Now...who want's to be my Ada Wong?
Okay, yeah, it's not even June...but Halloween is my all time favorite Holiday (Sorry Mom!), and so I really try not to wait until the last minute to figure out my costume (last year was a fluke, since several group ideas fell through at the last minute). Anyway, I'm like 99.9999999999% certain that this year's outfit will be none other than Leon Kennedy of Resident Evil (the video game) fame (see above).
It seems rather straightforward: black boots, shortsleeve navy blue coveralls, white long sleeve t-shirt (all can be purchased just about *anywhere*), the gloves and elbow and knee pads should be found in a sporting goods aisle...and then there's just a little bit of accessorizing to do. The Flak jacket may be the hard part, but I'm thinking about getting one of those weighted vests that the hardcore runners use, and removing the weight plates? Anyone out there have a better idea? I think I may also have my faice airbrushed too, just to give it that smooth anime/video game appearance!
Annnnnd...then of course there's the hair. I'm torn as to whether or not I want to try and grow my hair out like that between now and December, or if I just want to go with a wig. I think part of my (very empty) Memorial Day weekend may be spent browsing around trying to see how much this whole ensemble will end up costing before making the final decision.
