I helped with as much research as possible to make the costume as accurate as possible. It took about three months to finally put it all together.
Here’s the build.
I built the mask. I used a paintball mask and wired in two high intencity 4500mcd LEDs wired to a switched 9v battery box. I incased them into two gumball cases and sealed them in tight. I then wired in a fan in the “mouth” area. A Venom 7.2v 1200mAh 6-Cell NiMH Battery (p/n: VEN-1511) with a long enough wire to hide the battery inside the cloak. The battery powers a Delta AFB0505HB 50x50x15mm 14.13CFM fan which pulls air in from the front of the mouth.
The first test fit.
The first troop. What’s great about this mask, is in a high lit room the eyes glow VERY bright. This is perfect for events like Star Wars Weekends being the crowd will be able to see her glowing eyes very well.
