Hello!! I'm new here I want to make a costume of Asajj Ventress - her first outfit in the Clone Wars, with the skirt and the red-and-gold tabard - and I was hoping to find good advice here! I've already gone through all the threads about Ventress here, it's awesome to see what the other fans did, and to read everyone's advice!! I really hope I can make a beautiful costume that will meet the 501st standards! I have near zero experience in sewing and make-up though, so it will take a lot of learning and trying ^^ So far I have: - white wraps for the arms, legs and stomach. And I've ordered lilac paint for the shading, I should receive it soon! - the golden tan suede for the tabard, with red paint and burgundy paint (the burgundy is a bit too pink so I'll try mixing the two). - I'll soon have lightsabers!! *w* Someone awesome is 3D-printing them for me, he's already made one of them you can see it here: http://www.cosplayforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=46235&p=875469#p875469 They look soooo beautiful!! - a Graftobian bald cap, with the whole kit that goes with it. I haven't tried it yet. I think I'm gonna buy Prosaide and use it instead of the spirit gum that was in the kit, since it was recommended in other threads. - lots of make-up - which I hardly know how to use lol, but I've received tons of advice on another forum (eyeshadows in white, black and various purple, nail paint, eyeliner, lipstick, invisible powder...) I've tried the make-up once already for training (without the grey-white paint for now). The result wasn't super awesome but I'll train more! http://image.noelshack.com/fichiers/2015/26/1435258984-img-1122.jpg I want to buy a lot more baldcaps, since I want to train several times putting it on, and then I want to wear my costume often. I was considering buying a pack of 8 to PinkStylish, has any of you already try his caps? (http://charlie-short.com/shop_baldcaps08.html) Graftobian doesn't sell several caps at once I think, so I'll probably try those, unless you recommend something else For the body paint, I was thinking on buying Ben Nye Magicolor Liquid Paint. I've tried it already in green, for a costume of Maleficent. I looked nice and stayed very well on my face even though it was one of the hottest day of the year in Paris and I sweat a lot. The paint entirely rubbed off my arms, but that's because my arms were constantly rubbing against my cloak. No paint could have resist that x) With Ventress outfit though, there will be no such rubbing, so it should be fine I've seen some of you use an airbrush: what are the advantages, compared to a fondation brush or a puff? I've seen some veeeery expensive airbrushes online so it's scaring me a bit lol. Does it look better with the airbrush? is it easier to apply? Do you think a 15€ airbrush would work fine, or are the expensive ones really better? For my Maleficent costume I used a fondation brush. It wasn't very homogeneous on the first layer, but with several layers of paint it looked just fine. Maybe it's more difficult to paint the cap though, I don't know. Finally (for now ^^), I would like your advice for the fabrics of the midnight blue top. I know nothing of fabrics, do you recommend a fabric in particular? Thank you!!!!
Hi! I'm starting on this costume and looking at making the axe flail weapon, instead of the lightsabers. I have what might be kind of a dumb question: The short section between the handles, is it flexible or rigid? I don't remember seeing her use this (I haven't seen all of Clone Wars, tbh. *hides face in shame*) and this is the only image I can find, so I'm not sure how it's supposed to be wielded. Any ideas?
