Metal Gear Solid 5: Erotic Gear... Solid? Kojima and Sexy Cosplay

Quiet: A Sniper Deprived of her Words Clothes
     Kojima had requested that the MGS5 designer, Yoji Shinkawa, to make certain characters more erotic to encourage cosplayers and to help sell more figures based on those likenesses.  As anticipated, the reaction is mixed.  Hell, as a male, I think it is definitely a "sexy" look , but as a Metal Gear fan, I am struggling to wonder how this character's story and circumstances would allow for this manner of dressing.  Here's the Tweet where Kojima shows the backside of the Sniper Quiet.

     Kojima later Tweeted that the character he asked Yoji Shinkawa to make more erotic may not be cosplayable, and had this to say in an interview with Polygon:

"Maybe the phrase 'erotic' wasn't really [the correct word for] what I was trying to say," Kojima said through a translator. "What I'm really trying to do is create unique characters. One of those is, of course, Quiet. She's a really unique character, I wanted to add that sexiness to her. It wasn't really supposed to be erotic, but sexy."

     Even the motion capture/model Stefanie Joosten had some things to say about the character.  There are reasons why she is dressed that way, and we'll get to see them when we play the game:
"Of course, I was surprised to see Quiet's outfit at first," said Joosten. "But, you know, it fits in the Metal Gear universe, I think. I don't think I'm allowed to say a lot about this, but, well, Mr. Kojima has his reasons for deciding why Quiet [is] wearing what she's wearing."

     Personally, I trust Kojima, he's always made stand out games and wonderful characters to fill those games.  Sure this "erotic/sexy" issue may be a problem, but I won't really judge until after I've played the game.  In the mean time, shouldn't she have a massive tan?  Because there isn't much in the way of coverage on her skin.  (Also- anyone else notice the strange Zartan-like effects around her eyes on the trailer that dissipate as the camera zooms in?)

She better have a LOT of sunblock.
