I think I’ve finally reached the point in my cosplay career where I can’t stop and won’t stop making new Mara Jade costumes. I made this latest version of her Emperor’s Hand look for Awesome Con back in June. I had the chance to join some of my fellow members of the 501st for a photoshoot the other week, I wasn’t entirely sure what to wear until a friend suggested that I bring Mara because THE EMPEROR’S HAND AND THE HAND OF JUDGMENT.
We may not have managed to get the precise line up for the Hand of Judgment (we needed a scout trooper) but I was just so tickled that we had 5 stormtroopers present as was my friend Brian who was just as gungho about getting these shots as me.
Made Jade: Bria
Stormtroopers: Brian, Heather, Phil, Chris, and Ken
Mara Jade is that one costume that I will never be satisfied with and that I will always be making a new version of or updating. When I found out that Timothy Zahn was going to be at Awesome Con again this year, it seemed only logical to upgrade. I’m fairly happy with how this turned out and HEY I got a cape!
