Hello everyone!
I finished sewing my Heather vest. It came out great, but unfortunately it's too big so I'll have to modify it a bit. ;_;

I might put off Eileen until 2012 because of my budget.

I was hoping to get some opinions on the wig I'm wearing..... I was thinking about replacing it for something that isn't quite so thick, and wouldn't cover my left eye as much as this one does. However, some friends have told me that they like the 'covered-eye' because it looks more mysterious.

So now I'm on the fence regarding what I should do. Should I keep this wig as is, or look into getting a replacement? If I do opt for a replacement, should I go for the "mysterious" look? I'd truly appreciate your feedback!
I personally think that maybe a new wig would look better, although this one isn't too bad, really. I definitely see the "mysterious" look to it, but if you rather go for accuracy, you might want to find one that looks less thick, or thin this one a little bit. I often see some affordable ones on ebay that look really good. And if you're quick enough, cosplay.com shopping still has the 10% off some of their wigs going on until tomorrow.
If you go more for the color of Lisa's hair in the artworks of the first game, this wig might be a great choice:

Or this one in medium blond:

Actually the wig "bothers" me less than the dress though: as nice as your cleavage is, it is rather inappropriate for a 16 year old nurse trainee to have a dress that tight and revealing. You can tell right away that it is bought from an "adult costuming" site, or at least it looks like it. Looks about exactly like the one I used as base for my Bubblehead Nurse costume.
But if that's what you were going for, then wear it!
Don't get me wrong, I'm not bashing you! Just trying to give constructive critique since you already worried about the accuracy of your wig.


And apparently I liked using "" in this post

Alessa: Thanks for the C&C. I know what you mean regarding the clevage thing. Although her dress does look kind of revealing to me, it's not quite so "open" as mine is. After seeing the pics I decided to try wearing a different bra next time, hopefully it will help to tone it down *_*.

New to this thread, but an old lover of all things Silent Hill. Finally, after years I'll be working on a Bubblehead Nurse uniform (two, if I'm lucky). More based on the film since I liked the texture of their outfits...and their grosser.

Only purchased the mask so far, and done some testing on texturing the fabric. Progress photos in the coming weeks! If I survive, they should be done by AWA

Ahhh the Closer is turning out awesome so far. I'm so tempted to post progress photos but I'm forcing myself to hold off on posting any photos until the costume is completed. It's working out nicely though, got a lot of good height to the costume. Should look especially creepy when it's finished!

I AGREE!


On a costuming note of my own:
I still have Claudia half finished. Want to see what I can do about new lining fabric. However, I think I'll be doing Punk Rock Dahlia for Youmacon

Getting there with the costume. It just takes forever because I'm using a lot of expanding foam for this and I have to wait for it to dry most of the time before I can do anything else.

Pretty pleased with how its turning out so far though.

Just cause I'm overly excited about it, I wanted to let you guys know that we have almost EVERY character in Shattered Memories planned for a group at Youmacon. Soltice_Wind as Harry, Leesers as Cheryl, Straywind as Lisa, Miri as Fur Collar Coat Cybil, Ammie as Red Dress Michelle and myself as Punk Dahlia! OMFG! SOOOO EXCITED!

Hey there! N00b Silent Hill fan here. I watched the film a couple of weeks ago, and I LOVED it to bits (haven't played the games, unfortunately, but I shall at some point!), which lead to the idea of making a "Dark" Nurse costume for Halloween this year.

I did some research and studdied on the techniques on several Silent Hill Nurse cosplayers online and they used a 'sexy' nurse costume as the base for the outfit. Mainly a question to any Nurse cosplayer on the forums, but did you buy an 'adult' nurse costume and modified it or did you make most of design from scratch? Along with that, do you wear short-shorts or an appropriate, not revealing undergarnment underneath the skirt to avoid infamous 'panty' shots in photos?

For my nurse outfits in the past I've worn boycut shorts in beige. I liked that idea cause then they are skin colored just in case they show when I squat or something, but that they also cover me COMPLETELY.

Also, I made a tutorial of how I made my nurse costume on my website.
Here: http://aviannacosplay.wordpress.com/...l-nurse-dress/
I talked about making it on here: http://www.visitsilenthill.com/tutor...emonnurse.html
And there's a great reference and suggestions site for all Silent Hill cosplay Here: http://www.visitsilenthill.com/tutorials.html (Look at the bottom for the nurses)
