Commander Shepard: Cover by LittleBlondeGoth Commander Shepard: Cover by LittleBlondeGoth

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.

Thanks very much, it's my first non Final Fantasy costume. But FemShep is just too badass to not do. :)

Leggings are a good idea, and would also be less hot! Man, this obviously took you forever, great work!
The aging on the N7 stripe is great, and the textures of the armor are very good. The metallic finish with teh matt black base was a great idea, looks good. :)
And finally, the pose and makeup look wonderful :heart:

Heh, yeah it was pretty intense making it. Got it finished the day before I was wearing it to a Con! But I'm so pleased with how it turned out, and I'm glad you liked it too. Thanks! :)

Amazing! You & Si should do a face off in the same picture where it looks like both of you are about to clash. Just a suggestion but the pictures still look great :D
