Time Taken : 1 month

Description
Finially finished this costume - the whole outer is made of fake leather, but (as you can see in the finished back picture) there is an under section of lycra to give the required stretch. The first 5 times or so that I attached the legs, any movement would rip the whole thing.
I'm very happy now I've got this done, and was pleased with the outcome. There are a few bits that need changing for accuracy, and I may re-do this costume from scratch to get the right pattern on the fabric. The main problems I had while wearing this were walking in heels and trying to stop the back pieces from falling off. They did anyway. Still, it was a fun costume to wear since I had a resi5 Wesker with me ^_^

Ooh, this is looking good! It's nice to see more people making the battlesuit out of non-lycra materials :). Can't wait to see it!
