|-About the cosplay-|
Tiger Stripes - Metal Gear Solid is my all time fave video game series. I've enjoyed playing since the PS1 version came out. Since then I was fascinated with Snake and Big Boss. I really wanted to cosplay him. I finally got my chance. Plus a lot of people did say I looked like him when I let my beard grow out. Everything was brought, the wig was edited, the gun was edited, bandanna, the harness and radio was made.
Prison - Decided to do another attire for Snake, I really can't be bothered to order another camouflage set so I decided to do the prison escape attire. The cosplay itself isn't special (unless you count as me being topless special, but it's actually not lol.) It's just me topless covered in bandages, with less gear then usual and covered in bruses (done by make up) and fake blood.) Note: It's not wise to do this cosplay in the cold.
-About the character-
Naked Snake is a member of the elite FOX unit, an armed forces agency that specialises in secret operations. The last apprentice of legendary war hero The Boss. His first name, name, birthplace and other such personal details are unknown. His first name appears to be Jack, but that may be little more than a nickname. In MGS3, Snake's assigned objective is to infiltrate Tselinoyarsk, to save Soviet scientist Nikolai Stepanovich Sokolov, then escort him safely to the West. While rescuing Sokolov, he was told that a GRU colonel named Yevgeny Borisovitch Volgin kidnapped him and forced him to make the Shagohod, a bi-pedal tank can moves with rocket engines and has the ability to launch nuclear missiles. Volgin objective was to the Shagohod to end the Cold War and begin a World War. While getting Sokolov to safety, Snake was approached by The Boss who told Snake she's joining Volgin and defecting to the Soviet Union. To prove her defection, The Boss broke Snake's arm and threw him off the bridge into the stream. Months later, Snake healed and was assigned to Operation: Snake Eater. His objectives: Rescue Sokolov, Destroy the Shagohod, and Eliminate The Boss.

Re-Vamp! (Posted 13th November 2012)
MGS3 Snake is getting a re-vamp! Now I required some new equipment for my Peace Walker version such as the M56 pouches I think I might as well get the other accurate equipment for Snake, such as the pilots knife, Colt .45 black holster, radio pouch, new throat mic and the prober harness rings and snaps. As well as making my own CQC knife and holster.
It will take a while, but I'll do it in the end. :3

Stabo Harness Complete (Posted 10th July 2010)
Finally completed the Stabo Harness for Snake. Thanks to my friend I found a perfect seller on eBay to buy webbing to make it. I also brought some plastic D-rings and snaps from the same seller too and spray painted them metallic sliver to make them more steel looking. I added some marking tape to give off the final look.
