He is my favorite character in ME2, other than the delightful FemShep herself. However, I would really like to give the guy some recognition because he doesn't appear to have been done before. I'm pretty nervous to do something this complex as my first go, but I think it will be awesome.

I've been inspired by this awesome Garrus (http://www.cosplay.com/costume/307193/) by ammnra, whose armor crafting design I hope to emulate for the breastplate/backpiece, shoulder, and leg armor.

I'm in a slightly weird position, though: I'm female. I'm trying to figure out how "true to life" I should do the male aspects in terms of facial features, or whether I'll just use the makeup, tie my hair back, and be done with it!

Hmmm, thats a pretty interesting crossplay idea. I have never done a different gender costume but I'd imagine you should do some theatrical makeup to look more masculine, of course have the scars on your face (rigid colodion makeup).

I'm not sure about the hair. He has kind of thinning/receding hair so a wig might be too thick and full. Maybe you could slick your hair back? I'm not really sure since you didn't mention much about your hair length/color/etc

I'd love to see your Zaeed! I've only seen WIP of him, and seeing a complete one would be awesome.
