Commander Valkyria Shepard at gamescom 2012/Cologne/Germany. Crafting that armor was... something. It was nice wearing it, despite the hot weather. x.x The next one definitely needs thinner material. What I really mean is, it is awesome being that wonderful heroine for one day or two. So let's take back earth. Now!
This is our Mass Effect group at PAX East along with a few extra crew members from the Normandy.

Alright, I'm happy to say I made some progress this week!
- Attached the lower back to the central torso. I had to leave the outermost edges unattached for now. The chest core was a bit too difficult to get in and out of. I am going to install small clasps for the tips to lock the edges in place.
- Attached the upper back weapon mounts. Nothing fancy here, just used a sheet of black 3mm foam as a buffer to attach the part. The holes for the lights need to be drilled in.
- Created the upper legs. I thought these would take longer honestly. I have some painters tape holding the shape until the strapping and buckles arrive later this week.
Not much left to build now. - Still need to finish heat forming the visor. - Need to remake the elbow plates. I'm not happy with the current ones. - I have to create the padding for the gloves. - And I need to make the boots of course.
Thanks for reading and let me know if you have any questions!
