|Honestly I know these costumes are horrifically overcosplayed but I chose to make this since I really did enjoy the game. I looked at over 200 photos and many youtube videos to get a pretty good idea of not only what to do but also what not to do. I'm a freak when it comes to following what a costume should look like and I wanted every piece to be important. I even took the time to make a name badge. I noticed that they do actually wear badges in SH2 and found a Remandment notice from Brookhaven hospital. It was a bumper sticker on cafepress and I turned it into a name badge. It worked out beautifully. The hardest part had to be making the mask. I used plaster strips and building that up took a really long time. I wanted to give the impression that this was old and I used acrylic on everything including the mask. That usually ends up being everyones favorite part lol. |
I made this costume from a pretty basic dress pattern, McCalls M4769, and ended up just trimming how long it was. It took forever to get the paint on everything. I really wanted to take my time with this and get it as close to Silent Hill 2's version as possible. Some people mesh both the Silent Hill 2 and Movie versions and it looks weird in my opinion. I really don't like throwing a costume together in a matter of days and honestly who does? I took time building up the layers of paint on the clothes and on the mask to give it an aged appearance. I wanted to make it look like I had been there a long time.
