Unread post Sith Inquisitor costume
Heya. Thought i'd share some pics i've recently got of my twilek costume. She is based on the sith inquisitor class from The Old Republic mmo game. I loved the elegance of the inquisitor costumes and always pick twilek for my character race so i had to make the costume lol. The lekku were made by a lovely lady in the UK called Alyx Streater. She makes them from upholstery foam which is then coated and dipped in latex. What i like about the technique is the lekku can be made to order, so for instance with my character the lekku sit slightly more on the side of the head in the game than straight back, as they do in the new films.They can also be made to any length. (her longest have been for a talon costume) The only down side of the is you have to wear a headband to hold the headpiece on.
i made the costume based on various costumes as with the game you can mix and match so all pieces work with each other.I wore it at an event in London called LFCC ,where these photos were taken and i plan to bring it with me to Dragon Con.

I'm hoping i have enough time to make some proper gauntlet gloves for this as what i used here are my bracers from my Liara T'soni costume from Mass Effect :D

The lekku are pretty comfy being foam, but because you need a tight headstrap to hold them on, it can make the ears ache after a while as they are pressed down. trying to figure out a way round that, perhaps cutting out the part where the foam touches the ears.

So sorry not been on here much, but i thought id share a couple of new pics of the costume i had taken at Dragon Con, by Bryan Humphrey. I changed it up at bit, wearing a corset and utility belt plus actual sith contacts that were comfy lol.

(id have added the pics direct here, but i couldnt reduce them down enough without making them distorted as hell.)

So these are links to my facebook page. Hope that's ok

I did post new pics in another thread, but thought i'd add some newer ones i got from the last event i did.
I changed it up a bit by repainting the lekku to a pale skin tone - which is my very pale skin tone and matches what the peachy coloured twi'lek's colour when they hit darkside level2. I added heavy eye makeup and facial tattoos and im really pleased with the result and actually far prefer it to the blue.
I also made a new headband out of Wonderflex covered in metallic vinyl, plus new belt with pouches and new Bracers. I split open the skirt, creating a front and back tabbard like panel and added a pleated underskirt to give a wider skirt silhouette.
