Mass Effect: Dr. Andora Caervis (female turian)

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.

In progress:
