I Plan on Creating Tali’s Helmet. Here are some more links:
I introduce my project here and also show you the components of the mouth piece. It is sound reactive and you can also find the arduino code.
3/05/2016 – I start using fusion 360 to design her mask!
update : 3/9/2017
Just finished drawing up the prototype of Tali’s mass from mass effect. please let me know if you have any suggestions. I did notice that the on/off switch is blocked and I will try and resolve that issue on V2 of Tali’s mask! will test it once I get my new 3d printer.

Youtube Video Demoing and showing my work:
Wiring is pretty easy:
Out: connects to #9
Ground: connects to Ground
VCC: connects to 3.3 V
Positive: connects to VBatt
Negative: connects to GND
Data: connects to #6
3D Print Assembly:
Pretty self-explanatory… saying this cause I accidentally deleted my photos assembling the project… Doh!
but I will explain to you via video
Notes on Improving this project:
If i were to remake this I would probably redesign it in a way to have the hardware build on the sides of the voice box rather than in it so it conforms better to the face and not limit people to having a 1.5 inch voice box under their chin.
I would update the code to make it have a fading effect rather than just shine brighter the louder you are.
this project is discontinued, I will no longer work on it. Maybe until after I finally finish my own cosplay. >.<
