Character: Naked Snake/ Big Boss
(Codenamed Naked Snake due to his infiltration without weapons, therefore practically naked. At the end of the game, he earns the title of Big Boss.)
Time Period: MGS3, 1964
Series: Metal Gear Solid 3
Photographer: Judas86? (I'm not certain.)
This was my first attempt at cosplaying, at Cosfest 2009. Big Boss was my favourite character and I absolutely HAD to cosplay as him.
I idolised him so much, I even cut my hair to look like his. Although not as long, I made sure it was at least similar. I had insufficient facial hair at the time and decided to do away with it. Nobody really minded because I was channelling Snake all day and making epic crossover fun with a cardboard box with photos from a men's magazine pasted all over it.
This version was from early in MGS3, before he lost his right eye. (Mainly because that eyepatch was a pain to wear...)
