Broken and in despair



This is probably my favourite shot from Ohayocon 2010 and possibly my favourite photo of my Heather costume that's ever been taken. X3 I didn't really think it was going to be anywhere near as fun as it turned out to be re-wearing my Heather costume.

I fixed up the costume a little bit before wearing it (like adjusting the boots and covering some of the badly stitched seams). It's sort of neat to re-wear this costume because I can see how far that I've come since making it in 2007. The vest is still kind of meh, but it's pretty decent considering the fact that it's made from an old windbreaker with the pockets being made from material taken from the sleeves that I had cut off. XD That windbreaker was a really lucky find at a thrift store. I only wish the material was just a bit nicer.

The wheelchair was brought to the shoot by Derange (that's her ID) and her friends. It looked absolutely amazing! I was beaming when I got to sit and pose in it. X3 The SH photoshoot at Ohayocon was wonderful. Thanks to all the great Cosplayers for making it so memorable!

Edit - April 1st, 2012: Thanks everyone for the wonderful feedback! I'm so honoured that a photo that I'm in has been featured as a Daily Deviation! Elemental really created an amazing atmosphere with the lighting and positioning that she achieved with this photo. I'm really thrilled that this photo has had such an amazing response.

I always thought the original Silent Hill 3 promo image that I based this pose from was a very powerful image and it was really a fun experience to recreate that scene.

I appreciate all the support that I've received. It means a lot to me! :3
