Johnny 'Akiba' Sasaki - Metal Gear Solid 4 - Guns of the Patriots.

In Progress




I Have Found All The Suitable Components Of This Costume Online, Now Just To Buy Them All, This Will Cost A Fair Bit And Will Take Some Time, So I Will Plan To Have It Ready For October Expo, If Not It WILL Be Ready For May 2013, =]

I've been wanting to do it for so long, but never got round to really trying til last year when i started researching and looking for all the correct parts, now i have found everything i need and its just a matter of time until i get all the pieces =]

Yeah, his outfit does have a fair few parts to it which look tricky to get hold of. Good to hear it's going well =)
