Kojima teases the PlayArts Kai Quiet figure

Hideo Kojima teased a couple of images of the upcoming PlayArts Kai Quiet figure for Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes. These are "in progress" shots, and, well, it's exactly what you probably imagined what the Quiet figure was going to look like. It's a nice lookalike, but it doesn't compare to the Quiet cosplay of course.

Play as Classic Snake in Metal Gear Solid V on PS4 photo
Play as Classic Snake in Metal Gear Solid V on PS4
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

The Metal Gear series has a rich history on the PlayStation platform, and because of that Konami is including a special throwback mission in Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes. The PlayStation-exclusive is called the "Deja Vu Mission," and it will let you play as Classic Snake in all his polygon ugliness in both the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 version of the game.

So, uh, great. Nothing like showing off your brand new shiny Fox Engine on a next generation console than including the ugly PlayStation 1 era model of Solid Snake.

Hideo Kojima asked for it and he has received photo
Hideo Kojima asked for it and he has received
by Wesley Ruscher

Back in September, Hideo Kojima tweeted that he was making Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain's Quiet "more erotic" to entice cosplay. He shared designs of the character's backside and almost seemed to taunt would-be cosplayers with claims that it may be too hard to pull off

Well meet cosplayer and UK Dtoider, Kelly Jean's take on the silent, but deadly sniper. As a big fan of the Metal Gear series -- just check out her fantastic EVA cosplay -- Jean wanted to take on the challenge of recreating the accuracy of an actual video game render. 

"I only know limited amounts about Quiet, as we all do, but since I am a fan of the franchise it's going to take quite a lot to disappoint me. Though I do hope she gets some trousers, she makes me feel pretty cold," Jean said.

Shot in a studio, to get the lighting right, and with some minimal editing Jean's creation of Quiet is eerily spot on, all the way down to the exact hand placements from the MGS V still. The costume came from mostly modified combat gear and has even caught the attention of Kojima himself

With Christmas right around the corner, Jean will also be selling prints of her 'Quiet' cosplay to raise money for Special Effect. All profits will go to the charity, which specializes in bringing the joy of gaming to those with disabilities. 

"I am currently in training to be a health care assistant and care worker. The girl I'm soon to be helping out is really bright and enjoys her games, but has severe physical disabilities, so I'm really passionate about this cause," Jean said.
