Paradox?

Paradox? - Silent Hill 2 - Mary Shepherd-Sunderland
Is it a paradox or not? Guess that depends on what you think happens after the Rebirth Ending fades to black :)

Picture by my boyfriend, costume by me (mostly altered pieces!), wig styled by me as well. The props were fun to make. I dunno which my favorite rebirth item is, but the goblet was definitely the most work. I had to build up the base to match the reference picture I used. Unlike the reference shots I had of the white chrism and two books, the only picture I had to go off of was the inventory picture and the game skin (which was VERY small!). The inventory pic was very small as well, but I was able to see the shape of the goblet using this (which was my reference for how much further up to extend the cup as well as how much clay to build up the handle/base with. The game model rip was perfect for figuring out the actual fancy shmancy design on the top of the chalice, as well as the serpent which is more detailed than I'd realized (with lots of squinting of course).

For the two books I used a combo of the game textures (which again were really tiny) as well as the bigger (but still not very big) background images of the books to determine where the water damage should be. Since I didn't have a big enough picture of the Crimson Ceremony, I simply added text from the actual book since I couldn't read the part under the title or at the bottom of the book for the life of me.
Both books are repainted, and actually different dimensions, because (as SH fans know and love) this series is incredibly realistic and accurate about the items they put in the games. The Lost Memory book is a bit longer than the Crimson Ceremony book, which mimics "standard" hardbound book sizes (which I discovered when buying the bases to paint!) I didn't even know about these two standard sizes, but it just made me smile...I applied layer upon layer of white paint to the Crimson Ceremony book before painting it red to mimic the rough looking texture that it has. CC was definitely harder to get authentic looking than LM was...

The white chrism was the only easy part, and was made out of a bought bottle in a similar shape (though I hope to find a more accurate one some day) and salt was put inside. The label is of course the exact one from the game In this picture it is supposed to look like I'm pouring the white oil into the goblet, which is part of the rebirth process (21 sacraments? I forget to be honest)

All props were done over a 2 day period with lotttts of paint coats.
