Custom Costume Builds

Mass Effect 2 – N7 Armor Build – Female Update 1

Pattern and cut back panels.

With a heat gun I rounded out the pieces a little more, Dremil sanded the edges and with hot glue, mounted strips of Velcro inside the chest panels where they will attach.

Day 4 Progress shot on the female version.

  1. I was just about to e-mail you about N7 armor, then saw your update on DeviantArt. Holy crap. This is amazing. I want one of these for myself. What would an armor set like this run, cost-wise?

    • Thanks. Not sure on the costs yet. Check back after I finish the costume and I should be able to give a price then.

    Hey, this blog is absolutely amazing. I hope you have a blast at DragonCon. I was looking over everything and was hoping to attempt something simliar myself for next year’s Halloween. What thickness EVA foam did you use for the armor panels? I looked on the blog couldn’t see that info. Thanks!

    Hi there, im just wondering if the male shepard armor templates are gonna be released?

    • I don’t really have any templates to “release” as I make most of them freehand for each suit. I will however soon be making a series of detailed videos which will show how to make the suits including making patterns.

    Hello I am aware that this post is months after you have made this post. I am a newbie when it comes to armor making – this will be my first. I don’t have a heat gun… I was wondering if there was another heat source I could use (perhaps more affordable)?

      a blow dryer works, it’s just more time consuming.

      • A hair dryer CAN cork but I really don’t recommend it. Heat guns are actually pretty cheap (no more than a hairdrier would cost) and will save you a lot of time and grief. As for breast shaping I have seen some trying it with heat guns, but for the best results I recommend heating the sheets in the oven for a good, full, overall saturated heat in the entire sheet of foam.

    How did you form the cup area for the breasts?

    • please refer to the images showing the form I made to shape the breast plates over. The description is there.
