    My wife and I recently went to the Disney World Haloween Party. I decided that it was the perfect time to test out my Costume making skills, and my Darth Maul makeup.

    Im a Costumer and makeup artist from Waaayyyyyy back, but I had not done it in quite some time.

    I bought a pattern from Simplicity and about 20 yards of fabric and set to work. about a week later I had 2 costumes.

    Now I have researched Darth maul axtensivly since then, and I now realize that for a Darth Maul costume it SUCKS!! But the quality is really good, and as Dark Jedi costumes they are exelent!

    The kids at Disney liked it too :)

    In fact I was sooooo popular with the kids that a Disney Rep told me that I was not allowed to let people take photos of me anymore. She said that my costume was too exact. (My costume was a quality costume, but anyone who knows darth maul knows that it was so far off the mark its kinda funny)

    Then I got a buddy to Photoshop in some blades for me.

    The Makeup worked great, and never faded, smudged, or ran. I was quite pleased with it. The horns I cut out of a Rubies Mask and repainted. I still need to feather the edges better to remove the ridges.

    All in all, I am quite pleased with the results, but It highlighted that I have a CRAPLOAD of work to do, before I have a REAL Maul costume.
