Hi! My name’s Zach Pickard. I started building props in early 2012, it wasn’t until Salt Lake Comic Con in 2013 that I had my first cosplay. I wanted to do something that was going to be recognizable and hadn’t been done very often, so I chose Legion from the Mass Effect series of video games. I’m also a huge fan of Firefly and Lord of the Rings. Some of my favorite replica props are my replica of Jayne Cobb’s “Vera” which has been autographed by Adam Baldwin and my shield of Gondor that has been autographed by Sean Astin, Billy Boyd, and John Rhys-Davies.
I’m part of theand the . I enjoy sharing my work with people and showing how I build my props and cosplay. I’ll be building a Destiny Titan cosplay this spring to go along with my full-size Sparrow.
If you count Tony Stark’s mind for engineering and gadgets, I’d want that as a super power. He gets to build all the cool toys.
What is your favorite video game of all time?
All-time favorite video game would be Mass Effect. I’m a big fan of FPS games and the Mass Effect universe has the right mix of story and action for me.
