Commander Shepard (Renegade) - Mass Effect




This is my first costume. Everything including the gun was made from EVA foam floor tiles. The hardest part was making the templates for each part to ensure a good fit. Once cut out, heat shaping was achieved with either a small time in a low heat oven or a heatgun. The latter being especially good for doing spot areas for fine tuning. I'm a designer by trade so my favourite part of the whole process was the painting. The finish was made using metallic car paint, lacquer and an aluminium touch up pen for the scuffing and wear. It was a huge learning curve and I'm really pleased with the result. So far it's my favourite costume on the Citadel:)
