Meet The New King Of Metal Gear Cosplay

I've seen some fantastic Metal Gear cosplay in my time, but boy, I've never seen something that, from head to toe, looks this good.

Like, look at the wear and tear on his shirt. The facial expression. The make-up. The hair. It is Snake, incarnate. It's so good, in fact, you should check out the other pics from the same cosplayer - Rick Boer, whose Assassin's Creed outfits we've featured previously - here.

Below you'll find some of the week's other highlights, from BioShock Infinite to Final Fantasy to someone actually brave enough to dress like Fran from Final Fantasy XII.

Fancy Pants is Kotaku's weekly round-up of the best in video game cosplay (costume play), where fans dress up as their favourite characters.

    Wow. That Metal Gear cosplay is fantastic.

    Zero Suit Samus isn't too bad either ;D

      dude, did you look at Samus's face - she looks like a tranny. Snake is amazing apart from the make-up which makes him look fem a little.

        Calling that guy feminine is hilarious. I can't think of much manlier than that. Defined lips and smooth skin are not inversely proportional to manliness. Also, Japanese character being slightly feminine is really below par for the course >_>

          I mean its obvious he is wearing make-up. If they put some dirt on his face it would appear more legit and less like a Korean soap opera lol. Oh and I talking about the second picture of snake.

            I agree with Elitist, there is something a little too smooth in Snakes makeup. Still the best Metal Gear cosplay I've seen though.

        Not very nice saying that she looks like a tranny.

        Snake looks pretty good, but would be much better without the makeup... and that tattoo...

    That Metal Gear one is fantastic! Agreed about Zero Suit Samus... but too many bad thoughts... way too many... lol

    Holy shit balls crap dang that guy is PRACTICALLY IDENTICAL TO SNAKE

    I honestly first thought I saw another Snake figurine when I saw the picture. Then I read the title

    he looks more like solid snake than BIG BOSS
    BIG BOSS was a bit beefy even on MGS3

    That Samus is so good, love the costume! Any girl brave enough to wear that outfit gets my respect.

    welllll he did a very good job looking like Snake...but I like to think that it doesnt count if it involves lotsa photoshop.

    And man theres a lot of photoshop in that pic, especially his facial bone structure to look like Snake. But well done either way!

    Snake looks like he's withered away a little in the photos, fair effort but I'm gonna have to agree with elitist he does look like a powderpuff in the second pic
