27th July 2012: Face Help! So the main thing about the son of Wesker is that he's ginger! (Hoorah for more ginger characters! xD) and he has his hair VERY short so im afraid the only way around it guys is to cut your hair short and dye it - unless you are some kind of wig MASTER! xD
The only distinguishable feature is his scar obviously =P It is a long straight scar - seemingly from a blade that runs from just below his left eye down to just above his jaw line.
This can be attained by using some awesome stuff called Rigid Collodion! it is a liquid that when applied tightens the skin to five the apperance of scars! fantastic stuff - see the following link for where to get it and how to use it!
Again hope this helps guys =D
27th July 2012: Help for those who want it! So here’s a little thing I threw together to help others create a Jake Muller cosplay without some of the headaches of having to search for this that and the other! =P It’s a relatively simple cosplay that shouldn’t case anyone a problem but use help where help is given right?
1: Brown Leather Braces – You could be mistaken to think this is a leather shoulder holster – it isn’t. I made the same mistake myself at first but upon closer inspection it is a set of simple brown leather Braces which can be found on Ebay for pretty damned cheap! Although you might have to wait an age for delivery xD
2: Large Buckled Belt – A bog standard plain large buckled belt – there isn’t any detail on this so you can easily find one of these in a highstreet clothes shop, Primark is probably your cheapest and best bet! Although notice that he wears it ‘loose’ so the remaining belt length after fastened is out loose so I’d say go for one a size or two up to give you that extra length on the belt.
3: Black short security gloves – Jake wears a pair of black leather gloves but they aren’t you’re average gloves as they actually stop at the wrist unlike a lot of gloves that will finish a little further up just above the wrist or on the forearm. These can be found on Ebay.
4: Brown Leather Double Ammo Pouch – Jake has two sets of double ammo pouches, one of his front left hand side and one on his back right hand side. These can cause some trouble. These can be found on Ebay but are NOT cheap. As the you will be hard pressed to find anything that ISN’T real leather >.< Your best bet is to either go for a cheap alternative such as some Black Molee Double ammo pouches OR make them yourself from craft foam.
5: Brown Leather gun belt – YEHAW! Seems Jake is a bit of a cowboy xD. This you can find easily in most places such as Ebay/Amazon or fancy dress shops. Just be wary of quality as places like Smiffys that make fancy dress gun belts can be a bit cheap or tacky so always go for their ‘Deluxe’ version if you ask me lol
6: Black Long Sleeve V Neck T-shirt – It’s a simple T-shirt that can be found in any highstreet retailer or online. Once you have it you need to cut into the neck line and remove the collar as well otherwise it might look weird xD. The cut needs to be down to around the chest area giving it the ‘flapping open’ look that Jake sports.
7: Black Jeans - Nothing to difficult there. Again, any high street retailer – I recommend Primark – Cheap and Cheerful.
8: Brown Fashion Boots – These are pretty easy to find nowadays too as they seem to be quite infashion atm. See ‘7’ for where to find them.
So basically remember people – Primark is your friend! xD
