MGS1 Snake Help

I'm trying to make a Solid Snake Cosplay from MGS1 or Twin Snakes but I need to either buy or make a Vest like the one the character wears, and that exactly is my problem.
I don't know how to make the vest or were to buy something that looks like it so I was wandering if someone knew around here since I couldn't find another thread relating this.

His vest always seemed like a modified version of a Navy flak vest. probably not the best bit of advice, but it's a starting point.

First thing you REALLY need to do is get bigger reference pictures. Also, did you search the main Metal Gear Thread? It has many pieces of advice that would prooobably include your costume.

7. Rappelling Gloves $17.50

That's a nice list you have there, but wouldn't this color flightsuit work better?

I've been looking at Snakes game models and pictures and I've seen mostly grey for the suit, but black/navy for everything else. I'm no a stickler for 100% accuracy, but it's just something I noticed XD

If you want better screenshots to work from, check out ones from The Twin Snakes (mgs1 gamecube remake). It's faithful to the orignal designs, but much better resolutions and more detail, like this: http://cubemedia.gamespy.com/cube/im...420545-000.jpg

The concept art for Snake, although lacking in detail, makes for good reference points for overall outfit: http://images.wikia.com/metalgear/im...olid-snake.jpg

Also, of course, his magical vest that somehow allows his muscles to show through

If you're curious, the straps on his legs are most likely something like this:

Actually, that's his MGS2 harness. MGS1 looks a little different, annoyingly... >

oh, and this is the thigh holster you want: http://www.cobraairsoft.com/product_...roducts_id=592
