#swtor #shaevizla costume again. At last we shall have revenge, at last we shall reveal ourselves.. er.. yeah. Having now played a BH in the Beta test and have my own toon (Emdibi on The Harbinger- I got carried away with my SI so my BH is still barely at 5).

Emdibi is me πŸ˜‰ Aside from the tan… might have to play her dark side to get my dark circles and pasty complexion…

Will have to snaffle some screen caps of my girls. Eyris is now baby pink with naboo inspired make up and a definite case of darksideitis.

Tykhi is as close to SI Togrutan as I can get.

Neimhaille is a pale blue Twi JK

Adorable Juliet as Amidala and myself as the jolly red giant πŸ˜‰

Only pruchased parts were the boots and I altered the top (cut shoulders and overdyed)

Still have so much I want to fix of course. This set of montral and lekku will eventually be another Togruta and my next set will be my permanent ones πŸ™‚


β€˜Star Wars Day’ at Sylvia Park shopping mall, Auckland, New Zealand.

yay! Great day πŸ™‚ Though by the tme of the group photo I was feeling the effects of wearing somehting like 14m of fabric, 3kg of foam and latex and bodypaint and contact lenses…

I had a moment of panic in the loos. I had my tiny wee bottle from Reel Creations of developer but couldn’t find my spray bottle of IA. Turns out though you can paint a face and chest with about 10ml of developer, pretty darned cost effective πŸ™‚

Other improvements from SCCP:

Leather panel! I only managed to get the dyes on Friday afternoon and got it all painted that evening as well as polished. The polish covers a multitude of sins. the dye seeps and soaks at different rates on the skin and in the cuts. So yeah.

Brown shading on all the white. The lekku got a dusting with an airbrush (I will be removing and replacing with a duller brown) to shade and knock back the white. If anyone doubts there is that much brown I point to the test check GL approved πŸ˜‰ One side used brown and black the other just black- she looked very sithy πŸ˜‰

I did the same to shade around my eyes. A lovely dark maroon and a touch of black. I will avoid my eye area with the paint next time and use water and shadow then a spray of liquiset. The paint holds powder well when airbrushed but is slick when brushed/sponged.

The bald cap is glued to just above my eyebrows, this means there is little risk of the headpiece pulling the bald cap off. It does mean I need to pin the bald cap to a bun to keep the weight of the headpiece pushing forward to create a wrinkle. It did a little but that is because you can’t glue the cap to hair. Although I am thinking of a way to use hair gel for that.

Scarf. A nifty fabric tea dyed and lined with cotton. I am going to deline it and use something with more body.

Better socks in my boots! I felt like I was going to fall over at SCCP as the boots are a little big in place. Cheap tube socks FTW!

Non-improvements: I can’t find my necklace!

I love trading cards and sketch cards and these are particularly beautiful πŸ™‚ And I am not biased πŸ˜‰

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.

#shaevzla at the info booth. Yeah, probably never a good idea to let me make and carry prop guns.

Darth Tykhi πŸ™‚ I missed this one. I love it! And yes that is a heavy headpiece, why do you ask?

Actually it balances well it’s just due to the nature of the lekku hanging from the lower parts of the neck it is much harder to move the head than with other aliens πŸ™‚

A new #swtor comic? Just two geeky chicks with weapons.
