I'm here waiting for you

I'm here waiting for you - Silent Hill 2 - Maria
Maria waits in Lakeview Hotel for James to discover the truth.

Stillvisions finished posting his shoot pictures from Youmacon last year and I now have some really great shots of my Maria costume. For a very long time I only had a few really poor quality shots from when I first wore this costume at AN along with a nice preview shot from this shoot.

I had trouble portraying this character and I only have a few shots in which I feel like I pull off looking and acting like Maria convincingly. This is one of my favourite shots from the shoot because it kind of conveys the intensity and mysteriousness of the character. In several other shoot pictures I'm way too wide-eyed, which really doesn't work for the character. Perhaps I'll see if I can find an event or location to wear this costume to one more time to try to do another photoshoot. First of all, I'll have to see if the costume still fits. XD I had some serious issues getting the skirt to sit properly when I re-wore this to Youmacon. (^^);; Despite all the little problems I thoroughly enjoyed Cosplaying Maria because I just adore Silent Hill 2.

You make such an awesome Maria. I wish I could pull off a James and chase you around! <3

You're so sweet Avi! You know, I bet you could be an amazing James! You look incredibly handsome as Firo so I don't see why you couldn't crossplay and be a fantastic James. X3

Sadly I won't be able to go to Otakon this year, but maybe I'll come to Baltimore again next year. I'm disappointed because I would love to see your Eileen costume in person and check out the SH shoot again! I hope you have a great con! :3

Wow, you look so unlike yourself in this.
And I mean that in the good way.

Thanks! Kevin managed to capture me in a moment when I was probably blinking, but that works so much better for the character than my typical wide-eyed look. XD
