View Full Version : Claire's Vest

My friends and I are planning to dress up as a bunch of RE characters. I would like to dress up as Claire. So far, the best vest I have seen is this: http://www.buckle.com/product/product_detail.jsp?prd=14453J42499&cm_mmc=TRShopping-_-Froogle-_-keywords-_-Jack%20B.B.%20Dakota%20Motorcycle%20Vest
Now, Claire's vest is a lot more simple, but I think it fits quite a bit of her vest's qualities (the color, the zipper, the collar). I would love to buy it and do a painting of the "Made in Heaven" logo. Do you think if I did a good job with the logo, someone would buy the vest? I do not want to buy that vest if I won't make at least half back of what spent on it.

The vest is wrong. Claire's isn't a double breasted vest in Code V. You could probably resell it to some dumb schmuck whose only ever seen the movies, but any girl with half a brain and a genuine interest in accuracy wouldn't think a second thought about it.

Your comment was kind of rude. Essentially you were calling me a dumb schmuck. A lot nicer ways you could have put that. Cosplay is not exactly a passion of mine and this is the first time I am doing something like this.
I realize that it is double breasted but it is the only red leather vest I could find that even closely resembled it without shelling out 150 bucks. Also if I am looking for extreme accuracy the Code Veronica vest is denim and has buttons. But I'll keep on looking in that case.

Don't mind Marshall. He's an acquired taste. I doubt very much he meant to insult you personally.
The vest does have a Claire vibe to it, if you're not bent on 100% accuracy. If you are, you would probably have to make it from scratch or take a look 'round eBay to see if one there is any good.

It all depends on which claire you want to be, though I def feel the Claire vibe from it. If someone will buy it after you use it, I am not sure. If you paint it well, and find someone who wants it as a vest it would sell, but as for selling it as a Claire Redfield Vest I'm not sure, since it isn't really to accurate.

In Darkside Chronicles, it could almost pass for it if you pop the collar, though hers has buttons instead of a zipper. If you alter that then you'll be good.
