Hey, hey now.. Who's knockin' Snake's outfit?

I'd wear a stealth suit in an instant... I wish I could get the nano-machines to go with it tho


Closest thing to it would be a divers suit, but instead of maintaining an optimal body temperature (as per Snake's survival suit), a divers suit will just retain heat (you'll die, people will laugh)

As for the rest of his gear (vests, holsters, etc), dunno - either made up by Hideo Kojima, or has real counterparts, but you'll likely find better answers by searching for that on the big-wide intar-web.

I know if you have a FaMas, and a Mk.23 w/ LAM & suppressor, you've got his weapons...

Well, I consider myself an expert on everything Metal Gear. I have over 50 Metal Gear games, for every system, language, region code, whatever. In fact, I am the second largest collector of Metal Gear merchandise in the world. I have almost $8000 invested in Metal Gear stuff right now. Point is, I know Metal Gear. And being an airsofter, Snake's sneaking suits were probably the first thing I wanted to make. And I can tell you right now, if you want it to look good, it will be impossible. Simple as that. The fact is, you cant buy half of that stuff anywhere. Its a video game, its made up. The only option is to make it. But that will be very hard, just look at the links posted above. They obviously spent a lot of time making those, and they still look like horrible shit. To come up with something even remotely close to the vest would be incredibly difficult. Plus I'm sure you dont have the muscles for it. My advice is dont waste your time. If you make a half ass attempt, you'll end up looking like this fucking douche. http://www.candyhearts.net/images/Cospics/snake4.jpg

Even if you try really, really hard, its still going to look like shit. And I swear to god, if you do make it, and use it for cosplay, I'll hunt you down and sodomize you with an object so large that you'll make goatse seem water tight.

I just dont like cosplaying fucktards ruining perfectly good video games. And also, its goatse, not goat. Obviously you missed the internet phenomenon known as goatse.cx, so let me fill you in. Better yet, click this link.
LINK EDITED OUT - FF
You're welcome.

The link is NSFW btw.

The #1 would never tell me how much he spent, probably because he spent way too much, but probably about $12,000. But he's in the UK, so maybe 5,000 GBP? And how can I spend that much? Well, like I said I have every game ever made for every system in almost all region codes. Like a mint copy of "Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake" for the MSX2 in Japan which is about $300. A handheld tiger electronics "Snakes Revenge". A piece of the display that was used at the Konami booth at E3 2004. Rare items that were given to press members at conferences and such. Autographs by Kojima and Shinkawa. Konami shareholders gifts. Guides, books, posters, soundtracks, figures, lots of press and promo items, standees, the list goes on and on and on. I have roughly 250 items, plus about 400 trading cards, which are super rare.

But I've mostly stopped collecting now, and am even starting to sell some of it. I'll be going to basic training in the summer, so I wont have use or the space for it there. Plus, I need money for more practical things. Like airsoft

Probably would be fine for indoor use, also bares resemblence to some skiwear or cycling clothes. I don't see a problem with wearing it, I've seen worse at some games.

Bah don't listen to these ninnies. If you like something wear it. Airsoft is supposed to be fun. Be different and wear whatever you like. Personally I think the gear is cool, but who cares what I think? Anything black will look at the very least, vaguely similiar. This look should be fairly easy to replicate.
