I'm almost done with my costume, could someone take a look at my gallery and tell me what you think? ^_^

It looks pretty good to me! I'm going to be making a Claire costume this year too. Though I'm not sure how to go about the vest. That's the only part I'm having issues with. I want it to be leather or pleather even, but not sure how I'd make that and paint the design on it. I'll figure out a way.
Anyway, great job! I hope mine comes out as good as yours.

hey, i'm also a claire cosplayer. for my vest, i used that material you use for outdoor tablecloths. it's a pain to sew, but it gives the illusion of leather w/out actually having to pay for leather, so it looks great. and to paint it you can use either acryllics and/or model paint...and the whole thing is waterproof. unfortunately i don't have pics to show, but i hope this can be of some help.

What a fantastic idea!! I never thought of using the tablecloth materials. You're so right about it!
Well you've definitely helped me out!! Thanks. =)

Hey Alice! yeah your costume looks really cute. I looked up RE costumes and you and Leon look so cute together!...I need to find me a Leon, heheh "Will you take the Leon? Yes/No" "Ahhhh...I'll buy him at a high price!" ...sorry for that, couldn't resist. I just cosplayed for the first time at anime LA as Claire (same version), had a great time..I plan on going to AX now. I'm new to this site and don't have pics in my gallery yet...but if you want to see my costume go to the galleries for Anime LA 2006..there's an RE gathering gallery there.

I was extremly lucky to find a (cropped) red leather vest on eBay. It's also a good shade of red and I can't believe I found one that fits (extra small)! The only problem is, is there are no lapels and there's a zipper instead of buttons..don't think there's a way to alter it. The design on the back I cut out of vinyl, painted with vinyl/acrylic paints, then attached it with E6000. To get the design as close as possible I found the Let Me Live logo online and printed it out, after that I colored the back of the paper with a conte pencil, then taped it to the vinyl. That way I was able to transfer the general image to the vinyl and paint in all the details, then cut it out with a sharp knife. The letters were really hard to cut out. I don't sew, but I sculpt, draw and paint creatures so painting it was easy...I'll have to learn how to sew now though, cosplay is freaking funner than I though it would be! Screw waiting once a year for Halloween to dress up and have fun.

Sorry that was such a long post guys :(
