No Sew Cosplay: Max from Life is Strange


I take photos. Of me, the world, everything. It may sound sad, but I have a blast.

Jacket: You want to make sure that whichever hoodie you get is a small size with thin material. Fortunately, this hoodie here actually has lots of positive reviews and they say that it is a pretty thin material. Max’s hoodie is a light grey to medium grey color so you could also go a bit darker if you prefer.


Shirt: I absolutely love artists on Etsy. It’s very easy a lot of times to find a shirt already designed with a specific look to it from your favorite video game, show, etc. Max’s shirt is no exception as an artist named Chempiona has designed her Jane Doe shirt. I particularly like this one because of the color being a washed out pink and the shirt cut.


Bracelets: Max seems to be wearing two different types of bracelets. I’m not sure what type of bracelets exactly she is wearing. Silicone bracelets though are pretty easy to use though and not that expensive. You’ll need a teal one and a red one. Though to keep it cheaper, you could technically get the turquoise one that matches the red bracelet.


Bag: Like most college students, Max is using a canvas messenger bag. It’s a very specific one, however, with a dark brown top and a tan to beige bottom. I really liked this one here though the top is actually leather. It also seems like something a college student/photographer would have.


Pants: I would make sure to get a pair of jeans that have a washed out look around the knees with a regular to skinny fit. If you don’t already have jeans that match these, then a pair like these should do nicely! Make sure to roll up the bottoms a tad to make a cuff.


Shoes: Max’s shoes may be black converse, but they have a very specific design to them as well. You can actually get converse shoes that are hand painted with all kinds of cool designs, but you’re looking at spending a lot on a pair of converse shoes and still not having it exact. Fortunately, I stumbled across this reddit page where someone took the time to actually get the design clear enough. Your best bet is to get plain black converse and design something similar with fabric paint! Otherwise, you can find painted shoes on Etsy but not having them painted works as well.


Yes, score!

  1. This is awesome! Can’t wait to get this outfit for my daughter’s next cosplay. By the way, it seems the teal bracelet link is wrong – it links to the jeans.
