A fishy way to open a briefcase.

A fishy way to open a briefcase. - Silent Hill 2 - Mary Shepherd-Sunderland
Title corresponds to the use of the key, as it opens the briefcase on the second floor in the cloak room :D I just love the fish key...it's very strange, but equally cute. The picture is an alternate version of when Maria opens Heaven's Night.

Totally unrelated, but I played Born From A Wish last night for the first time ever, and oh my goshhhh I am more obsessed with Maria than ever. That also means I'll be working on that costume today as well as several other SH things. I am still working on finding the perfect material to use for the skirt, I know how to make the spots already but her skirt is just SO shiny...it's hokey but I really want to make it perfect since I'm bothering to make each spot by hand to match the game render...I also have the top half of Judge Holloway's costume under control, but finding moleskin in that washed out maroon color is another story entirely! Her shoes are also difficult to find nice bases to alter :P

You're awesome for making this costume and this prop.

That looks so great! I love your face in the right picture, like you are saying You want this? Yeah? - Up your ass! rofl
Finding good fabric for Maria's skirt can be a hassle. Especially considered that it is actually some vinyl material that is at the same time stretchy, and the print of course. I have never seen anything like it, the only materials with this print I find are faux fur/plush/velvet type of things.

You're one of the most dedicated Silent Hill Cosplayers and it's so exciting to hear about all the projects that you have in the works! :3 You're so pretty as Mary! You really look like you stepped out of the game. You totally pull of every SH character that you've Cosplayed with ease! Your fish key prop is awesome!

I loved playing Born from a Wish! I was so excited to get a copy of SH2 that included Maria's scenario. It's really neat to learn a little bit more about her personality and background from that game. It's amazing that you want to find or alter fabric to make it an exact match for Maria's! I know pink leopard print fabric is hard to find and it's never exactly right for Maria.

Good luck with all of your projects! (^^)

Thanks so much for all the kind words :3!!! You yourself are pretty darn dedicated, I always love seeing what your latest SH costumes are as well.

The Born From A Wish scenario is indeed interesting! I'm so glad I traded in my black label for the Greatest Hits one! (Stupid gamestop had the black label disk in the greatest hits box when I bought it and I pulled a switcheroo this past week to get my hands on the right CD).

As odd as this will sound, she reminded me a LOT of Heather while I was playing it. The way she runs is really similar to how Heather was programmed, and her facial expressions are also incredibly close to those of Heather. I think I see why Maria and Heather tend to get the most cosplay and fan attention now as they are strikingly alike in their actions.

Haha thank you! I really want to be spot on (obviously no leopard pun intended here!) with this costume as it has been done so many times. You and Alessa make great role models, I hope that mine will turn out half as well as yours. It's funny because I think you two look so different, and yet you both pull Maria off amazingly! I really hope I can track down suitable fabric one of these days...

Thanks again for the words of encouragement, you're always the sweetest!
