What is a headwrap, headband or bandana?
That piece of fabric, leather or elastic material that twi’leks have placed around the forehead.
Currently only we work real leather. But you can make suggestions.
The Darth Talon is a helmet (not leather) called here head armor.
Can you make this costume?
Send me your suggestion. Not all suggestions come true, if I have time and I’m interested, I’ll send you a budget.
Do you can make togruta headpiece?
I wanted to follow specialized in twi’leks. But people insisted me, wanted me to do, because they like my work. So I had to give in and make Togrutas.
Right now the young Ahsoka is finished and for sale upon request.
Adult Ahsoka from REBELS is available and for sale upon request.
More togrutas in 2016
I just started working with latex and you have a lot of experience, I do not ask your secrets but could you give me any advice?
The latex is like a living creature, does what he wants! The only thing that counts is the experience of the hands that work, work and more work, burn your money on more expensive products, breaking molds, mourn and start again.
Do you mass-produce your costume parts?
I do not have the capability to mass-produce costumes. I have a small workshop/atelier/studio in my parents’ house, not a factory. I can only do a very limited run.
Can I show photos of your costumes and props on my website or on a forum?
Yes, ONLY if you give me credit and place it with a link to my website.
Respect my credits , never say that they are yours
Do you tolerate recasting?
No! I make all of my pieces from scratch. If you recast any of my parts, even with alterations, my acolytes chase you and will make your life a hell (not is a joke). I have many friends in the costuming world that will see it at a convention or on a forum and contact me. It will come back to haunt you. That’s a promise.
Do you have your lekkus special?
A combination of comfort, resistance, are lightweight, beautiful curve between head and tentacle, custom color, proven experience and many satisfied customers with which you can communicate.
Is it made lekku to fit my head?
No. Each lekku style is different and has been tested in certain head sizes.
You will find details of each in Store.
The measure your head is also important when ordering headwraps.
Head measure is approx., can use a lace and a normal rule.
Do you make male lekku?
Twi’lek Paradise lekkus are unisex, it just depends on if you like the style that have or not. You can see some men using them in Portfolio: http://twilekparadise.com/portfolio-item/blue-danube-clan/
I think that lumps are easy to do (if you want them), putting little pillows under the balaclava (as Shao Vao), for this I not put the lumps in the latex lekku shape.
Currently I recommend Daesha and Ardana styles for men.
I have long hair, it will be a problem?
No, you can substitute filling for your hair easily. Best for those with very long hair is to make two buns “Chun Li” style http://twilekparadise.com/wp-content/uploads/chun-li-buns.jpg
How much weigh your lekkus?
They are very lightweight, all weigh below 700 grams (0.7 kg.) in total, depending on the model.
You can view details of each one in the Store
Why sell lekku colored?
It is much easier and more comfortable to adjust the color to a lekku with previously dyed latex. You will have more data in Tutorials.
Do you sell lekku flesh/skin color?
Do you sell lekku unpainted?
Can I put them around my neck?
The long Yes. The shorts will not come to surround it.
Is it obligatory to use prosthetic adhesive?
If you use a headwrap, probably not. To the Darth Talon is essential.
Can I use in the sea or the swimming pool?
Yes. Only ensures that no enter water inside and after wash with a cloth with water to remove chlorine or salt.
Have your lekku texture?
Have some texture. It is a handmade item, sometimes it is softer than others.
Do require care?
Include a note with care and tips in the box of every order.
Are they flexible? Can put around my neck? Will move when I walk or dance?
They are flexible, but latex always tends to the original form which was created so do not force it too long around your neck. Some people achieve the same movement when walking like in the video, but others don’t, It depends on your complexion (everyone is different). They do move when you dance or turn arround.
Could you teach me to do a lekku or do a tutorial?
No, sorry, my current skills are the result of years of failure and frustration, and burning my money.
Maybe someday, in a distant future, write a book with anecdotes, tips and tutorials. Thanks for your understanding
How do you do the lekku? With what material are stuffed?
See the previous question.
Store - Orders
Which methods of payment do you take?
You must pay paypal fees. I will included in the budget
Can I split payment for my order?
Yes, in two payments, a deposit to enter the queue of waiting and the rest before the end.
I can only make a style of lekku every time. And some have higher demand than others.
For example: If 4 people have ordered Ardana style, you will have to wait for it to finish those 4. (this is the ORDER QUEUE, each style have it own queue).
Headwraps have ONE order queue for all styles.
Your order enters in the order queue at the time of payment or first payment.
Lekku need 2-3 weeks to make, depends of free time and weather. If order spots, headwraps, armor or other props time could be greater.
I could take less but I ask more time because I’m tired of seeing propsmakers that say you “your order will start in April”, but is May and you write them and they say: “no, your order maybe will start next month” (maybe?? maybe start??)… this is very frustrating for the customer, who thinks that has a delivery time but it’s not real. For this reason and because the diseases and family problems occur when you least expect, I ask more time in advance and ask for understanding.
Please be foresighted and place your order in advance, you can make two payments.
I’m honest, I’d rather not have a certain client who risk to have disappointed customer. I do not want to disappoint anyone.
I am proud to have delivered on time more of 99% orders over 6 years I’ve been propsmaker.
Delivered even months in advance.
I will fight for this to continue.
