Here is my latest Cosplay adventure - A Dark Jedi/Jedi Outfit!

Totally unique, hand made patterns tailored to me, much of it hand sewn with larger seams done on a machine, Belt and Saber and Tabi are the only pieces I didn't make myself.










My "Don't Fuck With Me" Look. Hehe, LOVE how this one turned out. I'm always accused of being cute when I'm mad, so I think this one is my only picture ever that I actually might look intimidating. Hehe










"Rare Smile" My Jedi/Dark Jedi (who I have a vague back story for) is a pretty serious and damaged person, but those few times she does relax, you just might see a small, sad smile...

Cosplay Backstory

Name: Alessia

Race/Gender: Human Woman

Homeworld: Dathomir

Allegiance: Former Dathomiri Night Sister, Former Knighted Jedi Sentinel, Currently a guard for hire to the highest bidder

Appearance: muscular but lean build, intricate thin tattoos like organic tracery along her shoulders and back, Traditional Jedi Attire Gray and Black color scheme, Rugged Black Tabi, deep black hair, handmade leather belt over her Obi, Brilliant Azure Eyes with a thick ring of deep black around the irises

Weapons: Amber lightsaber disguised and tied to the back of her belt, mid-length vibroblade at her right hip, hold out blaster hidden in her obi, belt sports a row of 5 throwing darts dipped in various affecting toxins taken from the Jungles of Dathomir

Fighting style: Similar to Japanese swordsmanship in its various forms, learned some lightsaber forms but has since fallen back into a blend of her native style and the Jedi forms

Force Abilities (L/D side abilities depend on her state of mind – Equanimity: Light Side; Passion/Anger: Dark Side)
Neutral Abilites: Insignificance (not becoming invisible but people basically look right through her as if she’s not there, they see her then instantly forget she was there b/c she emits an aura of insignificance), Basic Force use (push, pull, grip, sense), Affinity with Animals
Light Side Abilities: Healing
Dark Side Abilities: Vitality Siphon (could be energy/heat, life force)

Backstory: During the Old Republic Era, Alessia was a daughter of a primitive warrior clan on Dathomir. She quickly realized her skill with a blade and throwing darts were superior to those of her sisters. After a month long coming-of-age trial deep in the treacherous and deadly jungles alone, she earned an honored place under their clan’s matriarch. Seeing the fire and turmoil within Alessia, the Matriarch knew she wouldn’t be content with clan life and so sent her off with a merchant family that had gained the trust of the clan – to find her destiny among the stars.

Traveling with the Merchant family, she was introduced to an older Jedi Sentinel who quickly discovered her Force Sensitivity. Revealing it to Alessia, he agreed to take her to the Temple on Coruscant to see if the Council would agree to letting her learn the ways of the Jedi. However, the Sentinel had sensed a deep taint of the Dark Side in the young woman – one that had taken years to take root. Unknown to her clan on Dathomir, they had grown strong in the shadow of an old Sith Lord’s Mausoleum, which was hidden in the depths of a bluff near their training grounds – the relics and Force Ghost of the ancient Sith empowering and instilling his will in the jungle warrior clan.

With the encouragement and certainty of the aging Sentinel, the Council reluctantly agreed to allow Alessia’s training. Trained on Coruscant and other Republic worlds, all knowledge of Tython was forbidden to her, even it’s existence – there were other restrictions the Council felt necessary to help guide her on the path of light despite her “obvious” taint. Separate and ostracized by most padawans and their masters, the Sentinel taught the eager and quick learner all he knew with the kindness of a father Alessia had never known. Throughout her training, there were times when her master would scold her harshly – having unwittingly used the Dark Side of the Force, with time she began to recognize it. Knighted against all odds in her mid-twenties, she became a sentinel and struck out on her own – out of both necessity and desire: many of her fellow Jedi still avoided her or despised what she represented: the presence of the Light and Dark sides of the Force in concert.

After many years abroad, finding more and more evidence of Dark Side users, Alessia’s old Master reached out to her. Agreeing to meet back at the Temple on Coruscant, she knew the Sentinel’s time was growing short – they were meeting to say farewell for the last time. Spending a few quiet days together, her mentor, master, and father figure silently became one with the Force during the night of the fourth day. And that morning, amidst her darkly enhanced turmoil and mourning, the Sith sacked Coruscant.

Ascending from the resident level to make sense of the chaos in the Force and echoing halls of the Temple, Alessia couldn’t comprehend the utter destruction of the entrance hall. Moving silently through the less populated areas of the Temple, she came upon a squad of young Sith Acolytes looking to make names for themselves by slaughtering the younglings. With a battle cry of Dathomir, she fell upon them like an enraged Rancor, slipping and slicing through them like a furious Nexu, her rage lessened only when the last of the acolytes laid severed and still amongst their defenseless prey.

Stumbling and numb, Alessia blindly made it out of the ruined temple, smoke and death everywhere. Slipping onto a fleeing cargo vessel, she spiraled through all of the deepest darkest pits of the galaxy. Fighting in gladiatorial combat, working as a hired hand for the scum of Nal Hutta, she eventually found herself on Nar Shaddaa. Working black market runs, bouncing VIP events for the Cartel bosses, and various other protection gigs or kill orders – Alessia lived job to job – only distantly interested in the war between the Jedi and Sith. But her destiny wouldn’t let her hide forever. . .



I'd love to hear what you guys think! :D Enjoy!

Excellent!
I really liked your custom Sith character you posted on the US forum a while back but you pull off the more traditional Jedi-look just as well.

Thanks guys! I love hearing all of your feedback!

I am pretty small.... but what can a girl do? hahaha besides wear heels, but those aren't practical, I save those for the Sith cosplay...... which I'll be taking some photos of this weekend. I just hope the pics turn out as awesome as these did!

For not having any martial arts background, I'm flattered to hear that my poses look natural - it's good that I was able to pull that off with my limited knowledge of swordplay. I hope to continue to learn and practice what I have available to me via youtube.

The color scheme is the second palette of colors that I'm naturally drawn to. My first is definitely the natural palette, browns, rusty reds, drab olives, etc - but I love how this turned out - it really shows the "gray" stance my non-jedi/dark jedi character would have. :)

You know, a true practitioner of martial arts looks "natural" you would never know that they studied anything. My grandfather who taught me Muay Thai (I'm from Thailand) looked like a little old man who could barely water the tomato plants. But his knees and elbows were the fastest I have ever seen. Your stance lends itself to hun gar or ba gua.

That is a great costume! And, I'm always impressed with people who have the skills to design and make their own. I'd love to hear the backstory on your character. There's a story to be told in this pic. Great shot!

This character's backstory is still in flux and vague, but i'll try and write up a short for this picture!

Thank you! And thanks for the inspiration. I'll try and work on it tonight and tomorrow. :)

Aletani, is your costume approved in any of the LFL regulated costuming organizations? I'd be honored if you'd join us at The Dark Alliance with that incredible looking build.

No, I'm not approved by any group, but I have been approached by one other. And unfortunately, I'll have to tell you what I told them: right now I just don't have the time or money to be able to contribute as much as I'd like to for a Charity/Cosplay group. Thank you for the offer, but for the now, I just can't join any group.

Understandable! Costuming groups can take a lot of dedication and need time to do so, so I understand your decisions on that. But hey, if you ever end up with the ability to one day, look us up! It's a stunning attire.

Thanks again for the kind words. Here's the backstory for her, finally had the inspiration to write it up tonight. Enjoy and lmk what you guys thing - does it match the cosplay or no? ;)

Great backstory and a very artistical costume. And a pretty cosplayer as well. There are definitely not enough female cosplayer in the star wars range.

I like your Dark Jedi concept very much and waiting for more from you ^^
May the Force be with You!
