hey nice version of Naked Snake ;-) I was wondering if you could tell me where you got that exact tiger stripe camo? I'm currently working on a Venom Snake outfit, but most of the tiger stripe camos that I found are either too green, or too brown. The only one that fits the right coloration is the golden tiger stripe version that I believe you are wearing in this picture. Anywho, I also enjoyed that Zanzibar movie you did a while back. The CGI on Metal Gear D was impressive ;-)

Hey, I got that tiger stripe from "Soldier of Fortune" which is a UK site www.sofmilitary.co.uk/

Hope you find what you are looking for and thanks for the kind words!

This is pretty boss bro! I like the 1911 you have! Check out my Solid Snake and Naked Snake outfits, and let me know what I can improve, what I can add on! I'd appreciate it =]

Sure thing - judging from what I see, here are a few things you could look into getting:-
- Vietnam tiger stripe BDUs
- 50mm black webbing + metal snap hooks, tri-glides and D rings for Snake's harness.
- M56 ammo pouch (x2)
- M56 Butt pack
- M56 water bottle pack (canteen, carrier pouch)
- Colt 45 black leather holster

In regards to the knives and sheaths I made them myself using pleather (for pouches) and wood (for the knives)

Hope that helps somewhat! Shouldn't be too expensive either as most of that stuff you get second hand.

The STABO harness is HARD to find, but replicating it is fairly easy. I did a somewhat more "modern" mix to it. The ammo pouches at the surplus stores were also hard to find, but now I've got a job that should be easy. The buttpack I have now it a batt pack. Also the M1918 holster is easy to find. I figured the LC2 LBE Harness I have works more for Solid Snake before MGS and in MGS2 (Iriquios Pliskin) because of the modern look to it.

So far I've got the voice down haha, but thanks bro! Hopefully I can get it looking good! But question, what do you think of Desert Tiger Stripe instead of the jungle tiger stripe? Curious if you've seen that DLC for Snake Eater.

Yeah - it's always sourcing reasonably priced stuff that was the difficulty for me.

I would say go for it - why not?

Amazing cosplay! :3
Would you be able to tell me what you used for the harness?
Did you actually buy a Stabo harness, did you make it, or did you just buy something else?
Someone I know wants to do this, and the only thing he needs is that.

Amazing! You look great! But I'm kinda wondering...what did you use for the headband? (I want to cosplay as Snake too. :P) Also, what did you use for his radio? Sorry for asking these questions, I just really want to know.

You got it all right XD and you look just like him. Everything is accurate, you even found the right camo uniform, it must have been hard to fiind US Army Tigerstripe camoflauge.

Hey man, thanks a lot. It was very hard actually... as I wasn't just looking for the closest thing I can get to the pattern he had, but the accurate pattern to the era aswell. Luckily the camos I got are 1st pattern replicas, so they were pretty cheap (30 for trouers and shirt) but had the arm pocket that he has too.

That's brilliant, where can I get them? Also your hairstyle, I want to cosplay Snake in October's MCM but my hair looks alot thinner than yours and it's down to my shoulders, I don't know if I'd be able to pull off a mullet :/

Thanks alot! I really tried to make it as accurate as possible, took 3 years overall and was actually the first ever cosplay I started. Very challenging to put together, but worth it. :)

Yeah. I believe you had to go to some of those surplus stores that sells military stuff, right?
I read in another comment, that you got the undershirt from some kinda ballet store? Whats that about? xD

:iconsamwhitewolf:
Samwhitewolf Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2009  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Well, the shirt is lycra and the online store was for ballet XD
as its unbranded etc. And I bought most my surplus online.

Excellent! what have you made your undersuite from I looks rubbery and what gloves are you using. and have you written anything on the suite ore have you just made white spots that could resemble text!

sorry to bombart you, but I'm going for a naked snake my self, just getting all the info first.

:iconsamwhitewolf:
Samwhitewolf Featured By Owner May 18, 2009  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
haha, thankyou. The undersuit was a lycra shirt that I got from a ballet shop... kind of goes against Snake's hardness doesnt it? XD

And yes, I take photos from the game as you cant read what the white text on his arms say so I just did rectangles of varying size as you can see that resemble small text. The gloves I used are military gloves and I cut the index and middle fingers off and then painted the buckle silver. Also made holes in the top of the glove as Snake also has them.

hope that helps haha
