I had a question for those who are planning or may have already done MGS3 cosplay. I have a heavily modified Airsoft M1911A1 (which doesn't fire at all) and my friend who is cosplaying Ocelot has two SAA revolver non-firing replicas (the full weight is important because he spins them). In addition to some homemade wooden knives, we were concerned that con-ops at Anime Expo might give us a lot of grief.
I plan on orange-capping the weapons, but did anyone else meet with trouble at cons? I just want to know what I can expect and if I should have back-ups prepared in case they don't let us bring them on the con floor.

Guessing you never manged to get ahold of any ALICE clips? =/ Because I'm sure those would take care of it.

You could try getting them off E-Bay

E-Bay Search 'ALICE Clips'

Unlikely they'll let u in, my buddy had 2 use capguns cause they wouldnt elt him in with his airsoft pistols.

Also wood knifes can still be dangerous, i dont know waht con ur goign 2 but the one im going 2 i can only get in with rubber knifes and plastic guns which sucks

I hate to spill the beans on this, but those belts I have are gun slings. I basically hooked them to the belt loops, and tightened them the best I could.

I'l admit, it was a rush job. I needed to get the outfite at least 90% done for the hideo Kojima signing. I'm hoping to get the suspenders looking/feeling better on me soon. The suspenders kept slipping down my shoulders. it was really annoying. I'll have that fixed soon, hopefully.

I've been looking at Snake in the MGS3 viewer, and I've come to a conclusion.

I was WRONG about him wearing any sort of load bearing harness or suspenders.

He's actually just wearing a pistol belt with various packs attached. OVER that, is a very simplistic parachute harness, and onto that his radio and knife are strapped. Theoretically, his pack should fall down around his ankles, maybe its hooked into the harness somehow. Artistic license methinks.

Now... does anyone know how to sew nylon?

ahhh, i built my own harness.

Sewing nylon? I just sewed like u would sew anything else, stich aroudn the same area twice so its more secure.

By the way snake is wearing a Web belt with a parachut harness, what do you mean by pistol belt? im pretty sure its a webbelt with suspendors

There aren't any suspenders.

Pistol Belt = Web Belt.

The Parachute harness is what everyone is mistaking as the suspenders.

The red is his belt, which runs under the harness.
The Blue is the parachute harness.
the yellow are the metal bits, lol. The top ones adjust the fit, the bottom ones near his crotch are military-style hooked into a ring.

But, like I said, the way we're all doing it with the suspenders makes more sense for cosplay reasons. For the person who wants an exact costume however, they'd have to fabricate a custome parachute harness.

the way u have it layed out is exactly how i built (or webbelt + parachute harness, whatever u wanna call it) my harness so no problems there.

I'm back!!!! Dang country rained on us the whole trip home. Got back safely anyways, and I get to go on leave next friday -heading out hawaii ways- and see my family. All in all: Life is Good!

And catching up whats been said here: I do beleive I mentioned several times that its a crew harness not suspenders, and its a just a web/pistol belt with pouches. I've got the pic ready, so I'll put it up here in a bit. Now if the belt is falling off your butt, tighten it down. If its as tight as it goes, then sorry: ya got lizard hips like me and your SOL. I'd have to look at my belt to remember how to adjust it, and I don't get my stuf till tommorrow, so I'll post that then. As to hooking gear to straps/harness/webbing: green duct tape. Its what we use, along with zip ties (cable ties is what I think they are also called) to secure and tape to make sure. On the butt pack, Snake, take a pic of the area thats against your back and the top and send it to me, and I'll touch it up to show you what to do with the tape/ties to get it working. Dragoon, yours so far looks the best, but as soon as I get my stuff, I'm gonna give you a run for your money.
