    Apr 29, 2011, 8:23 PM - Darth Nihilus Costume Pictures #1

    My friend is currently working on a Nihilus costume. He plans on wearing it to a convention eventually and he says he wants to wear it for Halloween. He's done most of the work, but I've helped him a lot and he told me to post pictures so you can guys can tell us what you think!

    Here are the WIP pictures:

    We ordered the mask off of mywickedarmor, and it should be coming in the mail very soon. Also, we are at a complete loss as to how to make the hood, so if anyone can help us with that, that would be great!

    Quick Update: We are thinking about sewing a seperate hood piece and attaching that onto the cape we already have. We might also put something inside the hood to give it the square shape that Nihilus has. If we do that, we will probably use something like cardboard...

    We plan on working on the hood next, (to give it the right shape) and we might also do a little more work on the robes...

    That is the best Nihilus mask I have seen! Definitely more work to be done. You kinda have a Scream killer look.

    Check out the 501st Flagship Eclipse detachment. Lots of Nihilus info and Starkiller too: Flagship Eclipse

    Wow, looks amazing, especially the mask! If you don't mind me asking, how much was the mask from mywickedarmor? I've been looking at their stuff, but I'm afraid to even consider buying something from that site because of my price restrictions, lol.

    We paid 90 dollars for the mask itself, and paid twenty bucks for the black undermask. (So $110 total)
