Originally I thought the game version of this costume was very plain and I didn't like the harness that Carlos gives you. Once I saw the movie my whole vision changed and I have to say that I preferred the look in the film to that of the game.
I made this costume back before I had a sewing machine or had any concept of how to use a pattern. For the most part I tracked down all of the costume pieces I would need for the outfit. My search for a decent top took me a few weeks but eventually I found on that I thought was perfect - and it was a steal at $20. The skirt was purchased at a thrift store and I added the gray trim to the bottom, the boots also came from the same store. The gear I used was a different story, for the most part I made most of it or added to existing pieces. The leg holster my Dad gave to me, I just had to add a strap for the leg. The shoulder harness and belt I made out of straps and buckles that I purchased at the craft store. As for the wig that was a gift from a good friend of mine and it is one of my favorites.
