My favourite picture!

2013 photoshoot by Minty and Minty Cheesecake Photography.

Tali - an enviro-suit wearing, engineering, shotgun-wielding best friend.

Black nylon-spandex bodysuit modified with:
- hand-dyed, hand-painted silver-swirled nylon-spandex sashes.
- hand-painted silver hexagons on heavy black moleskin appliques on chest and back.
- hand-painted grey elastic piping

Gloves and feet made with heavy black moleskin fabric, stuffed with polyfill, swirled purple and silver nylon-spandex appliques, wonderflex armour.

Chest belts of black elastic, hand-painted parachute-clip buckles, wonderflex and craftfoam roundels.

Shoulder armour made from craftfoam and wonderflex.

Waist belt of leather, found metal buckle, wonderflex and craftfoam oval buckle. Modified army surplus ammo pouches.

Upper-arm armour of craftfoam and wonderflex.

Vambraces made from craftfoam, wonderflex and vinyl flooring.

Calf armour made of craftfoam and wonderflex.

Helmet (v 2.0 - I had a simple one for DragonCon that someone else made, I made an upgraded one myself in time for Edmonton) made of wonderflex, layers of sanded Bondo, filler primer and paint. Mouthpiece of found plumbing parts and sculptable plastic resin. One LED circuit.

Visor thermoformed transparent PETG plastic, dyed purple with iDye Poly fabric dye.

Girls in Tali costumes are brave. Just to look on legions of fanatical talimancers, some of them totally creepy.




Yep, I am talimancer too. But only soft one :D

Great job, waht can I say :) Now only thing missing is a little glow. Leather would be a better material for Tali's suit. But still, awesome work.

Ah, if only leather stretched like spandex...

She does light up but that doesn't show up so well in these pictures.

Thank you - I'm glad you like it! :)
