Finished Mass Effect Tali’Zorah Costume Is Ready for a Mission
Back in March, we shared a look at Duo Queue Cosplay’s nearly completed Mass Effect costume. A member of the cosplay duo has now finished Tali’Zorah and worked with a photographer to get quality photos of her hard work. She explained what the build process was like:
My mask has a voice activated LED gem in the front and the gun also had pulsating purple LEDS built in throughout. The vast majority of the costume is made 100% by hand by me no 3D printing, the bodysuit is hand painted and my sewing machine broke so I had to do a lot of hand sewing even. I even learned how to solder and build a voice changer but the day of the convention it decided to not work which was probably because of my amateur soldering. The only thing I didn’t make was the purple fabric which I got custom printed from the website spoon flower. The costume took me about a year and a half to make but I work full time.
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.
