My husband has been helping me put together my Aayla Secura costume to join the Legion (he's helping write). We have our lekku from Twi'lek Pam, we airbrushed today using Reel Creations body ink. We mixed a large batch so I'll be painted the matching color. I have the pants (leggings) and boots along with my lightsaber (with blue blade). We ordered the leather head piece, lekku straps, vest, shirt and belt and they should be coming together in the next week or so.

Here are a few pictures of my progress so far, let me know what you think.

[from my husband- I'm still learning all the parts]

That is looking great. I love Pam's Lekku. Can't wait to see the rest come together. Smile

I have a few more pieces for my Aayla to show. I have the headpiece and belt. Still waiting for my shirt and vest.

Added the straps to the lekku and put the headpiece together:


Got the belt with flaps:

Finally got all the pieces together and painted up for the Charlotte Comicon (with my husband Darth Vader). This was my husband's first time painting me so we know it can be better next time. We learned that airbrushing the paint in a hotel room will set off the smoke alarm. It made for a interesting first try.

I wasn't completely happy with the makeup but it was the first attempt so we learned what not to do next time.

Here's the finished costume:

We have a few pics without the body paint to show the detail to the costume. The lighting at the hotel wasn't great so we're going to take better pictures. I also know I can improve on the airbrushing, as Amy said we had a fun experience with the hotel smoke alarm that kind of threw us off durng the painting process. The next time will be much improved. Oh BTW I'm Amy's husband in case I forgot to mention, I'm helping her put this together and join the RL.

Thoughts, input welcome.

Costume pics (no body paint):

Congrats Amy... the Knights of the Jedi Order is up above in the Jedi heading... just post in there that you have been approved as Aalaya and you will be notified that you have been added to the roster. Its just a way to keep up with all the Jedi we have in the Rebel Legion.
