Alana as a Nurse from Silent Hill

comikaze 03I love making my own costumes, but I have never worked with plaster of paris. Silent Hill is one of my all time favorite video game series, and I’ve always wanted to cosplay as one of the scary nurses from the game. Even though this was uncharted territory, I dove right in to the project. After doing some online research, I found a few great videos and got started. After I completed the mask, I painted up my nurses costume and shoes to match. On Halloween, I painted up my arms, using painted stockings to cover my legs, and I spent the day scaring the crap out of people! I was so shocked that most people couldn’t tell if I was real or a statue. Mission Accomplished! I even met a fellow nurse and took a couple of pics with her. Here are some photos-

comikaze 16This year’s Comikaze show took place during Halloween weekend at the Los Angeles Convention Center. As always, I was volunteering for the Hollywood Sci Fi Museum. On the first day of the show, I walked around in my awesome Bernie Sanders Obi Wan tank and took pics of some of my favorite cosplayers. For Halloween, I had spent weeks creating my first horror video game inspired cosplay… a nurse from Silent Hill! I made the mask myself from watching tutorial videos on youtube. This was my first attempt at a plaster of paris mask and I was quite proud of the results! Check out the photos here!
