Sheva Alomar from Resident Evil 5

Sheva Alomar (voiced by Karen Dyer) is a Bioterrorism Security Assessment Alliance agent who first appears in Resident Evil 5.  As part of the West African branch of BSAA, Sheva is assigned to help Chris Redfield navigate Kijuju in order to stop the sale of a powerful bioweapon.  Sheva is a versatile agent, making her an excellent ally.  Sheva’s costuming is in line with her profession and role in the game.  She wears sturdy boots and green pants, with a plethora of belts and harnesses to hold her supplies and weapons.  Her camisole top includes a light blue and white pattern, so look for a tank top that has similar colors or the same cut.  She also wears forearm guards, fingerless gloves, and a colorful necklace.  A red tattoo pen and a steady hand are your best bet for recreating the tattoo on her left bicep.

Zoe Baker from Resident Evil 7: Biohazard

Zoe Baker (voiced by Giselle Gilbert) is a character in Resident Evil 7: Biohazard.  Zoe’s parents and brother are victims of Eveline’s mind control, which Zoe manages to evade by reading a letter from Mia Winters.  She helps Mia’s husband Ethan escape her family’s clutches, which eventually results in punishment in the form of crystallization by Eveline.  To recreate Zoe’s look, you can either choose to dress as she does herself, or emulate her crystallized form.  The first is fairly simple, requiring loose-fitting jeans, a tank top, and loafers.  If you’re up for the challenge of being crystallized, a rhinestone-studded bodysuit with a white wig and makeup to match can help replicate the creepy and ethereal appearance from the game.

Ada Wong from Resident Evil 4

Ada Wong (voiced in RE4 by Sally Cahill) is a character from the Resident Evil franchise.  She has appeared in several iterations throughout the course of the series.  In Resident Evil 4, Ada wears an embroidered dress with a high thigh slit.  There are a few ways you can choose to recreate her appearance, including buying a replica dress.  Otherwise, you can opt for a simpler version or a plain red dress with a similar silhouette.  You can also choose to wear either flats or heels depending on which you prefer.  Be sure to top the outfit off with a thigh holster and a prop gun, as Ada’s work as a spy means she’s always armed.

Carla Radames from Resident Evil 6

Dr. Carla Radames (voiced by Courtenay Taylor) is the person responsible for the creation of the C-Virus in the Resident Evil video game franchise.  In Resident Evil 6, Dr. Radames undergoes a transformation as part of Derek Simmons’ Ada Project, which turns her into a doppelganger of Ada Wong.  In her new appearance, Dr. Radames has short black hair and wears a blue dress with red scarf and belt.  She also uses Ada’s signature Hookshot weapon.  When seeking a gun to replicate the one she uses in the game, look for something futuristic-looking and mostly silver in color.

Ada Wong from Resident Evil 6

Ada Wong (voiced by Courtenay Taylor in RE6) has gone through several different iterations (and outfits) since she was introduced to the Resident Evil franchise.  In RE6, she’s back with a slightly more practical look for her chosen profession.  To recreate her appearance in this version, you’ll need black leather gloves, pants, and stiletto boots, as well as a red button-down shirt left open, with the sleeves rolled and the collar popped.  A real crossbow is likely outside the budget for a costume, so stick with the pistol worn in her shoulder harness, or opt for a smaller, more toy-like version instead.

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.
