"I had reach, she had flexibility." - Garrus

This costume was a blast a DragonCon. I decreased the angle of the digitigrade feet the second time around. It was a neat look, but, ostensibly, I can't do high heels for hours. It was basically high heels minus the heel.

I made two versions of this costume previously, but now I only offer the head gear for after he takes the rocket to his face. I offer many of the plastic kit pieces so you can assemble your own. I might even be convinced to make a complete set to your measurements if I have time. It does not hurt to ask.

This Garrus project was a bit more difficult than I thought it would be. The costume has at least 75 LED's on/in it! But the lighting is one of the things that attracted me to this costume. I especially enjoyed the eye gear. Photos and videos just do not capture how neat the eye piece looks. I think the whole costume requires nine 9V batteries. Fortunately, the armor is very lightweight, including the large chest piece which I designed to split into two pieces for shipping and transport. And I am aware that Garrus does not have a tail- I just forgot to attach the butt plate strap before the indoor video.

A few people have asked how long it took to make. That's hard to say since I worked on it in spurts. I am a quick sculptor, but there was a lot of time involved in moldmaking, paint, and assembly. The work was done over the span of a few months.

Some people have asked about the comfort of the feet. After DragonCon I decided it would be better to reduce the angle of the support structure. It was at an angle similiar to a high heel at first, but this starts to get uncomfortable after an hour and almost painful after 2 hours of standing. I reduced the angle a lot and still get the same effect. It is very comfortable. I could even imagine walking a parade route in these feet on a cool day. I slip my feet with shoes on them into the spandex socks and strap them to the support structure on the inside. Hats off to all the ladies who wear high heels.

This costume was featured on the Mass Effect 2 Official Facebook Page, Brandon Keener's Facebook Page (Voice of Garrus), MTV, Buzzfeed, and more!
