Snake at Elfia 2014, Haarzuilens by RBF-productions-NL Snake at Elfia 2014, Haarzuilens by RBF-productions-NL
We had fun :) the weather wasn't to great but atleast I didn't die from the heat.
I liked the way the make up came out. The hair takes some getting used to because you can see my skin through on parts where the hair is combed sideways. More realistic then before, but not as dense as that synthetic carpet I used to use :)

Most fun part was meeting up with a bunch of people. Thanks!

Now.... bring on the rest of may :)

Dang dude, I've scoured the net and i think i can honestly say your Metal Gear cosplays are the best out there. One thing that i really think sets yours apart is the weathering you do on your outfits. I'm looking to do my own Metal Gear cosplay. Whats your process for weathering? Also, where did you get the harness that goes around the crotch? I can't seem to find those buckles anywhere i look and i'm not sure what they would be called. 

I apologize if someones asked you this stuff before. I tried searching through your comments, but theres just so dang many. I love your stuff and its always great to see. Congrats on the new little one, and can't wait to see what awesome stuff you come up with next! Thanks!

Thanks for the compliments and the nice words!!!
Much appreciated!!

I bought (for both Punished and Naked Snake) an F16 jumpharness. You can also try to search for a "STABO" harness. Naked Snake uses a Vietnam era US STABO harness. You can even find pictures online of real ones. Keep in mind that most parts on Naked Snake are animated aproximations of real-life items, but differ somewhat on almost every front.

The weathering I do with paints mostly. Usually alcyd based ones, but also alot fo acryllics. I use pots, spray cans, brushes, sponges and my fingers to apply them. It's always quite a bit of work to get it done, but when done right it really payes off!!

Hope that helps a bit!!!
-Rick

I love this pose. It's so recognizable pose that it's like a feature of Snake.

Btw great shot! :)

Thanks and no. It just... looks weird higher up. I really dont like the skin showing above the bandana. Especially when seen from the sides. It's not as if Im going bold yet, but Snake is animated with an extraordinarily low and dense hair line. Just talked to Do about it and she said this looks way more real aand natural then before. Im not convinced yet....

It's true about Snakes hair, and you gotta work with what you have, so perhaps it's just a matter of making the bandana a cm wider? I can't say if it'll look weird

That would be strange... And the thing is, maybe because it;'s not my own color, I don;t know, but it just has hues of skin coming through here and there, depending on the lighting. There is hair there... I don;t know... Well if I ever wear him again I'll know what to change. For now: On to other things :)

And oh, needless to say but; sorry for the awkward 'are you Rick?' I really wasn't sure at that point. Which is good I guess, when someone is in character. ;) It might have just came out completely awkward.

I will always always love how your wife shares this interest of cosplay with you.  It's sooo sweet.  Anyways, great pose and pic.  Bringing a knife to a gunfight, eh? Though you may just need to take out a gun just in case lol

That's awesome! You pulled it off nicely. And I think Snake has unnaturally low hairline as it is! XD

I borrowed Ground Zeroes from my friend. I quite like it, even when my first playtrough was messed up in a rather annoying way: enemy saw me TROUGH the floor!

So I decided to try the combat of the Ground Zeroes, why not? So I started killing off the attackers left and right, slaughtering them all. I left many bodies in my wake. I realized that the enemies would just keep on spawning. So I decided to hide and wait for things to calm down a bit. When the alert status was dropped to caution, I decided to go ahead and save the Paz. I went to her cell... only to find out that there were 4 guys there waiting for me. I didn't think grenade would cut it and kill them all, wasn't sure. So I decided to wait even more.

...but the caution mode wouldn't stop because enemies KEPT ON FINDING MORE AND MORE OF THE BODIES. I ended up having to restart from checkpoint because it just didn't stop. :D

Anyhows, I quite like Ground Zeroes, it's fun and that "Déjà Vu" mission had nice ending. :)

Ha ha ha! Thanks! And great to hear!!! Gz is alot of fun. Im now trying to set high scores. Did the "eye and finger" mission with an A-rank. Bothe extracted, no alerts, no continues. Still only A!.... ill keep trying though :)

:iconarppis:
Arppis Featured By Owner Apr 22, 2014
Yeah, I bet there are some prisoners there or something. Got A or B from that mission too. Got S from the Rescue mission (use the stun gun you got) and S-rank from Shadow Moses mission. Also S-ranked the Ground Zeroes.

But, I'm not that big on doing the S-ranks. But then again, I always played old Metal Gear games without killing or stunning enemies and moving like a ghost. I love that, so I got the "Chameleon" rank usualy. :)
