    Planning questions for DN Build

    Hello again Gemma, glad to see you two making progress on your DN build. The majority of the boots won't be see anyway so I would say the height of them isn't a problem.

    Planning questions for DN Build

    Welcome to the forums, I look forward to seeing your progress. When I made my Nihilus I purchased 20 yards of fabric all together. I never ended up using all of it and had quite a bit left over. For reference I'm 6'3" tall and not skinny lol. For the saber I wouldn't worry about it for your approval since it is not required. I personally use a Bellicose from Ultrasaber for mine because I feel it has a very KOTOR look to it.

    Help with Revan?

    I personally use a red day blade I got from Vader's Vault on all my troops. You don't have to worry about having to light up the saber, and it usually looks better if you are trooping outside in the sunlight.

    Help with Revan?

    If you're not wanting to make the boots yourself you can look into Crowprops, they are a bit pricey but are great quality. For the lightsaber I've only ever hear horror stories about ordering from Saberforge. I know that Vader's Vault makes a great Revan saber, but again can be a bit pricey.
  6. I'll have to think if I know of anyone locally. Meanwhile you should start a WIP thread in the Visas Marr section, I'm sure there are others that have done the costume that can help you out.
  7. Congrats on the approval!!! Welcome fellow Lord of Hunger!
  8. Welcome to the forums! I'd love to see a Visas Marr in MN, especially since I'm one of the only people that does Nihilus there lol. If you need any help don't hesitate to ask.

    Darth Plagueis - a new CRL?

    I hope to see you at Celebration, I would be very interested to see this costume in person.

    Saberforge Nihilist?

    I have not personally bought this saber, but it is definitely one I would like to. I think it's a great looking version of Nihilus' saber. Either way you don't need to have a saber for Legion approval.

    Ready made nihilus...

    If it does not come with the leather belt that is shown in the pictures then you are alright. The inner skirt is supposed to be split down the middle. From the ones I've seen in the past, this is not always the case. There should also be two separate tunics, and I've seem some before that don't. From what I've seen recently too it seems that the cape tends to be too short. As for the mask I have seen it be approved by GML's, so you may want to make sure about that.

    Visas Marr WIP

    Welcome to the forums, and good luck on your costume. I personally don't know of any vendors for Visas Marr, but I know there are others on here that will. At first glance that costume doesn't look too bad, however there are a couple of things I noticed. The sleeves on the costume don't look long enough, or have a large enough opening for draping. The veil also looks a little off, like it conforms to the person face too much, but that might just be the way the person was wearing it. Just a few of my observations, but I'm sure our Visas experts can go into more depth.

    Darth Nihilus: COTF Update

    I'm not sure why this changed for the COTF version of Nihilus, but I would like to propose we change it back to the original. Blackout Mask Sculpted black mask with visible mouth details. The costumer’s eyes are blacked out, and must be hidden with the fabric or mesh fabric behind the eyes of the mask. Face Covering The costumer's face is blacked out behind the white mask. This may be accomplished with a sculpted black mask or a tight-fitting fabric blackout mask. The eyes are hidden with black fabric behind the eyes of the mask or the fabric of a blackout hood.
