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:

She used this tutorial for the dyeing process:
