|Time Taken :||5-10 hours?|
|I hadn't considered Ellie until we played the game, and for the first time in my life a child character in a game actually appealed to me. Not only that, her script stole the show for me. So as a last minute quick costume for AyaCon (with the theme of Apocalypse) I thought she was suited, and I managed to convince Kuma to go as Joel, and Amy-Lou as Tess. |
Basically, who doesn't want to be a foul-mouthed 14 year old?
I went for the concept art as her t-shirt print was far easier, and really most of the costume was a primark run and then rolling around in the garden. Dirt and dust were done with a combination of tea, sandpaper, knives, spray paint and talc powder.
Aya was mainly a trial run, and we've found an old abandoned railway station and tunnels up north west London so planning a photoshoot there a bit later in the year!
Highlights of Aya was finding some absolutely amazing clickers at the end of the night, having a few photos and getting a great video short done by Nert!
For the second run I need to do some more dirtying, finish her backpack and change the parting on the wig to the *right* side...damn mirrors. The wig was very last minute and I'll keep an eye out for a redder one, but in the dark shots it doesn't matter too much!
