Helena Douglas

C2 Blue Dress

Dead or Alive 2: Hardcore

Last Updated: 06-16-2011


My sister is in love with DOA because it was a game that she could play with all her guy friends. She has wanted to do a Kasumi outfit for a long time and convinced Sarah (Panda Treats) to be her Ayane.

I don't like to be left out of things <.< so I invited myself (rude!) and offered to be Helena.

Helena is so beautiful and graceful, her fighting style is so fluid and gorgeous. I love it!

I made the costume from casa satin and crepe, and I think it looks wonderful. I made the outfit as a separate skirt, shirt, jacket, and waist cincher, and the cuffs are velcroed on instead of being attached to the jacket.

I had to remake the shirt for this outfit four times before I was satisfied. I originally tried it as a bustier top, which failed. I then tried to do it as a ruched sweetheart top, but it was too small. The third one I did, I did at last minute before ACEN without a sewing machine, so it's all held together with no sew. xD Finally have a top now that I really like. :)

I painted on the design with a 3D paint, but for ACEN, the paint was too light and didn't show up in the pictures very well. I went over it with a more vibrant white 3D paint, and I think it's more noticeable now.

I really love this costume. It's a lot of fun to wear!
