Claire Redfield

Resident Evil 2

Last Updated: 03-29-2014

One of my favorite costumes to wear!

The black turtle neck underneath was a modified long-sleeved turtleneck shirt, cut and hemmed to be the right length. The black undershorts were bought in the workout section of Walmart.

The shorts (originally pants) and vest were white and dyed pink. Initially I used pink dye and added in a touch of black, but it turned the vest and shorts purple instead. So I bleached them back to light pink and re-dyed them in just pink, and I got the color seen in the photos.

The design on the back of the vest was hand-painted by myself. It took about 4-6 hours a day for 5 days (during which, many Disney movies were watched and re-watched). I first drew the picture on with a washable blue fabric pen, keeping a reference photo on the side for size and proportions. Afterwards, I used acrylic paints to paint the design in color. Using a press-cloth and an iron on low heat, I ironed the design to ensure it wouldn't wash out of the fabric.

The black boots in some of the pictures are a pair of my friend's motorcycle boots, which we thought would fit the photoshoot better. The brown ones, for costume authenticity, were found at Savers. The gun is an airsoft handgun.
