Another costume for London!

As well as Ada Wong and Leon Kennedy, I am also making another costume for the London MCM. It's a surprise for a friend from his girlfriend, he'll be staying at our house then the next morning be handed with a costume and dragged out the house to London.

And the costume of choice (ours not his);

Well if it isn't Link from the Legend of Zelda :D

It looks like a pretty straight forward costume however the bit I look forward to is th sword and shield, I get to make stuff with cardboard and paper maiche! Yay!

And luckily my partner is the same size rroughly as our friend so I have a model... whether he likes it or not!

So far I have bought a green tunic dress/woman's top off Ebay, got a couple of belts on order, I'm going to see if my mum will knit me some chain mail for the top and bottom, he needs white/cream leggins and top, gloves/gauntlets, boots/boot covers and of course the hat, which for wigs sake I may just make a hat with the hair already attached... which might or might not be fun!

Progress

 The jacket has arrived! And I have to say I am very pleased with it. It might have been better to get a large as it's a little bit tight under the arms but as long as he doesn't pick anything up above his head, it'll be alright!





And here are my boots, took me a while to find but I got them off my favourite, Ebay! Only £4.20 :D




I've tried to take photos o the wig again, however it just doesn't look good on photo, I think it's the flash, it makes it look a bit... naff. I also have the trousers now so all I need is the red shirt to be recognisable but still a couple of bits to get and I'm sorted.

Ada Wong and Leon S Kennedy

It may be a bit longer than I thought before I get to cosplay as Meryl. Lots still to buy and with my partner going part time in September to go to college, May may be the last proper cosplay for me. So I've gone simple but still interested. Leon Kennedy and Ada Wong from Resident Evil 6.

For Leon, it's quite simple if you go for the Chapter 1/2 costume, before they go to China. It's the hair,
red/orange t-shirt, black shirt, the jacket, jeans/dark trousers and boots. Then a gun if wanted.



Ada however is a bit more detailed or less simple I should say. It's the hair, cross necklace, red shirt, shoulder holster, black gloves, very tight look trousers, belt, chain and boots. For her I don't have any of the costume!





The hair for her is my main concern but I found a really good looking wig which was just under £19 from Ali Express.


China, and I have to say, for a character based wig its very good. I tried it on but it's not perfect looking, as with most wigs not very photograph friendly and I had litereally just plonked it on my head. I'll take some better photos when I have more of the costume together. I got it from a website called

I have also bought Leon's jacket from this website, but this hasn't arrived as of yet so I will post when that arrives. I bought a fake leather jacket only because I know what my partner is like for wearing and ruining decent jackets.
