    Sound problems

    Hi. Now that I have used my Nihilus build a few times I have experienced a small problem. I use a blackout mask to cover eyes and neck and in front of that I wear a worbla mask do create the mouth. With this setup, people seen to have problem to hear me talk. Any suggestions on a solution? A bonus would be if the solution also gives me a voice closer to the one Nihilus have, to make a better experience for those I meet.

    SL-34300 Darth Nihilus Kotor 2 WIP

    I use worbla for the cowl and ears. Add some minimal support to make it stay in shape better. I used an ice cream stick for support.

    Nihilus from OutcastProps

    I am no expert on the subject yet, but here are some small input from my side. (feel free to correct me if I am wrong on any point) * The hood has no knot, as it should have. * The hood seems a bit to big IMO. * You will have to add a hard blackout mask since Nihilus needs a mouth now. * The quilts seem to be a bit far apart IMO. * The quilted fabric does not seem to differ from the fabric of the rest of the costume, as it should according to CRL. * I think the fabric is a bit to smooth for Nihilus old appearance. * The cape needs to be adjusted to not hang so much over the arms. * The boots on the pictures are not plain black boots and has visible straps, buckles, or laces. (not sure if the boots was included or not, I did not read the instructions). * The belt and gloves could use some weathering, but that is a simple fix. Hope this input helps in the process

    Early draft on "damaged" hilt

    Take two. Another coloring technique. And simple electrical wiring done.
  5. Thank you all Looking forward to my trooping's. And a lightsaber is WIP. Experimenting with a led I bought some years ago. Got a glow in all of the blade, but it is not as evenly spread in the blade as I hope. Blade is polycarbonate and i have tried with a layers of cellophane wrap and a reflective tape at the top to make the light "bounce back". Want to give it a try at least to have a first saber, and then maybe look at upgrading in the future
  6. Hi. Just wanted to share an early draft of my "slightly damaged" Nihilus hilt.
  7. Latest news. It is approved .
  8. Requesting access for Darth Nihilus https://www.501st.com/members/displaymemberdetails.php?userID=29970 Complete. ~Satya
  9. I know And I am in no rush, just very excited on the response.
  10. Update FYI. The application is still ongoing (it was some final adjustments on the white mask and trouble finding time to take photos) but I have hopes. Last sent (this friday) was profile and action photos to the GML. ps. Started the wotk on the lightsaber hilt. Will keep you updated. ds
  11. Minor fixes made and better lighting in photos. My gut feeling is that I am ready to send my application. is my gut feeling right?!
  12. First draft of blackout mask (here placed behind the white mask). Eyes not cut yet.
  13. Trial one on making backout mask by myself Formfit to my face.
  14. I have experimented with small buttons and velcro to have the cape stay in its place, so I can try move those holders so there is less excess on each side. I looked at it now and there is about 10 cm on each side that hang loose over the shoulder and that might be a bit to much. And I also experiment with ways to ease the weight on the back.
  15. You are correct on the light there and knot I think maybee the effect can be more visible if i can add a little more gap in where the to tunics cross (the outer tunic will cross maybee a bit lower than now) also? And the cape. Shoulder to shoulder in width? or should I make it a bit (and if so, how much) wider ? atm there is excess width as staed earlier.
