Big Sister - Bioshock 2




My second ever cosplay.

Made by layers of paper mache on an inflatable beach ball, followed by a layer of fibre glass for strength. Holes were then cut out. Garden hose used for the bottom (4 layers glued on top of each other). Cans were decorated using variety of wire clamps, black wire, silver netting and red plastic.

Each belt was handmade. Bought a pack of 40 1-inch belt buckles and plain brown cotton fabric. I ended up having a problem of the belts slipping down during the day quite a lot, so every morning I had my mum literally sew me into the costume - it helped a ton but made it so I couldn't take the cosplay off without someone cutting me out of it.
