Resident Evil: Extinction
Last Updated: 08-14-2012
Another cool version of Alice, this time dressed to survive the desert... and the undeads, of course xD
I have so much to say about this costume, first of all that it's very confortable even though is full of many different parts.
Adding the hot temperature, strong wind and other little aspects of the day I wore it, it all worked perfectly.
The long jaket had to be cut in three parts down in long stripes, the brown shirt needed the buttons and i cut the arms of it and wore on my legs, just like thights xD that's why shirt and thighs are the same colour *w* due to the fact that had to be all the same piece of fabric (as you can see in stills from the movie, you regonize the part where the shirt is toghether with thighs).
I took a simple white top as basis of costume, then a pair of olive green/sand shorts that were really confortable(I could jump, run..).
The difficoult parts of this cosplay were thre belts and the gun holster, which were linked so strangely!!
For the belt I took a piece of rope (more or less 2 m)used to hang up the windows, colored with acrylics, holed and studded with brownish/brass-like rings. Added a black wrist watch held on the right front.
Same thing for the scarf that was originally white. I had to color it with grey-light brown fabric acrylics because I couldn't find one of the exact colour used in the movie :/ this thing just challenged me a bit more, but it was fine.
The gun holster are made of green fabric i had and sewed in square shape. Down the gun holster I added other four belts(two for leg), coloured in the same way of the studded belt and then sewed with green plastic closures. It was a lot of fun too
Last but not the least, a pair of dark gloves without fingers and one of them, precisely the left one ws sewed togheter with another part, a little holster for trowing blades(I DO like particulars).
As just said, i really enjoy making props too, that's why I made a pair of machetes Alice uses to defeat undeads xD a little more work for me, but it deserved!
I used basically silver spray acrylics then used brown to dirty it and give it rust effects.
On the right wrist i wore a little chain-like bracelet, another particular i wanted to include in my cosplay ^^ (for those who remember, the little present Kmart gave to Alice).
The case for the gun I held on my shoulders was made of military texturized color(a facric taken from a pair of military trousers)
Finally the boots: last winter I bought a pair of beige boots that i normally wear for going out..with a little stripe of fabric on each sewed with rings(just to give them a cowboy boots looking xD)
I used no wig, thank God! I could move so easilly without being afraid of loosing something xD
THAT'S ALL and...AGAIN SO MUCH INCREDIBLE FUN! I gotta say thank you soooo much to my friends who were with me the day of the con(usually when we go to every con wearing Resident Evil!) and Angelo Lanna, Fabiohazard and Noriyuki Wakabayashi for the amazing photos!!
