For years I’ve loved Resident Evil games and especially the first one I ever played – Resident Evil 2. So naturally, it was only a matter of time for me to have time, skills, opportunity and resources to make a costume of my favourite character from RE2, Claire Redfield. I did so. I made it last year in January and debuted it at PragoFFest 2015 convention.
Since then I took it to some two more conventions, took some wonderful photos in it which you can see in my gallery… In short, I am just soooo enjoying wearing it. And throughout the year I had only one more goal with it - to make/be part of some group photoshoot. Because I knew there is plenty of RE fans and cosplayers in the Czech Republic and it would be shame not to use that.
This January at PragoFFest convention I finally achieved that! We did the Resident Evil photoshoot!
Especially thanks to Kuromaru-dono
and his efforts some of Czech Resident Evil cosplayers managed to get together and have some wonderful photos taken by Skiu Photography
There was 7 people, each of us had a costume from different part of the series, so we absolutely didn’t match together.
But we were resolved to make it work somehow and enthusiastic to take some photos. We had only one zombie.
But it was enough eventually, but that poor girl was shot dead so many times.
Our photographer came and took the photos with a slight fever. That devotion to the art! And on top of that, it was bloody cold and windy outside at the day of the shoot and it even started to rain (so me and our poor Steve, especially, were freezing during the shots). So yes, the conditions weren’t ideal, but it was fun!!! And photos turn out great!!!
Thanks guys! I hope we will manage with others as well some day in even bigger numbers and more matching costumes.
Photos with me as Claire will be soon here in my Claire Redfield gallery
