    My First Build

    She did a damn good job didn't she?! I'm keeping notes on Eleena as the jumpsuit is VERY similar to Darth Atroxa. I'm planning on using as much stretch fabrics as possible; I think between using a wetsuit material and sewing I should be able to create the armour; OR foam. Unsure which way I will go yet. But definitely aiming for flexible. RE: Makeup - alcohol based and applied with an airbrush is by far the best way - I do it already for my Maladi and I am able to get 8+ hours of wear without worrying about touchups. There are a lot of brands out there; best to try and source something locally though. Otherwise, fall back to Reel Creations as they provide international shipping. If you're able to find a knee-high boot that fits, you can modify them for the cuffs and a cover for the top of the foot. Best of luck!! Keep checking in as you start acquiring parts and building!!

    Darth maladi costume

    Hi Eme!! There are a number of photos of my Darth Maladi, including the headpiece in the Gallery section of the forums. I made the headpiece by hand moulding ABS plastic, and created the 3D embossing with an overlay of Foam. For paint; I use an alcohol based paint locally sourced in Australia and applied with an airbrush. But globally the Reel Creations paint is readily available.

    Voice changers

    A fellow member of my garrison has managed to make voice changers - specifically for Kylo Ren costumers - but he might be able to provide some insight. You can check our his build thread through his Facebook page: Syldar - miscellaneous particulars.

    Zara's Darth Talon W.I.P and upgrades

    Assisted on a talon build; we modified a strapless bra. The bra provided the support, and a cover was sewn with leatherette and then permanently attached to the bra.

    Completed Darth Maladi

    Whoa! Lucky you getting away with the body suit over your arms; the CRL states all exposed skin is painted red!! My garrison wouldn't have a bar of it when I asked! Congrats!

    Approved: Darth Talon

    Woohoo!! Congratulations! Just one comment - Spirit gum may help reduce any movement or slip on the Lekku, but you may still want to paint up higher to avoid the little gap of colour on the forehead diamond tattoo. Upgrading the nip on the airbrush will make a huge different to application time too. Either way - enjoy every paint party you have from here on out! And welcome to the Legion!
