BDUs from defection scene

Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater

Last Updated: 10-15-2010

A couple of these pictures are from Naka-Kon, when I wore the costume minus a couple of details. There are still some things to work out before I'll be completely happy with it, such as adjusting the harness a bit. Otherwise, it's done!

Now on to the sneaking suit for Costume-Con!

Details on making the costume:
I ended up making my own BDUs because I wanted to get some of the details exact, including the number of pockets on the front. The harness was homemade based on the action figure of Naked Snake. The gear was all bought but is mostly accurate. I've found the right walkie-talkie pouch (a British ammo pouch), and I'll be replacing my South African ammo pouch with that soon. Gloves are homemade. Boots need replaced. At some point, I'm going to remake the entire compression shirt now that I've gotten some high-res stills of Snake at the end of MGS3 for reference.

Great costume for wearing as a con chair. I could be on radio with an earwig, and it actually looked right. That's why you'll see some pictures where I'm wearing the coiled cable instead of the straight one up to my ear. I'm actually on radio!
