This costume is a depiction of Tali'Zorah from the game series Mass Effect. This series is very special to me, therefore this costume is incredibly close to my heart. These photos were taken at her debut, Otakon 2012. This was a very intricate cosplay, requiring circuit boards for the voice activated helmet, vacuum forming, EVA foam armor build, Apoxie and resin work, painting, airbrushing, and custom fabric printing. This costume was done all by hand, with intricate detail and a LOT of trial and error!

Tali is a character with TONS of development. She derives from a race of wandering, secluded aliens that are required to be under constant full-suited status due to their non-existent immune systems. Tali is one of the protagonist's main companions throughout all 3 games, and is considered one of the most appealing love interests. Tali appealed to me primarily because she starts out naive and a bit weary, and progresses into a full fledged galaxy protecting admiral. She remains loyal throughout the series, and is able to set aside racial differences and even befriend and respect what is supposed to be her arch enemy.

Tali is my second costume in my first year of cosplaying. I have worn her to 2 conventions thus far, and plan to keep her around for some time! When people see my Tali, whether they know the character or not, they are instantly interested. The race she is from, Quarians, have an appealing character design.

For my second costume, I feel Tali came out pretty well! Fans of the series seem to agree, and there is never a better feeling than seeing a dedicated fan melt into a pile of nerdy happiness in her presence!
