So right around my birthday I went off and FINALLY got some photos done of my Kaidan armor!

Photos by CTGRAPHY

Armor built by me!

Fun fact - We shot at Niagara Falls so those buildings in the back are Canada!

Welp, I have a helmet.
It’s real shitty but it’s pretty much done. I was feeling artistic so i threw my fish tank light under it for the photo. I’ll pop in the real lights for it later. I’m going to throw some sealer on it before bed. I’m going to hold off putting in the plastic for the visor for the time being, I think I need all the air holes I can getHope my coworkers enjoy the next few days of ‘sleep is for people who aren’t going to Dragon Con’ mode!

Wow I have a giant head. Holy cow.
Going to have to rework the collar and front tab to accommodate, or I could just not move my head. Basically I am forsaking all my other costumes and spending the next week working on Kaidan.

Drawing Kaidan in formal wear, Pandora decides to play Canon in D. SERIOUSLY?! That’s just no fair. That’s just way too many Shenko feels, Shenko wedding feels no less.

ME2 Replay…

Guess what mission I just finished? ::gross sobbing::

I’ve played through this who knows how many times, still hurts like a bitch.

So this weekend I accidentally my space husbando.

I just got home like 2 hours ago, my brain is not in working order yet. I had such a blast at PAXEast, you guys don’t even know. I’m so glad I made a bunch of new shenko loving friends! <3 Everything was just so cool. I will have more words in the morning, I literally can not form sentences. But yeah, here it is for people to see. I love this armor so much. I have to fix a bunch of things and chances are I will re-make half of it before I wear it again. I think it’s a good start though.

I wanted to contribute to VSAW too but I’m not much for writing and I’m slow as heck when it comes to finishing artwork. So that left me with video editing XP it’s a bit rushed since I’m headed out of town for the rest of the week (don’t worry, I’ll be appreciating Kaidan while I’m at PAXEast)

For me, ME1 was all about the adventures of Team Milky Way! I loved my three little musketeers as they ran around the galaxy being the goofy badasses that they are. And then Virmire… T__T

OH MY GOD IT CAME! Tracking numbers are a bad thing, they let me know when it&#8217;s coming so I can stalk the mailman! Me and the dog were both pressed up against the window when he came!
So, this is the ladies hoodie in medium. The color looks sooo much better than I thought it would! It&#8217;s really close in color to my Kaidan/Ashley armor. I was a bit worried that I should have gotten a large since I&#8217;m kind of a plump girl (41 inch bust for reference) but it fits great! I&#8217;m never taking this thing off!
I also made a Fiora wig! Because I can. So no, I don&#8217;t have cool emo-kid hair irl.

Citadel DLC GMV done very quickly because I had feels that needed to get out. It’s an upbeat one though! Tried not to have any plot spoilers, it’s mostly just hanging out with the crew. Custom Femshep with Kaidan for LI.

A quick drink?

Fem!Kaidan cosplay! I’m (not) sorry orz

true story: My husband went to get me lunch and came back with a steak sandwich and root beer. I started spazzing out, he had no idea what he had done but I thought it was awesome!

Next time I decide to be this stupid I promise I’ll be in armor. Kaidan’s armor is sexy and I want it!

More progress! I just finished my Fem! Kaidan! 
I know people aren&#8217;t terribly fond of rule 63 cosplay but I want to show my favorite character some love. In reality there&#8217;s no way in hell I could pull off a crossplay of this, so there ya go. It&#8217;s just a fun, goofy outfit I can wear around cons at night and hit up the bars in. Armored version of Fem! Kaidan coming soon&#8230;

Kaidan Alenko

And it’s not just because he’s my LI. I see a lot of myself in Kaidan, that cool exterior and self imposed control. He may seem a tad awkward and unsure of himself, but in reality he is comfortable in his own skin. It’s other people’s reaction to him that he is unsure of. He sticks to his guns, won’t waver from his own ideals, and would do anything to help his friends even if he ends up hurting because of it. He doesn’t ask for your help, he doesn’t need fixing. Instead he’s there ready to give you anything and everything. He wants to see the good in things but is ready to accept the reality of a grim situation.

Well I was going to be productive before work, instead I was attacked by Shenko feels. So I decided to play with my screencaps. Oh well.

I’ve got ME/2/3 installed on my PC and waiting to go for a marathon run through. But I know I will have no life once I start so I’m going to try to wait till after Otakon is over.

Don&#8217;t leave me behind&#8230;

Right in the kokoro.

Thank you Bioware, thank you. I had feels, but I&#8217;m not horribly depressed. There is hope for Shep and Kaidan, for that I am thankful.
