Construction Notes from My Mord’Sith Costume

Construction Notes from My Mord’Sith Costume

Well friends I have finally gotten up the courage to make my first how-to video 🙂 I had a few friends who were asking me how I did my hair for my Mord’Sith costume so I thought I’d share my method. Other methods that I had read about required the use of two synthetic braids but this method only requires one. I wore it when I went out dancing and not a hair came out of place! Please feel free to ask questions, ask for more how-to’s or leave constructive comments! I’m aware that the camera view is not always perfect- sorry about that! Dratted learning curve… The patterns for the armor are available from our Night Lily Design shop on Craftsy.com WITHOUT INSTRUCTIONS here: Source: Mord’Sith Style Armor via NightLilyDesign on Craftsy     The gorget neck piece laced up and ready for snapped tabs as closure. Note, this is different from the TV version which has more boot hook quick laces on the side back piece. Those hooks are reported to snag the braid horribly not to mention how tricky it sounds to lace the piece on by myself with the hooks in back… I have chosen to make it look like the whole thing is laced on and have hidden snaps actually holding the piece together at the side front...
