KOTOR Nihilus Obi Width

Recommended Posts

The CRL says the obi is approximately 4cm wide.

 

The CRL photo shows an obi closer to 4 inches wide. 

 

Whats right whats wrong?

The easy answer is, Yes. 

 

The wording needs to be clarified a bit as it is technically correct at the 4cm for the KOTOR 2 game files, BUT the figure that they made that was based on the character had a belt more like the 4 inch one. It can be either version and still be legitimate as a KOTOR 2 Nihilus style. Images attached for reference.

 

He is going through a CRL modification atm so it will be addressed accordingly here soon.

4cm would be smaller than the belt, so go for 4 inch, i suggest. So it approx. 10 cm.

Thanks for asking this, I was wondering about it today.

 

So when the GML goes through and does approval, are they actually looking for a 4 cm wide obi? Less than 1 3/4" wide? That seems very tiny compared to your standard obi sizes. Hmm, but in looking st the crl reference image, it would appear the obi is more similar to the waist of your jeans where your belt loop would go.

 

Ok, off to sew.

It is not supposed to be wide unless you are doing the figure version, where as the mask does not go down as low over the upper lip and the red lines over the eyes are longer. If you see the photos I posted above, as well as the game screenshots below, of which some are the updated models for better detail. As you can see, very thin obi.

There is no belt on the KOTOR II version of Nihilus.

 

Ooops, mi dispiace. Did not check if its CotF or Kotor.
