Mainly, I have no idea about that STABO harness. More than likely I think I might want to commission it so if anyone wants to...?

Or suggestions for the PTT codec?

and black sleeves?

Much question.

these are the ones i purchased, they're pretty cheap and good quality, i bought the Asian tiger stripe.

Also would anyone know what I could use to secure the knife holster on snakes leg? I was gonna use hockey tape but i heard it left bad sticky residue. Velcro? anything else? Thanks!

Check at a surplus store, they might have something along the lines of what you're looking for.
Myself, I just used two pieces of a military trouser belt to secure it to my leg.

As for the pants,I knew where to get them. Online, or the local surplus store always has a lot of the Asian tiger stripe pattern.

My friend and I are working on our MGS group for next year.

Though I'm doing Snake from MGS2 which I pretty much have down how I'll be doing it. My friend on the other hand wants to do MGR Raiden. Does any one have any tips for her on how to do this? I made minor armor so I'm not sure how I'm going to go about helping her since this is her first cosplay ever... and boy did she pick a dozy.

Not sure if any of ou remember me from a few years back, but I redid my Ocelot and it's waaaay better. Even got an award for it at CTCon, 2nd place novice division. Not best in show or anything, but it's nice to know I'm good enough to get stuff

Question for you metal gear heads. Currently designing and prototyping Raiden from Metal Gear Rising. I was curious to know where people get the upper half of his body armor. In the image I grabbed off the internet, its the brown part. Is this a custom made part from eva foam, or is there a particular place you can order this from? Thanks in advance.

It's hard to tell, this might be a custom airbrush job the person did underneather the suit. However, I know that there have been several RAiden cosplayers using a latex premade part for raiden's under armor. The one I know of in particular is Dragonblade cosplay, her has a FB page. I'm sure he would be more than happy to direct you to the supplier C;

Anyone know if I could safely dye the pouch to the left an Olive Drab color to match the real Vietnam Pouch on the right? If so any tips? Thanks!
The pouch to the left is my makeshift Radio Pouch Naked Snake uses and I want it to match the rest of my gear color wise. It's a German Uzi Pouch and in my opinion it's the best match to Snake's Radio Pouch.

What's that made of? It looks amazing! From the pictures I'm guessing either some kind of thin plastic or a sturdy paper/posterboard riveted onto a glove and painted to be all smooth and shiny?

Soooooooooooooo.... due to the wonderful world of windows crashing and all that awesome goodness, my old account Technowraith has been reformatted into SamuraiRAIDEN because I'm running with ancient 16MB Ems and 32MB Xms and can't remember my old password for peanuts. I'll have to look into this and see. Raiden is still in progress. I might get him done by otakon this year.

Anyway gearheads, see you out there.

MSG 2 Solid Snake Writeup

Hi everyone, Im working on Solid Snake from MGS2 specifically the sneaking suit. After about three hours of internet shopping, I think ive found almost everything accessory wise and makeup wise for him so I thought Id make a thread about it.

Ok so like most videogame costumes, basic alterations are going to be needed to make the costume completely accurate. Please keep that in mind, Ive found most of the base equipment, but its not completely perfect.
Anyway, lets begin!

So for the main strapping, the shoulder harness is: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B001AT4Z1U...1FT6HZ IPT6MH

The straps around his legs is a Rappelling harness, but honestly i'm just going to make my own I couldn't find any that matched perfectly. The best place for webbed nylon is: http://www.strapworks.com/default.asp

The pouches are Here: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B004BIRQ0Y...1FT6HZI PT6MH

Here: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00488O1UA...1FT6HZI PT6MH

And Here: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00HFBSFKY...1FT6HZ IPT6MH

The pistol holster is a Drop Holster, you can buy one Here: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0713SDHDK...1FT6HZ IPT6MH

Any combat boots will work for this.

For the arm bands and knee pads, Im making them out of neoprene fabric that I'm going to dye to the right color.

To alter the chest straps im using this fabric: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00I80KU7C...1FT6HZI PT6MH

For the undersuit, Im going to draw up a custom Zentai Suit pattern and have it printed and sewn up.

For the gun a cheap airsoft pistol will work

Now for the makeup and wig.

The wig im going to use is: https://www.arda-wigs.com/collection...nt=27836961158 In Spanish Brown

For the Beard im using Crepe hair.

And thats about it! If you have any questions please let me know!
