so. legion. LEGION, YOU GUYS. THIS LITTLE GETH WAS A HANDFUL.
i'll preface by saying i had some oral surgery this week, so trying to craft while under the influence of painkillers was PROBABLY not my brightest idea.
legion is one of my favorite ME2 characters, and i'm SO bummed he wasn't in more of the game. (although if you haven't already, you can watch some interesting footage of legion helping out on tali's loyalty mission. REALLY interesting stuff.)
legion, like garrus, was a character that i was very excited to craft - as well as VERY apprehensive. i just couldn't figure out, in my head or in my sketches, what they were supposed to look like.
after i tackled garrus i put legion on the back burner, afraid of the massive undertaking he would be. i've been sketching out ideas for awhile, but the positive feedback i've received on my plushies these last few weeks finally gave me the motivation to get things going.
one little thing i was proud of but doesn't really show well in the photo: i drew on the grey arm fabric to create the 'sinewy' look of legion's arms.
i knew i didn't want to put a hole clean through the plush (even though it would've been more accurate), so i made a heart-shaped hole in his armor. i experimented with bits of fabric, yarn, pipe cleaners, craft foam to create the exposed wires on his chest, but i wanted something a little more "cutesy", so i settled on the rhinestone lines.
anyway, hope you guys like him! ^.^
