I think twe'leks are really cool.
I would love to do a costume of one, maybe in my x-wing..I'd have to shave...
I dont think I've ever seen a guy in a twe'lek costume...
besides bib fortuna.
has any GUYs tried to do this? would we look like a girl?

I don't know of any personally, but I think if you watch how you structure your lekku you should be fine as there are some very definite differences between male and female Twi'lek lekku/heads. And it's canon in the flightsuit: Both Tal Dira and Nawara Ven flew with the Rogues :-D

I don't think anyone's done a Bib Fortuna costume yet.

There are some really good Bib Fortuna costumes out there, both in the works and completed. You can see a great build thread about one of them here:

http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/forums/showthread.php?t=28174


Scott and I are working on a male headpiece for his Shado Vao costume, and he's planning to wear it with his X-Wing costume as well. This is an older photo of the sculpt when it was still in the roughing-in phase, but it gives the general idea.

I definetly want to do a twi'lek one day (when my list whittles down a little, hehe)... I'm wondering what one of these run, I'm trying to decide which is more cost effective, buying one vs. making the whole mold system.

I can't wait to see some male twi'leks!

A male twi'lek's head is different than a female's.
It has more bumps on the forehead and the lekku are falling down behind the ears with a more prominent bump between the lekku on the back of the head.
On the females the lekku begin further back and the back head bump is higher up and less pointy.

I would speculate, though, that both adult males and females would have the forehead bumps if they had let them develop naturally, but that females supress their growth by wearing their typical headgear. One female that has bumps on the forehead is Koyi Komad.

Koyi was back in the Pre-Prequel days when Twi'leks are just known through Bib Fortuna and Oola. Nowadays the female Twi'leks are all have this slim and sexy figure with their lekkus just like fleshy braids hanging around. But the most Twi'leks we see there are Lethan or Rutian ones. So, its possible that the "ordinary" flesh-colored ones have this bumps on the forehead. Or the bumps are just a sign of origination, e.g. from the equator region or whatever.

Unfortunately the male lekku molding and casting is temporarilly on hold until after dragon-con. Took a shot at doing the head wraps and stuff in silicon for the Shado Vao costume, but they didn't quite work out, and we're really out of time to back track and go at it a different way. So...they'll be waiting for a couple weeks until we get back and progress can start up again. (Pam posted some more up to date pics of the progress over on http://www.theflagshipeclipse.com)

I am planning on making an X-Wing pilot style helmet to fit over the lekku once everything else is completed :-)

I just started making male lekku out of cloth fabric. I've had two Shado Vao commissions, here's link to pics on photobucket of the first set (at the bottom). First time I ever made male lekku. A headpiece is necessary the way I make them now, I may look into a way to make them wearable without a headpiece if properly motivated. Razz
