  1. @Cadet , also, it would be rare (if ever) to get approved on first submission. It can take months of back and forth to make sure the accuracy and consistency are in place. Personally, I'm not aware of any costumes that are approvable out of the box with the possible single exception being Boba Fett from BobaMaker ($8,400 USD and 36 month waiting period). You have all the pieces, now have some fun and enjoy the approval journey. It's worth it, we all go through it, and it can be an exciting time as you build a super accurate and custom fitted suit. I'm looking forward to seeing your final
  2. Thanks Heavy. You're always helpful. My COTF needed corrections too, though not as extensively. I had asked WA to make mods for me per CRL and it made everything go more smoothly.
  3. Oh, I see. Sorry to hear that. Thanks for the feedback though, it's good to know what has been approved and what has not.
  4. Help us out... What did you apply for? What was rejected and why? KOTOR II has a CRL... https://databank.501st.com/databank/Costuming:SL_darth_nihilus-kotor
  5. Hey! That looks great! PM enroute to you.
  6. @DarthCephalus should know, so I've tagged him. He just received approval on his KOTOR. I got approved for Darth Nihilus COTF, so it's a little different.
  7. Oh, ok. They look really good though. My Wicked Armor COTF Nihilus was approved in a day. I was really impressed. Their construction and fabrics are very high quality. More importantly, they were willing to make small customizations to meet the CRL, like the 2 ovals on top of the mask (vs the 3 he normally casts), which meant I didn't have to "fix" anything. It seems they (WA) are consistently producing high quality, as yours looks fabulous. Can a Nihilus COTF and Nihilus KOTOR troop together? LOL. If so, we'll have to do that sometime...or meet up at a convention so I can by you a soda

    Nihilus

    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.
  9. Bro! Looks great! I'm Gomcse from the YouTube comments! Loved your recent review of the sound fonts. Nihilus just rocks... By the way, your gloves look fantastic. Could you share the source and type?
  10. Actually, the cloth blackout mask has been removed as an option for COTF Nihilus. This might have been updated in the last 2 months, since the option was available when I started working on this costume in March 2020. Now the only option is the hard plastic black mask.
  11. How do you hook the saber hilt to the Nihilus costume...? I don't want to hang it on the leather belt, and the CRL doesn't show any hooks anywhere. I suppose I can add some sort of contraption to the belt I use for the skirt, but is there a consensus on what to do...? Thanks!
  12. Approved this morning! I have to pull the Cape back at troops, as previously mentioned. The good news is that this photo allowed the GML to see details.
