|Time Taken :||1 month~|

Albert Wesker's secret offspring and Sherry Birkin's partner, Jake Muller is a difficult man to be around...
But he can handle himself in a fight, and his blood can save the world for fifty million dollars a pint...
If Neo-Umbrella and their new B.O.W -Ustanak- don't get him first.
After several MCMs of wearing costumes that were uncomfortable or unwieldy, it's going to be a nice change to wear essentially civilian clothes. I'm looking forward to my first use of rigid Collodion, as initial tests have been very positive. The major experiments surrounding this costume are gonna be to do with getting to grips with the basics of stage makeup, and hopefully that'll be something that pays off in the future.
Post-Con Update: Okay, so the makeup went great, the costume was generally really good and I had only one major malfunction- one of the brace sections I'd re-done snapped and I had to fix it with tape. There's small repairs to be done there before the next time I wear it, I feel~

Post-Con Thoughts (Posted 28th May 2013)
Okay, so, that was amazing. I've never been part of a group cosplay, and never been part of a photoshoot before! I didn't get to do some of the stuff I wanted to do (get my Mass Effect signed, catch up with a few friends) but I got to spend three hours getting my photo taken with the other Resident Evil cosplayers and met some great new people! I even ended up on the Capcom UK Facebook page, how cool is that?
Major things I learnt from this MCM:
One Last Bullet (Posted 16th May 2013)
So the new braces arrived, and they're amazing, but I need to do some re-stitching to wear them in the style Jake does. This isn't a problem and should be done Saturday. Makeup continues to go well, all other costume elements are complete and I found a bit of down time to build some First Aid Spray props. All in all, things are looking up! Now if I can just survive the week...
Continued Makeup Testing (Posted 15th May 2013)
So I had a quick test today with the Collodion (wore it to work, most of the staff didn't notice but the students did, go figure!) and it survived eating (it was ten layers this time). The major problem is the edges went white, but I'm thinking there are several possible reasons for this.
Finishing Touches (Posted 4th May 2013)
This morning, for the first time in my life, I exfoliated and moisturised. After three weeks of this I should be in a position to make a really convincing scar with the Collodion. I figure I'll give it two weeks from today before I do another makeup test, just to be sure, but other than that everything is perfect. The jacket has been sewn and adjusted but is currently at my sister's, and I have no idea where I've left the gloves, but all my other preparations and accessories are sorted perfectly.
