    The expressions of the couple at the end were priceless.

    And great job on the costumes and makeup.

    Surely someone from the forum knows someone who knows someone who made the costumes? If so and you are lurking I just want to offer congratulations on an amazing job well done. It's hard to tell specifics from the videos (cast?milled? vacformd? Mix?) but holy cow they look amazing.


    Side note I think my new paint for Shae is a good match for what is seen here so I may just go ahead and use it ;) Also, this is totally inspiring me to break out my dremel and tidy up my Shae costume. Mine works for the 30foot rule even 10 but I want it to look this crisp and clean ;)

    I've been waiting for someone else to make th Sith Acolyte armor so I can copy some ideas to improve my low budget costume. It's a shame that it appears that all of the Sith Acolytes had the same facial patterns.

    I love the Malgus costume too, he looks massive. Good work to everyone invloved.

    That’s great. My guess is that it was put on by the folks at Star wars old republic, and they supplied all the costumes and sabers. The photography is to go to be amateur. Great job.

    That was fun. The number of plain clothes jedi that joined in made the whole thing worth watching.

    I too would love to know who made the costumes, I know it was probably a commission done for Bioware. But still this is pretty impressive, and I love some of the reactions on people's faces.

    I'm wondering if LucasFilm themselves made the costumes. The Jedi were good, the Acolytes great, but the Malgus was amazing.

    Kind of a boring flash mob. But yes, the costumes were cool.

    There's really not much they could do with this, given that you can't fight using fake lightsabers and have it not look cheesy. So I get why they just had to strike a pose and hold it...but it was kinda boring.

    Nope, these are totally different :) Those were from an E3 a few years ago.

    Take a look at the shape of the upper chest armour and you'll see a huge difference just there. Then the shins (most notably the gap below the knee in the new armour vs the older), and the belly... it's very different. If they were by the same folks they are a totally new set of sculpts and molds.

    To put you out of your misery! My friends Dragon Dronet and Wanda Piety (his wife) built these costumes n only three weeks for this project. Additionally Dragon got to play the part of Darth Malgus. Their website is www.renegadeeffects.com but has not been updated recently.

    I would love to be a part in something like that. I am so far from civilization that I should be a jedi monk.

    Sorry for the very late bump but thank you!! It's wonderful to be able to know who made this :) Even if there won't be a breakdown of how it was made ;)

    Please pass on my congratulations. :) As a fan of the design and a fan of quality work I appreciate these on all levels.
    I hope they are able to update their site with the new costumes soon :D

    Freeze mob? I've never heard of that before. I was ready for them to bust into fighting. Then, NOPE! It was a cool vid none the less though.

    Resurrects thread from the ashes. ;) Sorry for the thread revival but I just found this thread.

    I first saw this flash mob vid probably not long after it came out. However there was something in that vid that did not click the first time. I later saw it again in June of 2012 when someone posted it on a Star Wars based forum that I frequent. Imagine my surprise when I realized that the saber that Darth Malgus was holding is one I made and sold back in 2008 (albeit with the addition of what appears to be plastic/resin claws bolted on to the choke point on the blade holder/emitter). When I first created the saber, I named it "Saber 15". Creative I know :p

    I originally made that saber for Lou Klein (he is NOT the guy playing Darth Malgus in the youtube vid). Lou is the guy behind the Star Wars fan Film "Contract of Evil" and "Crossroads of Destiny". If I remember right, he originally bought that saber for a sequel to Crossroads of Destiny but that sequel never got made. As such, I thought I'd never see that saber again.

    Lou is an excellent costumer and fan film maker. He is also a ninjutsu instructor (or practitioner, not sure which) and he appeared on an episode of Spike TV's Deadliest Warrior as one of the authorities on ninjutsu. He bought two sabers from me that I made (sabers 14 and 15) as well as had me add electronics (no sound) to one of his Saber Forge hilts. Anyways, I was quite stoked to see it again. Seeing it that vid made my week.
