Darth Bane WIP


Recommended Posts

Just completed the belt buckle. I found a wholesaler who sold me 5 blank buckles with a ridge along the edge that fit perfectly.

For the detail pieces in the buckle I took ABS plastic from my current Clone Trooper build, cut the shapes out and painted them a metallic color as well as painted the recesses of the buckle to be darker in color. 20220625_213933.thumb.jpg.b5fbc10480aa955aa378bb135b25681e.jpg20220626_131010.thumb.jpg.5346848d695dd3f3ffb5277d926b45d8.jpg

Hey everyone! A quick update. I have only a few minor things to do and Darth Bane will be done!! (Pending CRL approval) So I have decided to share with you a photo of what I have so far together.20220630_183619.thumb.jpg.6a18cfec4e60224ec9304e76f008df7e.jpg

To keep track for those folks watching this thread, the initial overlook by TFE Costume Advisors and LMOs is quite good! Just a few things to make this 100% complete.

-a balaclava is needed

-dark makeup to black out around the eyes

-greyish bodypaint/makeup for hands

-ever so slight weathering/black wash on the armor and fabric to get the mottled effect present on the reference layout


This really did come out fantastic!

What a wonderful build!

Just to make sure the hand makeup doesn't come off, make sure to use some makeup setting spray. Will make the need to reapply a lot less and you won't transfer onto anything else.

My friend Steven found that spandex thin gloves with nails attached can work as well with his palpatine!

duuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuude. this is epic!!!!! great job building such an amazing costume.

 

further to the hand make up thing. spray the barrier spray before and after makeup application and it will "sandwich" the make up in, preventing smearing and transfer to other surfaces.

 

cant wait to see trooping photos of this costume

This is some amazing work! I actually just signed up because I am also looking to do a Darth Bane, but from the book series, which is also lacking a CRL.

That's fantastic! I'd love to see that version added to the CRL. Wishing you the best of luck on it!

You should make a lightsaber to go with the costume!  This image recently came out eNY9KYi.jpg

I was just looking into this too. Great minds think alike.
