You Don’t Want to Mess With Darth Talon

darth talon

Darth Talon may be the Sith with the least amount of clothing in the Star Wars Expanded Universe, but it doesn’t make her any less deadly. The Twi’lek appears in the Star Wars: Legacy comics and her design was based on a female Pict warrior. Cosplayer Mu-An tackled the costume for a convention and combined her talents with outside resources. It’s completely okay to go experts when necessary.

She had Twi’lek Paradise make the lekku (the head-tails) and worked with Yoru Kamiko to apply the body paint and tattoos. She just couldn’t reach everywhere by herself. Application of the cosmetics took 4-5 hours! As for the rest of the ensemble, Mu-An used stainless steel for the armor pieces and leather for Darth Talon’s top, gloves, belt, and boots. She fashioned the lightsaber hilt from craft clay. The finished costume is striking.
