This is my female turian costume in progress. She’s a character of my own design, Dr. Andora Caervis, an ex-military xenobiologist.
Since there are so few female turian characters in the games as of yet, I wanted to do something a little different! Her look will be partially based on General Oraka, black plates with a white design and grey-blue skin. It’s a very cool look, and I think she’ll turn out lovely!
The mask is made from cast resin, pigmented black and painted with a combination of rattle can primer and acrylics.
As with Garrus, the eyes are glass and the mask built in such a way as to give me several vision points. Making glass eyes means she ends up looking much more like the characters in-game than if I made the mask pressed against my face and used my own eyes! Human eyes are simply not turian eyes, and the proportions of the head would suffer as well.
