"Her story begins with her disgraced father, Alexander, who had damaged almost beyond repair the reputation of the family, once considered as one of the first and foremost of the globe. To restore his lost honour, Alexander started genetic studies whose purpose was to find the gene that regulated intelligence. Succeeding, he took DNA belonging to the ancient matriarch of the Ashford family, Veronica Ashford, and "enhanced" it by including the dangerous intelligence-raising gene and his own DNA. All of this was an attempt to "resurrect" Veronica whom Alexander had become obsessed with. From this union, twins were born-Alexia and Alfred. While Alfred was born as an accident with slightly above-average intelligence, Alexia was born with a phenomenally high one, and was considered the premiere of the two: Veronica incarnate. She was so smart, in fact, that she became alienated from her peers and was isolated from everyone except her brother. This isolation embittered her, made her immensely egotistical and she began to view herself as special, though it also allowed her to finish university at age ten and be named the youngest Chief Senior Researcher ever of the Umbrella Corporation."
I don't know why I love Alexia so much! She's by far my favourite character out of Code Veronica, I really dislike how they changed her personality in Darkside Chronicles :( ... bad times! She's also my favourite antagonist in the Resi Series.
Actual Cost: £27.54
I already bought the wig for my other Alexia Cosplay (hence why this one is so cheap!)
*Also using my own hair now as it's long enough :D
I made the dress from scratch using Auburgine Colour Velour fabric, with Lilac Velour for the underskirt and edges I don't use sewing patterns I make my own! I painstakingly crafted the pendant myself :) The Gloves I bought along with shoes and wig. I also painted the detail around the base of the top part of the dress. I hand sewed the beads around the neckline and around each of the skirt layers.

Not long now Brother* (Posted 10th February 2011)
I can't believe how close KitaCon is! I'll be finishing this cosplay off on the 24th Feb all that needs doing is the bead details (I don't have the beads here with me!) so will have a few photo's before Kita, and loads of group ones at Kita! I'm so excited I love prancing about my room in the dress (to test how compfortable it is ofcourse!). This is likely to be a cosplay I only wear at this one event and all other times will be purely photoshoots (which is a shame! as I love Alexia!) unless ofcourse a group pops up again (doubtful since Code Veronica is possibly the most hated of the RE series :()
*Reference to the game characters lol
