I honestly have no clue who even updates their DA anymore?? MY life has changed kinda drastically in comparison to my last post. Some for good, some for worse. I haven't draw regularly in a while, and with my tech school trianing coming up I might not have any time for it either. But before then, I'm trying to make the most of my artistic endevors.

Next cosplays are looking to be MGSV Ocelot, and hopefully I can finish up Leonardo DaVinci before May. Also doing a kinda low-effort version of Adam Jensen from Deus Ex. My father was kind enough to buy me the official Musterbrand coat, and it's actually an amazing piece of clothing. I just figured out that I should be able to pull off the facial hair for it, so I'll probably be making the beard for it sometime tomorrow.

I'm not going to do the augmented arms because that's a huge project in and of itself. But, I would definitely like to try and get the hands, just get some shiny gloves and maybe glue some craft foam to the inside ot make it look nice, sharp and textured in terms of the different surfaces.

Jesus, just TYPING on this interface makes me feel 14 again. Euguughghg.


Just follow me on Tumblr tbh, it's not super-active but I AM on there.

And if you're hear for cosplay stuff, search for Inkraven Cosplay on FB, that should net you the result you're looking for.

FUCK YES

now we need to do research? If we do that I'll probably have to start doing that basically like right now considering for my Major Ocelot cosplay it took me like several months before I started any actual construction :'D

I saw your badass Ocelot cosplay, and I was wondering if you could give me some pointers on making it! Like, did you just sort of happen upon belts and such? Stuff like that. I'm starting an Ocelot cosplay soon <3

Ah yes, I could definitely give you some pointers.

When I first started the cosplay, I looked at his uniform and did a lot of research (I even got a book in DC sent to my local library) on it to try and figure out exactly what kind of infantry he was, what his uniform was probably made of, etc. In the end, I kinda gave up on that due to the fact that I literally couldn't find a completely accurate historical equivalent! I'm actually planning on doing more research, as the pattern I used for the shirt wasn't the most accurate but that's besides the point.

The belts and holsters I actually made. Leather patterns are your friend! If you search on Amazon, you should be able to find the bullet belt patterns relatively easily. The real deal bandoliers cost $99 each, and that's the starting point for only one! So, I made mine using the pattern, but using RV vinyl instead from Joanns. Be careful, your sewing machine has to be able to go through 6(!) layers of this stuff. Purchasing a specialty needle for vinyl also helps.

The beret was a purchase from a military surplus store. They're pretty easy to find, but keep in mind that you need to shape the hat (they're made of wool), otherwise it can look kinda derpy.

The pants I use currently are just ones that are black and much too baggy. I tuck them into my boots :'D They were actually rainboots I got a few years ago, but it's been really hard to find the same pair again :c Technically they're jackboots which was the type of boot commonly used by the military at the time, but unless you're in Europe getting Russian jackboots 9that are in your size no less!) can be really pricey.

The black belt I wore over my uniform was just a standard issue canvas belt with the buckle that has teeth that latch into the canvas. I don't know exactly what they're called but if you go to the militarily store keep in mind they're not the pistol belts, just the plain canvas ones.

I've been making most of my stuff because I want to get my cosplay good enough where I could enter it into competition, but if you don't have time to make the shirt you can always buy black BDU pants and shirt. I'd still make the belts if possible though, most Ocelots don't have the right ones so it'll help you stand out c:

Hopefully that was helpful!
