Sherry Birkin (Coat version) - Resident Evil 6


Worn at Manchester Expo 2013.

I've been playing Resident Evil 6 with Andy and I kind of want to cosplay Sherry. I want to play it more and try to complete it on co-op mode before fully deciding on this. Andy will make an amazing Jake though as he actually looks like him... I on the other hand don't really look like Sherry but oh well ^_^' Story of my cosplay life! I've been wanting to do more video game cosplays though so I'm glad I can cosplay her, plus I want to cosplay more girls!

You'll make a cute Sherry :D And as for which one - maybe see what you find first - if you find a good coat do that version and if you find the right trousers do the China version :) Looking forward to seeing progress :D You'll both look brilliant teamed up to fight zombie hoards :D

Finished Jacket.

Very pleased with how this turned out. It's fits like a dream! I didn't end up adding the lining on the inside as it would be very hot for me to wear, especially in this current heatwave we are having.

17th July 2013

Making the hood.

I used a pattern for this piece. It was two quarter circles then one rectangle. I also cut the same shapes in some black lining. I then sewed both the outer hood and lining together. I then sewed on a white fur trim to the outside and sewed the hood to the coat.

16th July 2013

Close up of sleeves and details.

These are all the pieces I made for the sleeves. She has a lot of loops and belts on the sleeves of her coat. I also made some hoops for the pocket's on the front of the coat too. I had to hand sew all these on as they were too small to get through the machine. I also sewed the belt's the the hoops so they don't move around when I'm wearing it.

15th July 2013

Almost there...

The coat finally looks ok and everything is falling into place. I need to do the following for it to be complete. -Line the coat. -Add the hoop detail to arm. -Add the black cuff to arm. -Add and alter all the black belts. -Add the back belt hoops. -Add both pockets. -Add the tops of the pockets. -Add the black detail to pocket. -Alter hood. -Line hood. -Add white trim to hood. -Fix boot.

7th July 2013

Showing the alterations of the coat.

As you can see from the pictures the coat did not fit well at all at the back. After I took it all apart, adjusted the pieces and sewed it back together the lines looked a lot neater and fit me well. I also started to add the hoops for the belt to loop through. I had to keep using the webcam to make sure the back of these hoops weren't wonky.

1st July 2013

Alterations and take-ins.

The coat was originally quite rushed and didn't fit the way I wanted to I undid all the pieces and sewed them back together. The fit now is a lot better and more true to the shape of Sherry's coat. It's so comfy too. I sewed on one of the cuffs on the end of the sleeve, it's like an elastic material. I also started to make the pockets. They're just squares that are taken in on the back.

Progress so far.

Well I unfortuently didn't get this done for Gemucon like I said. Still i's very close to finishing so I want to get it done. -Need to buy brown gloves. -Alter the collar of the coat. -Line the inside of the coat. -Sew zip to coat. -Alter sleeves. -Add black cuffs to end of sleeves. -Add fur trim to coat. -Make belt hoops for center of coat. -Make belt hoops for arms of coat. -Make and add the small, black belt detail. -Find a a gun prop. -Fix up boots.

Wig/Make-up/Scarf test

I wore Sherry at Gemucon to give her a test run. It was her version without the coat (the only thing that isn't done) and thought I'd post some pictures. I unfortuently didn't get a full shot so here's just face shots.

15th February 2013

Pattern pieces sewn together.

All the pattern pieces I cut are now sewn together. I left the length quite long at first so I could cut it to the length that was best. Better to have it too long than too short. I then used a simple sleeve pattern I have and used it to create the sleeves. Again I made them too long as my arms are rather long.

7th February 2013

The beginning of the coat.

I used a coat pattern originally but ended up cutting it up so the stitching matched the same on Sherry's coat. This is the front of the coat all pinned up before I sewed it together. The same pattern was used on the back but without the zip there.

10th January 2013

Wig test (no make-up)

I luckily had a wig from a previous cosplay that, with some work, will be perfect for her. Sorry for the no make-up! Still a long way to go yet...
