The Boss (The Joy) - Metal Gear Solid




I really love The Boss from Metal Gear Solid 3 Snake Eater and I feel she's a downplayed heroine so I decided to make a cosplay of her :)
It took ages to make but it was really satisfying in the end. The hardest part was getting the silver parts not too tight but tight enough so as not to be baggy. The white parts are made of a lycra-spandex mix and the silver parts I don't know the name of the fabric. The gloves are wedding gloves cut down and painted. Her boots I bought on ebay and spray painted sevral times to get them white.
It was quite hot to wear inside but not unbearable, it was nice to wear considering it was October :)
