Darth Maul - Star Wars Episode 1 - The Phantom Menace





My very first costume, hacked together with bits and pieces from a drama-bin type place, and a latex mask bought from Forbidden Planet.

Under the cloak was a mess but from the front it looked awesome, I wish I had more photos of it before the pieces had to be taken apart and given back ;)

I made this for my 6th form leavers ball, but since I wore this before the movie even came out - only die hard fans got it.

The lightsaber is a £3 toy from Toys'R'Us which was a multi-coloured (literally something like red-green-blue-orange-purple-grey) extending.. double-ended stick thing. Perfect! Just had to experiment with painting it to look like Maul's lightsaber and it 'properly' slotted down into just the hilt and could fling the two blades out given a bit of a spin with the button pressed.

I was never that young. Lies! Oh many people did XD we had actual battles with those plastic things. There's probably still bits of them in a friend's garden/jungle somewhere. And then the movie came out and we went "Hm. Well, the lightsabers are still awesome.."
