Costume Information

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 :)


Finished it!

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 :)

Nice, Sniper Wolf is one of my favourite characters from MGS and I love your rifle and your idea to have a wolf plushie with the heart over it ^_^

Thanks all :D lovely comments :) makes up for the one person on facebook who went on a rant and tried to tell me the gun wasn't anything like hers and was totally inaccurate....spoilsports! No idea what they were on about anyway, it's pretty damn close to the reference from what I can see....

I'd love to take credit for the gun, but my boyfriend made it for me as a total surprise! It's mainly cardboard, paper, and a lot of glue. There are a few metal nuts stuck on as well in the details. The outer was masking tape, and all spraypainted with black and a little silver for the aged look.

I now also have the fingerless gloves, and a much improved set of belt pouches more suiting to her. Good old Army Surplus stores! :D

The wolf will hopefully be improved later to be attached so Otacon doesn't have to carry him all day :P and the heart broke a bit during Eurogamer :( but the updated version will be around many times in the future because MGS still rocks and I will always love this costume now I have it! :D

Thanks again for the comments :) hope to see lots more MGS fans and cosplayers in the future!

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!
