Matriarch Benezia


Costume Information

Cost : so far £200

Matriarch Benezia, the mother of Liara T'soni and features as a 'boss' character in the first Mass Effect game. She is voiced by Marina Sirtis of Star Trek Next Gen fame.

The costume will be made from various fabrics, with the headdress made from covered wonderflex.
Since the head is covered i plan to wear my Liara Headpiece under the headdress.

I have new blue contacts for Benezia as her eyes seem a paler blue than Liara's in ME3

This costume was actually debuted at Dragon Con in Atlanta USA, but first Uk appearance is MCM Expo oct 2014

headdress front (Posted 11th August 2013)

front of headdress showing crown part. this part will be attached with strong velcro so it can be removed for travelling

Headdress made from wonderflex and thick jersey. crown part at front also made from wonderflex

planning (Posted 24th March 2013)

I am going to make this costume around a corset, as benezia's costume has very low cleavage. A cupped corset will give same effect but with safety of no wardrobe malfunction!Photo shows one of my corsets i'll probably use.
