Link Crossplay

Geek 1: Where did you get the sword and shield?
Geek 2: Some redhead dressed like Link came over, took off all her clothes, and said I could have whatever I see.
Geek 1: Good choice, the clothes probably wouldn’t fit.

Aria T’Loak (Mass Effect)

Yond as Aria T'Loak from Mass Effect 2. Aria T'Loak was one of my fav characters of Mass Effect 2 . She's Omega after all. It was my first expirience with liquid latex. I'm quite proud of the results.It could be better but first time is a first time...

Garrus Vakarian

Garrus Vakarian (from Mass Effect) by Chris Myles
I hand carved the scars and then spray painted the whole thing. I airbrushed in the scars, details and shadows and hand painted on the "war paint." Visor made of craft foam and a hand cut/heat bent PET strip and 2 LEDs with super glued on Objet(Eden 350) icons.

Made from armature wire/mesh, upholstery foam, plaster, and fiber glass resin.

Since this was my first attempt at armor, I tried a hand full of different methods on each section of armor. Method that worked the best was an under form of mesh/armiture with streched foam on top. Mix (1:1ish) Modge Podge with flexable Joint Compound to make thick MP and coat foam. Light sanding, paint and distress to finish. Armor looks hard but is still kinda foamy. For really flexable armor just use foam coated with flexable glue. Light sanding, paint, yada-yada...

Lighting system has 5 channels with 8 modes (no fancy micro controllers, just a hacked LED christmas light set). 59 (49 blue and 10 for the UV face lighting) LEDs in the armor (Hooray 19 hours of wiring/soldering!)

Check out Ammnra's "How I Did It" Costume Video, his Cosplay.com gallery, and his Flickr gallery.

The tights were made with a simple tights pattern, and for the gloves I traced my hands and left a little seam allowance and sewed them together. It's spandex so it stretches, but I made them a wee small so it's a tight fit. The dress part was draped on a dress form and tailored down to fit me. So I can't be of much help on that. The details are heat and bonded on. The cape is basically a big triangle, that is folded in half and at the top of the triangle is the neck whole where I added a collar that stays pinned together. The belt is just a long piece of foam with yellow spandex wrapped around it and a circle foam piece with spandex covering it glued on top. The mask is just craft foam and elastic, with a piece of thing white fabric glued over the eye wholes.
