Thank God my best friends at Dim Horizon Studio are also some dedicated gamers, y’all! They totally said “Yes!” when I asked if they might be willing to help me document the Darth Nihilus (Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic) costume I originally built for my son. These are some of my complete favorite Dim Horizon images from our afternoon together at Sloss Furnaces in Birmingham.
Costume Notes: The Nihilus mask was crafted with gauze tape, wire mesh and wall putty. The costuming includes a layers of ladies circle skirt, a black graduation robe and a black bed sheet, all from the thrift store. The lightsaber is a legit Master Replica that is really bad-ass even though it doesn’t look like Nihilus’ particular saber. The sound effects compensate for the discrepancy.
