Laughing Beauty cosplay from Metal Gear Solid 4.
I loved the BnB Corps and the whole Metal Gear Solid series! The basic suit is all made from Lycra and the cables are made from wide elastic, I was going to use real cables but I found that they didn't move as well with my body when I was walking etc. It was easy to move in and i'm quite proud of it, if I do say so myself :) It will be worn at MCM Expo in the Midlands 2013!
Apologies for the photo quality, better ones coming soon I think!

My masquerade bit! :)

This cosplay is amazing! A little random I guess but has anyone ever told you that you would do a perfect cosplay of Tamora Jean Calhoun from Wreck It Ralph ??

awesomeblossom posted on 30 April, 2013 - 15:52
haha yes I actually have been told that many a time!! I am really considering doing Calhoun later on this year, I loved Wreck-it Ralph! :D
