    I think its time for another discussion.........the costumes Disney makes for their actors.

    This reminds me a bit of discussions in the 501st stormtrooper detachment about what a good stormtrooper costume should look like--should it be screen accurate, or should it look like what the actual Empire would have wanted--i.e., armor that was in fact symmetrical etc. Plus, the armor worn...

    Dark Jedi personal character armor/robes

    Pants/knee pads I sewed the pants based on a pattern I’ve used for a number of costumes. They have front and back pockets, which are of course super-useful to have at a con for your wallet and phone, and belt loops for my actual belt, which is hidden by all the chest armor/obi stuff. I use...

    Dark Jedi personal character armor/robes

    Here's my newest cosplay. It's my first personal character. His name is Amet Risu; he's a "Dark Jedi" who served with Exar Kun and Ulic Qel-Droma during the Great Sith War, thousands of years before the movie trilogies. Kun and Qel-Droma's various costumes are the strongest influence on my...

    Moon Knight (magic Egyptian armor version)

    Thanks! Yes, I like that Moon Knight costume that you linked to as well. Hard to pick which costume when you're doing Moon Knight, there are multiple good options.

    Moon Knight (magic Egyptian armor version)

    Continuing... Hood. The hood is not attached to the cape. I made a couple versions to figure out how to get the shape I wanted at the peak. It also has a firm “beak” look—i.e. the front is pointy. I kept the front stiff by putting craft foam in-between the two layers of fabric. After a few...

    Moon Knight (magic Egyptian armor version)

    I created a cosplay of Moon Knight, wearing his “magic Egyptian armor” as seen in the 2014 volume of Moon Knight, issue 3. Here are the various parts, and their creation. This was probably my most ambitious project yet, and required several techniques that were new for me, so it was a...

    Two-Face (a quick build)

    I re-did this with a new take on the hair. I wasn't super-happy with the wig earlier. Two-Face's hair is usually done two ways: one has the "evil" hair spiked and either all-white or colored in some way, which is what I did above. The other way, which you see in the Aaron Eckhart movie...

    Savage Opress saber build (complete)

    I'm actually working on my own, along with a complete Savage costume, so I've been following this build. Since I just started getting active posting on here, and this just came back up on the boards, I just wanted to say how great it looks. Mine is mostly going to be built from TCSS pieces...

    Two-Face (a quick build)

    My most recent costume is Two-Face. (I’ve also added my Jawa and Molecule Man costumes recently.) This was a super-quick costume, I only had a couple days. I was originally inspired by the version of Two-Face that is currently appearing in All-Star Batman. That version has a red suit coat...

    Jawa Costume and First Thread!

    Wow, those are actually pretty sweet for some kids in the 70s!

    1982-era Molecule Man Build

    CONTINUING: The pauldron is multiple pieces of thin foam, that are attached by backing the parts where they meet with more foam behind them. The cracks are filled with caulk, although the lines are becoming more visible as I wear it. The foam is somewhat heat-molded to create the bend...

    1982-era Molecule Man Build

    I made this Molecule Man costume earlier this year (it's the second costume I've posted here, the first was a Jawa for my son). I’ve been trooping with the 501st for years in some armor, but this was my first build completely from scratch, and required a lot of different materials and skills...
