Commander Shepard N7 armor attempt

Hello everybody,

Though i'm still new to cosplaying i really would like to have a try onto the commander shepard N7 armor.
I've worked with EVA foam once, and it was really fun. But my last project was quite small and i have a lot of foam left, so i decided to use the rest of the foam to build an armor out of it.
I fell in love with the N7 armor from Mass effect because i love the colours and shapes.
I know that it might be a little to hard for a beginner to start with something like that, but soon i will have a lot of time and i will dedicate myself to finish this project.

Yesterday i found some reference pictures, but i will need some more

Aditionally i could need some help by working with EVA foam (painting, etc.)



Sorry about my bad english and greetings from Germany

There are a ton of Pepakura files available here which will allow you to get a little closer view of the armor.

I'm a little late to this but here's a link to some armor templates based off of ME2 armor (just scroll down a little bit and you'll see them). These are non-pepakura files so you can resize and change them in photoshop.

Also, because foam is more flexible you'll want to go with spray paints that have flex in them (no plastic sprays they will crack). A lot of ME cosplayers will use Plasti Dip. Just wear a mask when spraying as it's very toxic. You can get it at any store that sells paint.
