Mirror’s Edge is a puzzle-platform video game. Created by EA DICE and published by Electronic Arts in 2009. Faith Connors, the main protagonist, is a courier who delivers encoded messages while evading the government watchful eye. As faith, you must traverse through rooftops, ventilation shafts and across treacherous locations. Faith uses the expressive style of parkour to make her way through these locations. Mirror’s Edge decided critical acclaim from critics, praising its uniqueness and fluid gameplay. It was however not without negativity, criticise its weak story and short length.
The Mirror’s Edge cosplay we will be focusing on will be the main protagonist, Faith. I will add all the necessary information below to complete this Mirror’s Edge costume. This will include links to the items used and descriptions of the items used.
The Eye Liner, I went for Maybelline New York as it is a brand that I like. You can get it on amazon. You need the eyeliner for the left eye makeup. I followed a youtube video for this, which I will link here. The eyeliner itself, for the price, is fantastic. It’s not waterproof but it manages to stay put all day provided you don’t rub it. Overall I’m very happy with my purchase and for the price, I don’t think anything can beat it.
Mirror’s Edge Cosplay black tank top
For the faith costume black tank top, I needed to find one that had white stripes down the side, so I decided to go with an Adidas tank top because there trademark design usually involves 3 white strips. I didn’t take me long to find one that more or less matched faith’s tank top. It is a low cut with a racer back. It is made from primarily of polyester. It is a good quality top that suited the Mirror’s edge cosplay. I only wore it for the costume so I cannot give an opinion other than what I used it for.
The White pants she wears, I got on amazon. I went for snow pants because it best represented the pants the mirror’s edge cosplay. It has an elastic waist along with slots for a belt to accommodate a range of sizes. it feels very comfortable and is made very well. I ordered a medium and I had no problem with sizing. Overall a great pair of pants.
Red fingerless gloves
For the red fingerless gloves, I got on amazon. These mirror’s Edge style gloves are made from lambskin leather. They have a snap enclosure to ensure a snug fit. For sizing, I followed the advice of one of the reviews I quote her here
“To find the correct size you have to measure the circumference of the widest part of your hand, for anyone having trouble with this.”
I only used these for the Mirror’s Edge cosplay but I can see myself getting another pair, probably in black or brown. I highly recommend these gloves.
Print tattoo, place paper on wood or book to not damage surface underneath, cut the black parts out using a Stanley knife or sharp tool. place the design over the arm, making sure it doesn’t move and paint in the cut areas. wait to dry and remove paper slowly.
In the Mirror’s edge cosplay, Faith wears a sweatband up around the right elbow. I got one on amazon. It quite a thick sweatband as I couldn’t find a thinner version but it still works great. It is made from a very soft material that feeling very comfortable. Overall a nice addition to the Mirror’s Edge cosplay
Red Adidas shoes
Faith wears a pair of red running shoes, I went with a pair of Adidas red shoes. These have the three strips on the sides that complement the black tank top nicely. As for the shoes themselves, they are a little overpriced on amazon so I would recommend you buy them from the Adidas website if you can find them. They are a great shoe in my opinion. they fit very nice and are quite comfy.
The black wig, I got on amazon as well. Its listed as a men’s wig But I think its unisex. I picked it purely because of the positive reviews it got. The wig was the perfect look for faith in my opinion as it was the perfect length. The quality of the fibres where very good. Great wig, quite happy with it.
The yellow messenger bag, I found on amazon. This is as close a match I could find that resemble the Mirror’s Edge cosplay bag. It has black accents just like faith’s. The bag is very well made with quality material used. The strap is fairly comfortable for the most part. Overall I’m happy with my purchase, especially for the price I bought it for.
Black elastic band
To put the final touches on the Mirror’s Edge cosplay outfit, We need two elastic bands for the legs of the trousers. I went for some headband for this. I put them on twist it then looped in over the leg again to get the desired look. A Very strong headband that did the job nicely.
