Yo,

I wanna be Solid Snake for Halloween this year, but don't quite know what types of materials to do. Could you mates help me out with the basics, maybe?

I got really inspired when I saw this girl fashion an extremely similar Solid Snake costume at Cosplay.

Click here to view her costume. It's awesome!

Thanks in advance!

I've got almost everything you could need.
Navy blue flightsuit (pop the collar):

You make the bandana yourself. Just make sure it covers your eyebrows, too, for the proper look.

If you don't want to spend so much money, you can skip on the holster and pads, you can get any kind of black gloves, and you can stick with just any generic combat boot.
The flightsuit and the chest protector are the most important parts.

Wouldn't you like to know!
They do have specialty COSPlay shops that make and sell actual costumes from movies and video games and such for COSPlayers and other usages. Search online for American COSPlay shops or COSPlay shops that deliver to the US but BE FOREWARNED!! Some of the costumes they market are high end real stuff and are often limited makes of it so you might pay a good penny or two to get it.

if you have a MYSPACE PAGE you can see they often have links to anime cosplay sites that sponsor them so check it out i dont know the exact URL.

i would advise to just go to a military surplus shop get the combats and whatever you need. then just make the vest yourself instead of tailoring everything which is not needed.

Sweet! But unfortunately, a lot of the items you've listed are out of my current price range. Seeing as how I am posing as Solid Snake for one day, I don't aim to make it perfect, but all that equipment is pure Snake stuff.

Instead I've chosen regular pads from the sporting goods store (all black), a small snow vest (black), an Under Armor fitted sports shirt (black), dark camo pants (green/brown/gray), a pair of black fingerless work gloves (I know Snake wears covered gloves, but these just looked cool), and some standard-issue military combat boots (black).

The straps I've customed myself entirely out of black duct-tape. You may think it turned out bad, but after finishing the thigh and belt, it came out looking alright.

Anyways, tell me if you think the materials I've listed so far are alright.

Why camouflage pants? Solid Snake hasn't worn anything but solid colors in his uniforms (no pun intended). I would get a pair of dark blue BDU pants and dark blue Under Armour instead.

I have some dark grey sweat pants, but if I wear those, I can't equip the belt for my thigh holster to stick my gun in.

I have the bandana, but's it's highly inaccurate with the real thing. To me, the bandana's the most important thing. It's an army pixel camo cloth with a bible verse written on it... LOL. (But I can't do any better. I have tons of navy blue fabric in my house, but my mom says I can't cut any of it because it's for beds and pillow cases.)

So, go to a crafts store or something and get a length of dark blue cloth. Make it triple-thick and stitch the edges when you make it, though. That way it'll actually serve its purpose when you wear it. Also, it'll hold together better, and be less likely to wear down.

Nah, I wanna be Solid because if you look on the CosPlay site, nearly every person who poses as a Snake chooses to be Naked Snake/Big Boss.

I'm just trying to add to the line of originality is all. Too many Big Bosses nowadays.

Lol, and I remember Liquid saying: There's only room for one Big Boss!

I posted these in the "Members Pictures v2" topic, but this is what the result was when I pulled together everything I could find to make the best MGS1 Snake outfit possible:

I know he didn't have a knife on him in MGS1, and his jumpsuit was faded blue, so I decided this would be a "derivative" of his uniform.

I found an old man mask at the costume party when I wore the outfit, so I decided to play off the "Old Snake" look:
