"I get it now. Why I'm still alive even though everyone else is dead. I'm not the only one who's still walking around. I'm the same as them...I just hadn't noticed it before."

About Lisa:
Lisa was a nurse at Alchemilla Hospital, and was hooked on a drug peddled by The Order. In exchange for access to the drug, Michael Kaufman enlisted her to take care of Alessa following the fire. Tending to the horrifically injured girl's wounds eventually took its toll on Lisa's sanity. She attempted to leave the hospital and quit nursing, but became embroiled in an argument with Kaufman, who threatened to cut off her supply of the drug. She was never seen again, presumably murdered by Kaufman.
In the events of the game, Lisa is a tormented spirit - she was the only person to show genuine care towards Alessa, and this resulted in her appearing in human form in Alessa's Otherworld. It is implied that Lisa had a darker side in life, and her spirit holds anger of its own, shown when she returns to seek vengeance by dragging Kaufman into the blackness of Nowhere. When Heather, the reincarnation of Alessa, returns to Silent Hill eighteen years later, Lisa's soul is still in torment, but Heather remembers her, and is still grateful for her care.

Awesome! I'd love to see you cosplay her ^_^. Gotta love the Silent Hill girls. Yeah, Lisa's 'death' is still one of the saddest moments in the series :(.

New hat

I wanted to remake the hat so that it sat a little better on my head and was easier to take on and off - the previous one involved a lot of hair grips XD.
The challenge on this one was to make it out of materials that I owned already.
I drew up a quick pattern based on nurse hat patterns I found online. For the main part of the hat, I used a piece of wonderflex to keep the shape and covered it with white fabric. To the back of this fabric I then attached the 'legs' of the hat, which were made from thick paper. Then I cut out the pattern of the hat, sewed it along the top edge and down the sides, then hand sewed the edges of the 'legs' and back. I then bent the legs back and sewed them to the middle strip and sewed the bent back strip to the back of the front of the hat just to keep the shape a little better.
The only thing left to do is to sew clips (which I salvaged from an old set of clip-in hair extensions) to the underside to keep it in place. I made a trial hat before I started on this one and the clips made it far easier to attach/remove and adjust. I will attach photos of the whole thing once it's finished!

Armband progress

Just needs velcro :).

Progress

Progress is occuring!

I will be getting the dress and the hat commissioned from the lovely Frederica la Noir :).

The colour for the armband was difficult to match, but I found a tea green fabric that will hopefully work - it's just a case of matching the colour when I make the badge.
I am having difficulty finding a simple plain red cardigan, but I am still searching! I also appear to have lost the shoes that I was planning to use, so I need to find a new pair. I am a little gutted, because they were perfect. However, I do have the exact same shoes in black, so I may try painting those if I can't find anything good enough.

I am planning to make the earrings from the plastic of an old candy floss tub, lol.

I will be using my own hair for this (I just hope my roots don't look so bad at the time!). I may be taking fake blood for Saeko, so I may add a little in the afternoon for mis-transformation Lisa :).

Shoes

I have only worn these shoes twice - the photo is from one of those occasions seeing as they are currently locked in a cupboard ^_^;.

In the game's cutscenes, it appears as though there is a small to medium sized heel on her shoes. It's difficult to tell, because you don't really get a good look at them, but these appear to be close to what she is wearing.

I bought them in Priceless Shoes.
