Sherry Birkin in Edonia by straywind Sherry Birkin in Edonia by straywind
This shoot was something I’ve had in mind since I first played Resident Evil 6 and I decided to Cosplay Sherry. I really wanted to do a winter snow shoot given that Jake and Sherry spend a good chunk of their campaign outside in the snow. I got a day off from work in February thanks to a major snow storm here in Toronto and my awesome friend Stillvisions got in touch with me and asked if I wanted to do shoot. In a matter of just a couple of hours I got into costume and we met up. We took these photos not far from my house in a little wooded area. It's actually on the other side of a small grove where Stillvisions shot my Halloween Rei costume last fall.

We were faced with a couple of feet of snow so it was pretty tough conditions to work with. My boots had heels so it was really treacherous to walk around and the wind and snow was still coming down while we were shooting which was really hard on us. I actually had to call it quits with this shoot fairly quickly because despite this costume being fairly warm, my ears, toes and fingers became quite numb. It was worth it for the photos though! Another awesome dream shoot in the books. X3

My only regret is that I didn't have a Jake. :( My friend :iconthe-letter-jay: (who Cosplayed Edonia Jake with me at Youma) is from the US so doing a shoot together in the winter would be tricky. I wish I knew a local Jake. I need more local RE Cosplay friends. (^^);;

Thanks again to my wonderful friend :iconammiechan: for making my coat for Sherry! I absolutely love it! (^_^) It's been a real blast Cosplaying Sherry. I'm looking forward to wearing my China Sherry costume next month at Anime North.

I have so much gratitude for :iconstillvisions: going out and shooting with me on that cold day in February. He also took some photos of me in my Lisa Garland (Silent Hill Shattered Memories) costume so it was quite the busy photoshoot day!

Thank you so much! Ammie's patterning on the coat was really something else. I had so much fun Cosplaying Sherry.

I actually got it in my head that you were referring to my most recent picture (my Evangelion costume that I made). This technically was a pretty quick costume since Ammie made my coat. Except getting the boots. lol The boots that I ordered got lost in the mail twice and I had to find them somewhere else. That made the costume take a while to come together. :3

I was talking about all of your outfits (?).

Nah, I sincerelly LOVE your costumes. I don't know so much about Silent Hill but I admire your cosplays of RE :).

Thanks so much! (^_^) Stillvisions was a real trooper for this shoot. I had mentioned wanting to do a snow shoot, but he was the one that asked if I was up for braving the elements on that day. He was really patient with me as I struggled to pose.

The photos turned out really well and I'm glad that I did it, but I don't know if I would want to shoot in the snow like that again. XD

It's nice that Leon's campaigns are set in the summer so you'll never have to worry about the snow for your photoshoots. (^^);;

That's very nice of you to say! It means a lot to me that I was able to inspire others. Sherry has been such a fun character to Cosplay. I was really happy when I heard Capcom was bringing her back for RE6. (^^)

You look so beautiful in this photo! I love the shot, the background, you, your costume...wig...everything! Really nice work. Ammie did a great job with the sewing, it looks so professional I thought it might have been bought! Kudos to her.

Thanks very much! It was a pain in the butt to do this shoot with the conditions we were working with, but I couldn't be happier with the final results! :3

Ammie did such a fantastic job with the coat. She knows how to make things look perfect. I'm glad I asked her about the commission otherwise I don't think I would have been able to make the coat. XD

It was awful! I was slightly worried about frostbite after coming inside from this shoot. (^^);; Thankfully after a few minutes of warming up I was ok. Anyway, it was worth the pain for these photos! I was a little worried at the time that none of these photos would turn out (since I could hardly hold a pose) but Stillvisions did an amazing job with this photo set. I love them. (^_^)

Thanks Ammie! (^^) As much as I hate winter and snow storms, it was nice to be able to get photos of Sherry! After this shoot, though, I was ready for winter to be over. XD Glad winter is finally over... I hope!
