Metal Gear Solid Cosplay
I've actually been meaning to post these pics over at the general MG community, but seeing as I now know there's an MGS one...I'm going to abuse it. :D|
At the recent Animethon XIV (Western Canada convention- Edmonton, to be exact) my pal went as Naked Snake in an outfit he slapped together roughly two weeks prior to the convention date. Facial hair, however, he grew for awhile. I have to say, I was pretty surprised; he exuded the Snake persona for the entire day, had a slew of poses that he pulled out whenever asked for a photo- he's got a bit of a flair for the dramatic, I guess.
Anyway. We did a mini photoshoot on Sunday (pics taken by yours truly; I'm an amateur cosplay photographer...or trying to be, at least). I haven't touched any of these up like I usually would (okay, I did one). The Snake is named Denver, and the other chap is Brandon portraying Roxas (he's a Kingdom Hearts whore XD).
And yes, his Wal-Mart gun has a hollow silencer.

He's going to fine-tune it for next year, apparently, and sometime next spring we'll be going out into the bush to do a muddy, messy photoshoot in his pasture. And following that, I'll hopefully manage to slap together a Boss costume so we can do some tandem pics (but if not, I'll attempt one of the other busty MGS ladies as I myself am very, uh...well, racked is the best term for it). Not to mention I'll be forcing my other half into a Major Ocelot outfit, as he's not only blonde, but (somewhat) military, and so will have more knowledge of how to put Ocelot's uniform together than I do. When the time comes I'll spam with more pics. 8D
