Jill Valentine from Resident Evil 1

Jill Valentine (voiced by Una Kavanagh) is a former member of the Special Tactics and Rescue Service (S.T.A.R.S.), an elite unit of the Raccoon Police Department, in the Resident Evil video game series.  Jill eventually leaves S.T.A.R.S. and co-founds the Bioterrorism Security Assessment Alliance.  Though Jill has had several different costumes throughout the series, her first appearance is one of her most iconic, wearing a blue beret and matching uniform.  In the updated version of Resident Evil 1 released in 2002, Jill’s costume receives a more realistic upgrade, though it maintains many of the same components.  Whichever version you choose to emulate, you’ll want to splurge on a S.T.A.R.S. patch to update your shirt, and make sure you wear fingerless gloves and sturdy combat boots.

Chris Redfield from Resident Evil Village

Chris Redfield (voiced by Jeff Schine) returns in Resident Evil Village, attempting to save Rosemary Winters from an evil bioweapon named Miranda.  This also puts him at odds with Ethan Winters throughout the game.  Chris’ look has been updated since his original introduction in the series.  Whether you decide to go for his more tactical or casual outfit, some of the pieces will remain the same, including the gloves, turtleneck, and boots.  For his more casual look, you’ll pair these with black jeans and a peacoat, while you’ll swap out for a pair of tactical pants and a low-profile chest rig if you decide you’d like to recreate his more military-inspired apparel.  Refill cartridges for an airsoft gun can help fill out the rig for a more complete look.

Chuck Greene from Dead Rising 2

Chuck Greene from Dead Rising 2

Chuck Greene (voiced by Peter Flemming) is a former motocross champion, a widower, and a father that will do whatever it takes to protect his daughter. Sometimes that involves fighting off the undead. Sometimes it involves things a little crazier. Chuck has the skills to handle it, though. And for as long as he can, he’s going to keep his daughter safe.

Chuck Greene is a great cosplay for those who want to be comfortable. He wears black boots, blue jeans, and a motocross jacket in yellow and black. His weapon of choice is the Paddlesaw (when he can’t ride a Slicecycle) but those aren’t exactly easy to make. A kayak paddle is a good start to one, though!

Nick Ramos from Dead Rising 3

Nick Ramos from Dead Rising 3

With no memory of his past and few clues to go on, Nick (voiced by Andrew Lawrence) is one of the youngest and the most mysterious protagonists in the Dead Rising series. He also makes for a great cosplay with the exception of his weapon, the sledge saw, which takes a build all its own to replicate.

Sledge saw aside, a Nick Ramos cosplay is great for people who want something with reusable pieces. A set of coveralls with the sleeves torn off, workboots, and a patch is all you really need for the clothing. A tattoo pen lets you copy the “12” tattoo on his neck, finishing off the whole look.

Princess Pride from MMBN

Princess Pride from Mega Man Battle Network

Although she takes a brief turn as a villain, Princess Pride is a passionate and kind ruler over Creamland. Voiced by Jillian Michaels in the anime, she is better suited to the role of hero and she wears the mantle well.

Princess Pride has two main costume. One is the white dress and crown from the game Mega Man Battle Network 2 and the other is the brown and cream coordinated outfit from both MMBN 5 and the anime.

For the white dress you’ll want something long with short puffed sleeves and a mermaid cut. That is a very specific cut, however, so any white mermaid cut dress and a white shrug can sub in. You’ll also need long white gloves, white tights, and white heels as well as a blonde wig and a silver crown. Jewel on her gown is best recreated with a cosmetic button and some fabric glue though you can use a pin brooch as well if you want to reuse the dress for other cosplays.

For the brown and cream look you can use the same blonde wig while swapping your crown for a brown newsboy cap. A white shirt, brown vest, white thigh highs, and dark brown boots round out most of the clothes while short white gloves act as the only accessories and body tape helps keep the socks in place. The tricky part is her shorts. They are an uncommon style but you can recreate something close to it by blousing the legs of the pants pictured above.
