ME3: FemShep by MissCordie ME3: FemShep by MissCordie
Finally it's complete! Emmy and I slaved over this costume for countless hours, and it was a privilege to be able to wear it around Otakon!
Thanks to Eurobeat Kasumi Photography for the impromptu photoshoot! Luckily, I was able to borrow the M8-Avenger for the shoot from a buddy of mine, as we haven't had time to make my guns yet, so many thanks go out to him as well!
A last bit of thanks goes out to :iconzaidb: for doing my scar makeup for me, it was so convincing in person that I had multiple people ask me if it was real!

Costume description:
While we didn't keep an accurate count of how long we spent on this costume, Emmy and I spent well over 100 hours on it.

:iconemilycrossing: was responsible for the patterning, heat forming, and base foam work when putting the armor together. She patterned each piece by hand, created the piece out of foam, and attached it all together to get it as form fitting as possible on me. She also did the wiring for the LED's in the backpack.

:iconmisscordie: was responsible for all of the detailing on the costume. This includes all dremel work, sealing the foam, craft foam details, painting, weathering, harnessing, etc.

We both have such different skill sets that this really was an ideal project for us to not only learn, but also utilize those skills to produce something above and beyond what we could have done individually. I'm forever grateful to Emmy for being willing to help me tackle such a large project, and it wouldn't have been half as good as it is without her assistance.

This is the best Shepard cosplay I've ever seen! Not only the armor is perfect, but you, the modell is the perfect choice for portraying Shepard. Just by look into your eyes I can feel the inner power of a Spectre. I've seen other Shep cosplays, but I always felt the model didn't fit well. But this cosplay seems like a perfect fusion of the outfit and the model portraying the first human Spectre. I featured this cosplay in my journal here. I hope you don't mind

I like how everything seems to fasten on with QR buckles. A certain scene in Aliens always reminded me how important it can be to quickly get your body armour off.

What's the black undersuit thing you're using, there? Is it a catsuity-leotard sort of affair, normal clothing, or something else?

I have to ask, how comfortable it is to sit and move around in that rig. :?
Reply
:iconmisscordie:
MissCordie Featured By Owner Aug 2, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
It's actually not too bad! I can't sit in it, but I can pop the hip armor off really fast if I want to and it's super easy to get back on. But I've got nearly a full range of movement so I'm able to kneel, go up and down stairs, and most importantly fist pump with very little trouble.

Also, possible TMI but we also accounted for bathroom breaks too, so that's super easy as well!

Hmm, smart. :nod:
(Well I want to make a suit of sci-fi armor too. Though I'm doing Star Wars first (even though I wanna be an N7 trooper :tears: )

You can kneel and do stairs? NICE! :highfive:
Lol, fist pump? :XD:

Uh....well....bathroom breaks are VERY import...ant? ^^;

Fist pumping was the sticking point for me. You can't cosplay Commander Shepard if you can't do the Shepard Shuffle at the rave XD
