Ito’s Bubble Head Nurses


Bubble Head

In the past few months, there have been some high detailed sculted statues from some well known creatures from Silent Hill 2. Iam talking, of course, about Pyramid Head and Bubble Head nurses.342306-1

However, after the release of the classic versions of those statues, GECCO is releasing new alternate versions, such as Masahiro Ito’s one, a variant from the conventional Bubble Head with original differences such as ” Crimson thight-high boots” which recreates the classic look of the creature once designed by Ito himself, who wanted to keep her very true to the SH2 Original model face.

“This statue is based on a this box art http://mysilenthill.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/12/nurse-drawing.jpg
and I asked to be very true to the SH2 original model face and to change its thigh-high boots color to crimson.”
(Masahiro Ito via Twitter)

This is certainly, more than anything else, a piece of art worth getting, specially when it was designed by the creative mind behind Silent Hill most terrific creatures. Here’s a gallery with some captions of the statue

Exclusive Masahiro Ito’s explanation about Bubble Head Nurse true meaning


sh2-nurse-002

Many theories have been given about the meaning of Bubble Head Nurses. However, Masahiro Ito, the creative mind behind the creatures of Silent Hill 2, comes with a true explanation about some details that not everyone might see in the game while fighting these ominous nurses.

Masahiro Ito shared the following statement with us, via twitter:

Ah…yes, it’s representative of suffocated invalid Mary’s swallen head. The nurse in SH2, she shakes her head like struggling to shake off the covered vinyl. But I don’t mind that player will notice this point or not. Because it’s very difficult to notice. 🙂

(when asked if “Also would it be safe to assume from your tweet, that the nurse is representative of the event when James suffocated Mary?)

The Concept behind “Silent Hill 2 Bubble Head Nurses”


 

 

 

 

Hellooo_nurse!Masahiro Ito, Creature, Art and Background designer in Silent Hill 1, 2 and 3, shares a bit more of what’s behind some of the concepts used for emblematic creatures on the series, such as the well known Nurses that, after making their appearence in the first Silent Hill movie back in 2006 and more recently on Silent Hill: Revelation 3D, released last year, became like trademarks of the franchise.

About “Silent hill 2” Bubble Head Nurse, my originally planned for its head is a semiliquid thing covered with a thin skin like a condom, and it bursts like a water balloon, when it’s shotten.
For the design of its uniform, I had these materials, pictures of the nurse in ”The Exorcist III”, “Jacob’s Ladder” and bondage-inspired fashion’s one, and she wears stockings.
Also, I was thinking a packed blood cells-stand as her weapon, but changed it into a rusted steel pipe. This is homage to the Silent Hill 1.

“Laura Speaks! An Interview with Jacquelyn Breckenridge”


“Ha! You’re just a gutless fatso.”- Laura

Fresh off our Stargate coverage, I’m pleased to present to you an interview with Jacquelyn Breckenridge, the voice behind Laura in Silent Hill 2. Much like Heather Morris, Jacquelyn has remained under the gaming radar since her time spent in Silent Hill. Now, just over a decade later, Jacquelyn’s story can finally be told. A huge thanks to the great Jeremy Blaustein for getting me in touch with her.  With Jeremy getting me in touch with Jacquelyn, and me getting him back in touch with Heather, I think we’re even. Finally, a huge thanks to Jacquelyn for allowing me to interview her. It was a real pleasure.  Thank you! Everyone else, please enjoy.

Original Voice Acting Confirmed for Silent Hill 2 in HD Collection!


We’re proud to announce that Silent Hill HD Collection will offer an option for original voices in Silent Hill 2.  This means fans and newcomers alike can experience the classic horror tale remastered with modern voice performances; as well as the original recordings from 2001.  Producer Devin Shatsky and I have been striving to make this a reality for some time, and it’s exciting to have created the definitive SH2 experience.  We would like to thank all of the original voice cast as well as Jeremy Blaustein, who were all instrumental in making this happen.  Unfortunately, due to factors both technical and logistical, Silent Hill 3 will be presented with new voices only.  Konami and Hijinx are working hard to make Silent Hill HD Collection a valued piece of Silent Hill history, and hope fans new and old look forward to its release in January.

Sincerely,

Tomm Hulett
