Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater
DescriptionSome kids, when they are in grade school, pretended to be princesses or rock stars at recess. I pretended to be a Bond Girl.
When I played MGS3 in high school, it reminded me of my total adoration for 1960's spy stories and aesthetic, so EVA won my heart pretty quickly. And wouldn't you know it, my boyfriend fanboys MGS pretty hard and declared Big Boss/EVA shenanigans in order.
Putting this costume together turned out to be very easy. The fight suit was one I found at Black Market in Toronto - it's actually a pair of Canadian Military coveralls for training and field work in 1982. It was actually extremely comfortable and warm. :3 I wore this the Friday of Anime North and despite all the crappy chilly and wet weather being that day, I barely felt the cold at all, even with the suit unzipped.
UPDATE! I've re-vamped a lot of elements of this costume and I'll be re-wearing it for the 2013 Silver Snail Halloween Party and also hopefully some location photoshoots if I can find the time, a decent patch of woods and a willing photographer. :D
Updates I've made to the 2.0 version of the costume: better wig, new boots and gloves, more accurate belt, coveralls tailored and taken in to fit me better, bikini also fits better now after some alterations.
