Can I just say what a great job everyone's been doing on the Big Boss/Naked Snake/Punished Snake/dudejustpickacodenameandstickwithit cosplays? You gentlemen all look awesome!
I feel like contributing, so here's a teaser shot of my EVA. Please excuse the crap quality of my webcam and also the fact that I don't have any makeup on. D:
I originally did this costume about 2 years ago, and at that time I was in this phase of soaking a lot of information and a lot of my learning process for costuming involved trial and error. Now that my eye for design has improved, I wanted to revisit this costume because MGS holds so much sentimental value for me and it is my favourite game series, even if I do admittedly suck at playing them. Compared to the first time I wore this costume, I have a way better wig, more accurate accessories, and I tailored my coveralls and bikini to fit me better.
Some fun trivia about the costume while I'm having word vomit: my coveralls are actually Canadian military from 1982, according to some labels that were inside of it. I found it in a vintage store in Toronto.
I'm wearing it out to a Halloween party next weekend. Some friends of mine have been talking about going out of town to a provincial park to do photos in the woods, so hopefully that pans out and I'll get more photos soon.
