    hey guys,

    So lately i just came up with a last min halloween costume proposition and need some some input: metal gear 3 naked snake in scientist camo. I decided that scientist would just be the easiest since i dont have time or money to make a credible traditional camo suit. He wears a ton of stuff normally. First of all, is this a dumb idea?

    And second how do a decent enough job of the costume? I figured all I needed was glasses, green bandana, cigar, latex gloves, black tshirt (what it looks like he's wearing underneath lab coat), lab coat, snake id badge, kakis pants, dress shoes, and radio earplug. I dont know what to do with the hair style though as i have black hair and too short to be a mullet. That and no beard. Any ideas? I feel if i dont do this right ill just look like some random mad scientist with a head band

    Consider how any people at the party will actually get the reference. On the plus side those who've never played Metal Gear will think you're a mad scientist rather than constantly asking what on earth you're supposed to be, so it works both ways [​IMG] Extra points to those who get it.

    I've never played Metal Gear so I couldn't tell you how obvious it'll be to someone who has.

    And paint. You need face paint. Maybe a gun. Snake needs a gun....

    But that's not a bad idea for a costume.
