So i am going to (Attempt) to use this thread to journal the construction of my Sith Acolyte Kit. I have no clue how long this will ultimately take (weeks, months, etc) but as the work will be starting soon - i thought it was a good time to begin documenting the process. Short Background: Always been a huge Old Republic fan and when i saw the Acolytes in SWTOR - I knew i wanted to make one for myself. I have had the armor kit and helm for over 5 years now. I had intended for this to be my initial costume for 501st membership. I quickly realized i knew nothing about Kit building at the time and decided to go another way and put the kit in storage. I have used the Helm for other Sith Costumes in the years since. COTF Nihilus ended up being the first costume i applied to the legion with and now several years later one of the great Prop / Armor makers in my squad has agreed to help me on this journey of finally finishing the acolyte. Part Status: Items Acquired: Armor Kit: Vader's Vault / Mynock's Den V1 Helm: Mynock's Den Neck Seal: Darman's Props Leather Pouch Set: Darman's Props Black Boots: Crowprops Items Still be to Acquired: Robe: Vendor TBD Lightsaber: TBD (Leaning Vader's Vault) Robe: I am still looking for a robe vendor. I found 2-3 on etsy and have some emails out to other known robe makers - Burt no decision yet which way im going to go yet. Any recommendations are appreciated! Lightsaber: The Vaders Vault is most likely the one i would go with when the time comes - But no hurry on that item yet. The one picture for this initial update: First time the set has been out of it's Original Shipping Box in years - Taking Inventory before the project started:
Wanted to start getting this thing going as stuff is in the works on arriving so I thought I'd just mention all that's going on right now. I'd been a big fan of Bioware's Acolyte for years, and since I'm hitting the 2nd year anniversary of my 501st enlistment I felt it was time to start a new project. I've gotten several costumes done since I joined in 2017, 2 tie pilots, a clone, a Tanker on the way, but I always wanted some kind of a force user character. I wanted originally to do an old republic jedi....but, I've got some beef with the Rebel Legion and how they handle things, and after 3 costumes having such a hard time passing because of "opinions" of the judges, I decided to switch and get all Sithy cause it'll be fun. My armor is arriving from Mynock's Den....i was very impressed with Mynock's attention to detail and accuracy....lets face it, he really seemed to of been the best choice out of all the research I could find, and it wasn't a lot out there. for future purposes for anyone wanting to build his kit, https://vadersvault.com/armor/ My mask I purchased from Saberforge back in February, I really dug how it looked and it fit the price range I wanted to go for for the time being. Eventually I'll upgrade to Mynock's full helmet...but this'll be fine for now. https://saberforge.com/collections/masks-helmets/products/acolyte-mask?variant=12315978530896 Neckseal I purchased on etsy through Darman Props. https://www.etsy.com/listing/533452618/sith-acolyte-neck-seal?ref=yr_purchases I've had a few purchases from him over the last year like a holster for my blaster to go with my Resistance Pilot in time for TLJ premiere with my crew....so I know he's pretty reliable. Gloves were purchased on amazon at a fairly decent price and they don't have any markings to worry about so there's not gonna be any need for modifications, and tthey breathe so that's a plus! https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07GBWBM81/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Boots I'm taking cue from First0rder and his purchase from overstock.com https://www.overstock.com/Clothing-Shoes/Genuine-Grip-Footwear-Mens-Slip-Resistant-Twin-Gore-Boot-Black-Leather/7936018/product.html Robes will be coming from Mystik Merchant as she seemed to of been the best price wise and length of time. While I'm not in a rush at all, I don't wanna get this kit completed by the fall when we start getting active again in my garrison. https://mystikmerchant.com/AcolyteRobe Undersuit though.....this one is tricky, and I'm hoping for some recommendations. I'm at the heavy set side, gained some weight after a very stressful move recently putting me at around 54 inches on my waist. I really don't want to use something like a TK or Clone undersuit, being one piece is alright, but I wanna feel comfortable at the same time...honestly I feel a little casual baggyness is more acceptable than skin tight. So any ideas on what to do like examples would be appreciative.
Hey! I'm new to this forum, I need some help and direction. I've wanted to join the 501st for a while, and I decided to jump right into building a Sith Acolyte Eradicator costume a few months ago. I've been doing some hobby prop making for a couple of years, and I thought I'd jump right in with a foam armor build. I didn't consider that it might not be approved by the 501st. So I built the thing from scratch (other than a Wicked Armor mask and a Holocron saber), and in my opinion it turned out pretty beautiful. I knew that I'd probably need to make some adjustments, especially to the chest piece, which needed some additional forming, but I amassed all my WIP photographs and put together detailed build instructions on the Instructable website and put in my application for the 501st. So imagine my surprise when I received an email letting me know that my costume wasn't going to work for the 501st. Honestly, I felt a little crushed and annoyed at first. But now, here I am, a humbled version of my former cosplaying self. And I need some help here so that my next attempt doesn't go the same direction as this previous build. I've started a second build, this time using PVC board for the construction material. The chest piece is mostly done, and so are the gauntlets, but when I asked my GML if I was headed in the right direction, he suggested that I post here for feedback. And so, here I am. I would really appreciate your feedback and suggestions.
Hi everyone! Last weekend was the first time i supported Nordic Garrison here in Sweden at Comic Con, and now i want to build my own costume and i'm gonna do an Sith Acolyte. Does anyone know anyone who makes kits? I already know about Mynock but aparently he will not take any more commission work at the time being. Thanks alot! /Alex
