    Apr 2, 2013, 9:08 PM - Help my girlfriend pick a costume #1

    Hey guys. So my girlfriend wants to get into the 501st when I do with Fett. The problem we are having is that she can't decide on what to do. She's a newish Star Wars fan. She's 5'3". Skinny. She already said no slave leia lol. She likes the idea of Ahsoka Tahn or Aayla Secura but at the same time wants to do a dark side costume.

    She has to be so difficult any suggestions? I talked to Daniel Logan about this a few months back and he told her to get in a stormie haha

    She really just doesn't want to show that much skin. She is an awkward person as it is and going to event in it would be the death of her lmao

    Maybe Assajj Ventress? It's a girl and dark side, but the head presents a problem. Maybe Lumiya or Tahiri Veila, or Darth Talon.

    Does she specifically want to join the 501st? You mentioned Ahsoka so it sounds like she's also open to the RL. In addition, there are some amazing Femmandos in the Mercs. If she's a shy person she might find looking out from a T-visor pretty liberating

    Yeah she likes those but wants to be apart of the legion specifically. She just likes characters that she doesn't have to wear a helmet to be but I'm trying to convince her to do a tie pilot or a fem Tusken.

    Darth talon would be sweet, but require a lot of makeup. Have her do a tk, its fairly cheap and she would have a helmet on so she won't get too self conscience.

    Yeah Darth Talon is cool and rare, but he also said that she doesn't want to show a lot of skin.
    What about Zam or Aurra Sing? There's also Juno Eclipse from The Force Unleashed or a generic officer.

    Juno Eclipse or Mara Jade? I'm in the process of putting together the flightsuit version of Admiral Daala which could be another option.

    Asajj is just bada-- .

    There's also bad girl Barriss.

    How about a bad twi'lek like Eleena Daru or Vette?

    Hmmm there's heaps out there where you don't have to show skin. Maybe consult wookieepedia :P

    a bespin Leia would be cool. Or a carbonite chamber Leia, which is esentially a hoth Leia. Goes with boba. When I'm done with my boba, I hope to convince my wife to go Imperial officer of some type. I was thinking Naval trooper but that hemet is pricey!

    There's always crewman or Imperial Officer. Neither is ridiculously expensive but when done well, they can look really good. Plus, as an officer she can sneer at people.

    It's just awesome that she is wanting to get into costume! My Wife is dreading the day that I have my Fett done, because she in no way... EVER...will go get into a costume for a Con or anything like that. I've tried, but she is way too introverted to even try.

    That is where masks come into play.

    No need to be embarrassed with your face hidden.

    Yeah, that's what I told her. She can either be that "normal" chick walking around with Boba Fett, or she can be behind a mask hanging out with Boba Fett.

    She really likes the idea of being a bad twi'lek. What's the best place to get one of the head pieces or to learn to make it? The Dented Snake hair?
  18. Apr 4, 2013, 12:20 PM - Re: Help my girlfriend pick a costume #18

    Bo Katan!!! In The Clone Wars she is frequently without her helmet. It would go right along with your Fett.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Another that would be GREAT with Fett, and her frame/height would be Boushh!!!! Relatively easy costume to walk around in as well!!

    An easy way to ease into 501st costume is Imperial Crewman, err crewperson I guess in this case. Great starting point - relatively inexpensive, comfortable, unobstrusive, easy "build" process, a face character that fits in well with the bad guy masked peeps, and one that she could troop at events with you.

    That said, many 501st events are joint 501st / Rebel Legion events, so while you're working on Boba, maybe you could ease her into things by starting as good guy RL pairs like Han/Leia (also relatively inexpensive, and a good couples option), Rebel pilots, etc, Jedi, etc.

    As for Twi'leks, I understand that Pam makes some really, really well-regarded headpieces, P&S Costume Creations.

    Cheers, good luck

    I definitely want to see more imperial officers and crewmen (and not just because I can make and sell you imperial rank badges). It's a neat costume, and it makes a group of troopers look more professional. It's also a simple costume, almost eliminating the need for handlers.

    How about Bastila from KOTOR?

    No helmet, go with the dark jedi robes from the game (she can wear- SPOILER IF YOU HAVEN"T PLAYED BELOW!!!- I apologize if already spoiled... ) if she want's to be in the 501st, and is a very modest costume so she won't feel awkward in big groups. Also a nice character if she likes the double bladed light sabers .




    (when she got converted to the dark side by Darth Malak so it'd be cannon)

    What about Komari Vosa?


    Or she could do a Rebel Pilot, or Padme... (A well dressed Padme)
  25. Apr 14, 2013, 2:15 AM - Re: Help my girlfriend pick a costume #25

    I would suggest Boushh, or Bo Katan. Zam would be pretty awesome to see as well. Stature wise Boushh would be excellent for your gf. Although if she wants an evil Twi-lek maybe see if Vette is accepted within the legion yet.


    I would suggest talking to Pam about her lekku head tails for the twi-lek. Pam's Twi'lek Creations

    This is also a great forum for twi-lek costume help. Twi'lek Celebration - Index page
