Talizorah at Sakuracon 2011 by fiannaValkyrie Talizorah at Sakuracon 2011 by fiannaValkyrie
Here I am as Tali'Zorah vas Normandy at Sakuracon 2011! Yet again, I was scrambling to finish this, so I still don't count it at finished. I got a good 2-month head start, but unfortunately I caught a NASTY flu bug and was incapable of doing any work for 3-4 weeks ;_; Soooo like usual, I was sewing this together at 8am on the 1st day of the con >.<

This costume wouldn't have even got out the door if not for my Vacuform table though! If there is one part of this costume you can't go without it's that, and we were still learning the quirks about proper molding techniques, so there were many times when we were worried that we wouldn't be able to produce a decent enough product in time. Fortunately a good paint job can make up for what a bad mold doesn't show^^;;

The upside of all my frantic last-minute accessory worries was that I was too panicked about those to worry about the neck-to- ankle bodysuit. Everyone could see my squishy bits! @.@ I'm just grateful that it was comfortable to wear. And all the fans seemed to think that the squish was in all the right places appropriate to the character ^^;;

I was very excited to find other Mass Effect cosplayers at the event. (Yay Fem-Shepard and Garrus!) I can't wait to see our web-episode interview get posted! =D

I plan to have this genuinely FINISHED in time for PAX Prime this year, so all you Mass Effect cosplayers come find me!

Thanks! Just gotta get started, making a good cosplay is not a race, do it justice and only reveal it when it's ready!

Maaaaaaaaaaaaaybe? If so it'll only be a one-day trip. Just couldn't scrape together enough cash to afford the whole weekend this year ;_;

That looks like you'd be burning up in about 5 min of walking around in it

This was actually one of the most comfortable cosplays I've ever done o.o The bodysuit was designed for ballet dancers, so it moved and breathed great; however getting in and out of it was a bit of a challenge XD

Good to hear, I thought Tali was one of the more interesting characters in Mass Effect. Maybe it was the mystery, or her culture, who knows. Cool costume :love:
