It´s somewhat old, and I didn´t even want to post it on the RPF, considering the amount of great work here, but looking at a thread with "props that eluded you" someone there posted something about Darth Revan´s Lightsaber.

Though I haven´t made his Saber, I made his suit, and I´d like to share with you, RPF. I hope you like it, and I´m here to answer to any inquiry about it.

The first picture is the only reference I had to make that costume besides a full frontal picture of his Helmet, and that was about it, so I had to go from there.

I think some pictures are dark, but there´s one taken with the flash that shows more details of the suit. Again, I´m here to reply to any question about it, should there be anyone who wishes to make it.

And about the pictures, thank you, Wackychimp.

Gundam, as I told you, I had only that picture for reference, specially because i´m not into gaming, then I never saw him moving.... I hope it didn´t stray TOO far.:) That´s the RPF - helping me out.:):)

the shoulder armor you have on there is actually just part of the cape on the in game model, and i think the chest piece is supposed to just be a leather like material, that being said, nice job for the limited reference material you had. if i would have known someone was attempting this costume, i would have shared this render i made by getting the model into 3dsmax and ripping it apart to see all the different views

Dear Lord, Jeff.. I´ll bear that in mind when and IF I make that again - and the armor is a leather-like material, it just doesn´t show in the pictures, it´s not as textured as I thought the camera would pick up.

I was WAY off then.... oh, well, can someone remove this topic? :lol

Should I have known the RPF had reference material on that, I`d have picked that up, but it was almost too clear that it was a big shoulder armor.....


oh, the horror....

No, Jeff. Not at all:) I´m very happy that you folks from the RPF liked it, I´ve got more stuff to show.... Lately I haven´t been posting my stuff or tooting my own horn because I´ve been out of the costuming loop for myself, only for others. Which means, only Jedi Suits, which, though very satisfying, don´t leave me much time to pursue other things.

Other thing - I would very much like to assist anyone who wishes to make that suit, for I gained a lot of knowledge from it, and it could prove useful to other people here on the RPF.

Thank you guys so much, it is truly a great thing when one sees one´s work fully recognized, and only here on the RPF I could attain the degree of satisfaction with it and myself that I intended in the first place.

Great to hear from you Hermes. You have been missed.

Really nice craftsmanship on your Lord Revan. I am very glad you thought to share this again, as I think many people benefit from such a post.

My best to you and Alessandra,
Thomas

Thank you so much, Thomas. I can´t describe how I feel, considering YOU´re complimenting me. I actually hope people benefit from this post, even with a blatant mistake on the shoulder pads, but then again, as the folks said, I couldn´t have known. However, the rest of the suit was relatively painless to make, and then I could lend a hand specially to Gundam Zeppelin, who seems to want one.

It was a relatively simple suit to make, specially the undersuit (which is a very long shirt, like a priest´s vest, but with some catches, and what else? The Helmet was sort of fudged, due to lack of reference, the front is almost accurate, but the back is fudged:)

Well, I still have the plans I used to make it, if you wish, Zeppelin.

May the Force be with you all.

Hermes.

Gundam, here is some concept art from the kotor web site that i think is even cooler than the finished model... i especially like the second one.




in addition to a sith trooper, i would also like to have a kotor era tusken. i love the big canister breather thing the masks have on them :)

OK - I had some synthetic leather-like material, but with a very fine grain, in red and black. So I printed out the face which was the only thing remaining in my reference that I didn´t post here (I.E - I deleted it). And then I drew the planes that made up the mask. I came to the conclusion that the face mask was easily done in a sturdy cardboard, and then I went for it, with all the reliefs existent in the original facemask.

The upper part was a trick, for since I didn´t have any reference, and couldn´t find, I supposed that no one would discredit me if I just fudged it, so I designed an upper part and the side parts that were to be beneath the hood.

Now we have a facemask and a design, but nothing to build it with, so I picked up EVA foam and made a helmet out of it, in very much the same shape as Revan´s helmet, and then I covered it in the same leather-like material and added a lens made out of a soda bottle, with window film, and there it is, a VERY lightweight, sturdy and beautiful Lord Revan Helmet.

I still have the designs if you wish.

Hermes.

The only thing I would do is darken your reds...in case no one pointed it out. It looks more ominous as a deep crimson.
