Easy-ish cosplay for a rookie

So I'm pretty new so the whole cosplay thing but I am dying to try it out, I also really want to try something from Mass Effect. So really I'm just looking for some ideas on where would be a good place to start, I'm pretty certain I'd be able to make a mask (I've been researching how to do the Asari headpiece for Aria) but it's the armor/ actual costume that I think would screw me over since I'm a lot more savvy with arty stuff than sewing ha. Any hints, tips or ideas on where to start would be very much appreciated!

I'm a rookie myself, but I've found the pepakura method to be really helpful when it comes to armor/helmets. TheRPF forum has a really good archive of ME related pep files that's added-to pretty frequently:

If you dig around you'll also find some how-to stuff on the basic process of working with pep, if you haven't encountered it before. The 405th is also a really good resource on armor building how-to's (although they mainly focus on HALO stuff, the process is the same): http://www.405th.com/forum.php

Oh, another thought - Dr Chakwas might be an easy one? No prosthetics or armor required, anyway.

Nevermind, guess it was just screened or something.
