

Hey everyone!
I was thinking about doing a Sniper Wolf costume, but after hearing you guys going on about MGS, now I know for sure! Question though, in all the ref pics of her, her hair is different colors. I haven't played the game all the way through yet, so I don't know for sure. Is it white, blonde, or green?!


IT blonde and you need a H&K PSG-1

Dude, if I sound lost, don't blame me cause I'm a n00b. Anyways, I was wondering if anyone is going to come as Snake...er...Big Boss at Anime Expo 2005? Last year, I met up with I think 2-3 Solid Snakes and they were really good ones too. But dammit! I need scissors! 61! I forgot to take their pictures, baka me! :waaaah: I even got hit in the face with a gun by a "spetznaz" soldier when I went for a hug. That was my fondest memory. Oh, and if anyone is coming as Raiden or any other characters from MGS :heart: please alert me! XD


I came as Raiden to AX04 on saturday you should check your e-mail i send a photo. you coming to ax05 maybe your get lucky and have a camera and not get hit by the Stock of gun where you go for a hug from a spetznaz soldier.

Black underarmour should do nicely. It has a sheen to it that makes it appear different from spandex.

underarmour??? for me, it's more like a neoprene diving suit :thumbsup: ... it look too dense to be spandex... looking at the medicom snake figure, it seems that it's neoprene...

whats neoprene and how cna i mimick this in costume form?

kabuki_ikenie
02-03-2005, 08:14 AM
neoprene its a substance that it's used from adhesives to textiles, mainly because its aislative capacity... diving suits (or wet suits) used by scuba divers or by water sport ethusiasts (like this: http://www.onlinescubalessons.com/store/7008.html) are made of neoprene, but sometimes they're made of other materials (even lycra)...

sugestions? http://www.onlinescubalessons.com/store/ap140.html i have seen this things at some stores... they're made of lycra, but they look just like a wet suit... and probably they're more comfortable than using a wet suit under your costume... and it'll be more easy to modify (since the neoprene is to thick for normal sewing machines)

loner
02-03-2005, 02:45 PM
it is a good material, even just getting the top half of a diving suit/ surfing suit. but like most cosplayers they are broke and want to find a decent alternate method. most money is spent on going to the cons and hotels lol. those suits can tend to get really really expensive and if you can buy a used one (no thanks) you still have to make sure its somewhat skin tight.

The Solid Snake
02-03-2005, 04:25 PM
ya not to mention that wearing one of those would get really hot when going around a convention all day.

Has anyone ever brought a riot shield to go along with a Metal Gear Solid Sons of Liberty costume? I am really thinking about doing this, altho i dont know how well the shield will fit in my luggage... so i might have to cut it down a bit. I noticed that the Spetsnaz troopers have lights fitted in the sheilds. Probbaly could also use it for a RE costume as well, just put some blood and stuff on it.

Im not too sure on doing this costume because i hear the camo pattern is hard to come by and the places that do sell it are rather expensive. I do like russian tanker helmets tho... now those look comfy. :)
