Character: Cryin Wolf
Source: Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots
Event: MCM Expo October 2011
Pain level: High. The head piece and lower body are supported by a strap around the small of my waist. There's also a strap supporting the legs that goes around my neck.
To be worn at: no more events. Too much pain. I shall repair it and don it again only for a photo shoot.
It was my first time in the Expo masquerade because this cosplay simply couldn't be worn just to wander around in. I was so terrified but I had a wonderful assistant to help me. I could barely see a thing.
The most hilarious moment was my gun fastening deciding to snap during the pre-judging. A bit of glue and ingenuity later and I was ready to roll.
Thank you to everyone who came up to me and complimented the suit. It made the past year of working on it worthwhile.
