Cosplayer: BladeyCakes

Variant: N7 Armour

Status: Complete

Condition: Not Set

11th July 2014: Shep in a box How the heck do I transport this?

This was nearing completion at this point C:

11th July 2014: Thigh Armour DEM LEGS

11th July 2014: Painting! Lookie 8D

11th July 2014: Mass Progress Incoming Sorry guys - spam spam spam~~

26th June 2014: Remade Gauntlets Because the old ones were my first try with the dremel, so I decided to try again with more practice under my belt!
Quality jump was ridiculous!

26th June 2014: Bicep Armour Just needs sealing and finishing C:

26th June 2014: Boobies tho /whispers/
Boobies

17th June 2014: Broke a Needle, Drank some tea... Buckles and straps are coming along nicely, though~

With these done (alas I'll need to buy more, but at least now I know~), I can start fitting the already finished pieces to myself, and the base pieces, which I can then shape other armour over! Should help speed the process of everything a bit C:

17th June 2014: IT GLOWS /whale noises

IT GLOOOOOOOWWWWSSSSS!!???!!!

Need to neaten up the insides but I like how this is likely to look when it's all done properly 8D Time to get making straps for my arm pieces, so I can do test fitting on those tonight and tomorrow~~
Then it's legs >:C
Saving the awkward that is the torso and back for last haha

11th June 2014: Progress on the lady lumps I find this photo painfully hilarious and idek why. Boobs, probably.

But they're getting there~ will be shaping them a bit more by hand so that they 'curve under' a bit more for shape, but generally pleased with how this turned out C: alas the template I'm using didn't work very well for this, so I'm going to have to do some self-editing to get my own breastplate to work, but that shouldn't be too hard!

Here's hoping neither one is wonky else when it comes to putting the detailing on them it's gonna be pretty obvious xD

8th June 2014: General Build Progress Today was mostly prop day, so working on my M-77 Paladin pistol, but I did a bit here and there on armour - some stuff went kinda wrong, and for some reason the 'weave' on one of my foam sheets is different to the rest, and I didn't notice? So one thing I made has to be redone haha, but that wont take long.

Pauldrons are coming along, though - I smoothed down the section that's going to have craft-foam laid over it, to make a neat base for the paint-strips. Woop

7th June 2014: Rifle Inner-Base For shape, and as something to build over - cut out of two sheets of Acrylic board that were then hot-glued together~

Much happy ;w; it's huge!

7th June 2014: Gauntlet Progress Probably going to remake the 'blocks', or at least one of them (this one haha) because I have a better idea of how to shape them now I've fiddled more with the dremel and heat gun, but as a first try with the equiptment, this didn't turn out bad imo!

7th June 2014: Supplies How they dwindle. But these mats rock, I will definitely use them again for ME3 armour C: ...on the bits I... you know. Don't plate in alluminium haha

1st April 2014: Ouch, my finances... Finally bit the bullet and just went ahead and bought 24 yoga mats to begin making this mofo... Might need more, idk.

Thinking I might start with the more 'simple' parts of the costume over the next two weeks or so to ease myself into this project, though my EDI is being lovely and offering to help me brainstorm the worst of it - so wig, as long as it arrives soon (hoping my missed parcel today was that), and likely my M-8 Avenger rifle will be the first items off my list.

Wish me luck guys!
