Star Wars Rebels gained a new villain in season two. The Seventh Sister was introduced as one of the Inquisitors; the intimidating force works for Darth Vader and hunts down Jedi and Force users. She wears a black costume accented with armor pieces and a distinctive helmet. Like all Inquisitors, she carries a red lightsaber. Myratheon Cosplay recently completed a costume depicting the villain; she’s submitting it for acceptance into the 501st Legion. She made the helmet from resin, while the armor pieces were 3D printed. She made the lightsaber as well. She says:
The hilt is a regular plain saber made by KR sabers, then a friend and I 3D modeled the handle to slide right over it! It was coated in filler putty and sanded so it’s really strong!
Keep up with Myratheon’s cosplay work at Facebook. You can also purchase cosplay props and supplies from her at Etsy.
