Jill Valentine (Alternate costume) - Resident Evil



Photos

 


Information

*This costume is now retired*


This is Jill's alternate costume in the original release of the game (1996). I had to drop REmake S.T.A.R.S. Jill from Kita so wanted something I could put together in a few days and this came to mind. Kita shall still be RESIcon!

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

~Please see my journals for more details on the construction of this costume as well as progress photos~

Everything was either shop bought or re-used from other cosplays apart from the necklace which I hand made.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

First wore this costume to Kitacon III (2011). Due to how casual this outfit is I didn't really expect many people to recognise it but after the 4th person asked me why I wasn't cosplaying it got a bit annoying! XD
I shall prob only wear this to private shoots now or as a back up cosplay.

Wore it for the last time at AmeCon 2012 to get some photos in the gorgeous Keele Hall which looks similar to the mansion in Resident Evil =)

Wow, is there a Jill outfit you haven't done? >.< I've never seen this one done before; you may be the first! I love seeing the alternate outfits cosplayed - they need more love! - so this is gonna rock ^_^. God, I feel like I'm comment-spamming you but you do so many RE cosplays >.<. And there's no better kind of cosplay XD.

Wig

Decided to use the one I wear with my original Resi 1 Jill and Cop alternate.

Complete!

Here's how it all looks. Sorry it's a bit of a distant photo, my mum doesn't get on with technology lol

Beret

Re-using my S.T.A.R.S. beret that I use with my other Jill cosplays.

Necklace

Made this myself using a blue bead and black cord used for jewellery and craft making.

Belt

Simple tan brown belt bought from Tesco. Buckle isn't accurate but again I was limited for time.

31st March 2011

Trainers

Used my own blue Converse, I just switched the laces for a shorter pair and didn't lace them all the way up so the jeans don't hide them and it gives the appearance the trainers aren't hi-tops. Not really accurate but they do the job.

Top

Used the same top for Claire as its very similar, I just rolled up the hem a little as Jill's top is more cropped.

31st March 2011

Jeans

Bought some blue skinny jeans from Peacocks. They have those white streaks that look like deodorant stains to me but I didn't have time to find a plain pair online so these will do.
