I play stock Shep, as mine always come out looking weird and I just plough on with the game rather than the dress-up bit.
@jdbecks - it's a sci-fi story based shooter, with good production values and polish. Definitely worth picking up the ME 1 and/or 2 at a good price to see if you like them. There's story / explore / plot stuff with some light tactical team shooting (i.e. you can go sniper, heavy, tactical a bit but nothing significant). Good fun once you're into it.
