2"Wx3"Lx3/4"H, and I forgot that the edge all the way around (covering the 3/4" dimension) is a single piece of ELECTRICAL tape, which forms that nice machined edge.

I decided to publish my tutorial blog early, despite having some info still missing. I figure having something out there is better than nothing, especially after seeing some interest on here. Feel free to comment on it and add to the collective knowledge!

I'm totally going to have to put mine up now. We made a few of the things that you didn't, so it would give people another way to do stuff a bit cheaper (or more accurately, in the case of the knife). Darn not thinking ahead and taking pictures!

Nicely written, and good research! This will help people in places where that old Snake tutorial online was lacking, especially in the belt gear.

Not "wrong" per se. Just inaccurate to the artwork. Accurate to the knife being portrayed, though.

BTW, how did you attach the transmitter box and CQC knife to your harness? I've got some industrial strength velcro that I haven't tested out yet.

Anyone got any big shots of Big Boss in his Peace Walker fatigues? As far as I'm aware there are only minor differences those and his MGS3 gear, but I'd like to be sure?

I've done Snake for three conventions. First time it was PERFECT....second time my hair was a bit longer, but I figured eh, not so bad. I did it this year and my hair is past shoulder length. Man, I felt half-a**ed. AND to top it off, I got a new job at a shipping/receiving place where I could have taken any size box I want. Would have been so much better than the box I took with me _-_ Oh well, regardless of you cosplay from the game, it's fun to do it ^.^ Hmm, maybe I can do vamp...
