Seriously, this is my full time job here - making props - and I have rent and bills to pay. If you just feel like goofing off and tossing out bids with no intention to pay, please do so elsewhere. I've got enough crap on my plate right now without having to deal with you.
If you are new to eBay or have zero feedback, I will remove your bid unless you contact me prior to placing a bid/buying this suit. Sorry, I've gotten burned now too many times to give people the benefit of the doubt.

Payment for this item will be due within 24 hours of auction close in order to make the Halloween delivery deadline.

Up for auction is my suit of N7 armor I made from Bioware's Mass Effect franchise. This armor was made in 2010 for Dragon*Con, and was styled to resemble the armor Commander Shepard wore in the game Mass Effect 2. In 2011, I revisited the armor in order to make the strapping and articulation more durable and comfortable, and I also spent some time weathering the armor to give it a more realistic and gritty look. The armor is composed primarily of EVA foam mats, with some parts made from vacuum formed styrene. The natural color of the foam is gray, and painted stripes have been applied with lacquer and enamel paints. The back plate of the armor had EL wire illumination, and a control box hidden in the backpack area houses the wiring and switch.

If you're a US buyer, I can guarantee shipping to you in time for Halloween! (Shipping via USPS Priority mail)

Included in this sale are the following parts:
  • Chest and back armor
  • Shoulder plates
  • Bicep guards
  • Forearm armor
  • Gloves
  • Thigh armor
  • Kneepads
  • Boots
Not included are the weapons (sorry!) the undersuit (ew) or the haircut (auction TBD)

Admittedly, the boots are the largest failing of the costume. These are modified galoshes and should really be revisited if the buyer is after something a bit more accurate. They have no lacing and are also quite snug, making them somewhat difficult to put on and take off again. Despite this, once your foot is in them they're comfortable enough!

As this is a custom-made costume, it is a "one size fits a pretty specific segment of the population" sort of affair, and that means you'll need to be in or around my general size and shape in order to wear it. Here's more information about the dimensions of my person than you ever wanted to know:
  • Height: 5'8"
  • Weight: 145lbs
  • Shoe size: 9.5
  • Glove size: 8
  • Chest: 35"
  • Waist: 32" (around hips) natural waist 30"
  • Thigh (around): 20.5"
  • Bicep: 12.5" (oof, thats kind of sad isn't it?)
  • Forearm: 10"
  • Sign: Leo
That may seem like a lot of information, but most of this armor conforms very tightly to these proportions. While some segments (most notably the chest and thigh armor) can be adjusted in and out by a couple of inches, pieces like the bicep armor are just one continual circular part, and cannot be adjusted outward (though if you're smaller, you may be able to pad them with some foam in order to get them to fit.)

If you'd like to see more about the construction of this armor, to get a better behind-the-scenes look at the item you're buying, you can check out more photos about the build process on my blog. eBay won't let me link to my blog directly to provide you with a write-up of how the project was actually built (blogspot is blocked for some reason?) but if you're curious, then go to the following address to learn more. You'll have to copy and paste, and replace the obvious things with their obvious replacements. Sorry! volpinprops.blogspot(DOT)com/2010/09/n7-armor-dragoncon-2010-recap(DOT)html

Shipping is NOT available internationally, sorry! The box will be fairly large and shipping it overseas would be prohibitively expensive. US buyer though? Delivery by Halloween! Item is sold AS-IS; this is a costume that has been worn before at a a couple of conventions and has some wear and tear to show for it. No returns accepted. Also, the word "penis" is written on the inside of the codpiece. I make no apologies for this; you've been warned.

Thanks for looking!
