You know, one of these days I'll post pics of this costume not in the water. I promise I'm not hiding my legs or anything.

also I think this is one of the most beautiful shots I have. It's all downhill from here, guys :v lol

Hey, I am interested in cosplaying as MGSII Raiden for an upcoming convention, but I have no clue where to start with making his outfit. >.< Any tips? Thank you very much!

That depends on your skill with sewing stretch materials + your budget. o_o; I'd suggest getting a bodysuit that you won't end up using as a base, draw the lines that will become the seams, and pattern from there, but that's only what I did with my neoprene wetsuit. If you're working in other materials, you might not have that kind of luxury.

But anyway, it doesn't matter. You can enjoy it by yourself without anyone giving you a prize :)
