Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons Of Liberty
Tanker Mission, Super Smash Bros. Brawl
This has been something I've wanted to do for awhile. There are very few MGS2 Snakes at conventions (I've actually never seen one) so I wanted to do it myself! Plus, I freaking LOVE grommet-ing things!
I couldn't have done this without the help of Akuriko and Katsumiyo, as they made it possible to wear this costume by Fanime!
I made the patterns for the vest, the magazine pouches, and the elbow/knee pads. The shirt was made by Akuriko (thankfully, at that. I'm a sewing noob and I don't think I can handle spandex yet lol). Sewing of the pieces was split between myself (for any handsewing) Katsumiyo, and Akuriko. This was the first time I've ever made and used patterns for a costume, and I'm pretty happy with how they turned out!
There's still a long ways to go on this before I'm 100% satisfied with it, but I should have it to that point by Youmacon.
