Mass Effect Female Shepard cosplay - for Elizabeth DeLoria
Because I’m filled with hang ups with modelling, but I like to make things. Elizabeth is all about channelling Commander Shepard but the whole chroming with cans of solvents and talking to walls isn’t really her thing.
Perfect team. Yup, we are. Two months of work, 130km in travel (don’t ask), we are here and we are ready to save the universe.
Let’s just pretend it’s a polyvore. But with shorter arms and worse focus. Mostly because I did this on a chair and it’s still a day post earthquake and I’m kinda freaking out. Wouldn’t it be terrible if I had to have my arms reset because I’m trying to be Hipster Shepard? It would be. I would be the only casualty in the entire little earthquake.
(here for a high res one, because this is a true polyvore at heart. The poly stands 30 bits not counting the extra lights).
And a quick look as a 3D thing because it’s a 3D cosplay! And it’s nowhere near as blurry!
And it lights up! Both as paragon and renegade!
So pretty much this. Mostly made out of pool foam (oh the learning curve), lots of poor usage choices, followed by more poor usage choices, then a bit more. My thumbs turned into sandpaper, but sandpaper didn’t turn into thumbs. Found the most potent silver finger anyone could imagine, and decided that if I need my life saved I’d go to Dimmy’s. The velcro are strong, the anti-gravity repellent field of the foam is even stronger, and they might even out live me. Lastly, garden mesh is your second best friend in the world. Liquid rubber is your best friend.
So if you are going to Melbourne Comic Con on 30th June and 1st July, go and say hi to Elizabeth! In fact, as someone who’s pretty unhappy with most things they do, I’m proud of this. Go and say hi and tell Elizabeth how awesome she is as Commander Assbutt Shepard, or I will beat you up for her.
May the Galaxy be a pleasant place for you. May you never have to drive up hill in a Mako for rest of your life.
Peace and peas.
