    Hey started a Mass Effect build. Began with the M8. not to thrilled about the results so im going to start again on it but this time use foamies for the detailing instead of engraving it.

    Nice work on the M8! That is a great looking weapon for being made out of nothing but foam. I like the detail carved into it. Did you use a knife for the carving or a dremel?

    Good start on the helmet as well. Keep up the good work and be sure to check out the new templates for the armor that just showed up in another thread. That should save you a TON of drawing time!

    Best of luck!

    I really like the foam helmet, you don't see that very often. Are you designing it all by hand or are you making digital templates?

    WOW this is coming along really well. Are you beveling some of the edges to soften the edges a bit or are you going to keep them crisp?

    This looks fantastic! Love that you chose to go with EVA foam. Can't wait to see how this turns out. I'll be following this thread. C:

    I just picked up Mass Effect 3 a few days ago. I'm hoping to make a Tali costume next year.
