Information

-About the cosplay-
Another attire for Snake, this time what he wears in Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker. Made myself the Tank Box that appears in the same game to have some fun with it. Also made the stabo harness and straps for the gun holster which will be edited onto a brought one. Also brought 2 brassards and edited some straps onto them (since Snake's have straps and actual ones do not.) I also made the stun rod and rod holder. The rest of the cosplay is brought or from my other Snake cosplay.

-About the Character-
On November 4, 1974, Big Boss along with Kazuhira Miller as second in command stationed the Militaires Sans Frontieres (MSF) in the Barranquilla Coast of Colombia, where he was approached by Professor Ramón Gálvez Mena and hhis student Paz Ortega Andrade from the Institution of Peace to help they're home country of Costa Rica, a "Nation without a Military." Since the Cuban Missile Crisis, Latin America had become a key to maintaining the power balance between East and West, though Costa Rica had miraculously managed to maintain its peace and neutrality. However, in various regions of the country, a mysterious armed force seemed to be engaged in specific activities, claiming to be an "international police force" hired by the Costa Rican Development Agency. However, Gálvez doubted this was the case as they were shipping in a lot of advanced equipment. He also told Snake that he believed that the armed force was actually employed by "la cia." When Gálvez attempted to hire Big Boss and the Militaires Sans Frontieres to hold back the invasion and giving them a base as payment, Big Boss was reluctant, as he did not want his unit to become a "dogs of war" group, and suggested that Gálvez try to get a negotiator whom he knew to the Costa Rican government to settle the dispute. Big Boss eventually agreed when Gálvez revealed that he knew who Big Boss really was, as well as learning from a walkman bird recording from Paz's missing friend that a woman's voice was heard, it was The Boss, Big Boss' mentor who he killed 10 years ago at Rokovo Berej. Six days later, to preserve peace in the region, the Militaires Sans Frontieres moved into action. After infiltrating the shipping facility in question, he learned from interrogating a radioman that cargo was going to a facility in Mount Irazu. He and Miller also suspected from the unusual amount of film badges and the fact that the radioman referred to the cargo as "spears" that the CIA was apparently bringing nukes into Costa Rica.
