N7 hoodie casual by Ellaire N7 hoodie casual by Ellaire
Huzzah! Finished the chaps! So now you get inflicted with Blue Steel. Goddess, my hair looks relatively sane here. :S

These were more of a trial for my other costume I'm doing (alliance combat fatigues/prologue uniform). Some things worked, others didn't. Emo jeans are Emo so I think I'd wear my other proper pants if I went out in this properly. And I'm annoyed I've lost my muscle tone from tennis or else I'd look more like the Vanguard I feel on the inside, rather than the skinny salarian infiltrator I appear to be. Sigh. Time to go Charge some Brutes to make me feel better.

And credit where credit is due: :icontroodon80: is a Godsend and refed from [link]

EDIT: Pattern for anyone who wants help to make some of these :) [link]

Hey I used your outfit as a reference while looking for someone to make me these chaps, just thought I'd let you know! (:

No problem! Let me know if you need any help with anything. I do suggest using an elastic for the straps just above the knees as the material I used for these didn't have any give and I had problems sitting down lol. Or perhaps a material for the chaps that has plenty of stretch in it. But I went with something durable and military looking, I think it was drill cotton. Hope that helps!

Woow awesome. Especially those chaps. This is the ladies N7 lightweight hoodie right? How is the sizing? Because I'm a size 4 and I'm hesitating between small or medium...

Thanks! And good spotting. Im a 2/4. (larger chest and long arms lean to a 4) so id go same as me, a small. I think if you went bigger, it might be a bit too baggy.

This is perfect~! I was planning on doing some kind of ME cosplay for next summer up here at Anime North, and I've been watching the Bioware store ridiculously to see when they'd get the hoodies back in stock! But I thought about it and this would be the easiest cosplay to make (especially when your little brother has a ton of nerf guns to customise, and you indoctrinate him into the series as well, hehe).

Thanks for the chap prints though! :)

Ha yeah. Make some chaps, get some fitted black pants, boots, tshirt and you're good to go! :D

De nada n.n I see no point in holding onto the pattern. It's not that technically advanced, just some minor fitting to your own body and you're all good. Cant wait to see yours! And, I must admit, I'm jealous for the nerf supply! I think that may be my next project. Give Shep a gun.

Oh yeah; I went about my house yesterday, and found said pants, boots, and riding half-chaps to make said boots look taller. I did sstick my N7 patch to a black jacket for the time being and even went so far as reusing a red wig from an old halloween costume.

True, but it gives a general idea. I can't sew to save my life besides stitching in patterns by hand. But my gran can. :P

and yeah, his room and closet have literally become nerf gun armouries to the point that I needed to compensate and buy one of my own. I mean, I've seen the Maverick revolver being used for Shepard cosplays a lot, though I think having my rifle would be pretty cool.

I'm tempted to make my own N7 hoodie with some red and white fabric/felt for the time being considering the Bioware store is almost alwayss out of stock for a hoodie in my size, both in the men's and women's versions. >_>

Red and white fabric paint may be better, you wont get bunching that way. Or at least that's what they've done on mine.

Love the ID pic too btw. What position do you play?

Turns out, a) Bioware was in stock, and b) my grandma took out her credit card and paid for it for my Christmas present. PROBLEM. SOLVED. <3

and thanks! I play prop, and sometimes eight, but mostly prop. I miss it; my university only offers a varsity team, and I didn't have time for it.

Huzzah! When it's meant to be, it's meant to be :D And you're a lot braver than me, an ex-right winger! I was in a scrum once. Once was enough XD

:iconmercs2girl:
Mercs2Girl Featured By Owner Nov 24, 2012  Student General Artist
Yes indeed!

ahah, winger. Well I do have to give wings credit though! I mean, you guys get the ball and then you're booking it as everyone else charges at you. And usually wingers aren't very big people. :P I mean, as a forward, I did a loooot of hitting. I'm 5ft7, and stocky like my dad is, (He played football all throughout high school funny enough) and I've got broad farm-girl shoulders. good times, good times. I've nearly gotten in two fights in my rugby career; once was this prop who kept pinching my arm in the scrum, so I called her out on it, and she was like, "You wanna go, bitch?" and then I waited, standing there and then my team scored, so it was like, "WHAT NOW?"

:P

Well, you don't look like you're mixed-chinese heritage, nor do you quite look the Adept part, so you're definetly not my dear Yue Shepard.

So what class and rep is this? Sentinel Paragon? :)

I wrapped myself up in a piece of newspaper and, with the refs on the computer screen in front of me, I drew the outline in vivid. Highly technical I know. :XD: I can share the pattern if you wish?

And thanks! :D

All you need is an oven, thin eva foam, a polystyrene ball cut in half and nailed/stuck to a board to get teh boobs and a knife. And glue. Strong glue. Easy! But I muist admit, this was perhaps the easiest costume ever.:D

Don't stop making them! There can never be enough ME costumery! :D:D As to how I did these, I drafted the pattern onto myself with newpaper and vivid, sewed it together (then fitted it properly -_-') before adding the pockets and details. Can share the pattern if you want?
