I mentioned in my last instructable that I have been playing a fair bit of Mass Effect lately.  One part of the game that I like is chatting with your squad mates on the Normandy, they are really great characters and since some of them are aliens, they look really cool too. While playing the game I've often thought about crocheting some of these squad mates.  Since I had the perfect colour of blue yarn already, I decided to start with Liara T'Soni, the Asari scientist.  Along with her I made Glyph, her VI info drone.  Liara can hold Glyph in her arms (with the aid of some velcro) and he can light up with a small LED.

I also made Tali Zorah vas Normandy, check her out here.

ChrysN, this is so cute! I am amazed at your talents as always. I love the detail. I don't know much about the game but the character is interesting. thanks for sharing.

This is awesome! :D I have to make this for a friend.

What dollar store did you find the pins at? In a multipack, no less! The only ones I can find online are roughly $6 for one pin. :(

ChrysN (author)  pbandjellyfish4 months ago

Wow, I didn't look closely at that, I thought it was $6 for a 5 pack which is about what I paid. I bought mine at Dollarama which is in Canada. I found a link with a better price:

Thanks! I'll look into getting them. Man, Canada seriously has the best dollar stores, I keep seeing stuff recommended from there and it's like, "You got that WHERE?!"

Oh my!! This is just amazing. She's one of my favorite characters! :D

I am so in awe of your skills!

ChrysN (author)  jessyratfink4 months ago

Thanks, she is my favourite too. If I find the time I would like to try to make some of the other squadmates, maybe Tali or Femshep next.

So much detail! It's wonderful!
