Happy Halloween Everyone.
I skipped Halloween last year by wearing a cheesy Death Eater Skull I made and this year I won't be that cheesy otherwise I shouldn't be on this Costume and Prop Forum.
Since my Predator costume is no where near ready I've decided to become Darth Nihilus. My first very involved Star Wars costume!
My homemade mask will be similar to the Character but with a twist: I've added Predator-ish aesthetics such as skulls and spine instead of the usual Star War-ish decorations of girly jewels.
After all I am becoming a Sith Lord who is a Wraith like spirit whose essence is kept alive thru the mask. Oh did I mention he also sucks the Life Force from those he defeats?
Initially the test sculpt on a plaster cast with some paint and red markers just to see if it would work:
I liked it and think it can work so here we go:
The finished product:
After a week of shopping online and buying a bunch of **** I can't make I've gathered all the parts of this costume
I also wore a black stocking under the mask instead of painting my face black to give it that ghoulish effect
I'm 90% percent there, I will modify the black bathrobe cutting off the sleeves and so on. I know its not %100 percent accurate like the SW games and whut not and as I am on a tight budget (& unemployed this is the best I can manage. I made my own Lightsaber Belt clip out of PVC tubing material and the Belt and Sith Cloak is authentic and its already cost me $200 on this costume.
After everything arrives I will do a test fit and more pictures stay tuned!
