|Awards :||2nd Place! Metal Gear Cosplay Competition SUNDAY MCM Expo Oct 2012|
|Hoping to have this ready for September 2011 EuroGamer convention (Friday). Probably won't have the rifle, but will have a wolf pup toy with a heart over its head :)|
The best thing is, my amazing boyfriend made me the rifle! :D worn for EuroGamer 2011, Friday and Saturday :)
Worn at Eurogamer Expo 2012 on Thursday and Friday - Otacon now with mask and easier to recognise, and I swapped the bra for a lot of double sided tape!
WORN AT MCM EXPO Oct 2012 SUNDAY! Won the 2nd place in the Sunday MCM Expo MGS Cosplay competition run by Konami! Still surprised I managed this because there were some truly awesome costumes there :D congratulations to everyone else who took part because you're all absolutely lovely people and super congrats to the others who won prizes :D also big thank you to everyone who came to watch, support and cheer on all of the entries - we were all very nervous up there but it was wonderful to have you guys cheering us on :)
Progress (Posted 27th August 2011)
Got the jacket, FoxHound patches, and put aside some trousers and black bands for knees to buy on wednesday. Also have the wig and a lovely toy wolf - need to make the heart to go above its head now :) the boots are sorted by my old Doc Martens which will look fine. Test shots will upload soon. Roll on EuroGamer!
For now, I won't be making or buying the gun. I know it's an iconic part, but I don't have the time or skill to make it and can't find a good PSG1 prop online :(
However, the awesome news is, I will be making an Otacon to come with me! :D WIN!
