Tali'Zorah ME2 Concept Helmet by anarchysquared Tali'Zorah ME2 Concept Helmet by anarchysquared
I'm preparing some Mass Effect 2 armor for my girlfriend ~aelice and I for a video game con (DEVASTATION in October - who's hitting it?). I'm working on Shepard out of sintra and foam, and at the same time I'm getting her Tali'Zorah costume done.

I added my own variations to the helmet design aesthetically. I've watched other artists struggle with it (I did too!). If you have any questions on how I did mine, let me know. I'll post a video showing the voice light shortly. (I wired it so it blinks when she speaks!)

Edit: Thanks for the feedback. A video will be coming soon! We got the kit from Very cool guys. I'll post pics of my Shepard build soon too.

How'd you make this?

I'd very much like to see how you got the plastic to shape that way~.

The visor was outsourced from a gentleman on the RPF that made daft punk helmets. It had the correct curves to it, so with a little heat and cutting it was perfect. The top dome was a hard hat cut to shape and the rest was part Pepakura (File done by Dungbeetle) that I used as a pattern for the plastic I used for the sides and front.
where did you find the visor? :0

I had contacted a gentleman by the name of Mr.Pinsky (not sure if he's selling them anymore though) on the who was making a Daft Punk helmet and I bought three from him. Destroyed two in the process and that was the final one.

Sorry I hadn't replied. PCC 2012 prep is kicking my but. I got the visor from Mr Pinksi off of the Replica Prop Forum. It was from his Daft Punk Helmet visor that I did a little cutting and shaping to and used VHT purple anodizing paint to tint the visor. You can also use purple RIT dye with several dips to get that purple tint. Hope that helps. :)
OOH! I'd totally buy your kit when it comes out. Excellent work good sir!!
Oh, wow. Definitely put me on the list for when you begin selling a kit. Honestly, this is the best Tali helmet I have ever seen.
I would be very interested in a kit of this!
