Finally, well over a year after I made it, I have some photos that showcase my RE6 Sherry costume. It's a cool time to be jumping back into the RE fandom with the announcement of Resident Evil: Revelations 2. Revelations was a pretty good game so I'm pumped for 2! Looks like I'll be poking Ammie to be Claire and I'm considering Cosplaying Barry's daughter Moira. (^^) I can't wait to hear more about the game.

Anyway, I started working on this costume in December 2012 and I finished it in February 2013. I wore the costume at Anime North 2013 for a few hours around the time of a Resident Evil panel that I was participating in as a panelist with a RE6 Cosplay group. Sadly we never really did a shoot of our costumes and we nearly had a full cast of all the main characters from the game.

My costume was made up of mostly purchased clothing that I heavily altered. I bought the blouse and I took it in, shortened it and I converted the sleeves from full length to 3/4 length. I got a belt that I cut back and the pants were also full length. I cut them down and used the excess material to make the fake back pockets and the 2 cargo pockets. The scarf was made by my friend :iconammiechan:. It was part of my Edonia costume that I just re-used for China Sherry. The coolest parts of the costume were the leather pieces and they were all gifts from my friend :iconthe-letter-jay:. He custom made my shoulder harness to fit my measurements. The harness was the major reason why I didn't make this costume as soon as RE6 came out because it's hard to make a harness and I'm way too petite to properly be able to wear commercially made ones. He did an absolutely amazing job on the harness. I'll post more photos of the costume on my website and the photos from behind really show just how cool the harness is. He also made my back pouch and my holster. (^^)

These photos were taken during a private shoot last weekend in an area not too far from my house. I know the game is set in June and in a heavily urban area in a Chinese city, so photos in a park in September don't really scream China Sherry, but it was great getting a chance to wear the costume again and get some nice shots of the full outfit. Hopefully one day I'll get some photos with my friends in their awesome RE6 costumes.

Thanks to :iconpanatthedisco: for taking photos of me! We took turns photographing each other as she was wearing a Teen Wolf character costume. The photos may not be professional, but they do a nice job showing off the costume details.

You make a lovely Sherry, nice work on the outfit!

And you'd make a wonderful Moira, make it happen! 

(and I know your struggle with the harness...I commissioned someone to make a leather one for my Claire, it's great!)

Thank you! I've been dying to get some shots of this costume. I hadn't worn it in so long that I forgot how much work I put into getting the details just right.

I'm excited to hear more about Revelations 2. The new trailer looks pretty exciting! I trust that you'll be making Claire and I can expect some awesome photos of you down the line. (^^)

Custom made harnesses are the best! I made one for my RE3 Jill costume, but it was so finicky. The one Jay made me is leather and looks amazing. It's nice to have something that actually fits. XD

You're welcome :)

Yeah, I get that :nod:

Oh man, me too! I'm so excited for Claire's return! ^^ And yes, I already made a random closet cosplay of it, but I intend on doing the real thing for next summer :)

That's cool! And yes XD I bought a military gun holster but it keeps sliding on my girly thigh XD those things weren't made for girls lol

So glad you finally got shots to upload of the China costume! You don't really need pro pictures every time. I get my sister to do some photos of my stuff and they always turn out looking great! Pan did a great job!
You know I will cosplay Claire from Revelations 2! I think you would make a great Moira!

lol I can't believe it took me so long to get photos of this costume. XD Too bad we couldn't do a shoot last year when we had the gang together. I still want photos with your Ada and with Jay's China Leon. 

I definitely agree that professional level photos aren't always necessary. We had lots of fun exploring the forest and we did get some solid shots. I love your photo collage style and your backdrops are always so fun. :3

We totally have to Cosplay from Revelations 2 together. (^^) I hope the game is good! XD lol I'm already committing myself to Cosplaying from it and it could be terrible, but then again 6 wasn't the best game and I've Cosplayed a lot from it.
