Costume Information

Cost : About £150
Time Taken : A couple of months

Though I'm a much bigger fan of the aliens in ME such as Mordin or Garrus, Mordin would be a LOT of work and Garrus would be just about as difficult and time consuming.

Making this armour fit properly is going to be the hardest thing to do :/

This costume would be impossible without power tools XD

The quote for this costume is: 'Once you have a Dremel anything is possible, including mortal injury'

So far this isn't true, I hope to come out of the construction of these costumes without injury XD

Garrus IS awesome and about ten times harder to do :p Doesn't mean that I won't attempt Mordin or Garrus at some point but I may actually get the Shepard armour finished for Ayacon XD

excellent...lemme know if you decide to, i estimate Thane'll take about 12-18 months from start to finish due to all the learning/experiments involved!

and yes yes i suppose that is true ;)

Chest armour is looking great so far. I'm assuming the other one is the female Shepard chest armour not some kind of weird butt armour :P

Good luck, I really hope you get it all done and if you've got it on at Aya I'd like to get a photo!

Totally loved seeing this in person even if it was brief! xD i like how we were cowering from the rain cause of wigs and makeup and you were cowering in fear of everything from the rain xD
