Report article RSS Feed Garrus Cosplay and Tali Props

Cosplayer ammnra built this Garrus outfit that shakes the heavens with its amazingness, as almost everything is spot-on, from the chicken legs to the three-fingered gloves to battle damage to his trademark sensor getup on his weary, alien eye. The thing even lights up, with both the eye sensor and omni-tool (which appears to have been crafted for a Tali cosplayer) packed with LED lights.

Cosplayer ammnra built this Garrus outfit that shakes the heavens with its amazingness, as almost everything is spot-on, from the chicken legs to the three-fingered gloves to battle damage to his trademark sensor getup on his weary, alien eye.

Mask:
Made from a raw/unfinished urethane Garrus statue/bust that he hacked and cut apart to make an articulated jaw mask.

He's hand carved the scars and then spray painted the whole thing. He's 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.

Armor:

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

Since this were he first attempt at armor, he 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!)

Under coated with the greatest primer/paint ever – Spray Appliance Epoxy

Gun:

Nerf Raider with scope from friends long shot. Lots of Dremeling and some hand heat/bent PET plastic and craft foam. The expansion barrels are just chunks of a curtain rod from Bed Bath and Beyond. Spray paint hot glue and some distressing and a lighting system finish it off. Video link in gun photo descriptions.

Gloves:
Basically, he has bound both he's pinky and middle fingers to he's palm.

The pinky is folded in half and taped to he's ring finger to make the side of he's palm blend into he's ring finger, so the gloves actually have 3 fingers and a thumb. The middle finger covered with the same fabric as the back of he's hand. He put the glove on with he's pinky pre-bound with tape and then he's middle finger is bent down "flat" against he's palm and held in place by velcro and straps. That way he can free it when he need actual dexterity.
Not sure if that makes any sense...

Omni-Tool:

Just chunks of PET-G that were hand cut, heated, and bent to form the basic shapes. Rivets and fishing line hold the sections together and form joints so your hand can still move and the lower rings can fold out of your way. To replicate the details, patterns, and raised sections, he cut sections from old keyboards and double stick taped to the outside. For edge lighting the omni-tool, he used 30 right-angle amber LED's and taped them into notches.

Finally, the hard parts are over....Making it and wearing it!

Gotta love Nerf guns, there isn't any sci-fy weapon you can't mod it to replicate.
