28th August 2011: Progress Got the jacket, FoxHound patches, and put aside some trousers and black bands for knees to buy on wednesday. Also have the wig and a lovely toy wolf - need to make the heart to go above its head now :) the boots are sorted by my old Doc Martens which will look fine. Test shots will upload soon. Roll on EuroGamer!
For now, I won't be making or buying the gun. I know it's an iconic part, but I don't have the time or skill to make it and can't find a good PSG1 prop online :(
However, the awesome news is, I will be making an Otacon to come with me! :D WIN!

Nice, Sniper Wolf is one of my favourite characters from MGS and I love your rifle and your idea to have a wolf plushie with the heart over it ^_^

Thanks all :D lovely comments :) makes up for the one person on facebook who went on a rant and tried to tell me the gun wasn't anything like hers and was totally inaccurate....spoilsports! No idea what they were on about anyway, it's pretty damn close to the reference from what I can see....
I'd love to take credit for the gun, but my boyfriend made it for me as a total surprise! It's mainly cardboard, paper, and a lot of glue. There are a few metal nuts stuck on as well in the details. The outer was masking tape, and all spraypainted with black and a little silver for the aged look.
I now also have the fingerless gloves, and a much improved set of belt pouches more suiting to her. Good old Army Surplus stores! :D
The wolf will hopefully be improved later to be attached so Otacon doesn't have to carry him all day :P and the heart broke a bit during Eurogamer :( but the updated version will be around many times in the future because MGS still rocks and I will always love this costume now I have it! :D
Thanks again for the comments :) hope to see lots more MGS fans and cosplayers in the future!
