Star Wars video games introduced several new characters into the Expanded Universe (now known as Legends), including Darth Revan. The character can be played as a male or female. Cosplayer Mowseler created a femme take on the costume because she admires the character. She appreciates Revan’s dual nature and his journey in the game. Her take on the costume is like the one in Knights of the Old Republic, but Mowseler modified it so the costume is unique.
Her build highlights a helpful cosplay tip. When you’re designing an original take on a familiar costume but still want the character to be recognizable, it’s important to include a few obvious elements. In this case, including Revan’s mask makes a big difference. As someone pointed out, without the mask, the costume could look like a Jedi and Assassin’s Creed mash-up. That’s still awesome but not quite what Mowseler was going for. She explains:
But that is one of the biggest reasons I am including the mask – when Revan was redeemed, and when you get the Star Forge robes, he doesn’t have a mask, but I feel like the mask is the most iconic part of Revan. This way it will help the costume stand apart and be recognizable (I hope.)
