Lady Dimitrescu

Pulled from the video game Resident Evil Village, Alcina Dimitrescu is a 1930's inspired, vampiric woman, commanding and powerful.


Creating a beautiful monsteR

I started with her accessories. Her hat is 100% wool, I blocked out my head form in to have the shape matching the reference art. I spent hours and hours steaming the fabric, pressing and shaping into the correct shape. 

Then moved onto the dress. This was a very fun and difficult period draping project. There are ruffles, princess seams buttons, bias draping, everything you could want from a 1920s-1930s dress.

Adding details

Next is the necklace and broach. The centerpiece is resin 3D printed, then painted to match art. The pearls are all strung one at a time and this took a few iterations to get right. The broach I sewed black roses to a piece of wool and whip stitched a broach back to it. Finally the base wig is a lace-front from Epiccosplay wigs.
