Oh hey, it’s me 😉 Photo by Sylvie and I hope she managed to get some SWTOR game on during the last beat weekend 🙂 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 😉 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 🙂
I always thought Shaak Ti reminded me of a kind of predatory herbivore 😉 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.

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 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.
