We're getting there! by RBF-productions-NL We're getting there! by RBF-productions-NL
This is going very fast, much faster then I expected. There are some more parts that are a lot more work then these parts so far. Mostly this was searching, buying, editting and weathering. Not as much work as some other projects I've done, but fun and relaxing none the same.
It's still challenging to get these kind of characters to look like the exact character rather then a smacked together millitairy outfit that vaguely resembles the character. I want this to be really him!! 'round the 20th of march it's time for the prelude!!! I can't wait!!

I'll be using Naked Snake's knee guard and glove for this guy. Allready got some paracord for the other leg.

Waiting for the M12 holster extender to get in and then I'll be weathering the crap out of those 2 and add them to this get-up. Still need a knife that would fit the one seen in-game oon the back next to the buttpack (horizontal position).

Then the scarf/cape... a Hell-boy arm.... A devil's horne shrapnel part in my skull... a devil's tale sling with ring on the buttpack and I'll be ready for hell :P :)

More soon!!

God, is this looking good.
A tutorial or a bit input on how you weather would be interesting. Every artist does it a bit different.
Your technique seems to be more developed, though.
So, I'm curious on HOW you weather the clothes :)

Since, you're in the Netherlands… you comming to the Gamescom in Germany?
I plan on going there this year.

Thanks!!!! :D
Well I use a lot of paint but I decide on how to go at it when I am standing outside with the brushes, sponges and spray cans in my hands.... that isnt helpful at all... is it? :( Sorry!

I doubt I'll be at Gamescom, but who knows :)

No, it's alright, really.
It's trial and error with weathering and painting sometimes.

If i may ;)
You should change the clip of the pouches and place the round buttons instead.
And also the butpack that you should take is a butpack model alice ( little more modern thant the vietnam's ones and the straps are larger like in the mgs V trailer)
But ... allready looks awesome ;)

:iconrbf-productions-nl:
RBF-productions-NL Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2014  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
You may ofcourse :)
But I donnot agree. I might have to change the buttons on the pouches, but then again I have only seen the custom side show figure and the concept play arts kai figure and they show different pouches.

All I know is the entire world doing this character is simply buying the black loading vest that has diagonal pouches and 2 small ones hanging under those.... wich is not what PS has. He carries 4 horizontal pouches.

Then the butpack... well... with all due respect but again game animators are leaving us with some artistic liberty. How can you possibly desipher wich bag it is from the vague screencaps that are out there in relation to the difference (miniscule) in the bags themselves?:
www.abload.de/img/lc-1buttpack…

I opted for the first one, because it's cotton and more easily weatherable. Plus I love the rings and it's closer to Naked Snake :)

There's more on him that isn't exactly 100% real. I see the whole world doing POS using a simple green tigerstripe BDU. PS clearly carries a dessert tiger stripe (wich I tried to get close to) wich does not exist.

Also, everyone uses jungle boots. From what I can gather they are mostly black... and why wear a green boot variant.... under a dessert camo suit? I got me a new black pair... Although costume wise I like the green as it also seen in the butpack and STABO harness....

choices, choices...

I'll stick with what I have so far and if the pouches become more clear or I can find something closer to them I might change them. For now... I like these. These straps that close myn are also on the chest rig so they are allowed in this era I suppose :)

again, thanks for the input though!!!

Sorry to make you upset :s
I was just trying to help.

Well i agree for the fact that most of the people use the vest with the diagonal pouches plus those pouches arent enven able to fit the FAL magasine.
I was just saying that i would be better with round buttons

For the but pack i also agree the fact thas the cotton look better and more easy weatherable.
But from what i have gather, images and other, since metal gear peace walker they are using the Alice butpack.

And indeed the Tiger stripes should look more sand than thoses green's ones also as you say for the boots they looks black thats still a question;)

And again sorry to make you upset!!

Ha ha! Im not upset :) I hardly get these detailed questions or remarks. I like those but I more often come across them on costuming fora.
But since you statedwhat I should do I thought I'd explain why I did what I did :)

Hey man! I found another picture of the Playarts Kai concept of Punished Snake that on shows him to have 4 horizontal pouches AND the 2 small ones underneath that. The closing is buttoned, but with a little strap thingy underneath it??
Then there is also the concept drawing (the one with the dog) and that shows basically the same configuration.

So thanks again for the input!!! I might change the pouches back to the ones that were on, but then attached in the right position. I also might add the 2 small ones. Not ertain yet about those... I cannot find any in-game material that clearly shows all the front parts correctly :S If you have any more input, please feel free!!

Indeed i went looking them too.
And even if the configuration is the same i dont like the sise of the original vest pouches.
On my vest i replace the 4 diagonal Pouches in an horizontal place.
But even with that it doesn't look the same, they look really small.
Plus you cant even fit the FAL (rifle that he carry in Afghanistan) magasine's into the pouches.

Thats why i like the size of your Pouches.
So i think i will do like you, buy 2 pairs of black AK Pouches with buttons and place them on it.

And about the two little pouches for grenades, well same here i cant see a good image in-game of it so i leave them and wait a little bit more.
Only thing i know is that on the original TLVB from the 80's there were there so i leave them.

;)

* I must emphisize the pic shows 2 Alice variants, not the 1967 buttpack.

Another argument here: Naked Snake's buttpack is an animated one.... It looks to be much smaller then an actual 1967 US buttpack, but I opted for that in that cosplay none the less.

*snickers* Buttpack XD (geez I must be really tired to be laughing at this XD)

Either way, it's looking very awesome! Costumes like this one can be the hardest, because you need to find the exact parts and work from there... Kudos!!
Can't wait to see it finished :)

I really like the outfit he has in the later bits of MGS5. I always thought the "spandex" sneaking suit he has in the intro of the game just doesn't have the right colors or style, it looks very unstylish. Imo, again.

But this new half-cape and stuff, pretty great!

It's the same suit as the sneaking suit from Peace Walker. Rumour has it the sneaking suit version is Big Boss. Then when MSF is destroyed he ends up in a coma and his DNA is used for the les enfants terrible project. Punished Snake might be portraying as Big Boss during this "coma" era. The 3rd of the solid and liquid theme: Vapor Snake.... MGS V-apor....

V has come to...

Yeah, heard that rumour too. And there is DEFINEDLY something off about the whole presentation of the game. So I think they are onto something. I love how they claim that Kaz is talking to Kojima in the hospital scene. But I seriously doubt that. :p

THEY ARE HIDING SOMETHING!

Yeah, we'll see this year!

...I hope.

You know what was a shame? Kojima said that he saw what they did with GTA5 and that his game doesn't feel as good.

WHAT THE HELL! MGS games have always been about freedom of gameplay, sure you play on linear levels, but you can choose HOW you want to complete those levels.  GTA5 doesn't do this, it tells you what to do, if you don't do it like GTA5 says, you'll get slap on the wrist and have to try again! I hope Kojima doesn't go that path with this new game, ESPECIALY as it's "open world". Kojima shouldn't doubt himself. Sure a lot of people dislike his long cutscenes and codec calls, etc... But hey you can't please everyone and those people he has pleased have enjoyed these games greatly.

Took me some research since I'm not familiar with the francise. Is this MGS5 Big Boss? 

Looks like a cool character, very excited to seehow many pvc pipes you'll put in that arm =p.
