  1. A Nihilus from France

    Good to have you back The tunics are made like this : For the inner tunic - the left side of the tunic crosses over the right side in the front. For the outer tunis - the left side of the tunic crosses over the right side in the front. The belt will hold them in place, so you don´t need to put velcro or else on them, but you can do it it it will make it easier for you to put on the obi and belt
  2. Lord of hunger. Yumyum

    I helped one here in Denmark, who bought a non-used WA KOFT version - to get that one approvable, we had to make mods to the cape and sew it on to the tunic. The tunic we had to put padding in the chest area and the skirt wasn´t wide enough, so he had to make a new one. So it´s not out of the box approvable - let us see, when you receive your BB (brown box)
  3. Lord of hunger. Yumyum

    From what I can see, the WA has made some changes to the costume, because earlier these couldn´t be approved out of the box without mods - one still needs to make sure it is up to the CRL + add the leather belt and boots. The lightsaber is not required for approval at this moment. I found his page : https://wickedarmor.com/project/darth-nihilus-costume/ It is fully up to the GML to approved the costume, but I always say to people - read the CRL and follow it - if you´re having some questions, go on the TFE forum and we will try to help you out the best we can

  5. WIP - My Nihilus (COTF) build early picture

    Your welcome replied again on the NG forum
  6. WIP - My Nihilus (COTF) build early picture

    Hi Nice to see you in here too - I´ve made some comments on your wip on NG forum - I´ll put them in here too. Hi nice work so far. It is difficuelt to see the details on your pics - when you take the approval pics, do remember to stand in front of a plain background with good light. I agree with your own points on things that needs to be fixed. I´ve some comments. Your "ears" needs to be bigger, creating a more sharp fram at the the top of the mask The visible spot between you tunic and mask needs to be fixed with black fabric Your cape is way to long, it has to be around 5 cm of from the ground and be heavily weathered. Do you have 2 tunics and 2 skirts ? The outerskirt needs to be visible shorter than the innerskirt = floortlenght or hangs no more than 2 cm from the ground. Needs heavy weathering on both skirts. Outer tunic needs weatering at the bottom Are your sleeves quilted ? Do your belt have the screws/rivets to hold the smaller belt in place ? Gloves needs to be form fitted.
  7. Flashheart gets Savage

    Hi and welcome Ohh Savage is one of my favorits - so looking forward to follow your build. Looks like you are on to a good start
  8. Robe Pattern?

    No I haven´t seen any - I used two patterns, that I converted into one. I took a tunika and a skirt pattern, put them together and cut it in one front and one back piece. The front piece I made enough wide, to get fabric to make the pleats at the shoulders and to have some gathering in front of dress. You can use any plain dress pattern and make the mods to it
  9. FINALLY!!!!

    Way to go - big congrats
  10. Here I go again…

    Fingers crossed - I think you look great
  11. Robe opinions(?)

    You can´t use a robe pattern - the Traya dress is not open in the front all the way down. You need to find a normal dress or tunic pattern - I used this one and just made it longer and put the V opening in the front down to the waist + I made it a bit wider on the front side, so I could make the pleats on the shoulders. I also made the sleeves a bit wider...
  12. Vicky's Visas Marr Build (Redback Garrison, AUS)

    Very nice progress and research - but do look at the CRL please, if you want to get it approved in the Legion, because not all your ref. pics can be used. Here is a link : http://databank.501st.com/databank/Costuming:SL_marr_kotor2
  13. Vicky's Visas Marr Build (Redback Garrison, AUS)

    Hi and welcome to the forum. Looking forward to follow your build - this costume is also for dual membership of both the 501st. Legion and the Rebel Legion, if you want to join both clubs Have fun and I´ll keep an eye out for your WIP...
  14. Robe opinions(?)

    What pattern ? the robe ? No, you need to find a pattern for a normal, plain dress and then put some more cm to it in the upper part, so you can make the pleats.
  15. Robe opinions(?)

    No sorry but this can´t be used for the Darth Traya - as to the CRL : Hooded Robe For 501st approval: The floor length, loose fitting robe is made of a matte black fabric. The fabric is gathered at the shoulders to create a pleated look that runs down the front all the way from the shoulders to the floor. The front of the robe is open from the shoulders to the belt, creating a "V" shaped opening. From the belt down, the robe is closed in front. The back of the robe is somewhat gathered, but it does not have the same pleating as the front. The hood is attached to the robe, and has a pointed tip. When worn up, the hood falls directly over the bridge of the costumer's nose. I´m looking forward to seeing your WIP and follow your progress
