The Alyx Vance cosplay we will be focusing on is the outfit worn throughout the game, that includes the brown jacket and grey hoodie. I will put links underneath to the products used t put this costume together, followed by information on the items used as well.
Alyx Vance Brown wool jacket
For the Alyx Vance brown wool jacket, I found on amazon. A beautiful faux leather jacket with faux fur surrounding the collar. The jacket itself was ok. The sizing was accurate for the most part. Although the leather wasn’t real, it still looked and felt pretty good. The wool was soft. Overall a good quality jacket that matched the look of the Alyx Vance cosplay perfectly.
Alyx Vance cosplay black mesa hoodie
For the grey hoodie, she wears, I got on amazon. I could find the east hoodie she uses but the I one I picked was a great fit for the Alyx Vance look. It is made mainly from cotton. This runs small so I would advise you to order a size bigger than what you would normally wear. I found comfortable to wear with no issues with it. it worked with the brown wool jacket.
**update** I came across this from the valve store. I didn’t realise to check their merchandise store for the hoodie but it’s there, the official Alyx Vance black mesa hoodie.
Alyx Vance grey crop top
There is another look that Alyx Vance wears in the game where she doesn’t wear the wool jacket or fleece hoodie, instead, she wears a grey crop top, I didn’t get this but I picked one out for you on amazon. This took me quite a while to find a lot of the crop tops have a think neck strap which doesn’t look like the top Alyx Vance uses. The reviews on amazon seem pretty positive.
The denim jeans Alyx Vance wears, I found on amazon. These are light blue denim jeans that are made from cotton. I found these to be ok,not great if I’m being honest. The quality was ok, nothing amazing. I found them to be quite thin as well. I would suggest you look elsewhere for a decent pair of jeans
White boxer wrap
Alyx Vance wears some white boxer wrap, for this, I got on amazon. From looking at some images of Alyx Vance, the white wrap is around her right hand. The white itself was good and was comfortable to wear. I cannot comment on the durability as I only used it once. The price makes this a worthwhile investment into the Alyx Vance cosplay.
Black fingerless gloves
The fingerless gloves, I found on amazon. A good pair of gloves for the price. They have the open slot that matches Alyx Vance gloves, their fingerless as well. The sizing was pretty good. Overall I’m happy with what I purchased.
To put the finishing touches on the Alyx Vance cosplay we are going to need a pair of brown boots, which I got on amazon. I went for a lace up military style boot as I think it matches the personality of Alyx Vance. The boots were good value and fitted perfectly. The zipper opens and closes perfectly as well. Overall a good pair of brown boots that suit the Alyx Vance cosplay.
