View Full Version : Mass Effect 2 Jack Cosplay

02-17-2010, 02:19 PM
Mass Effect 2 is pretty recent so i don't think anyone has posted about jack (aka subject zero) yet.
I was suggested by a friend to try Jack for Anime Detour this year. I was kinda hesitant because i don't think i'd pull it off but once i start thinking about it i'm really excited to try it.
The one thing i think would be hard is the tattoos. All over her body she has all these unique tattoos that mean different things that are personal in her life. One of my friends suggested sharpees but that means i'd have to hold off showering unless i want someone to re draw all those tattoos (and we all know how bad not showering is at conventions). Is there some kind of temporary material i could use like what they use for temp tattoos? I think that would be a lot easier on me.
can i get some tips? anything would be helpful! heres a link to the best picture i could find of her:

alas your image does not work for me, but I know who you're talking about.
Just repeating what I mentioned in the MECosplay forum - try henna?

I thought henna could work, but... damn. Unless you know and have a ton of blackmail on a local henna artist, that will cost you a fortune. An idea? Take some liberties with the specific tattoos and get a shirt like, say...
That. If you go with her secondary 'loyalist' costume, you can wear a tight black sleeveless shirt over it and conceal some of the details that don't make sense for Jack, such as the big tiger on her back.

I've been thinking about doing Jack. the best thing I can think of is getting a nude body suit and drawing the tattoos onto that? XD

It's very trying, but if you can pull it off? priceless!
