  2. Made for my wife however ever so slightly too big for her build. Jaw comes in seperate piece which makes it easier to put on. Jaw clips on or can be fitted with magnets. Just needs a red visor! £120 Sent from my Pixel 3a using Tapatalk

  3. Hi I used a normal shirt pattern for the tunics and moded it so it fit - the same with the skirts, and just winged it, so sadly I don´t have an exact pattern for them.

  4. I have wanted to make this version of Mara Jade for quite awhile. My only current approved Mara is the Arica disguise and can't really wear that to troops. My main issue was the bodysuit. I can sew but I don't have a serger and knew to get the proper fit, I would need one. I also was extremely confused on the diamond pattern and how to make it work properly. My last issue was budget. I can't afford to commission this so I knew that if I wanted to do this costume, I would have to make it myself, with help. I was very fortunate that my friend offered to assist me in my build and yester

  5. From the words of the costume advisors, that is correct.

  6. One thing I always struggle with when looking at pictures is determining how dark the gray actually is. Sometimes what appears silvery actually looks darker in the sunlight in person. I personally prefer a dark gray, but I have seen acolytes get approved with both a darker gray and a silvery gray finish.

  8. Hi I made mine in one piece - as to a pattern, I havent found one yet, so I just winged it... you can see my build here : https://www.theflagshipeclipse.com/forums/index.php?/topic/3864-wip-nihilus-coft/ It is a bit hard to explain but I put velcro inside the vacumformed hood, sewed velcro on the fabric, attached it and then pulled it over the hood and down the back. For the front of the hood, I sewed in a piece of fabric to hide the gape between the form and the mask, I made the knot in front at the chest and shortened the cape, done.

  9. We have a couple people close to submitting in the fb group. The finishing of the neck seal is their last step. But as far as I know, there's no official CRL yet.

  10. Sorry for not seeing this thread before, but it is the Holidays and we are all doing this on our free time, that said - no costume is approvable out of the box, neither is the WA, but yes, others have been approved with the WA after making adjustments. It would be nice to get a clear message as to what your GML told you to adjust, instead of you only writing :" Rejected flat out" and then "The Skirt, The Tunic, the Cape, and my Hood were inaccurate/incorrect" I can tell you, what I have noticed : You´ll need to adjust your cape to go over your shoulders and down the back (not down y

  12. The first big discrepancy I came across was on the shirt. In the CRL, the side panels and sleeves of the shirt are depicted as being black, however in the show, they are in fact dark grey. The same colour as the dark grey stripe on the trousers. These are screenshots taken directly from the show.

  13. Hey all. I have been rocking an approved COTF Nihilus for at least a couple years. I love it, but I wanted to try out the old school version. Went with the Wicked Armor version with a modded mask (the one they offer has too big of circles on the details compared to the cover art from KOTO II. I used foam cut to shape for the breast plate. As much as it pains me not to use my fancy Nihilus saber, went with a plain KOTOR hilt. Not wild about the breast plate-looks kind of like a pot belly- but it is a lot cooler than COTF so should work fir warmer weather, which was kind of the idea. Also got a

  15. Very nice work when you get the the skirts and cape adjusted in lenght the fabric looks like it will flow very well. You will need to hide the ends of the knot, I did it by sewing them behind the knot on the inside. And yes the tunics needs to cross left over right. Personally I would shorten the tunics bottom edge as it would be more as to the CRL ref. : https://databank.501st.com/databank/Costuming:SL_darth_nihilus , so it sit a bit higher, and make sure the sleeves are straight, when you put them on, they are a bit twisted

  17. Looks nice, though you need to pull the cape over your shoulders and down behind your back, it is not correct like this. Good luck on the approval.

  18. Been watching this build for a while now & I gotta say it has been a pleasure watching it come together! Second Sister is a great character and you have an amazing job bringing her to life, the quality of your work on the soft parts is inspiring and I look forward to seeing this one finished!

  19. Hello! I've started working on a Darth Talon build. First order of business was the lekku: I made a sculpt from wire, foil, tape, and monster clay Then I began painting on layers of silicone It really looks like a candy apple here Fresh from the mold (after a little patching to repair a tear) Video showing movement https://i.imgur.com/NRwGAbs.mp4 Started painting the tattoos: Going to paint more tattoos still but that's all for today!

  20. Unfortunately, I cant weigh in on the width of the belts at this time as I am fairly unfamiliar with ins and outs of this particular costume, but as far as teh buckles go, I would check thrift/goodwill stores for belts first, you might be able to find a belt that has the buckles you're looking for. Another option would be to make them yourself out of sintra or even metal if you have the tools available. I have also seen folks 3D print buckles very similar to those, with files found on thingiverse.com. Hopefully this helps!

  24. Comm-Tower Spotlights: June 2020 We’re pleased to introduce you to The Flagship Eclipse member SL-62000; otherwise known as Scott Moss. Scott is from Bloodfin Garrison, and is our TFE Member in the spotlight for this month’s Newsletter! He took some time to have a chat with Lauren / Flutefreak05, one of our TFE PR Officers. FF: When did you join the 501st Legion and why? Scott: I joined the Legion in 2017. The reason has become clouded after these years of trooping. I want to say it was for the charity aspect of it but sometimes I think it was for the reason to dress up an

  25. Well, it has been some time, since I have made a new costume, but now I am finally at it again, and after having made 3 Nihilus costumes for others, 2 COFT and 1 KOTOR, I decided to go with the COFT version. This will be my 3rd TFE and my 9th 501st. costume . What can I say other than I love to make costumes, to find all the right parts and getting it all together. I´ve already done : inner and outer tunika quilted and ribbed sleeves innerskirt obi got the boots and gloves sorted out primed the two masks primed the formed hood from Twilék Pam Now I need to p

  28. There is no singular good boot, but as I was just conversing with another applicant, modified biker boots tend to work. Cut the strap from the ankle area and relocate to the toe area if it is long enough or get another strap of material and bam, square toed boots that meet requirements.

  30. Medical conditions (such as visual impairment) are not a disqualifying factor. With such, you build the costume to the limit of those conditions. Your best bet is to create a WIP here so that other Mara members and our Costume Advisors can assist you along the way. It is a lot easier to fix some things in the build process than it is once the costume is done.

  31. Looking great! I would say go a bit heavier on the weathering from the photos.

  32. I've been trying to find a material for the cape and hood with the faint lined patterns that show when lighting is shined on those parts. I'm pretty sure the lined texture is only supposed to signify a heavier material and not the actual texture itself. I have not found anything that I can use at all that is a organic material with a similar pattern. It's all polyester or synthetic fabrics and or don't have the same pattern on the texture. And it's never the right colour. They only stock solid black and it's impossibly to fade if it's synthetic. Linen has a courser texture but though it can lo

  33. Everything is looking great so far! BIG fan of the Mynock kit. The ABS kit really looks good. Mine was one of his original resin and cold cast aluminum kits. Alittle heavier but amazing detail! Looking forward to seeing this completed!

  40. Final set of supporting photos. These parts are made from resin. I still need to do a little bit of tidying up on these parts as there are some rough bits from the casting that need to be sanded down and smoothed off before painting. Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk

  43. This part I'd say is subjective and not necessary. So long as you can see a back plate, I'd call it good.

  44. And we now sport reference photos! The bracers and belt are going to need lots of finicky details, and NO idea yet how I'm going to do the back of her skirt... but we'll figure it out. now to see what in my fabric stash I can play with without having to venture outdoors...

  46. If you haven’t made the cowl it’s very easy to make gloves out of the same fabric. At least that was my solution. Then they’re guaranteed to match. There’s no requirement for the gloves to be leather for the off white version
