Had a good time at AB! For those of you that went, I was able to make it to the photoshoot Friday as Young Ocelot but was unable to make it Saturday due to costume difficulties with my Revolver Ocelot cosplay.

This particular image is probably my favorite one so far...

The only way that could have been more epic is if there weren't the smoking dork in the background.

I don't usually photodump,



But when I do, it's because the photo is bad-ass.

That being said, the more I look at this cosplay the more I find little things I need to tweak. Like the whole top, I think it's a tad small and not quite long enough. It also doesn't have the pockets, btut hat's more out of not having time than not knowing they're there. I'm also trying to figure out how to make his pants, because while they are jodhpurs, they don't seem to have the traditional shape? Then again it maybe have been the limitations of the PS2 that made them all weird like that.

So uh, if anyone has critique, that'd be cool.

It's the pressed in crease, and the fact that they're a loose military jodhpur that hasn't been used on this half of the planet that makes them so weird. A quick Google search reveals that the russian jodhpur was quite baggy compared to most others. http://www.2aiel.com/jdpr.html (check the bottom of the page)

Ah, that actually helped a decent amount! But Jesus, was that website made in 1999 or something?! The design is terrible!

Anyways, I found this placelink but am unsure if it's a good or bad idea to buy from them or if I could get the same thing somewhere else, preferably an English website so that there wouldn't be any miscommunications.

The cut looks pretty much exactly how it is in the game... I wouldn't mind dying it black, seeing as dying anything black isn't too hard as it's the darkest color you can really get.

EDIT: Just realized that the site says it's out of stock anyways... and that it woulda costed $75 >.< Kinda sucks, those pants looked to be in amazing shape, and I'm not having much luck finding anything similar on the rest of the interwebs... Anyone have any ideas? I did make sure to save the images and measurement to my computer though, since I figured if I wanted to I could try and recreate them that way.

InkRaven: Easiest would be to buy a jodphurs pattern and maybe change it a little bit. But there are good jodphurs patterns out there! and a few links that might help you hopefully:

http://www.sportsmansguide.com/net/c...mpaign=Primary

http://www.amazon.com/1910s-1940s-La.../dp/B004X18O8C

and this
http://www.google.de/imgres?q=JODHPU...41&tx=64&ty=34

if those don't help I'd suggest either
1) commission them
2) make them yourself again Take a normal pants pattern and change it as much as you need. get a front pic of ocelot's pants (or back shot) and measure everything out. (how wide one leg is etc) by comparing the measurements to ocelots height.
It's just a little math to do (and I'm TERRIBLE at math...but even I can do it :'D) If you compare your height to ocelots, you can find out how wide his pants are etc. It's hard to explain in english for me, sorry <.<°
One cheap example of using ocelots hand (not as accurate as the height method though) :
If one of his legs is 4 and a half 'hands' wide, just measure your hand and take those for knowing how wide the pants must be overall...
The height method is the best imo though... did it with a few costumes to get the right proportions. (like Beatrix' sword which goes nearly up to my chin x.x and is as wide as my upper body) I just took a good picture of beatrix with her sword, took a ruler and pressed it against the screen. wrote the measurements/height/ratio down (her height in inches, how long the sword is in inches etc) and then scaled everything up to my height.
Same with sniper wolfs PSG1: compared the PSG1 to the sniper wolf doll and pictures, and then scaled everything. so I got the exact same proportions. though this was pretty easy since we have the same height xD made everything a little easier ... since this girl is big enough not to look like a midget with a PSG1

But if the character is much bigger or shorter it's necessary to scale very carefully (when it comes to props or weird clothing/proportions). Example: if a Sniper Wolf cosplayer which is only 5'1 big would get a PSG1 with the original measurements of a typical PSG1, it would be WAY to big on her and look silly. same with a 6'3 girl holding a baby PSG-1 in comparison *lol*

measuring down everything is always good in cosplay. I'm sure there's someone in here who can explain how to scale better in english.
But maybe you find a pattern or the right pants to buy, so you don't need to compute all the measurements for hours (But since the jodhpurs are easy and have not a 1000 details like a PSG-1 prop this will only take 10 minutes maybe). Good luck!

Yeah that guy = definitely not Snake-like.

BTW, anyone going to ACEN this year? We have a shoot again, but I couldn't get anyone interested in talking about it on the ACEN forums. I figure we'll have about 20 people, as usual, but I'd like to know who to expect.

Also, I'm seriously worrying about being The Boss for the shoot. My new sneaking suit is more comfortable, sure, and I've been growing out my hair so I don't have to use the wig, but I'm still not happy with how the sneaking suit looks on me. :/ I was considering doing Strangelove for the shoot instead, maybe just packing her and, if I get to the con and feel ugly that day, I'll be Strangelove instead of The Boss.

Not saying YOU don't look like Snake. Just Mr. Oblivious in the background.
