The lights are on
The fact that every Shepard is unique to his or her creator gives a bit of flexibility when it comes to cosplay and special ownership over the final result. Check out cosplayer Zonbi’s vision of renegade Commander Shepard below. Who: The CharacterCommander Shepard from Mass Effect 2. I'm wearing one of the female casual outfits available in the game. Why: The DecisionI felt so involved playing Mass Effect 2. Commander Shepard is such a strong character that does whatever it takes to save humanity. I admire that! The more I played, the more I realized how fun it would be to wear a Shepard costume. What: The ProcessIt took about 2 weeks to make the entire costume. It only cost me about 50 dollars to complete it! I used fabric for the costume and EVA foam for the pistol, blue LEDs for the lights, and a little bit of latex for the renegade facial scars. The hardest part was making a pattern from scratchWhere and When: The DebutI first wore the costume at MidSouthCon2011 in Memphis, TN. The photoshoot was located at the Memphis Public library.Links: The CosplayerYou can find me on cosplay.com. The Gallery

only word that comes to mind is beautiful
That's not bad. My friend did a Commander Shepard cosplay as well but looked entirely different than this. I guess that's the beauty of Shepard, there is no "bad" way to represent him/her.
I like the cerberus look!
Weird..she actually looks like my female Shep. You know, I never thought of cosplaying as a character you create. It's obvious she's Shep based on her outfit, but the creative freedom for the body is really cool.
Good effort, though reminds me more of the doctor in ME2.
I can definitely appreciate this one for what it is, but quite below the usual sky-high standards of CosBlog o.o
i rally want a fallout cosplay person.....or another LOD
That's pretty cool.
I would be very pleased for her to save the world
The costume is nice, but I'm not used to seeing Shepard as a female so at first I was like. "Worst cosplay ever." but it's actually pretty decent. Is that gun made out of foam?
Wow this is actaully really well done considering everyone's shepherd is a little different, I'm just not a fan of using foam to make the gun, seems like it would be too fragile.
