Heather - Silent Hill 3
light blond hair, slightyly wavy. Heather obviously dyes her hair,
and dark roots are showing at the parting of the hair. If you
use a wig you can fake this effect easily by carefully applying
brown mascara. Heather wears little to no make up, which gives
her the tired look, so do not use it either. No lipstick or gloss,
no foundation, eyeshadow...
The sleeveless turtleneck shirt she wears underneath her vest
is of a pale yellowish orange made of a thin, matt material.
The vest itself is a made of a white. lightly wadded, matt material.
rectangular pockets with flaps decorate its front, and Heather
carries her green flashlight in her upper left pocket. The vest
closes with buttons which are hidden behind a flap on the front,
collar turns into a hood. The armholes are bigger than the ones
of the orange shirt, making it visible under her arms.
are orange, but the color is darker and more red-tinted than the
turtleneck shirt. Black and gray wristwatch.
The skirt looks like olive green denim with pockets on the front
but not on the back. It is quite short, covering only about a
third of the thighs.
The boots almost look like rubber boots in a warm chocolate-brown
color with orange sole and upper edge. They also have little straps
with orange buckles on the sides which seem to be more of a decoration
that actually serving a practical purpose.
If you go for props you have many choices. Various weapons, her
pendant, the Seal of Metatron, the Drawing Block, or - just to
be funny - a hair dryer will do the job.
Dodo made it:
one of my first cosplays, I tried to improvise because I didn't
really know how to make a vest like this and couldn't find a good
So I ended up searching on ebay for weeks until I found a vest
that was kind of close, having four pockets on the front and a
don't look the right way though, which I am now still planning
on changing. I also had to add new lining to the hood because
the original one was grey.
The shirt originally was yellow. Changing the color was quite
a pain because the shirt is made of synthetic fiber, making it
impossible to use fabric dye, so I ended up carefully spray painting
it with acrylic spray paint. With stuff like this you have to
be careful though to not apply too much paint or the fabric will
I was very lucky with the skirt though, it was a jeans skirt I
already owned. Just like Heather's, it only has pockets on the
front, so I just had to first bleach it and then use green fabric
dye. When you do that, keep checking the color of the fabric every
few minutes to get the shade right.
My boots I got off ebay as well, they were plain rubber boots,
painted brown and orange and then I added a strip of leather with
belt buckles on the sides.
The wristbands I made myself from thick/fluffy orange fabric.
Ebay also was where I got my wig from. It was a long, slightly
wavy wig which my sister (Alessa) cut and styled. The dark roots
were made by here with mascara and the flashlight was purchased
at a local hardware store.
Alessa also made a pendant for me out of a plastic globe and window
color. My gun is a soft gun and the steel pipe was made from a
steel pipe and an elbow connection from a hardware store.
