It’s about that time for yours Resident Evil Village fix. Fortunately, IGN has something for you in the form of some new concept art for the upcoming Survival Horror ditty.
Plus VillageArt Director Tomonori Takano, who shared some concept pieces, also once again cooked for Lady Dimitrescu. To add to his previous revelation about her height, Takano has revealed that the towering vampire’s shoe size is 44 cm (17.3 inches), which is almost double the average woman’s shoe size. Takano designed Lady Dimitrescu’s shoes based on a real pair of high heels, which he scanned and then digitized to match Dimitrescu̵
And yes, he gave a picture of the shoes.
In addition to shoes, Takano also talks about the origin of the villain (in addition to previous Morticia Addams / Elizabeth Báthory info), and said that the team originally had Resident Evil 7‘s Mia “and made her wear a dress and hat” in the early tests. “I thought this would be enough to give her a ghostly quality, but we could not make her feel scary. So we decided to make the character model much bigger. That was the beginning of Lady Dimitrescu. ”
From there, Takano and director Morimasa Sato began to develop the idea of creating a castle environment for Dimitrescu, which was originally completely populated by women. “The original concept was a castle populated only by women,” recalls Sato. “We tried many different things to make the countess scary and feel like a boss character. There were ideas to make her more creature-like as well, but in the end we felt that a tall woman was the most simple but powerful thing we could do. “
