    Just wanted to chime in again and say that I got to use the harness for a full con. Once properly adjusted (at least I think it was proper), there wasn't any discomfort in the crotch despite having d-rings and hooks in such close proximity. I was one of only three Naked Snake / Big Boss to have the right harness and it made a noticeable difference!

    One of the other three, when I commented on his harness I asked if he made it. he said no, he bought it. I asked original or from someone making reproductions, and he said reproduction. I asked "Was his name "The Ronin"?" and he looked surprised and said yes. What are the odds?!

    I have a picture of the two of use side-by-side I need to send you.

    Hey Ronin great stuff! Thank you for making this thread, I've used your thread as a reference to create my Naked Snake Cosplay! I have a question: what is that bag you use for your Butt Pack? Do you know what it's called or the brand?

    Unfortunately I have no clue what brand it is. It was some no-name purse that I removed the shoulder strap and a stupid iron cross patch. Then I sewed on some belt loops.

    Edit: I did find it at a military surplus store

    I found out the type of butt pack is called a German Bread bag, found it on eBay for $20 brand new! The brand is Mil-tec

    Heyy Ronin, would you mind sending me the links for where you got that? Originally was going to do Luke Skywalker this year, but I did Venom Snake last year and I want to do Big Boss from Snake Eater. That and I think the olive drab is all I'm missing but I might bite the bullet on that one. Or if you want a comission let me know, I've been stuck on the Stabo. Venom Snake last year Thanks!!!!!!

    If you're talking about the equipment packs I was harvesting for materials, unfortunately the supply seems to have dried up. I was getting them for about $25 shipped, but now I'm only finding them for $100+

    If you're looking to do a Snake Eater style STABO, then the game version is black, not OD green, so the equipment packs would only net you the hardware anyway. I've been sourcing my stuff lately from a parachute supply company www.paragear.come

    If you'd like to commission one, I'd be happy to make it. Shoot me a PM here or on my page, since I see you discovered that as well

    Yeah, we're definitely a little spoiled over here in the US. I'm actually getting ready to start Venom Snake for a conference here in May
