Making an Aayla SEcura outfit for my daughter to wear to Cons and Halloween this year.
Started early, because I wasn't sure what I was getting myself in for.
Ordered latex lekku from Twi'lek Paradise out of Spain (find them on facebook).
Made the leather hat/headress and the belt greeblies from upolstery vinyl (same stuff as the 'DIY boots' thread).
Also made the one-sleeved leather halter top (not shown), to go over the brown one-armed shirt (shown).
And I got her some leather jedi boots with straps at the ankles (just retail boots 'as is' no modifications needed).
CAn't do the full reveal until she wears it out in public to the local Con in september,
but here are some teaser shots, to show what I've got so far:
blue latex lekku
leather bandana with ear flaps
cut holes in ear flaps to insert the ear cones
2 center straps over the head from front to back
criss-cross straps on each tentacle
here is the finished head dress
leather skirt-greeblie on front and rear of jedi belt
blue shirt replaces body paint. will paint her face and neck.
that's about as far as I've gotten. still have to figure out the animal print on the sleeves; experiment with spirit gum and blue face paints; etc
(most likely will use blue powder "eye shadow" across the entire face -- like the kind reminiscent of Marylin Monroe -- my sister-in-law used shimmering blue eye shadow as body paint for her "avatar" costume and it was fantastic).
