I just finished my Darth Nihilus costume today.. gotta get some pics to show off.
I'll screencap costumes for you in KOTOR II.
Hmmm, yes, sewing with stretch fabric can be annoying - especially if you're sewing together two different fabrics. I found that hand basting ahead of time helps a lot, though it does add a lot of time.
Another tip I've been given is to use the zig-zag stitch. It's what the person who made the unitard for my Mara Jade costume used, and it seems to hold up pretty well. It's also a kwik-sew pattern, too, so I have faith that the one you picked out will work pretty well.
Oh, for the time to actually work on this...

AWESOME! Thanks for doing that!
I made the jedi robes..... i like this version of jedi robes cause it has a tail in the back it scoops down.... and i like how it doesnt have tabbards. Ive had it finished for quite awhile aexcept i dont have shoulder armor. I think ill wear this costume at C3. if anyone has suggestions on what to use for shoulder armor it would help
[link=http://skywookiee.fateback.com/KOTOR.html]I've add3ed a few more.[/link] Verpine Fiber and Zal Alloy Meshes, Heavy Flex Armour, Krath Holy Battlesuit, Atton's and Mira's suits.
Anyone have some good pictures off Darth Malaks lightsaber? I found this: http://www.thelightsaber.com/WorkFolder/SmallSFW/XSM1.jpg
But i would like more pictures and other info..
Here's a pic of my Darth Nihilus costume.
Xanthe, if it's not too much trouble, could you post pictures of your KOTOR Jedi robes? I've been wondering for some time if anyone had managed to make that tunic yet.
Also, how difficult was it to make the tunic?
Any help here would be appreciated, as I've decided on a KOTOR-era Jedi costume as my next costume project.
does anyone have any pics of the female sith from KOTOR2?
Hmm dont think i got that far yet.. the only pics i have screenshotted are of the handmadiens in white and the Jedi Atris.
I was only able to complete about half of my Bastila costume in time for C3 - I'm still missing the shoulder pieces, gauntlets, a better collar, and some pieces on the back and belt - but [link=http://home.comcast.net/~taeriel/Bastila.htm]here[/link] is the work in progress.
The suede worked out fairly well, and I'm glad I went with it over vinyl. The stuff frays like crazy though; I had to do a close-stitched overlock stitch on all edges. Given that the reference pictures seem to show some sort of border around the edges of the pieces, this actually worked out very well for visual effect - even if it was a bit of a pain to edge it all.
You mean Visas? As a matter of fact, yes. I think she just got bumped up on my list of costumes, since I did pretty much all of my research one night while I was taking a break from my CS homework.
[link=http://spacefemmites.com/users/downwithhydrogen/pictures/visas_screen1.jpg]Here[/link] she is without the lightsaber, and [link=http://spacefemmites.com/users/downwithhydrogen/pictures/visas_screen2.jpg]here[/link] she is with the saber on. And [link=http://spacefemmites.com/users/downwithhydrogen/pictures/visas_screen3.jpg]this [/link] is with the saber I had her on for most of the game. I also have a scan of my notebook page of doodles and general thoughts on construction, if you're interested.
any help would be good... I am putting her on my list of possible costumes.
Visas is also a costume i would love to do.
I did a Bastila for C3. I have never made a costume before this one, so it could have been better. But I was working with extremely limited knowledge. Here's a decent picture of the frontish with a Visas I found wandering around. http://community.webshots.com/photo/331822175/331822629jsPMxU#
I also had to improvise with the "sword belt" because my lightsaber didn't have a covertec clip or anything. It's homemade by my boyfriend so I wrapped hair ties around the end to hang it from the belt.
This pics not bad either. http://community.webshots.com/photo/331903444/331904079TZSRhN
Sorry, I never really posed to show off the costume for designers. Anywho, I also added the little baggy to carry money and such so that's not acurate to the costume.
heck I think it looks really good...
Here are some pics of SITH__CHICK and darth_hair of the RMFF at C3. They had the best Visas and Darth Nihilus costumes I've seen.
Well, I was the Bastila #3 at Celebration! But my costume wasn't finished either. It was all I could do in a week and a half.
The unitard was still too big (after taking the seams 3 times!) and as the weekend advanced, it was getting looser.
I have faux leather in a slightly different color to add the pieces that overlap and I will also double the descending pieces so you can't see the wrong side of the faux leather anymore. And my saber actually lights up, but I can't find any good pics of it because they were taken with flash!
And I want to do the belt and some pouches to carry stuff next time! Possibly spats to go over my boots...
No one's costume is ever trully finished, I think. I know mine isn't. But all of those are excellent starts for Bastilla. I really like the suede.
Marianne, we ran into each other at the Celebration@ Celebration party. Good job, and I especially liked the lightsaber.
Well, here's my scan of doodles and general thoughts on the costume. Brought to you by a very bored student in a dull art history lecture.
I'll screencap her for you! Anything else you'd like?

Yes, I remember you. Thanks! Your costume was great. Amazingly detailed!
