This one is heavily edited; it took me over an hour of playing with to get it to be dark enough without making Val fade into the background. This photo recreates the cutscene in the beginning of the game where James looks into the mirror (and makes the same gesture we see someone else make later on.) This shot was Val's idea, and we got really lucky that 1 of the pictures turned out so well. Everyone at IKEA must have thought my bf and Val were massive weirdos. I sure felt funny waiting outside in my Maria costume, but I didn't want to go in the store with my midriff showing since there are tons of little kids running around there and whatnot.
I decided to upload this one in honor of Guy Cihi's letter to Konami. I really respect his decisions and I want to spread the word around to any SH fans who may see this picture.
Please check it out, even if you feel very strongly one way or the other about the topic. I think it is worthwhile to be informed at the very least.

Wig/costume done by me.
And with that I'm off to do some history reading before I break out the cosplay stuff again!
