Test shoot for my female Commander Shepard cosplay.

I've wanted to make FemShep for a while, but never really had the confidence in my armour making ability. Having tackled Fran though (a baptism of fire if ever there was one), I thought the time had come.

There are patterns floating around for the ME2 versions of Shepard, but I prefer her appearance in the third installment, which meant it was back to the drawing board. Consequently most of the patterns for my FemShep were done from scratch, but some were bastardised versions of Julian Bleeks' PDFs.

My undersuit is comprised of a black compression top and matching leggings rather than a wetsuit - I thought it'd be a bit easier to get in and out of. Otherwise, it's a traditional craft foam build. Black EVA foam floor tiles with some thinner, 2mm craft foam for detailing.

I didn't think that the foam alone was a good enough colour to leave unpainted, so everything has been sprayed with a few different coats of car paint. I think it gives a better, more metallic finish anyway, so I'm happy. In the end, it was built up with matt black as a base, then Ford Midnight Grey to get the metal effect. Dinks and weathering comes from a little aluminium colour.

It looks amazing. At first glance I thought this was a screen from the game, or a digital model. Fantastic job with the armor. The detail is just incredible.

I LOVE how that looks with the car paint! I think yours and Si's are the best I've seen because of that. It really gives it that real metal look to it that many of the foam armor sets are just lacking. Absolutely fantastic job! Bravo!

Thank you, glad you like it! I'm really pleased with the colour of the paint - neither of us wanted it to look like foam, so we spent a while trying to find the right finish for them. I recommend making friends with your local car shop. ;)
