Mass Effect 3 - Garrus Cosplay by Nightlyre Mass Effect 3 - Garrus Cosplay by Nightlyre
"Yeah... yeah, I knew this wise ass marine, Jimmy Vega - sounds like a pole-dancer on Omega - always got on my nerves. But the kid was alright. Had guts when it counted."

Firstly, I apologize that our camera isn't that spectacular! We were shooting with the lights lowered to try and pick up the suit's lights better. But here's Garrus, mask and all. The pose just reminded me so much of that scene with him and Vega trying to one-up eachother's stories! More pictures to come soon, after Phoenix Comicon.

There's a couple things I didn't get to (stupid time!), but he's 99% complete - good enough to wear to the show! His jaw moves with my own, and all the lights are now installed and working. The armor is pretty comfortable, though warm, as you can imagine! Of course the biggest convention in Phoenix has to be during the summer, hah.

Edit - Thank you guys so much for all the love and compliments! I really appreciate it! I'm going to be away for Phoenix Comicon for a few days, but I will answer everyone when I get back. :D

Edit #2 - One more quick note before we leave for the convention. I put up a few more photos on my website: [link] I will have better pictures as soon as I can! Enjoy.

would you mind sharing what kind of materials or processes you used to make this, please? I am just getting into cosplaying and I want to make face masks, full head masks and helmets but I have no idea how?

Sure! I actually have a series of blogs on my website with photos of how I made pretty much the whole thing, all linked from this page: www.rednebulastudios.com/?page…  Basically, I sculpt the original piece in oil-based clay, make a plaster mold of it, and cast it in latex. I've since started making turian masks using a silicone mold and casting them in resin, as seen here: www.rednebulastudios.com/?page… The armor is made from a combination of different types of closed-cell foam (EVA and craft foam, along with some pieces from a yoga mat for the larger carapace). A lot of people make armor and helms from foam, so that might be a better place to start looking if you're not used to working with oil-based clay. It can have a bit of a learning curve, but is a lot of fun to work with!

I hope that helps. I'm happy to answer questions too. :)

Thank you! Heh, he might... pictures have gone around the 'net a couple times now! I don't know that he's as into the games as some of the other voice actors, though.

Even so, I think he would appreciate the effort that's gone into this. 
If it's alright with you, I'd like to share the picture on his Twitter. 
I really do think it's incredible. I'm just so blown away.
