  1. I understand that feeling. I'm looking forward to seeing someone finish this costume and we get a CRL for it. Barriss is a cool character and I'd love to see her make some sort of resurgence in maybe the final season of Clone Wars.
  2. The shape of your skirt and the way if falls looks good but I'm worried that it may be too light a brown. It could be due to the lighting in the room that makes it look that light. As was instructed to me by a judge, the brown needs to be extremely dark, almost looking black in the shade
  3. Progress is continuing slowly on this build. One step closer.
  4. As Kylo I've been called Darth and Dark Vader. In my clone I've been called Stormtrooper, Boba Fett and space man. My wife in her Jawa has been called Ewok, Wookie and Chewbacca.
  5. I'm not the GMO so take my opinion with a grain of salt. In my opinion the shirt looks passable. There are a lot of inconsistencies in her shirt so I would say keep it for now. As for the buckle. As long as it looks right you should be good. Doesn't matter what it's made of as long as it has the right look to it.
  6. Update on the bracer progress. This design is a lot detailed than what it appears at first glance.
  7. Ah I see. I had not realized that the CRL rules had changed. Thank you for the info. Yeah unfortunately we have a lot of CRLs that are empty across the whole legion. I appreciate you taking the time during the holidays to try and remedy that for the detachment. I can agree on the shawl and blue lightsaber. I added them as optional since she always had them until that point. I wasn't sure if the CRL team would want them to be a part of the CRL or not.
  8. I think it's a good start. I'm sure you already know but the CRL itself won't be approved till someone has built the whole thing. I created the CRL for a clone and that's the way it was done then. I've been putting together a CRL for this costume for my wife's build here. As for color I'd say that the whole shirt is the same color across the whole thing. Just the ribbing. Although depending on lighting it can make it appear a slightly different shade. As for CRL this is what I've some up with so far. I hope this helps anyone trying to build it and I would love to discuss this build and the CRL with anyone interested. 1. Dark blue shirt. Form fitting with horizontal ribs covering entire shirt. Vertical seam lines run from the wearers collar bones to base of the shirt. Sleeves come to a point on top of the hands Head cowl to cover wearers hair and keep hair out of costumers face. (Can be attached to shirt or separate piece) 2. Floor length skirt. Dark Brown to black in color. Skirt sits just above the hips and over the shirt 3. 2" wide brown leather belt with 2 belt loops on each hip. Rectangular belt buckle with spiral accents along border and heart shaped center piece. Covertec lightsaber clip worn on left hip next to buckle. 4. Brown Leather bracer with tan chevron accents along the upper edges. tan accents at the base and Jedi Comlink. To be worn on the left forearm only. 5. black boots with 1" - 2" heel. Boots should be above the ankle but no higher than mid thigh. No visible laces or zippers. 6. Makeup. Costumer should have light green to yellow complexion on face and hands. Additionally costumer should have 19 dark purple to black diamond shaped tattoos below the eyes and across the nose matching references. Each hand has 4 matching diamond shaped tattoos just below where the sleeves end on top of the hand. Costumers lipstick and fingernails should be painted dark purple. Optional pieces. Hooded capelet and shawl. Grey in color with dark grey marble style repeating pattern. Capelet does not extend past the waist. Barriss Offee style lightsaber with blue blade Ventress style curved hilt sabers with red blades

  11. Thank you for the info. I figured there might be some adjustments, just wasn't sure what they would be. If I decide to go that route I'll keep everyone updated.
  12. Hello all. I've been contemplating doing a Darth Nihilus for a while now and wanted to ask opinions on the MWA costume. I know a lot of people build their own but I have neither the time nor the equipment to do so. I'm honestly not sure if I want to go with the COTF or KOTOR version. Both are really cool in their own way. Any insight or suggestions would be much appreciated.
  13. I thought the guy in front was an Emperors Hand. Either way anyone have any other pics of him? The force is definitely strong with that guy. I read that book as well and loved it.
  14. Best of luck. Hope to see a new Starkiller costume approved.
  15. It might be me or just that particular picture but it looks to me like the piece under the shoulder armor drops to low. I don't know though, maybe just my imagination
