Are you suggesting that is wasn't clear which part to remove the "UN" from?
I can see why you might think it that way, but I wasn't actually suggesting to remove "UN" from "UNIFORM" directly, more a case that it should be removed from the result of the first part of the clue. I.e. remove "UN" from "VIPERUNIFORM"
No. I wasn't roping in "based around" part. I was ignoring that. This made the clue non-linear for me. I got VIP and ER, then I had to go back to outfit to get uniform and then move forward again to remove UN.
Still makes more sense than what I can come up with:
Echidna sounds like clean alteration.
It fits the "Snake-like", and contains "ER", but the "shaped celebrity outfit"? No idea. The "but let's leave the peacekeepers out of this" could mean remove the "UN" or similar, but what we are supposed to remove it from, I dunno...

It was the first alert in basic training in the middle of the night. All but one guy were on their feet and grabbing their equipment. He was still sleeping peacefully, so our Sarge just emptied his magazine right next to his bed and let the hot cartridge cases fly into his bed. He woke up all right, but he was not singing.
I have lived with several Zen masters - all of them were cats.
His last invention was an evil Lasagna. It didn't kill anyone, and it actually tasted pretty good.
