Description
This was a very difficult one to make and in the end I just couldn't get it exactly right so its mostly a collaboration of different peoples advice on substitute parts. I was hesitent about the Solid Eye but knew that was the key to the outfit so after abit of research and creative thinking, I came up with the idea of using a shell of a tiny 1 button remote and abit of crude electronics which actaully worked surprisingly well. Despite its obvious differences to the original, I loved this costume, even the solid eye, with suitable padding around it, was comfortable enough to wear over one eye most of the day and lots of people were dressed in other Metal Gear costumes at the time so I fitted right in.
