This costume was an unusual choice for me because I didnít know the character
very well. Iíd never played Knights of the Old Republic, and her appearance in Star
Wars Tales was very brief and confusing. But, Scott wanted to make a Nihilus costume,
and it seemed like Visas would be the best match for a female character to go with
his Nihilius, so I got to work! I chose the comic version of her costume because
I like the wide sleeves and the color of the dress.
To be honest, Iím not really pleased with this costume yet. The maroon fabric
is very stiff, so it always hangs wrong and has no drape, and I made a few mistakes
while I was sewing the overdress. I know from experience that I wonít be happy with
the costume until I start over from scratch and try again! Weíre planning to take
Visas and Nihilus to Celebration V this summer, so perhaps Iíll finish in time to
debut Visas 2.0 that weekend!
