Awesome N7 armor. The helmet looks spot-on, and the arms aren't bad either.

However, the chest piece could use a little work with the strapping. It's not bad, but a few tweaks could make it better. The thigh plates also look like they need to be adjusted. I'd also recommend blousing your boots. Finally, the suit looks too clean, try scuffing it up a bit for a more battle-worn appearance.

But, I still have to say that suit looks awesome. I tried Me cosplay once (with a rather shabby Garrus rig). It took a lot of effort and it still looked kinda awful. You did a great job on this, and I hope to see more in the future.

Holy crap, actual feedback! :O

The thing about this costume is that the armor is actually store bought. The helmet we made ourselves & the boots are regular millitary boots. The belt in my chest is also ours.

I figured the straps might have needed adjusting. I actually told them that they were loose, but they didnt seem to listen. :/

Im not really sure, but it seems counter-intuitive to have the shoes bloused while having the armor weathered. I'll see what I can do but wouldn't that just cause the same problem of mistatching?

Anyway, Thanks for the comments Borkless. You certaintly helped!

The suit was a foam suit I bought online. The helmet was made out of Pepakura with thin sheets of foam to cover it. And the boots are just normal boots from the store.

It was a pleasure.

For store-bought you certainly made it look good, the helmet in particular looks great!

But, the under-suit looks a little loose under your arm. and the suit would look better if it fit closer around the ankles. Right now I can't shake the impression that you're wearing dress slacks.

A final, really nit-picky note: your salute looks a little sloppy. It's not that bad, but if you take a look at real soldiers, they tend to do it much crisper. (of course, they don't have armor getting in the way)
