Leathers: Twisted World
Saber, Armor, Wig and etc: Myself and :iconvisionsofzen:

Celebration 6, 2012

As soon as I saw the HOPE trailer for Star Wars: The Old Republic Video game, I KNEW that I had to do this costume. I dragged out my Star Wars lore, books, and encyclopedia's and began to research. When the game came out I played, played, played.

Love this costume and character. One of the things that was very important was getting the pattern correct in the tunic. Upon closer inspection, one can see that the pattern is very specific, and her costume- leather. So :iconvisionsofzen: and I began searching on how to make it happen.

Though we wanted to make the pattern ourselves, economically we knew that ordering custom tanned leather wouldn't be feasible in the small amounts that we would need.

Friends led us to Twisted World, an amazing company who has been in the Renaissance World under the name of Sons of Sandlar for generations. They had experience in leather patterning, and so we commissioned them to make the tunic and boots.

With the help of Ed W. - we 3D printed the buckles, and Saber parts, and then cast molds of them to make the pieces to go on the costume.

The saber was a plain dual end saber that I bought and modified.

Wig was cut, styled by me :)

The armor pieces were sculpted, molded and created by my loving other half. :)

Jennifer Hale even came back to voice Satele or so I read. Kind of fitting given that Hale voiced Bastila Shan years earlier. As always spot-on look wise. Your other half made exceptional armor.
