About this Costume
Construction Details:
Still in the construction of this cosplay. The base of this is a gray satin body suit. I've sewed black and a darker shade of fabrics to the suit.

Although it seems to look easy to make, I think this costume is pretty difficult because everything has to be skin tight and most sewing has to be done by hand in order to get the fabric in the right position.

I'm still in the works of making the helmet and arms for this costume. I have the puppets finished too.
Personal Thoughts:
I'm excited about this costume. Metal Gear Solid is my FAVORITE game series. And I am happy to actually be cosplaying some of the most ridiculous ensembles of metal gear. ^^
