|I never really considered doing this outfit, but for some reason it is really appealing to me lately! I have already been mentally planning parts of it and after seeing photographs of a friend's awesome BSAA Jill cosplay from a couple of months back, I really really want to do this :D.|
Hopefully for October Expo 2012.
Following the fall of Umbrella, Jill and her longtime partner Chris Redfield became two of the founding members of the BSAA. Together, they fought bioterrorism across the world. In August 2006, they received intel that led them to the European mansion of Umbrella's founder Ozwell E. Spencer. Setting out to apprehend him in the hopes that he would lead them to their former captain and nemesis Albert Wesker, the mission went awry when they found nothing but Spencer's corpse and Wesker himself. Outmatched, both Chris and Jill were injured in the ensuing battle and as their enemy prepared to kill Chris, Jill used the last of her strength to tackle him through a nearby window where they both fell into the ocean.
Jill's body was never found and she was declaired KIA by the BSAA in November 2006.

Pants! (Posted 28th September 2011)
So a friend of mine cosplayed this outfit earlier this year and quite frankly, I adored the pants that she used. They were darker than the cream some cosplayers use, which was what I wanted because they do appear darker in the main game than they do in the later character art. I originally thought that she had made them because they look so close to Jill's.
Anyway, since she bought them in Kohl's, she offered to have a look for me and send some over if she could find them. She did! $8 in the sale! The postage cost more than that lol.
Needless to say, I'm in love. They are stretchy and so comfortable. Makes me so excited for cosplaying this outfit now!
After October Expo I will start to gather bits and pieces for the rest of the outfit.
