Talon and Aayla by TheChainmailChick Talon and Aayla by TheChainmailChick
Inspired by :iconwil-woods: and his Twilight Twileks! [link]

Photo by Matt Zeher
Lekku are made by Pam
Costume is made by me
Airbrush body paint done by my sister and friends

for a full description of how the costume was made, check my blog post out: [link]

I wanted to have a go at recreating Wil's picture...but ran into two problems! 1, we were both covered in bodypaint and therefore extremely hesitant to touch anyone or anything (a silly worry, as it turns out. alcohol based paint won't come off for anything) and 2....well there's something a little awkward about asking a complete stranger to do sexyposes with you. Hahaha.

Can you please point me in the direction of someone who can make lekku? My friend is going as Darth Talon for Celebration VI and she's really curious about this Pam. Everyone seems to have Pam credited for their Lekku. If you could tell me how to get in contact with them, that would be amazing! Thanks!

If you get them completely unfinished (no painting/dremmeling/smoothing/etc) they're not *too* bad... I'm trying to find another way of making 'em, though, because as many twilek costumes as I wanna do...that would really add up o_0
