Commander Shepard Cosplay WIP1 by RebelATS Commander Shepard Cosplay WIP1 by RebelATS
I'm cosplaying as Commander Shepard for this year's International Comic Con in San Diego(as well as a few others like the midnight release of ME3). I will be dressed in her casual uniform, the one worn when she is on the Normandy.

Even though Shepard does not carry a gun around on the Normandy, I will be. With all the enemies she has, I would have a weapon at all times. I didn't want to do one that is seen in Mass Effect, I wanted my own design to be proud of. So I took a bunch of reference photos and began working away. Shortly after starting, I received the Game Informer magazine with the article on ME3. They mentioned completely customizable weapons so now my gun will fit right in!

1 - Stock Nerf gun: The Recon C5-6.
2 - The Nerf gun stripped apart so all that is left is the base.
3 - Beginning with the modeling clay.
4 - Modeling clay set and ready for paint.

This ones does not. Well, it can if you load it manually. The Mantis is fully functional though.

Cool!
I could do a micro clip mod to the one I build and just breach load the built in clip, and fire off at least four shots.
Thanks for the inspiration!!

What kind of modeling clay did you use, and how does it set? Does it just dry or something? I'd be terrified of bumping into something and the whole thing falling apart.

For this one DAS air-drying modeling clay. It dries by itself over a few hours. It's pretty tough as is but I find by adding just a little bit of water to the top and setting it out in the sun it makes it significantly stronger. I haven't had any issues with it falling apart and I've dropped this one a few times. Another clay that people use is Bondo Body Filler (for cars). If you use that, make sure you use the right amount of hardener cream otherwise it'll be soft for weeks.

Ho-lee-cow who would have thought you could turn that into a mass effect weapon. Really nice work and thanks for the step by step--makes it a lot easier for us noobies to see the process
