Not a Hero - Old Snake by CrystalGraziano Not a Hero - Old Snake by CrystalGraziano
Of course, he's the definition of a hero. At least he's humble. Sort of.

I think this is a good full body shot that shows the costume as a whole. Still, there are so many details I put in that are covered by the rig!

Octocamo suit made by myself.

I'm just an old killer hired to do some wet work!!!

Pretty much my favourite line to ever come from a MGS game. That and "In the Middle East we Hunt Jackles......"


I really don't know how I had not seen your Old Snake cosplay i'd seen at the other MGS ones, I am pretty shocked to see a woman as Old Snake but you are probably the best I have seen the attention to detail is just out of this world, although that should not surprise me looking at ALL your other work.


So I'm pretty much saying you are one GOOD lookin' old man.... lol..

Wow, jesus that's a fantastic costume. Exactly what types of fabric did you use for the costume? and did you add foam padding underneath the black matte vinyl?
this is seriously amazing.

That is some sick craftmanship.
Girl, you are my personal hero!
He looks like an action figure. As a MGS fan, I would say that Kojima itself must be proud to see this quality of cosplay of the hands of a fan.

Thatīs a very good full body shot, now I can see a lot of hidden details. My congratulations to you for making such an awesome Octocamo suit.
Btw the location is great too for MGS4 cosplays. Question: what kind of fabric you used for the black parts?
Reply
:iconcrystalgraziano:
CrystalGraziano Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2010
Thank you! :) The fabric is a matte black stretch vinyl that I found in the Los Angeles fashion district. If you ever come to the US, we should do a Metal Gear shoot!

ok i dont know how to say this and not come of as mean cus i mean it as a compliment so please dont take offense, but for a chick you definatly pull off a dude well ( i hope i can pull of my screaming mantis equally as well). honestly im thinking your my favorite snake out of the dozen ive seen, you actually put in more effort then looking for a pair of old camo, and it all show in all your details

CrystalGraziano Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2010
LOL I'm not the one wearing it! I made the suit, but it's my husband wearing it. I might put it on and do one of the Beauty and the Beast Corp face camo for laughs though!

I'm watching you now, I'm curious about your Screaming Mantis cosplay! I was going to try it, but I changed my mind to Laughing Octopus. To look more like a chick, try a combination of corsets, hip/butt padding, and breast forms. If you get the body right, you should pass since your face will be covered.

:iconi-eat-souls:
I-EAT-SOULS Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2010
ahahah ok, well that would explain how the costume worked out so well. you did laughing octopus eh? hummm, do you have pics? cuz now that i think of it when trying to do research for my costume, i think i may have seen yours, did you have a person doing crying wolf as with you? if so then your one of the reasons i chose screaming mantis. ive never cross dressed as a character before, only just random girl clothes that friends made me wear ahhaah, and mgs is my fave game so i decided id do one of the bnb corp, i wanted to do raging raven the most cuz of her massive wing span of like 20 ft, but that was exactly the reason i coudlnt, it would be too massive and impractical. and i seen the pic of laughing octopus and crying wolf, so that just left screaming mantis. which works out well because when researching her, i found info on the actual model she was based off of, and im almost exactly the same height and weight as her, im just not female or asian, so its pretty much perfect.

as far as looking more like her, all that stuff you suggested is pretty much what i have planed, im gonna have to get a few girls to take me shopping and help me pick that stuff out cuz i dunno anything about chick clothes, especially corset's and what not. also ive been debating not talking while in character as well sens i wont sound like her, and she dosnt have many lines unless i go her life story which is not very catch ( random fact, her voice is actually a guys voice and a girls voice put to geather)

what do you think so far? im currently at a dead in on the project untill i get some more money to invest into the supplies i need, im not quitting, its just on hold for a bit

CrystalGraziano Featured By Owner Nov 11, 2010
Actually I haven't started work on Laughing Octopus, but I do know of the girl you're talking about. Screaming Mantis is really a great character, I love her dolls! I don't think the model she was based off of was Asian though, maybe you're thinking of Raven?

I imagine with the helmet it would be hard for people to hear you anyway, LOL. So it's not a big deal either way, I'd think.

I think it looks good so far! I'm curious about how you'll make the helmet. Will you include the LEDs?

:iconi-eat-souls:
I-EAT-SOULS Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2010
yeah its raging ravens thats asian. my bad.

the helmet will probably be the last or second to last ( stilts being the other option) thing i will make for the costume. it will probably do vacuum formed plastic, i cant really think of any other way that will get me the quality i want. there will definitely be the LEDs. there is almost no details i will skip. so far ive only skipped/changed 2 thins, one is super minor, the other it was the over all better decision for the costume. im gonna have to skip all the various white text logos on each piece of her armor and arms because i cant read any of them or find out what they say except the one on the helmet

CrystalGraziano Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2010
Well good luck with it! I've actually found what the white text says, but I can't remember off the top of my head. I'll do a little digging if you want.

:iconi-eat-souls:
I-EAT-SOULS Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2010
well i have the text on her helmet, but there is a different text for each piece of armor ( helmet,upper arm armor, forearm armor, arm blades, hip, stilts, calf, arm cylinders, extra arms.... i think thats all of them) and i have looked literally EVERYWHERE, ive tried for days to take pics of them in game but she moves too fast so they come out blurred. i even went to konami HQ when i was in japan to ask them in person, but the place was closed, as were most places, due to Japanese new year traditions. if you can actually get them, even some of them, then it would be GREEEEEEAAAAAAATLY appreciated

i must say, as the Metal Gear Solid series is my favorite yet, that this is skillfully done. I wish i could have had it at halloween :P I think the face is a little to young to be Old Snake, more wrinkles would definitely help. all in all, 9/10. Excellent work.

Thank you! Yeah, I did aging makeup on him, but I made it too subtle. You can see it in real life, but it didn't turn up in photos. It doesn't help that he has great skin to start with! Next time I'll do better.
