Oh my God it has been months since I updated this log! My apologies! Please don't ask why, it has been a crazy few months.
I will start posting again from here on, I have so many new costume photos and travel pics to share!
To start off, here is my "Resident Evil 4" Ada Wong cosplay, I wore it yesterday to ConComics in Guadalajara! It was a great convention, a lot of people, and we watched a very nice contest. I am still in Mexico for the next couple of days and want to sight see, hang out with friends and go fabric shopping (for more cosplay hahaha)!
As for this costume of Ada, I love Resident Evil and especially the 4st game and the whole Leon/Ada relationship. So much tension! I made this dress in about 2 days, using a matte satin. The butterfly and flower designs were hand painted on and the outlines are embroidered, and the dress laces up with eyelets in the back. I couldn't find red eyelets and didn't like the chrome ones, so I hand bound all the eyelets in burgundy thread. The gun is a modified airsoft handgun with laser. I found the shoes after trying on a million pumps that were all too big, and added the criss-cross straps. The wig was ordered off eBay and then cut by me. The scarf was made of black chiffon. The holster should be temporary until I either decide to re-make the dress or just learn to deal with it. It was cool to have another evening dress gun costume to run around in :)
