I’m a big fan of the Silent Hill series since way back. The first time I stepped into that crazy, messed up-town way back in 1999, I was hooked. Of course, at the time I was a preteen and had no business playing such a scary game. Still, thanks to a parental lack of understanding/interest in video games, I was free to slash my way unsupervised through hoards of zombie nurses, all the while uncovering the town’s deep, dark secrets.

Of course, other girls my age were probably busy with something a little more wholesome around that time: the Sailor Moon anime. But what would it look like if you mixed the two? Well…

It seems that dedicated cosplay enthusiasts are able to make even the grossest things cute. Check out this Silent Hill x Sailor Moon cosplay! On the left, we have Sailor Jupiter Zombie Nurse, and on the right, Sailor Moon Pyramid Head.

Pyramid Head is known for having, um, unusual hobbies, so perhaps a little bit of cosplaying as his favourite anime character is how he passes a long evening in Silent Hill. When he’s not poking people with a big stick or swinging around a knife the size of a surfboard, we picture him sitting at his sewing machine crafting an adorable little Japanese school uniform to wear while he stalks unsuspecting victims around town.

As for the nurse, perhaps she’s in on the whole thing, too. You never can tell with the zombie nurses. Sometimes it seems like they’re flirting with you, and then the next thing you know, they’re clawing at your face and shrieking like banshees.

Actually, the cute feel of the uniforms goes pretty well with the grime and decay of the Silent Hill setting. Fans of the series will be familiar with the wacky humour of the series’ many alternative endings.  Not to mention the unlockable costumes.

In fact, one of the things I like best about Japanese horror games is how the developers sneak some wacky humour into them here and there. This cosplay perfectly captures that playful, horrifying spirit.
