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.

Is it true that women like Darth Talon more than men do

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

Well there's something a little awkward about asking a complete stranger to do sexy poses with you.

I certainly wouldn't mind being a little red in the face ;P.

Joking aside, those are some fantastic costumes and makeup!

Blue looks better than red; but it might be because the red is reflective. Doesn't seem quite right.

A nice picture reguardless.

Hmmm, I'll have to check up on different paint for the lekku perhaps... but thanks!

If you look at red's cheeks, you'll also see it almost has a pascel (?) appearance to it; looking like it was smeared on a painting, sorta thing. Rather than blue's even and smooth-colouring. It could be red doesn't work well with that paint type; but yeah, I hope you find something as an alternative. ^_^
