Costume Information

Description
I still have yet to play the game but will be getting it for christmas but I really like Sherry's character design and lets face it - I have an underaged face so hopefull should be able to pull this off :D

Asked to do this for the Resi group Numta has planned for some point in 2013. I've put up the China version as I've seen this is the version of Jake that Numta did - I don't know what that actually means but I'm guessing it's the non coat version which is good for me because looking at the kit I pretty much have most of the expensive stuff already - result! I will be asking Squall_Wolfheart to make the harness for me as I'm feeling lazy and he will make a badass leather one so there's isn't really much to this cosplay :) Only main concern is finding a good wig that hides my mass of hair :) I have one in mind but we shall see :)

Looking forward to playing the game so please please please no spoilers guys! I've managed to avoid most already so :D

Update 15/5/13
Finally played the game, I enjoyed Shake's arc but I feel certain elements could of been explored and it was kinda poorly executed. But I do love both the characters so that's all good. Also as a plan to save monies I will be initially wear Sherry to PAX: Melbourne. Since I am enforcing/gophering - I imagine it will be a very basic version so without the holsters probably. But also means it will definatly be ready for Aya :D

Journal

Trousers Complete (Posted 10th June 2013)

Really pleased with the colour for theses even though the waistband is still really high :S Took a lot longer than I was expecting. I think if I get a chance I will lower the waistband but I'm not sure.

Finally Styled Wig (Posted 12th March 2013)

Since I did the inital wig test there had been something that had been bothering me with the wig. After playing the game some more I realised it was just how flat this wig is. I decided to have a bit of a play with it and see if I could improve it and thankfully it worked. I used the usual "got2b glued" hair gel and fluffed up the back. Then I added a few curls to the bottom and pulled the fringe to make it a little more set. Probably will tweak it a bit more when I try it on my head but overall I am pleased with the result. I was worried the wig was too flat and too short but I think this fluffing has saved :D

Wig Test (Posted 17th December 2012)

Wig Arrived and so thought I would do a quick test (for colour). I was nervous because my hair is so long having such a tiny wig might not hide everything under it but a quick rough test (hair in a bun) worked fine. I'm pleased with the colour but something is off. I think it's probably my caterpiller eyebrows >_< but I might dye the roots a little darker to make the wig more like sherry's. I like the back length but not happy with the side length, wish it was a little thicker but maybe I'm just being fussy?
