Hey! So I'm new to the twi'lek costuming but not to costuming in general. This will be my 4th Star Wars costume and gosh knows what number costume overall. I'm a member of the 501st with a Biker Scout and Imperial Gunner as well as a member of the Mandalorian Mercs. Plus I do reenactment costuming on top of all that. I've never dipped into the whole make up thing but I wanted to give it a shot after my bff Sen'ika made her twi'lek. The two of us have made mando's together and now we have made twi'leks together! :)

My plan for right now is to do one custom twi'lek (Shala Venn) and one cannon twi'lek (Aayla Secura)

So the 501st/Rebel Legion/ Mando mercs just had a parade up here in WA and I donned my Shala Venn character. She is a twi'lek smuggler/bounty hunter and her name means "crying silver" in Twi'leki. Thought I'd show the build and then continue on into my other costumes. Thanks!

You both look awesome! It's funny... I've seen so many new Twi'lek costumes over the years, but I still get downright giddy every time I get to see a new one. Thank you so much for sharing!

Pam :-)

Update! Its been while and me and Sen'ika tried twi'lek smugglers again at a convention. I'm still trying to figure out a solution for the makeup that I like, I'm not happy with it still and I'm not so sure I can get the nice Alcoholic base stuff because I'm just a college student and the economy is terrible. But this is what we did regardless of muddy looking makeup lol
I'm the one in the black headdress, goggles and black cargo pants, accompanied by Sen'ika <3

As far as non-alcoholic based paints go, I'd say you did a good job :) The mottled look actually works since most twi'leks aren't a flat color. Most of them have some sort of marbling or mottling in their lekku at least, and if the rest of you is like that it enhances the effect. I love the head gear!
