Commander Shepard: Ms Effect by LittleBlondeGoth Commander Shepard: Ms Effect by LittleBlondeGoth

Test shoot for my female Commander Shepard cosplay, and a scary close up, looking a little Gillian Anderson-ish. Hrm.

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.

I love this shot.  Tons of emotion in it, it's great.  I can only hope my mass effect cosplay comes out anywhere near this good!

I think the title for this should be "You have come too far." :D
