Shae Vizla 02 by ~static-sidhe

Oh hey, it’s me πŸ˜‰ Photo by Sylvie and I hope she managed to get some SWTOR game on during the last beat weekend πŸ™‚ I did manage to get to to my second planet and even the proper double blasters ability and Death from Above ability which was fun.

So yes I made the costume because Shae is such a mysterious and ridiculously gorgeous creation but I did play the game and I am indeed going fully BH for launch πŸ˜‰ As well as have a Jedi Knight or Consular, I haven’t decided which. But I will get my alien groove on for at least one class.

Not all the stripes are mine! Now this really makes me want to try for a very stripey pattern next time… I want a real jungle type shoot where the markings really make so much sense πŸ™‚

I always thought Shaak Ti reminded me of a kind of predatory herbivore πŸ˜‰ The red is very clearly a natural colouration for “Beware, danger” while her stripes allow blending into long grasses but the horns remind me of antelope.

Photo by Sylvie, Wellington Botanic Gardens πŸ™‚

The tentacles.. well okay then I think of an octopus, but mainly because on our own planet they tend to belong in the sea. And they are dextrous.

Prehensile tails then? Tiger tails.

I have mentioned the moth butt in my livejournal. The rear lekku in shape is very much that of a butterfly or moth. It’s one of the reasons I really love her over the other aliens in the saga, there are so many visual references.

Another great one πŸ™‚ This time showing more of the tunic.

I need to dye my hair that colour again…

And another fave πŸ™‚ By Sylvie again πŸ™‚

Bodysuit and cowl all made with 4 way pvc from MJ Trends. Super fabric, takes getting used to. I have a Mara Jade and a Witchblade set of bodysuits I made from it too.

Another amazing photo by Sylvie, Almost a derp one, a split second later I think it would have.

A great illustration of how impractical the choice of weapons was. My mask needed adjusting (I have plans for a head cast one day far in the future to do this properly) and the claws kept poking me in the eye. Yay for styrene- claws are individually made from thimbles and plastic screws and scraps pf platic to be con safe.

I have very few favourite photos of me in costume, but most of them have been by Sylvie.

The costume itself is all fibreglass and plain epoxy resin. I gave myself an allergy making this which got worse in making my Samara (Mass Effect 2) armour and now working on Shae Vizla.

I also essentially made two full sets of the bikini- one petite and one average sized. Ahh the learning stages of a new skill set.

This was taken with Sylvie’s zholga which she was very lucky to have Β not gone missing as I covet one so.
