Cosplayer Ammie > Costume of Ada Wong from Resident Evil 6
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- I made everything from scratch minus the boots and gloves. The gloves were a pair of lined pleather ones I had and I added some additonal pleather to make them elbow length. Looking back at these pics I am gonna make them longer so they don't expose my elbow when I bend it. The boots I have had for a long time, they even have the little silver buckle on the sides like hers. I made the pirate style flap out of vinyl. They just slide into the top of the boot and fold over.
The red blouse was made of a dark red vinatge satin. I used the matte side of the satin so it would be less shiny. The buttons are 100% accurate to hers in the game. I found them by chance in a clearance bin. I got all of them for $1 lol. They are gold and have the 4 sew holes in them, just like hers.
The pants were made of a semi stretch high quality pleather. They are so comfy it's unreal. I used a low rise pants pattern and modified the heck out of them to make them identical to hers. The silver chain a rings I had already and attached them to the belt loops. I added the silver zipper pockets in the back like hers, and yes they are real pockets (although I don't know what I could fit in there with how close fit they are O_o).
I made the belt from and pouches from Vinyl as well. The pouches are awesome for carrying stuff around in at a con.
Every seamline on the outfit is 100% accurate to the game. I went through the entire game on a mission to unlock her character trophy just to analyze the hell out of it lol.
The harness I made from vinyl as well. I do want to fix it up a bit before I wear it again.
The necklace pendant was made of sculpy clay and painted to look like a wooden carving. The vinyl necklace strap I had on hand already.
- Personal Thoughts:
- After playing RE6 it made me really appreciate Ada's character alot more. Originally I had no real attachment or liking for her (despite the fact I made her RE4 dress ><)This game really made her character stand out more. I really loved her new clothing design overall..and let's be serious, how could I turn down making a pair of pleather pants? :P
- Styling Notes
- I choose natural black cause it has a red/brown shine to it (much like the artwork of Ada has) I straightened it out with a garmetn steamer and cut it to right length. I found out with a few styling methods this wig works amazing for the RE4 Ada version as well. I hairsprayed the entire thing in place.

- Again, Arda never fails in the quality department. I LOVE ARDA WIGS!!!!!!
