Jill Valentine

Battle Suit

Resident Evil 5 (game)

Last Updated: 04-06-2011


The making of this costume was rather mind gutting. I asked for a challenge and boy did i ever get it! virtually every seam on the costume takes in a little to help conform to the body and to be honest i wasn't ready for that. Oddly-nuf there is a good 6y of boning in the suit as well.

In the end it came out cool but there were a few details here and there that didn't get put on and were altered away from the game design. It takes round 2h to get into the suit and I stay in the suit for no more then 8h. This is primarily a result of the bad choice in boots. Actual body movement is restricted to walking and arm and head motions, sitting is possible but hard to achieve.

This costume to date has taken the most time, work, and mula to make. With my hair going blond being the ultimate sacrifices. And as such i have a very love hate relationship with this costume. And officially never want to lay eyes on another hexagon again >_< (after hitting 900 in the hexagon count i stopped keeping track)
