No Sew Cosplay: Jess from Until Dawn


I didn’t really figure you for the glass half empty type…

So, we’re going to try to finish all of the Until Dawn characters!


Hair Ties: Fortunately, you can get a large pack of purple hair ties for pretty cheap like these ones here. You’ll need two dark purple hair ties for Jessica’s braids.


Jacket: The hardest piece to find for Jessica’s outfit, the jacket offered some real challenges for me mainly due to the color and sleekness of the jacket. The first I was able to find was this one (top picture). My real issue was that the material is not all that rain resistant like Jess’ and the patches are on the chest, versus Jess’ jacket which has them on the sleeve. Finally, I stumbled across this utterly perfect jacket. Unfortunately, the price tag isn’t so perfect. I personally try not to hurt my wallet so much, so the first jacket might be the best choice. Either way, make sure you’re getting a smaller size so that the jacket at the bottom is riding on your hips as much as possible. Jessica’s is super short, after all. This is still yet another alternative, though I didn’t like how light blue this jacket was so I dismissed it.




V-Neck Shirt: Jessica wears a very low cut v-neck purple shirt under her jacket. The shirt must be pretty short as well on her because you don’t see it poking under her jacket. I would probably go with a short sleeve shirt unless you are cosplaying in the winter time. No reason to be drenched in sweat on the convention floor if you can avoid it.


Undershirt: Jessica wears a very short, and tight, white t-shirt with a v-neck that is not as deep as her purple shirt. Fortunately, the shirt I linked already runs small and pretty thin, which is pretty much exactly how Jess’ shirt really is. Because the fabric is kind of thin though, make sure you are wearing white undergarments like Jessica.


Ring: She wears a metal ring with a plain band on her middle finger to her right hand.

Pants: Jessica wears some pretty low cut dark jeans. If you don’t already have these, then you could purchase ones like these. They are noticeably darker blue than the jacket that she is wearing.


Boots: Fortunately, there are a lot of scenes where you get a chance to see Jessica’s boots which made the search a lot easier here. Unfortunately, right off the bat the perfect boots that I found were super expensive. If you don’t mind going slightly off color and style you could get these instead (pictured below) which are a heck of a lot cheaper. If you really want to get that style where she has indents three or four times going up, you could tie a string really tightly to the boot perhaps to get that same look?



Nails: Jessica wears a dark pink almost purple shade of nail polish like this color.

Makeup: This video I found shows how to make a bronzey smokey eye like Jessica’s makeup.

And now, no one should be able to get in the way of you and what you’ve got going on!
