I know there's a couple threads scattered out there, but there hasn't been one in awhile and with the fourth game coming out soon... I think SH needs a cosplay thread to discuss the outfits from the games! :D

This can be a thread for tecnhiques on certain parts of outfits, helping fellow SH cosplayers and sharing your work. :skidude2:

Anyone working on a Silent Hill costume as of right now? Or have any pictures to share of ones you've already made?

*that pyramid head guy from katsucon*

well, i've REALLY wanted to do some of the creepy-ass monsters, but it hasn't come out yet and there aren't many good pics to use. Either that, or i'm just lazy and not looking for them. :thumbsup:

#3 Heather on 14 years ago

Any specific monsters you're looking for? I'm sure I have pictures somewhere, or can find them easily. :D

brown knee boots with buckles(from zappos.com)
Blonde hair, and cut, with slight dark roots growing in
pink shimmery lip gloss etc.
dark green (coffee colored almost) mini skirt (from rampage.com)
heather flashlight(frys)

I'm missing:
orange mock sleeveless top

I NEED HELP FINDING THESE IN THE NEXT WEEK!!! Crazy- plus my boyfriend is dressing as Vincent, my best friend is doing James, and my brother is Harry. I had twins doing Mary and Maria, but they backed out.

Well, basically any of them. I mean they're all lingering in my nightmares :woah:

#6 Logik on 14 years ago

I remember taking a picture of a couple of pyramid heads with their huge machetes at Fanime this year.They even gestured for me to come over to them. Sure they were posing, but it was still freaky... :woah: Anyways, the thing is, I don't have a web site to put any of my pictures on. :waaaah: I found some other sites with pics of the two, but forgot what the site addresses were. I'll search around and post back with the links.

#7 HybridTwist on 14 years ago

Hey, I was wondering if you could help me on this. Do you know where I can find any clear pics of the main character for SH4?

I actually found the white hoodie vest at New York & Company for less than thirty dollars. I had to go to EB just to make sure I wasn't dreaming and I actually found it. Though it's got no vest pockets, so I don't know how you're going to do the flashlight.

[URL=http://www.nyandcompany.com/index.jsp]New York & Company Webiste[/URL] But I dont know if the item is actually listed there. I went to two of their stores, but only one had them. (that was in Lakewood, CA)

I'm still missing the orange sleeveless top and the boots, but I'm kinda on a budget, so I think I'll just go with kneehigh socks and the shorter black boots I already own. If I dont find the sleeveless top, I'll just go the Japanese Soundtrack Heather style, just the white top, no orange top underneath.

#9 HybridTwist on 14 years ago

Oh, also my friend (GTC) will be cosplaying as well. I'm pretty sure that he is doing James.

#10 Heather on 14 years ago

For pictures on monsters and on SH4 characters, a good place to look is [URL=http://www.silent-hill.org]Silent Hill Network[/URL] or [URL=http://www.black-helix.com/is/dead/]Central Silent Hill[/URL]~ :dance:

And hopefully I'll finish [URL=http://www.whatthefun.net/sh]the Silent Hill cosplay page[/URL] soon. >_< I really need to finish that up... so I can start adding SH4 characters too.

You're in that area? Cool XD But just so you get the correct mall, it's the one at the Los Cerritos center, on South St off of Studebaker in Cerritos (sorry, I got my cities mixed up O_o was in too many malls yesterday. It's not the Lakewood Shopping center one that's off of Del Amo, that one is the one that doesn't have it.) When you walk in the store, it should be on the wall to your left. I was just there yesterday and got it then. Good luck!

Lands end... hm... it might be too late for me to get it there, since I need it on Thursday (AX)

I wish I lived near you guys *sad* I'm about 1/2 done with Heather's default outfit, I can't find the shirt and vest. But I did finish the game reactor shirt. I've also done the memory of Alessa, but I lost the vest :(

I simply gave up and went out to buy a white mock neck that's long sleeved (closest thing I could find) and bought two boxes of RIT dye from JoAnn Fabrics and it turned out pretty well. I cut off the sleeves. The only downside is that I bought a men's shirt and it doesn't stretch too much, so it's a bit tight in the chest area.

As for the white vest, do you have any New York & Company stores in your area? They're usually in one out of every two malls I visit, kinda like Express. The vest is from the New York Jeans line.

#15 Heather on 14 years ago

Anyone planning on going to Otakon? I'm actually working on my Henry costume (complete with an Eileen doll :D) and I know there's supposed to be more SH cosplayers there... but which characters? Anyone? ^_^
