I'm on the PS3 so I can't post screenshots or anything, but I prefer my Shepards to look a bit boring. Genetically recessive traits are supposed to have been phased out by the time of ME1, so brown/black hair and brown eyes are the norm, which is evident in most of the in-game human models. I usually give my femsheps brown hair, slightly tan skin(depending on background) and brown or slightly blue eyes, which are usually also the most natural-looking colors allowed by the character creators. The scars from ME2 and onwards are mostly enough to really distinguish Shepard, even if they're faint.

I always use this site to create shepards for trilogy runs: http://old.masseffec...torial=me2tome1

Trust me, it can be quite useful.



First, I play the prologue segment in ME2. So I am able to decide exactly how he or she is going to look in ME2.



Then I apply the code to this site, and create the equivalent it gives in ME1. Usually it still requires me to do some tweaks here and there because the transition is

not flawless. But it still gives you more than a fair approximation. The transfer of characters from ME2 to ME3 involves a much smoother transition, with very few tweaks needed.



Since this (old) topic asked about female Shepards, here are my favorites of the ones I created. I´m yet to create my supreme version of a black female shepard. It took me long enough to create a good asian version. I had a few black ones that I liked but they always had one aspect that displeased me (they were either too Caucasian aside from the color of the skin or looked a little too much like stereotypes, with rough figures). One day I hope to craft a very memorable one.

I have two Asian variations of the same model. A is fair skinned, and B is darker.


me2 female asian A (Yoko) 151.I5B.6K1.W31.2KH.1BQ.1L8.711.966.817.9E7.171


me2 female asian B (Ryou) 131.I5B.6K1.W31.2KH.1BQ.1L8.711.966.817.9E7.171


me3 female asian A (Yoko) 151.I5B.6K1.W31.2KH.1FQ.1L8.711.966.817.9E6.171

me3 female asian B (Ryou) 131.I5B.6K1.W31.2KH.1FQ.1L8.711.966.817.9E6.171




As for the next 3...


I call them the 3 shepard sisters. They´re part of a project I´m doing about beating the trilogy using each class in six separate runs.

Sadly, I have no idea how to capture images on origin.


So here are the codes:

Redhead female shepard. I called her Vanessa shepard. Was going to name her Luise at first:


me2 female redhead 751.I5B.6K1.W9C.4KH.1AQ.1L8.711.966.813.4F3.155

me3 female redhead 751.I5B.6K1.W9C.4KH.1AQ.1L8.711.966.813.4FC.45A




Blonde female shepard. I called her Lilian Shepard. Almost called her Miriam. I´m close to finishing my trilogy run with her. Should end it tomorrow if all goes as planned.


me2 female blonde 751.I5B.6K1.W9C.4KH.17Q.1L8.711.966.811.4F1.346

me3 female blonde 751.I5B.6K1.W9C.4KH.17Q.1L8.711.966.811.4F2.64B




Brunette female shepard. Amy is her name. Initially was going to be called Jen(nifer).



me2 female brunette 751.I5B.6K1.W9C.4KH.18Q.1L8.711.966.817.4F7.166

me3 female brunette 751.I5B.6K1.W9C.4KH.17Q.1L8.711.966.817.4F6.165




I can vouch that my creations look good (at least to me) in-game. It´s not just the creation screen. And they menage to look good over the course of the entire trilogy (I tried then on each game already) looking like the same character and without using mods of any kind. So they can work both on PC and consoles.

Feel free to try them if you like, or tweak them if some aspect displeases you. I know that the asian models work great with different hair-styles, but I wanted one that could carry over the entire trilogy. Hair number 2 works great for the asian models in me3, but this same hair-style looks a little weird in ME2. ME3 also has some exclusive hair-styles that are fantastic and work great on the faces of the models I used for the 3 caucasian ladies. But I envisioned them for trilogy runs having a consistent and immutable look (since they won´t even change class). But don´t let it stop you if you think they can be improved to your personal taste. I´m only offering them as suggestions and templates.

I like how mine turned out, I stuck with it through ME1-ME3. I had some problems with the face correctly translating from ME2 to ME3, but I fixed it with Lazarus Project. The only thing that stood out a bit (different than in ME2) is that the jaw is a bit narrower, but I think that's the general problem in ME3, all female faces look younger because of that.

Here are some screenshots:

I used this texture overhaul and hair mod to get the default Jane hair on my custom made Shepard. Here's my headmorph. I've used to use classy hair in ME1 and ME2, but it looked off in ME3. She also used to be blonde, but I hated the glossy look of hair they've implemented, so I turned her black.

Sorry for the pic being so small (served as an avatar), but this is pretty much what my Shep looks like. I usually remove all of the makeup from my female PC's, since it doesn't really make sense for them to have it in battle.

In case you're starting from the very beginning, this was her in ME1 and 2 respectively (again, sorry for the small pics)

Damn. Face codes. Guess I'll post that shortly. Good thing I'm on my PS3 right now.


That's probably one of the best Femshep faces I've seen! Would you mind posting the Code for the Mass Effect 3 face?
I myself generally just go default when I play as Maleshep but none of the Femshep default faces I have seen look good.

Would also really appreciate the face codes for this, she looks great.

The code for that Shepard is 923.S9K.J17.F8A.J1P.1AQ.2ED.711.F57.417.3G6.177
