This is awesome. I love The Boss. I also wanted to thank you for the comment on my Liquid Snake profile. I was surprised that such a skilled cosplayer like yourself gave a crap about the exploits of an amateur like myself. It really means a lot to me. Not to mention, a surprisingly small number of people have cosplayed as Liquid (and those few weren't exactly spectacular, lol), and I really want to make mine a good one. Thanks.
