Rachel (Black skirt suit) - Blade Runner, Ridley Scott





One of my all time favourite films, for so many reasons. I would like to pay my homage to the incredible performances the actors all gave in this film. Starting here with Sean Youngs captivating potrayal of Rachel.

costume start - July 2012

Beginning of the cosplay - good research is always my start. This film is not an easy one to get hold of pics of the original screen costumes, and much of it is shot in low light - film noir - so screen grabs arent as helpull. But thanks to all the generous people out there on the net who have shared what theyve got, and comparing other cosplayers costumes I think I have enough info now to do a fairly good job re-creating Rachels 40's inspired black suit seen in her opening sequences. ..next step hunting for a good fabric match!
update: Aug 2012

Time is too short for Oct Expo 2012 to do this justice, Im not gonna rush it, so will have to go on hold for a while..

Blade Runner, Blade Runner, Blade Runner! So much fangirling right now. :) It's on par with Fifth Element and Alien for my all time favourite films. You're going to rock this!

Thanks I just hope I can do her justice. If I can find a suitable fabric the suit it should be pretty staright forward. The hair updo is what worries me the most, its gotta be right or the whole cosplay fails!
