Bioware’s N7 Day, a day to celebrate all things Mass Effect, was on November 7, but we’re extending the special occasion by a day to look at Jenna Lynn Meowri’s Tali’Zorah costume. The quarian is a member of Commander Shepard’s squad in the game, and she has quite the memorable look. Jenna made the costume using a suit designed by Frontier Costuming. Tali’s helmet looks like the most difficult part of the costume. Jenna explained the basics of crafting it:
Made a base visor sculpt from Monster Clay using the helmets inner measurements as a general guideline. Vacuum formed the visor sculpt with 1/32″ PETG plastic and trimmed down the excess. I then dyed it with a plastic friendly purple dye until it reached the shade I wanted.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
