I've always loved Metal Gear Solid and I decided one day I would dress up as someone from there. I always thought in my head I would of done EVA, but yeah, I'm not that comfortable showing off that much flesh, espcially in the breast areas aha! I didn't really like Meryl that much, I dunno maybe she's too boyish for my to dress up as, but yeah she didn't really appeal to me on a whole. So I was stuck on who to dress up as, then it hit me. Mei-Ling, in Metal Gear Solid one you only see her on the contact screen, so you don't really see what she was wearing until you google it ;D.

I found loads of full body shots, the suit looked mostly purple and blue. I decided to go with purple, as it's a more girly of a colour and I dunno suited her better? I then remember about the special missions game, but I don't have a PS1 at my house so you can't load it to work on your PS2 so I really can't remember what colour her suit was on there. One of the missons was to take photos of her, dancing around stupidly aha.

Bought the purple suit off e-bay for £10, then made the skirt sorter. What a nightmare that was, the sewing machine wouldn't do it lol, after like the 4th try I managed woop!

The sleeves annoy me with the slit opening though, might have to sew them down when I get bored.
