I made this costume for the midnight release party of Revenge of the Sith back in May. But since I  joined craftser last month I've been dying to put something up! I apologize ahead of time for all of you that use dial-up internet, it's a bit graphic heavy.  Grin

For the party I actually airbrushed myself purple! Sadly I don't have pics of that. So I colorized some of them in ACD.These are just some pics my boyfriend took recently for eBay:


Looking shifty:

Believe me, when it's Florida in the summertime,  sheer fabric is a blessing. My comrades in wool Jedi Robes weren't as fortunate.  Wink I was going for that Jabba's Palace look anyhow. Thanks for the great feedback! ^_^

It was really fun to be a Twi'lek! I was boogieing down with some Jedi, imperial officers and storm troopers at the release, It was great ^_^. People kept grabbing my head tails though. lol...

I have a tip if you make them! I put fishing weights in the tips so they would fall nicely. With the weights I could toss em' around when dancing and throw one over my shoulder.

I have more detailed pics of how they look draped strait down and of various parts of the headpiece if anyone wants more shots. I'd be happy to help out with any questions. ^_< I don't bite.
