Information

Been playing peace walker alot recently and after looking around i've only seen one person do this in japan and as its an awesome game and wanting to do a snake cosplay for a while i thought i would give it ago as i have most of the stuff and gear due to doing vietnam airsoft

I have webbing, o.d clothes, a 1911, a bandana, plus other little bits so i should be fine and dandy for this

lol okay Snake :p and yea thats plenty enough time to have that sorta beard, along with time to grow your hair to, hopefully it'll grow close enough to Snake's length.

Progress Journal

Stun knife done (Posted 30th April 2011)

Just finished the stun knife i used the plastic from a old video case and made templates then cut the little bits out then stuck it all together building it up as i went then painted it a base white as the plastic was clear then after that was dry i painted the gun grey on the knife itself then the black grip then after that was dry i painted all the details on

also made the sheath but didnt take a piccy

all done....next up the under armour top

90% done YAYZ (Posted 25th April 2011)

Here is my 90% finished peacewalker cosplay...still need to grow abit more beard and my hair needs to be abit longer but i still have time ......

Also i know i am missing the stun knife i am in the process of making this just need some time to make it as works taking over my life atm

The holster i was going to use i desided not to and orderd a m12 holster (which is the one he uses) that should be with me by next week i hopes

Also i am going to make the bandana abit more worn as its too clean atm

*on a seprate note i know the straps are useualy green but after making them black(as i couldnt get any od coloured strap) it brings the webbing out more and shows the detail better

i am rather pleased with this and cant wait to get it finished i will be bringing my m16 and my colt 1911 (naked snakes colt) as props to the expo as well

next up stun rod and sheath XD

Shoulder gaurds with logos (Posted 22nd April 2011)

Did these last night finished making them painted the yellow rectangles (spelling fail)on and stiched the patches on i had to order the patches as trying to print them out was a nightmare

*on a seprate note i plan to remake these by taking the card out and filling them with some kind of foam just not yet*

Webbing and Holster (Posted 22nd April 2011)

Just finished putting this together out of the alice webbing i have got the belt setup perfect but the pistol holster and the belt are a different colour (suppost to be green) but beggars can be choosers so i will take what i can get still got a few weeks left so it might be changed if i can get the right ones in time

Gloves (Posted 17th April 2011)

cheepest part of the cosplay £1.59 some mechanic gloves and some fingerless gloves my otherhalf gave to me a while back not exact but i aint paying 17.98 for a pair of ex-vietnam gloves

full body harness (Posted 17th April 2011)

Just finished making this unfortunately its in black as its all i could get the concept art shows it as green but beggars cant be choosers. the green strips are for sliping the webbing though so the harness doesnt move about

pretty happy on how they turned out

Handgun finished (Posted 17th April 2011)

Just finished painting the 1911 i thought i'd add a snake eater theme to this 1911 and made it exactly like the one snake uses in mgs3 not going to bother with a sliencer as i realy cant be arsed putting it on every 5 seconds for pictures

Debating on building up a m16 to take as well

Shoulder gaurds without logos (Posted 16th April 2011)

Just finished doing one of the shoulder gaurds by using cardbord( notice the one next to the finished one) some velcro for the strap (which my lovely other half got me)and some fabric from a old t-shirt (thanks again frederica for tips) waste not want not didnt think i could use card for this but it turned out pretty well just on a block atm desiding weather to make the patches or order them from blue tiger trading will make a choice once i've finished the other gaurd and played on peace walker abit more XD

ZEE PLANS!!!! (Posted 15th April 2011)

Started drawing up plans for a few things on the outfit as i usualy just keep it in my head but got a new shiny pad so i am gunna start noting things down drawing plans etc ...anyway back to the point...

heres the plans for the stun rod(which replaces the knife in the game)
knife sheath, fullbody straps and the shoulder gaurds....

my drawing is getting better and if you look closely near the top left corner under the metal gear bit you will see snake in a box with a ! above it with the words ''not snake'' on the side

random but funny XD
