Kylo Ren costume build

Post by tommykar » 17 Apr 2015, 21:45

Hey.

I have decided to build my first costume in celebration of the new star wars movie coming soon.
The character is ofcourse Kylo Ren :D
In that case i need help with some advise to how and who can help me in. I live in Norway so you can type in norwegian, swedish or danish.

The sith will rise again

Hello!
Did you know that at the moment you can't join the Nordic Garrison with that costume? It's not among the approved costumes. There's no reference to compare it with.
But it's your choice and it looks like a cool costume. You might be the first to get it approved but it will take a lot of work.

Similarly to that character, there's Darth Revan for example. We have two Darth Revans in NG but it's just one guy in each country and he'd have to research Kylo Ren himself to give all the advice you need. That's why we have detachments. Flagship Eclipse detachment is full of people who are used to make never-done-before darkside type costumes with thick black robes, custom masks and sabers, and whatever.

If you want to get your costume in time for the new movie, go outside your comfort zone of getting help locally, and discuss over there. Or Dennis can come to your house and build it for you for free.

Now that I have a closer look there's little comparison with the two designs.

Bet someone will have sculpted the mask by Sunday on Flagship!

The tunic sleeves look like piqué fabric. I have long considered using such a fabric for Jedi tunics myself.

So... you think Episode VII belongs to be classified as in the Expanded Universe? ;)

Yeah, at the moment this costume has too few refereces for approval, but immediately after the movie hits the screens, this costume is Canon, as per Legion standards. The Legion GML teams must have a field day getting everything ready for the new costumes from the upcoming movie.

Not to un courage you on your build, you have time in your hands, to make a good costume. Just take your time, ask questions and make sure you ask from the right folks. As soon as the Celebration at Anaheim is closed, the information regarding the new costumes on the upcoming movie will hit like a maelstrom to the forums, here, Legion, Sithlords, EVERYWHERE.

After a few weeks, you will have more than enough reference and information regarding this costume.

So, in other words, DO IT!

If you are able to get you costume up to par with the movie, you could very well be the first to get one in, and be the one pictured in Legion CRLs...

And welcome on board, be sure to take pop corn with you..
