Heather Spears puts together an outfit to mimic a Far Cry 5 character costume in this game inspired photoshoot. The results are awesome and it took a lot of effort to pull off. Heather Spears cosplays and games with her sister Sarah Spears. The girls act as a cosplay/gaming duo called “The Spears Sisters”. Their latest inspiration is in the upcoming Far Cry 5 release. The girls always try to do something fun for the games that they are anticipating. This time they put together inspired outfits to feel the presence of Hope County, Montana in the real world.
This post is all about Heather’s solo pictures. The Spears Sisters also did photos together in their duo shots and Sarah has solo shots as well. They made such a big celebration of the release of Far Cry 5 because the series is one of their favorites and they are excited about the release. They have been known to love games with the dramatic presence like Far Cry 5 and have high hopes for the upcoming release after their time playing it during E3 last year.
“I think Sarah thought I was crazy. It took a while for me to convince her of my ‘vision’. I don’t think she was sold until I was setting up my tripod at the top of the mountain. I wake up every morning with some kind of crazy crap to try to sell her on. So, I didn’t blame her for thinking it sounded weird. It was a hike to get to where I wanted and I had the expensive, heavy equipment to bring. I took the wooden chair from our dining room and our old TV tray.” Heather laughs, “She saw me picking beer bottles out of the trash and making this mock Molotov. And it wasn’t weird at all (sarcastic) ripping up some of my scrap fabric and calling it a ‘Table Cloth’. Sarah just sort of walked away and waited for the whole thing to pan out.”
Far Cry 5 Character Costume by Heather Spears
Heather Spears put together this outfit to look like her own take on the character Nick Rye. She didn’t want to cosplay the character directly because she doesn’t know him well enough yet. Heather only cosplays characters she feels a connection with so she went the reserved rout of mimicking him. She did acquire his hat and uses that as a symbol to let fans know she is taking a shot at a Far Cry 5 themed shoot.
Heather rarely does themed shoots in costumes that she doesn’t hand make. There was no way for her to make her Far Cry 5 character costume. This is one of those rare instances she didn’t make it but she has a good reason. She hasn’t been able to sew much for fun because she is currently working on making her sister’s wedding dress. The girl is also making all of the bridesmaid dresses for the wedding. Heather wasn’t about ready to let the release of one of her most anticipated games pass without celebrating it in some way through so she hunted down fitting outfits and made the props to go along with the shoot. She claims that most of the effort came in with putting everything together, getting to the spot and taking the pictures this time. The cosplayer cannot wait to work on costumes again once the wedding stuff is out of the way.
