Sara Sidle (Forensics overalls) - CSI: Crime Scene Investigation




*This costume is now retired*

I'm going to a location photo shoot in a week's time and wanted to take an extra costume with me. Obviously the time limit is a big issue so this came to mind as it'll suit the location and should be quick to put together. Any kit I acquire can be reused with the other version of Sara I have planned already too.


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

The overalls were bought on ebay and I added the CSI patch and FORENSICS lettering.

The boots were bought on ebay.

The foresnics kit was put together using a mix of ebay, other websites and items from my pharmacy.


No challenge with this costume, quick to do and comfy to wear.
As well as the private photoshoot I also wore it at the London Super Comic Con 2015 where I think only one person knew who I was lol

Forensics lettering

After finding the closest font I could find I printed out the letters onto paper and cut them carefully to make a stencil. I painted directly onto the overalls using Dylon fabric paint.

I don't like the finish on these, looks kinda like suede but they were the best I could find in such a short time.

Base overalls/ boiler suit

Another ebay purchase. As with the combats I wear with some of my Resident Evil cosplays it took a while to find one that wouldn't swamp me as they are usually designed with men in mind.
I will need to make modifications to the breast pockets.
