You can buy the gun, but not legally lol

But, my advice would be to buy an M4 Carbine BB gun and modify it, cheapest available is the "M83" make as its plastic but realistic so google that, its around £30

Okay. I'm either going to be coming as Raiden, Ocelot (MGS3) or Vamp.

....maybe.

I'm working on a Vamp costume regardless, because I'm going to a couple of American cons next year, so I might do that. Only problem with attending Expo is that I'm going to Video Games Live the night before so I might be too tired. XD Idk. We'll have to see.

Plus, I don't know anyone this year who's going. D:

We definately need a vamp! That would just awsome-fy our photoshoot even more.

So hows everyone coming along with their costumes?? I've still got quite a bit of work to do- I can't sew for my life lol.

My Naked Snake is finished, as is The Pain and I only have two little things to do for My Brother's Ocelot costume.
Ivan has finished The Fear... and Kurt's Raikov is nearly done, not sure about our Volgin, he may or may not attend :?

But other than that! its all great! ^__^

AWESOME AN MGS GROUP!

MGS is one of the best game series ever, MGS4 is so freakin emotional lol.

Anywho cant wait until I see all your costumes :D

I was gunna dress as either Otacon, Snake or a Cyborg Ninja (either Grey Fox or MGS4 Raiden) but creating a Cyborg Ninja suit boy that'll be a task and a half. Its the costume I really want to see myself wear or better make but I just wouldn't know how to go around it, luckily I might be going to start a new project with some mates where we may make the suit.

Nice. I wish I made my own costumes but I tend to buy em instead...Think I attempted to create a Zell (FF8) costume managed to stitch one flame on the sleve of tshirt and gave up.


Anyway your costume RAWKS! Nice to see someone will be going as The Boss as she is a cool character.

Lenin, your Boss is AMAZING! I'm in awe. :'D

Sniper Wolf is pretty much done, just need to finish the pants and do the knee/elbow straps. Sewing on the FOXHOUND patches was really satisfying xD I might have some pictures up over the weekend.

My favourite part about my costume is the foxhound patch. That Patch means business!

Alright, girls kicking the boys' butts photo is on!

Not sure what time we'll be having it. We really do need to sort it out soon though... What time(s) is best for everyone? I don't want it to clash with any other shoots.

Just so you guys and girls know, my MGS1 Snake is now on hiatus until next time. This time I'm going to be doing a relatively casual cosplay in its place, MGS2 Otacon. I'll still be up for pictures and such with you lot if you like, but I'll be Otacon not Snake. Sorry ^^'
