How to Dress as a Little Sister (Bioshock)


I'm a huge fan of the Bioshock games, for their amazing stories, fantastic gameplay and iconic visuals. I especially love the adorable Little Sisters (I've never been able to play as an evil character, they are just too cute!). They have a very recognizable look that would make a great costume for both conventions and Halloween, so that is why I made this post. Let's take a look at how to dress up as the Little Sisters!

Blue Stripe Cosplay Costume
First of all, you'll need the cute blue stripy dress that the Sisters wear, and as look would have it you can find a perfect replica of it on the right. It even comes with a pretty white hair bow to do your hair up with. 

Now that you have the costume, you'll need to do up your make-up to look gaunt and spooky just like the ADAM guzzling cuties themselves. At the bottom of this post is a fantastic tutorial on how to get the Little Sister look, so follow that and you'll look great!

Beyond the makeup, you'll need to give your eyes that creepy, ADAM overdose yellow glow. You can achive this with what is know as full-eye or 'sclera' contact lenses - there's a great yellow pair on the left that will work perfectly for this look.

Last but not least, you'll need the Little Sister's iconic ADAM syringe to go searching for fallen angels with. Sadly no one is selling this prop on the net, but it's not actually that tough to make for yourself. Here's a fantastic guide to making you own Little Sister syringe with bits and bobs from your garage.


So there you have it! That is my guide to dressing as the Little Sisters from Bioshock 1 and 2. I hope you have a ton of fun dressing up!
