Comment:
From Mass Effect 2

"Lord of Hunters. Grant that my hands be steady, my aim be true, and my feet swift. And should the worst come to pass, grant me forgiveness."

Info on cosplay:

The mask was done with a plaster head cast of the cosplayer. The positive mold of the mask was sculpted in clay by Erik Wallkingford and Kai Norman, then a negative plaster mold was taken. Liquid latex was then painted into the relief mold to form the wearable latex mask, which is held on by a zipper affixed to the back.

The mask was painted by Eric Brooks AKA "Aldarionn" using latex paint (The stuff comes in sample bottles at Home Depot for a relatively inexpensive price and once primed the paint holds up extremely well under wear and tear.). I used mostly drybrushing techniques and thinned the paint considerably before application, including the primer. In hindsight I should have gotten a spray primer because the liquid stuff I painted on by hand took several coats, and much of the time spent painting the mask was priming it.

The eyes are a pair of lenses taken from cheap sunglasses and cut to shape. Excess latex was painted around the lenses to hold them in place, and they are removable.

The jacket was done by someone whom I do not know, and either Erik or Kai could probably credit them. I do know that it took quite some time to complete and was not ready until the day before Anime Expo.

Future plans for the costume include detailing the body suit to be more accurate, however there is currently no time frame for this to be finished that I am aware of.

The Kai Norman of which you speak is me :) and Erik wallingford IS indeed demifiend whom you tagged, yes :)

you also said : "the jacket was done by someone whom I do not know, and either Erik or Kai could probably credit them. I do know that it took quite some time to complete and was not ready until the day before Anime Expo."

to answer your question on who made the jacket? the jacket was made by Arin Babbick, of KAB design tailoring.

i hope that helps? :)
