The Jedi must end — and not in a Luke-finally-figures-out-what-balance-means kind of way, but in an Order 66 kind of way. Sometimes it feels good to be bad.
Check out the cosplay and project below that give glory to the dark side of the force!
Instructables user jeanmarcus always chooses an object from a movie for his Halloween costume. In past years he’s been the Flux Capacitor from Back to the Future and the treasure map from The Goonies. For this year’s costume, he chose an AT-AT Walker from Star Wars. He knew it wouldn’t be simple, but he figured it out and made a wearable walker from materials like polystyrene and lots of glue. He started by making the pattern for the flattened structure.

Fan art seems to continually inspire cosplayers, and this anime style gender swapped Darth Vader by DeviantArt user Kracker-5 inspired Emily of The Stylish Geek to make a costume. Her Lady Vader costume features a lot of different textures and fabrics, and Emily made everything from the suit to the armor. She spent about five weeks making the costume and used materials such as 4-way stretch matte PVC fabric, batting, and Worbla. (Read more)
Darth Vader robot (lego buildable figures) controlled by raspberry pi, python and 1 servo. Buit this bad boy with scotch tape and wires hahahaha!
Meet Lady Death Star. Based on the battle station that’s the size of a moon in Star Wars, this costume is probably the most dangerous in the galaxy. It doesn’t fire lasers as far as we know, but the gown does light up! The builder put serious hours in, too! Lady Death Star’s husband told Fashionably Geek that the dress was under construction for over 100 hours. She made the skirt, corset, hat, and Star Destroyer purse (it has sound effects) completely from scratch. (Read more)
Made from Star Wars At-St Model from Bandai.
Reacts to sound and turn its head towards it.
Made with Arduino Nano, a 3dprinted custom part, microphones, micro servo.
This instructable is made to share the modifications required to achieve the sound reaction anche head rotation capabilities. Includes Arduino Coding, 3d STL Files for printing necessary parts, and obiouvsly instructions to make it happen. Intentionally it won’t focus on painting & weathering process, which is a matter of model making, there also are several resources for this i’ll link later on.
Instructables user 1truedrum is a huge fan of Star Wars so he was excited when his 7-year-old son asked to be a Tusken Raider for Halloween this year. He made every piece of the costume from scratch from head to gaffi stick. He used half inch plastazote foam for the helmet and built the helmet from wedges. (Read more)
If you want to be a Sith or Jedi, you don’t have to base your costume on a character in the Star Wars universe. You can create your own take on an existing look or come up with something completely different. Issabel Cosplay designed an original Sith costume loosely inspired by some fan art of Asajj Ventress. She decided to make her Sith a Rattataki, which is similar to a Dathomirian (which is what Ventress is). (Read more)
