This is a costume I made for my brother a while ago. For those who don't know, it's supposed to be an Ocelot Unit member (thus the title) from Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater.

I'ts still not 100% finished because I'm not totally happy with the color of the fabric, so it's going to be dyed. It's also missing the compulsory question mark/whichever.

The first random comment he got for this costume at Tracon II (III?) was from a former cosplay contest judge who said "Almost perfect. You're just missing the questionmark." My brother then came to me, said what he had just heard and then we headed to my firends car and looked what we could do. We were practically going to tear the car apart for some material. Then we found a last years map for the same convention from the glove compartment, taped it to a stick from a random bush just outside the parking hall, and borrowed a big, red marker from the info. Oh, and attached the whole uglyness the the head with safety pins, which we painted black with other borrowed marker.

That was really, really fun!

The photo appears somewhat small (at least to me), so if you care for bigger image, here's the link for it.

Thanks! We're going to another con next february with me and a friend of mine as those soldiers and my brother here as Ocelot. Though I've been wanting to cosplay a female character too (EVA, Sniperwolf or Elisa&Ursula with a friend), I just have to get rid of my synth-dreads xD

Me neither Sad But I've heard the song "Love Theme" for about million times now and I'm anxious to know at what point of the game does such a sad song play...
