Femshep Is Now Officially A Redhead

When BioWare let fans decide what the ‘official’ Femshep would look like via Facebook, there was a bit of backlash – a backlash towards the whole process, and the fact they were changing her from the default female option in Mass Effect 1 and 2, then a little bit of a kerfuffle when the blonde won. Then BioWare moved the goalposts – that vote was just for the facial structure, they claimed, before asking us to vote on the colour of Femshep’s hair.

When will the madness end?

Now, apparently, after BioWare has now announced that voting on the hair colour of Femshep has been closed. She is now officially a redhead!

To celebrate Bioware has released the concept art, which looks great — obviously — but we can’t help but wonder about the whole process. Why not go with the original default option, and is it wise to throw the ‘canon’ version of a main character to a vote?

Any thoughts?

Thanks VG247
