  2. Kylo question

    His current placement makes sense to me. I see the SLD as where all of the "movie bad guys" are, and the TFE as where all of the "book (EU), TV and video game bad guys" are.

    Oh, thank you! Good to know. I actually untucked them to be visible... I'll have that fixed by my first troop.
  6. Another Upstate New York Nihilus

    Dropping this here, as an archive for my app for my Darth Nihilus (COTF). Costume provenance: Origional build by Volund Starfire (SL-6132) Jason Ellenburg. Costume uses 22-yards of coarse-weave silk. Everything but the quilted sleeves are made from this silk. Hood and cape are a wide piece of fabric, darted at the top sides to form a hood pocket. The upper corners of the fabric drape over the shoulders and tie in a not at the chest. The hood, is a batting helmet with a piece of Sintra formed into the top shape. The material is attached to the inside/underside of this formed shape and brought back over the top for form the hood. The front facing of the hood details are pleated down to the forehead area. http://i710.photobucket.com/albums/ww103/TrooperPX/Darth%20Nihilus/Ramsay_Nihilus_frontD.jpg The mask combines a blackout mask (lightweight balaclava), underneath a black-painted mannequin face. http://i710.photobucket.com/albums/ww103/TrooperPX/Darth%20Nihilus/Ramsay_Nihilus_maskR.jpg http://i710.photobucket.com/albums/ww103/TrooperPX/Darth%20Nihilus/Ramsay_Nihilus_maskL.jpg The quilted sleeves are a different fabric and attached to a cross-over tunic made from silk. They have a 1” wide vertical rib pattern. Black gauntlet gloves are plain and have no top-stitching details. Inner cross-over tunic is made from silk, and is attached to the inner skirt. The inner skirt is two yards of silk, gathered to give a voluminous appearance. When worn, there is a two-inch gap, creating a split in the center. It reached the floor, but the distressing brings it up a little. The obi is made from silk and has inner-facing to keep its shape. Approximately 5” in width and closes in the back. Belt was made. Under belt is 3” wide. Over belt is 1.25” wide, and held in place with pairs of rivets and closes in the back. The outer skirt is three yards of silk, gathered to give a voluminous appearance. It is on a belt that closes in the middle, creating a split in the center. It reached the floor, but distressing brings it up a little. The outer cross-over tunic has no finished edges. The edges are allowed to distress on their own. Reached to mid-thigh, but distressing brings it up a little. Boots are Harley Davidson boots with all straps and ornamentation removed. They were de-glazed to remove the shine, and then reconditioned. This gives them the same matte appearance as the raw silk. Lightsaber is hand sculpted. I started with a Master Replicas Darth Maul, removed all extra knobs, ground off all of the top fins and mid rings. Bondo’d those areas smooth an added some “tell” details from the version used in COTF (the example in the CRLS is from the KORII game). http://i710.photobucket.com/albums/ww103/TrooperPX/Darth%20Nihilus/IMG_5195nn.jpg http://i710.photobucket.com/albums/ww103/TrooperPX/Darth%20Nihilus/IMG_5203nn.jpg http://i710.photobucket.com/albums/ww103/TrooperPX/Darth%20Nihilus/IMG_5209nn.jpg http://i710.photobucket.com/albums/ww103/TrooperPX/Darth%20Nihilus/IMG_5220nn.jpg http://i710.photobucket.com/albums/ww103/TrooperPX/Darth%20Nihilus/IMG_5267.jpg http://i710.photobucket.com/albums/ww103/TrooperPX/Darth%20Nihilus/jcwm6.gif http://i710.photobucket.com/albums/ww103/TrooperPX/Darth%20Nihilus/Ramsay_Nihilus_lightsaber.jpg Under masking layer, full skirt made from Lycra, to hide lags, and moc-neck dicky. http://i710.photobucket.com/albums/ww103/TrooperPX/Darth%20Nihilus/Ramsay_Nihilus_first.jpg Layer two, inner tunic and inner skirt. http://i710.photobucket.com/albums/ww103/TrooperPX/Darth%20Nihilus/Ramsay_Nihilus_second.jpg Layer three, sleeves and outer tunic. http://i710.photobucket.com/albums/ww103/TrooperPX/Darth%20Nihilus/Ramsay_Nihilus_third.jpg Layer four, outer tunic, obi, belt and gauntlets. http://i710.photobucket.com/albums/ww103/TrooperPX/Darth%20Nihilus/Ramsay_Nihilus_fourth.jpg Mask added. http://i710.photobucket.com/albums/ww103/TrooperPX/Darth%20Nihilus/Ramsay_Nihilus_fifth.jpg Front http://i710.photobucket.com/albums/ww103/TrooperPX/Darth%20Nihilus/Ramsay_Nihilus_front.jpg Front left. http://i710.photobucket.com/albums/ww103/TrooperPX/Darth%20Nihilus/Ramsay_Nihilus_frontL.jpg Front right. http://i710.photobucket.com/albums/ww103/TrooperPX/Darth%20Nihilus/Ramsay_Nihilus_frontR.jpg Left http://i710.photobucket.com/albums/ww103/TrooperPX/Darth%20Nihilus/Ramsay_Nihilus_left.jpg Right http://i710.photobucket.com/albums/ww103/TrooperPX/Darth%20Nihilus/Ramsay_Nihilus_right.jpg Back http://i710.photobucket.com/albums/ww103/TrooperPX/Darth%20Nihilus/Ramsay_Nihilus_back.jpg Comic pose. http://i710.photobucket.com/albums/ww103/TrooperPX/Darth%20Nihilus/Ramsay_Nihilus_comic%20pose.jpg http://i710.photobucket.com/albums/ww103/TrooperPX/Darth%20Nihilus/Ramsay_Nihilus_comic%20poseD.jpg http://i710.photobucket.com/albums/ww103/TrooperPX/Darth%20Nihilus/Ramsay_Nihilus_comic%20pose2.jpg http://i710.photobucket.com/albums/ww103/TrooperPX/Darth%20Nihilus/Ramsay_Nihilus_sad1.jpg http://i710.photobucket.com/albums/ww103/TrooperPX/Darth%20Nihilus/Ramsay_Nihilus_sad1d.jpg http://i710.photobucket.com/albums/ww103/TrooperPX/Darth%20Nihilus/Ramsay_Nihilus_red1.jpg http://i710.photobucket.com/albums/ww103/TrooperPX/Darth%20Nihilus/Red%201tone.jpg Thank you for your time and consideration.

  8. Another Upstate New York Nihilus

    Thanks! Bondo filed down flush to the leftover raised details. Styrene strips added, extra CA pooled to help transitions, edges and sections filed to look more organic:

    Ground down the top "fins" and some of the mid rings: Then filled the those areas with Bondo:

    I almost have all the parts needed to start working on my A'Sharad Hett. Still have some things to get off the bench, but this is a place holder for my WIP.
