Huzzah! Finished the chaps! So now you get inflicted with Blue Steel. Goddess, my hair looks relatively sane here. :S
These were more of a trial for my other costume I'm doing (alliance combat fatigues/prologue uniform). Some things worked, others didn't. Emo jeans are Emo so I think I'd wear my other proper pants if I went out in this properly. And I'm annoyed I've lost my muscle tone from tennis or else I'd look more like the Vanguard I feel on the inside, rather than the skinny salarian infiltrator I appear to be. Sigh. Time to go Charge some Brutes to make me feel better.

Sooo, I'm really super pleased with this. Turned out just as I envisioned it, which is....not what I expected. Things don't usually go that well, ya know? But this is perfect and I am so happy.
To give you an idea of it's size, that's a full size bed it's laying on and it nearly covers the entire surface.
So why did I make this? Because I am a huge geek. Also, when I went to Jo-Ann Fabrics the other night to buy felt/etc for plushies they were having a huge sale on fleece! I went over there and my eyes fell on the black and I was just like "I must make an N7 blanket at once or I shall die!" So I did.
Wish I had better pics but I don't have a good camera, so these'll have to do. I know they don't communicate it's incredible softness, but you can imagine it. While you're imagining, it is also in your head canon now that Shepard totally sleeps with a blanket just like this. You're welcome.
