Just curious to see what you all think. I'll try to find some reference pics but, believe me, they're rare. We searched for hours and only managed to find a few...anyway...here:

referance pics:



She's the second one down from that one ^ no right clicking.

I know the vest it too thick in front, the glasses needed to be removed and i'm chubby in the face. so...lay it on! :crest:

i think its freakin awesome and accurate as can be!! but one lil thing that i see is that the vest isnt too fitted on you that is the only thing. just make it a bit tighter maybe! ^^; its so awesome tho!

In the reference pics we had they were dark green hightops with grey tips.

I do plan to toally remake the vest. We wanted it to be padded so it looked bulletproof but we took it too far. I'm gonna make the p[adding of the front piece alot thinner, and the side traps will be solid (we ran out of the stapping and had to improvise with about 3 hours left till the photoshoot : p

BTW, if anyone comes acroos shoes that actually look like Rebecca's, lemme know. Those were black hightops that were spraypainted/hand painted.

yeah, believe me we searched all over, just about every sneaker store on the island looking for something similar.

First I will say that I think the costume is really great. But........
the shoes aren't sneakers. They look like lace-up boots with high heels. That type of boot isn't hard to find. You would probably have to paint them the color you want, but there's nothing wrong with that.

The only other thing is...... the glasses. If your blind as a bat and can't walk around without them I understand. I wear glasses too. But if your going to take pictures I think its a lot better to just take them off and put them back on when your done. It makes the costume look a lot more accurate.

yes...i'm not quite blind...everything's just fuzzy ^o^ i was supposed to take them off but i forgot, so i was mad...

and believe me, we literally looked _everywhere_ and otakon was fast approaching and we could go to like...jersey or something. blew forty bucks on those shoes. >_< but at least we tried, i mean...there was another one there who just had black boots on. but yeah.
