  1. New guy here! I've been working on a spinning GI saber for a bit and it's starting to come along. I have a youtube channel documenting the build but I also wanted a build log for better documentation and thought 'what better place then with people who can give me some sound guidance.' So here I am! Looking forward to chatting with you grand folks. I'm pretty far along in the project, so I'll be updating this log until it catches up with progress.

  2. I am approved with both versions of the wicked armor Nihilus. You have to add to both a bit to do it. The KOTOR2 mask they make would probably be approvable, but I changed the center detail to match the CRL better. You will also need to add the chest padding. I used a sheet of open cell foam, cut to fit. I recommend a different obi, but the one they sew into the skirt is approvable. In all cases, the wicked armor will give you the materials to do it, but go through the CRL and make it match up once you have it in hand.

  7. Now it's really just neck seal!! (Please say saber is an option lol) The shoulder was smaller than the size I ordered but it's not bad for right now I think. Probably I'll slowly rebuild it later ;^)

  8. Hello everyone, I have put together my Darth Revan build and summitted it for approval. I need to send more close up pics and stuff, but it was suggested to post here as well to get opinions from current members that had approved costumes. But I am not exactly sure where to post the pics at. Obviously the lightsabers are not part of the actual build, but this is the full costume minus BOOTS and actual PANTS which I was looking for ideas on where or what to buy. Thanks in advance for the help,

  12. It can be a bit tricky to find all the parts, perhaps one in here with the KOTOR version can help with a vendor for the gloves ? I have the coft version, where the gloves are a bit different.

  14. Your progress looks excellent! I really admire the effort that went into the gauntlets. But yes I agree that matching the armor to the helmet more would be a good idea. ?

  15. Hello! I meant to toss an introduction thread sooner but it slipped my mind. I have nothing to show as of yet but I am working on a Second Sister build. Once I have stuff to share I'll be sure to start a WIP thread. Beyond that I am living in Germany, new to the 501st and also working on an Imperial Staff Officer costume. Happy to be here!

  22. The mask looks too cartoonish, if that makes sense. There should not be an expression to it as it is an emotionless skull, but this mask makes it look like it is smiling.

  23. If you take a look at the CRL here : https://databank.501st.com/databank/Costuming:SL_darth_nihilus , your mask is sadly not looking like that. The eye holes are to big, the silver design is not supposed to have a submerged groove around the edge like yours have, and the cheekbones are to pointed if you look at it from the front + they are not skull like enough, when you look at it from the side. The black mask should also have its nose through the nose of the white mask, which yours doesn´t seem to do, because the hole is to small. I had to redo my 3d printed mask to get it to look more like a skull for exampel, I had to resculp the cheekbones and the eye sockets, before I could get it approved. Small corrections also to your costume, your sleeves needs to be either pulled down in your gloves or sewn in, so they doesn´t puff at the elbows., your belt looks to be wider then the approximately 5 cm and your obi then also is to wide + your outer tunic needs to be shorten, as it is much to long. And it is hard to see, but do you have 2 tunics and two skirts ? and a picture from the back and sides would also be nice, to see the costume from all sides. I love your action photo, nice effects on that I know, it is no fun to hear that there needs to be made corrections to ones costume, if you want to join the Legion with it, but we are here to help and assist in every way we can.

  24. Your best bet is to ask in the 501st coin group on Facebook or wait until the next run that will be coming in the next while of this year

  27. The mask is correct, there are two versions of the mask that MWA sells for the different versions. The gloves do not look like letter, or leather-like material.

  28. Decided to try and build a Sith Acolyte. This will be my first 501st costume. Cast and painted the helmet so far. Just need to do some more weathering to it. Working on armour and starting to chase down some of the other components. Painted the light saber. Still needs some more pieces added and paint finished and weathered.

  30. 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.

  33. Next up are the gloves. In the CRL, these are depicted as being a medium grey in colour. I believe that these should be a dark grey, matching as closely as possible, the colour of the sleeves. (this can be seen in the second image above)

  34. I am convinced that there is no hard armour on the boots at all, so I completely agree with you. I believe that what he's wearing are standard officer boots with a flared cuff worn around the ankle. And I also agree that the shins look different to the rest of the armour. The colouring, lighting and texture of the shins match the feet and don't match the rest of the armour, so I'm in agreement there too.

  38. Love that fabric you're using for the cape and tunic and skirt. Is this taken in a mirror? The tunics need to go left over right.

  44. I went to 4 movie troops since Thursday night and was happy that my Second Sister was very well received. Several recognized who she was or at least that she was an Inquisitor. Visibility was fairly poor though especially in dark theater lobbies, so I am hoping that the new version of the helmet when I receive it will be a bit better.

  46. Hey Guys and Gals May have just started out but I am determined to get my second approved costume that isn't a super hero; first one being my TB. Star Wars was my first love thanks to my father and the Extended Universe is probably a fav part of it. I am aiming to get this version of Mara completed. I will Track Down more clearer photos and references. This is just one I have found of the many I will be sewing my own suit at this point as I am an avid seamstress and I specialize in stretch/lycra from my superhero costumes I have completed. I have a pattern by GSTQ Fashions that I used for a Rogue body suit. Anywho. Just some ideas I am throwing about. If anyone has some great ideas on black plain, low healed boots let me know. - Vicky (Aka. Chelsea) PS. I am freaking excited to get started. Did I mention that?

  47. Week 4: May 31 Just a little glove-work today. I attached a piece of black Velcro (the soft side) to the glove to cover a cap near the wrist where my skin could show. I also spray painted the logo on the gloves black. June 1 I heard back from Dan B about how he attached the front and back of the shin armor in a way that would allow them to come on and off easily. I call this the Thalizar Method 1. Glue rare earth magnets to the inside of the front shin and the outside of the back shin near the ankle. Line them up so they will connect to each other when you put the shin on. 2. Attach the shin buckles to the shin using velcro. You’ll need to take these on and off each time you suit up. 3. Attach about 3 inches of Velcro to the interior/ top of the shins- front and back. Half of the Velcro on the front shin should hang over the side of the shin- this is what will attach to the Velcro located on the interior of the back shin. It’s kinda like how TK’s attach their shins, but there is no cover strip used here. June 2-6 Assembling the boot armor was another slow undertaking, but Dan B had sent me several pics of his assembly strategy, so I felt pretty confident about the process. I placed the sides and toe armor around my boot to see how they would fit. Luckily I didn’t need to trim very much armor. Then I used wider pieces of black elastic and E6000 to start hooking them together and cover the gaps between the individual armor pieces so that none of my boot will be visible. I attached a small piece of foam under the toe armor so that it would stay level with everything else, and finished off by running a strap from one side to the other underneath the boot. This will help keep everything in place when I walk around.
