1st Completed Maladi - Photo shoot

30 posts in this topic

Guest Anonymous

I'm pleased to announce, that with the (very patient) painting assistance of a friend, I've finally been able to take the long awaited photos, of my complete costume.

 

Please don't Photoshop any of these photos without asking and obtaining my permission first. Thanks! I will be adding more photos to this, but here are two to start.

I have intentionally blurred the bottom of the image, for personal reasons.

..and here are another couple photos.

one more added...

 

Not the best photo, but I thought this one looked mopy and depressed -- Classic Maladi.

I hope you enjoy my photos.

Molto grazie! :oops:

 

Thanks very much... everyone!

I'm surprised by the positive response this costume has received, but I certainly appreciate it!

 

I'll try to post additional photos, revealing the hip amour, soon (sometime later in next month or two). But if I'm unable to I apologize, and offer that you will be able to see me at Dragon*Con 2008 -- which will probably be the only other time I wear Maladi this year. :? The body paint is difficult to work with, and even harder to keep from flaking or rubbing off.

Sweet! The more really cool EU characters we get, the more the movie ones start to fade to the back.

VERY cool! I was looking forward to seeing someone complete this one. Glad to see some well deserved justice and work go into this character!

This looks fantastic, especially the headpiece! I'm thinking of making a Maladi in the near future and I was wondering if you ever submitted this for approval, or standards were made up in a rough draft?

I'm trying to get some more approved costumes because I hate putting all the work and love into a costume and not being able to wear it at my local official troops. I'm willing to work on setting up the standards for this, but I was just wondering if there was some reason they hadn't been done already?

Well, no one was willing. ^^ It's often just this simple. Why wasn't this little piece of paper written much earlier? No one written it until now.

 

Ronin, if you're gonna work on the Standards for Lady Maladi and on her costume, I can offer a friend of mine. She's working on her Maladi with a great dedication. Maybe you two can collaborate on this. Just PM me about this. :)

They haven't been done since Maladi doesn't have the references needed at this point. The Maladi in this thread is my other half and hasn't submitted due to lack of references.

@lack of references: Well, that shouldn't be a problem anymore. ^^

 

Oh? Are there some we've missed? I only know of the comics.

Star Wars Legacy Comics

Star Wars: The Ultimate Visual Guide - Special Edition

The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia

Star Wars Saga Edition: Legacy Era Campaign Guide

 

Sometimes Wookieepedia can come in handy. I've checked and all four have a visual representation of Darth Maladi.

Do the other sources have original artwork, or are they just reprints of the comic art? I don't think "double dipping" with the same picture would count; it hasn't in the past.

I can't tell about "The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia" but the pictures in the "Legacy Era Campaign Guide" are definetly original artwork. I just looked it up again and can tell that everything displayed in the RPG book is original work of the artists.

 

On the other side, "Star Wars: The Ultimate Visual Guide - Special Edition" contains of recopies - but of "Legacy 0" respective "Legacy 1/2" (here's a preview page). I don't know if these issues are counting to be part of the ongoing series or mere additional material.

Very nice work! May I ask what you made the headpiece from? And what brand of paint you used for the makeup? Any troubles with it rubbing off? Curious since making myself red is also in my future! ;)
