    Darth Revan: Cardboard to Sith Lord

    Well... I saw this fantastic Revan costume in one of the 501st group photos from this past ComiCon. She looked so fantastic, I had to make one as well.

    Here's how it looked a couple weeks back and now it's got a visor and the greeblies at the bottom of the face "tusks". I'm about ready to cast it in silicon and produce a nice resin version and likely cold-cast one in aluminum. I started the whole thing from scratch with a cardboard frame, coating it with bondo, sanding and shaping. After some polish and paint.. it's the most inexpensive blank I've ever put together. It's strange how much it looks like a Mando face design, but I drew directly from screencaptures and took a lot of tips from the woman who's work so inspired me.



    and here's my progress gallery...

    I'll post the finished item when it's all done.

    Aww thanks. I'd have smoe more finished photos but.. I took it to show some people and while I wasn't looking, somebody unkindly dropped it and cause a big fat crack and a dent in the back edge. Whoever it was did'nt even bother letting me know so I did'nt know who to Force Choke... I had to fix it and as we speak the paint is still 'curing'.

    Hey there!! Great job on the mask. I myself tried to make it, but found it was impossible because the game had 3 different masks that were used, haha.. Also the texture on the 3D masks didn't line up, and the way it was built couldn't physically work in reality.

    You did a good job on the mask!! It's one of the more accurate Revan masks I've ever seen. The visor area does appear to be a little too thick, and I like the way you curved up the brow.

    Would you be intereseted in selling me a copy of the mask? I sure would love to become SL-1287. I all ready mapped out the other parts that are ready to be laser cut and put together, but the mask is a part that I am missing!!

    Great job once again!

    Andy

    Ahh you mean the eye-slot is larger than the screen-cap? Yes well, I prefer to be able to see my surroundings a bit more than I would normally. It also has great left and right vision.

    For better hallway vision!!

    Well, right, just click the image of the mask, the mask/helmet sub-folder. the link takes you to the full costume section and I haven't posted those photos yet. The above link is to my photo album.

    This thread is UNDEAD....

    okay, so the reason for bringing this up is that I recently had a hard-drive die (recent for me means last fall) and I lost a lot of photos. One of those photo collections is the progress of my Revan costume.

    I think I could get some basic images but I'd have to get in touch with Thomas Spanos. I believe he would have images somewhere. All i have currently are tiny sized images I found of mine on the web.

    Also if anyone saved them, that would be great.

    Seems like the photo site I used to house the progress went under.
