Haha it was only after I clicked "add comment" that I thought it might sound odd, like I needed to change my underwear, or that I drooled a waterfall all over it. But anyway it was actually more like me saying with sparkly eyes: "You look awesome, and you have my favorite rifle! :'D" And then she replied "Thank you! And OMG I KNOW RIGHT? Isn't it just amazing!" Me: "IT TOTALLY IS! TAT"
I have a bad case of Mass Effect cosplay envy. XD Soon though I'll cosplay FemShep, and maybe try my hand at modding a nerf gun into some sort of ME weapon... it will probably explode.
Oh man, I am not skilled in the ways of costume-making. Can I design and pull together one out of already-crafted parts? Oh yes. But not from scratch XD It's still a skill I plan to develop once I have money though.
