Star Wars Twi’lek Lekku/Head Tails How-To

Twi'lek cosplay 1

The Star Wars universe is full of cool-looking aliens that will test any cosplayer’s building mettle. The Twi’leks present a particular challenge with their flowing head tails known as lekku. They’re complicated enough that several costumers and prop makers offer their expertise and make sets of lekku on commission, but there are ways to tackle the build yourself. Cosplayer Scarlett Costuming and Art came up with an original Twil’lek character and as a beginner level latex crafter, she was able to make a convincing looking pair of lavender lekku.

You can see a couple photos of the progress below. Scarlett uses supplies such as modeling clay, wire, liquid latex, wood glue, and paint. The most difficult part seems to be sculpting the actual headpiece and lekku. Scarlett documented the build with a tutorial which you can view in this Facebook album. Happy lekku’ing!
