Shepard, the first human spectre by Kotowaru Shepard, the first human spectre by Kotowaru
So, my Shepard cosplay is now atlast finnished (or almost, have some minor details I want to fix before attending another con with it)

In the end I'm very satisfied with how it came out, I sadly didn't win a price for it at Uppcon, but I will be back for Närcon in July with a weapon and the minor things fixed.
The build took 2 months too finnish and the cleaning of my basement will probably take another 2 <.<

how did you make that costume?

It's made out of interlocking EVA-foam floormats that have been cut and sanded into shape and then glued together with hotglue and 2 component epoxy, it also has some craftfoam in the dark parts, it's held together with elastics and plastic clips, on the back (hardly seen in an pictures that I've found on the internet there are El-wire running in the circle and the "wings" to make them glow blue.
The parts that are round have been shaped using a heatgun and the shoulders are made out of 3 parts with angled edges.

Jag och min kompis letade efter dig på Uppcon efter att ha sett dig i cosplaytävlingen, men vi var bara där en dag tyvärr så vi hittade dig inte... Så jag var riktigt glad när jag såg dig på Närcon istället! :3 Sjukt bra gjort, du var riktigt cool! :D

Tbh though, it's alot easier than you might think to do an armor like this, this was the first armor I ever made, all my previous csplays have been cloth only so it was intersting to do this for a change 8D

The texture comes from the acctual material and is probably as close to the in-game modle you can get

Sweet! I think I have seen something on youtube from someone who made armor out of that material, always kinda wanted to try it but I was never really sure what costume it might work for... Definitely look awesome here!

I'd say EVA foam is one of the primarily used materials for armors from the Mass Effect universe, the texture and thickness matches that of the in-game armors (atleast ME2/ME3), if you're aiming to make a Fantasy armor that looks to be made out of metal (Like let's say Elven armor from Elder Scrolls games) I don't recomend EVA since it's too thick, I'd use Wonderflex for metal-ish armors rather than EVA, you could probably use thinner craftfoam like 2-3 mm thick if you'd like since Wonderflex is very expensive.

Yeah, I haven't done much sci-fi armor yet but I was considering EVA for that sort of thing... thinking old school Phantasy Star, which is similarly bulky but without the texture. I've had good experiences with Wonderflex / foam core for weapons and styrene / craft foam or just sealed craft foam for fantasy armor.... looking into leather for my next fantasy / metal-looking armor project. Anyhow, thanks for the advice!
