Timeflip The Second: Silent Hill Cosplay

There seems to be a trouble with time, yet again, and instead of the following part in the Time Capsule Series, the sands of time have dropped on a Silent Hill. Though there weren’t many cosplays (contrary to rumored belief, Silent Hill is NOT that popular among the manga/anime crowd, who usually puts its cosplaying skills to work), the ones we were witness to made the whole thing worth our while. Speaking strictly for myself, this party was one of the best in terms of themed photography. Le Ciel, Katya and Sarcana must be commended on orchestrating a Silent Hill show, during which, dressed with the tunes of Akira Yamaoka and aided by strobe and laser, they reenacted popular motifs of the Silent Hill nurses, as well as one of the most widely known scenes: that of Pyramid Head massacring the nurses and dragging them away. The show had elements from Silent Hill 2, 3 and Origins. Special congratulations go to Countess Bathory and Evil Lolita (the latter a WiP member, last I knew – can’t know for sure now), who were behind the timing and choreography.

You will notice that the photos, especially the Silent Hill ones, are a bundle of Photoshop joy: this is due, in part, to the fact that I wanted to experiment with a few of them, but more largely to my wanting to keep with the Silent Hill feel and color palette. I hope you like them. If, by some freak chance, they are too dark for you to see anything, I would appreciate a note, that I may possibly ameliorate them. Welcome then, to Alchemilla Hospital. We hope you enjoy your stay.

I believe that the most memorable punchlines of the party were:

(1) Addressed to me: “Dude, I saw an L with boobs!”

(2) Me: Now, who the fuck is that chick dancing in the cage? (Stupid question: there were two of them).

New Guy: Uh, that would be my girlfriend.

Me: Ah, OK (I show him picture in camera): this one?

New Guy: Er, nope.

Me: How about this one?

New guy: Oh, yeah, that’s the one. Do you have EVERYONE’s picture in there?!

To which, I believe, no answer is required. It was a very fun night, much contrary to my anticipation (I can’t really stand Akira Yamaoka for very long) and of surprising artistic value. I hope you enjoyed the photos, I hope some of you will comment here to help me fill any blanks and questions you have seen and finally, I have a confession to make: I do not know the first thing about Silent Hill, apart from pictures and some artwork, so if you see anything that doesn’t gel, first blame the internet and second, tell me what it is so I can fix it.

Perturbed dreams,

Speedgrapher
