Bren Lin, Jedi Knight by Verdaera Bren Lin, Jedi Knight by Verdaera
**Note: THIS IS NOT COSPLAY. This is a Science Fiction costume.**

This is my previously posted Jedi costume, now with Zabrak Horns and Facial Tattoos! The horns I had custom ordered from Aradani Studios and painted myself. The facial tattoo ink is from Reel Creations. Make-up isn't my specialty so I did the best I could in applying both. I also did the lightsaber blade in photoshop (still practicing with that)

This is a really great Zabrak! My sister dressed up using these horns last weekend at Connooga and we did the exact same thing to create the tribal lines on her face! The fabrics look really nice and the belt is awesome. Did you make the belt yourself?

I would love to see some action photos in this costume. The costume is great, but having some outdoor shots with Jedi poses would really add to the impact of the costume.

Also with the Old Republic out, I really like seeing some small intricate details in Jedi costumes. Maybe a robe with techno stripes or a piece or two of armor could really make this costume yours.
What do you think?

I definitely agree with *WannabeSpiderMan that your attention to the fabric details was lovely. The clothing just looks great, very authentic. Is that a linen? Outstanding.

I think you also did a great job on the horns and rite of passage tattoos. The only suggestion I could offer is that you might consider applying a makeup foundation in a slightly different color since their skin tone can vary quite a lot from ours. It wouldn't be too hard to do something subtle (peachy white, perhaps, as that is one of their color variations) and since you'd be applying it all over it wouldn't be too hard, just time-consuming. If you didn't want to hassle with your hands and other exposed areas, you could always wear gloves or gauntlets.

You could also alter your hair color slightly, although I think just a slight change to the skin tone would be enough. I use Ben Nye's water soluble hair dyes and then brush them in with an old toothbrush. It works great.

And also - I thought your Photoshop work on the lightsaber was GREAT! I wouldn't have known if you hadn't told me. Great job.

Overall - really, really good. I look forward to seeing more of your costumes.

Gonna have to get me some of those horns. Zabraks are my favorite SW species.

Turned out really well, I love the belt.
