So this is it—Nyreen’s head is done! Or at least as done as it’s going to get by PAX East. I’d like to do more to the hood but since I’m already in rush mode to get this done by the end of March that’s been moved to the “if time presents itself” pile.
This has been heat formed since the last post which is why it now holds its shape. After I did that I put some bondo on so I could carve the nose out and fix the lines on the nose and upper lip (you can see this in the picture where Ritzy is so kindly modeling the mask for me). The bondo also had the added benefit of hardening the front of the mask quite a bit. You can wet sand EVA foam if you use a sandpaper with a fine enough grit, so I sanded the bondo down until it was flush with the foam.
The next step was mod podge. LOTS of mod podge. I applied about 4-5 coats to the face and mandibles, and a single coat on the “fringe”/part that goes over the ears. I don’t have pictures, but I coated the fringe in plastidip. This 1) sealed the foam and 2) allowed those flaps to remain flexible so that the mask can bend a bit when you put it on/take it off. It worked beautifully. :)
Then it was just priming, spray painting a white base, acrylic paint for the red markings a clear coat, and then weathering.
The hood is a scuba hood made of lycra with an open face. I smeared some black eyeshadow all over my eyes for this pictures, but I’m going to have to work on that so that I don’t look like the Nightman under there. Also I need to order some yellow contacts.
Again, if anyone has questions or wants help doing something like this, let me know either here or on Twitter and I’d be glad to help. I sort of made this up as I went along, but the final product is very solid and I’m pretty happy with it. Now onto the feet and ARMOR! \o/

Mass Effect has a simple message: human beings are delusional about their importance in the grand scheme of things.
Mass Effect starts with humanity in the galaxy where it should have been in the United Federation of Planets: unnoticed among the other minor species struggling to prove to the Council why they add anything of value to the civilization that is Citadel Space. Such a message would be laughable were it made central toStar Wars or Star Trek, where nearly every important character is human. Star Wars and Star Trek start with the assumption that humans will be important in galactic civilization. Why? In part because the medium forced that decision, but more so because both universes assume that human beings add meaning to the universe. Mass Effect doesn’t make such an assumption.Mass Effect never lets you forget that we might not add one jot of meaning or benefit to intelligent life beyond our solar system.
An interesting read.
According to ABC Today, EA will be launching a few ME3 games into space.
They are planned to come back to Earth sometime before March 6th, ME3’s release date. They can be tracked on the Mass Effect website, and anyone who finds one will be able to play the game before they even hit retailers.
This doesn’t make sense.
No sense! None whatsoever.
Physics says no.
i don’t understand
HAHAHHA THIS IS SO AMAZING
someone forbid these people from having ideas
i hope my house isn’t accidentally destroyed by a game i didn’t even want to play
obviously, they aren’t sending them ALL THE WAY INTO SPACE, like past earth’s atmosphere. They’re just sending them up in balloons. I guess it’s just the marketing major in me, but I think it’s kinda a fun idea.

If this is Ashley in armor with her hair up and her casual outfit has her hair down I may be in danger of exploding from the love I have for Bioware right now. Also, this is I think from the Dark Horse panel at NYCC which I DIDN’T GET TO GO TO and am kicking myself. SO MANY QUESTIONS.
This… is pure gold. I am seriously happy and excited. Some key notes:
-Known races in multiplayer (not sure if considered confirmed, but I err on the side of caution and say it’s not confirmed, though this video probably is confirmation):
- Asari (Mentioned - 1:48)
- Drell (Mentioned - 1:49)
- Krogan (Shown - 1:35)
- Salarian (Shown - 1:49)
- Turian (Shown - 1:49)
-Singleplayer “best” outcome completely attainable from single player, multiplayer an alternate way to get best ending
March, please come already, I want this game.
I’m excited about the multiplayer. Perhaps a little disappointed that I can’t be Blasto *le sigh* but all told it looks to be an incredible new feature.
game of the year all yearsx
Mass Effect 3 audio lead Rob Blake has revealed that the game will feature 40,000 lines of recorded dialogue – that’s twice as much dialogue as the first game, and almost twice as much as its sequel.
