Costume Information

Cost : I've lost count.... around £150 so far, I think
Awards : Best Individual Cosplay for Eirtakon 2008
Time Taken : Since August 2008

I chose to make this costume because I'm always told I can do a brilliant Snake impression and I think I kinda look like with my gruff beard and mullet. I also think Snake is one of the most badass characters in the games industry and I'm a big fan. I guess the most difficult part of the costume was trying to find equipment that looked just like Snake's gear. You would not believe how long I spent trying to find the right harness. XD The easiest part was probably the undersuit since both the top and trousers belonged to my dad. I wanna look for something darker though, I felt it was too light a grey. Also the hair was pretty easy too. My hair was quite long before the con so I had it cut to appropriate length and style then I just gelled it back. The bandana was made out of some green fabric from a textiles shop by a local sewing person (dunno the correct term for them ^^;). The costume was quite snug because the shirt was too small for me and the gear had to be fitted quite tightly. But Snake's suit is skin tight so at least it was accurate in that respect. I had to use safety pins to keep the knee sleeves in place. I stabbed my legs a couple times... Xo
