She doesn’t even look like that in the game, so the promo art isn’t even accurate.

Quiet - Elite Sniper, Bikini Armor



So this is Quiet from Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.
I guess bikini tops, thongs, and stockings make great armor and camouflage in a desert warzone.

Maybe this is actually promo material for Metal Gear Solid: Extreme Beach Volleyball.

Hey Ami! I am a huge fan of Escher Girls and finally I can make a submission! :)

Recently Hideo Kojima has revealed one of the female characters from Metal Gear Solid V called “Quiet”. Her outfit is so ridiculous that I just HAD to put the male protagonist in said outfit and pose and wrote a nice text to company that. XD

Big "Quiet" Boss

Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima recently revealed on Twitter that he aims to make one of his characters in The Phantom Pain more “erotic” to encourage cosplay and increased sales on figurines. In Q&A session, Kojima clarifies his stance regarding the comments he made.

“Maybe the phrase ‘erotic’ wasn’t really [the correct word for] what I was trying to say,” Kojima said . “What I’m really trying to do is create unique characters. One of those is, of course, Big “Quiet” Boss. He’s a really unique character, I wanted to add that sexiness to him. It wasn’t really supposed to be erotic, but sexy.”

“This well chosen outfit is very useful for combat.”, Kojima adds “It’s a well protective design that allows the player to crouch on rough grounds, to jump, to swim or join any kind of battle.”

“Also with the new weather features of Fox Engine, you’ll be able to experience rain, snow, or even wind as they show as real effects on Big “Quiet” Boss’s skin. On really sunny days you’ll have to make sure to use the games new feature ‘sun protection’, to create a wellshaped tan that will hide you well on desert grounds.”

Talking about the tights that Big “Quiet” Boss is now wearing, Kojima added: “The old battle armors were stiff and clumsy and did not really give enough freedom for all the complex moves that Big “Quiet” Boss is going to be making while snaking through the Desert. His new outfit will allow a lot of more moving features while protecting his testicles and nipples at the same time.”

“Another special feature of this outfit“, Kojima said smiling”and I am really proud to say that, will be the feature to customize this outfit in all colours and textures you can imagine. Those will be collectible throughout the game and we did our very best to make them look as real as possible. For a special version of the tights, for instance, we brought a Flamingo to our studio and had a 360% scan made.”

“You’re going to notice [when you play,] but there’s limited dialogue with [Metal Gear Solid V], and for that reason we really want to show the characteristic from each character,” Kojima said. “Sexy could be for guys, weapons, vehicles, it’s really that characteristic, and “Quiet” Boss’s new outfit is going to demonstrate that.”

PS: Here is the original character, “Quiet”. If one thing Kojima surely managed to do is getting a lot of attention for his product by choosing to have this design. I personally find this a little disappointing because I always considered MGS as a high quality, well selling product that doesn’t need to be marketed in such kind of ways:

Thanks for your submission!  :)  That’s an amusing parody, and it’s a nice touch with the reversal of the interview too.

(Also, an unintentional present for the 2nd anniversary of Escher Girls. :3)
