Intro Alright, I am finally kicking off this build. I know its going to be a long road ahead but I am prepared and ready for it. In the next six months I aim to complete this build and will also be going to the gym to reduce my size to be a more presentable and menacing sith. It is my intention to use this WIP thread as both a blog to update on the costume build as well as an accountability area for my weight/body fat loss.
Current Status and Measurable Goals To kick it all off, I just acquired a 1:6 scale Sideshow collectables Darth Malgus figure that I will use both as motivation as well as a resource to look to for the various portions of the costume to make sure I am building it as accurately as possible. I have also, through my research, found the boots and gloves I will need and have also decided on the Saberforge Juggernaut Lightsaber priced at $420. The lightsaber is visually close to the saber used by Malgus, but I also chose Saberforge for the various sound fonts and vibration effects they place into the hilt itself.
As to the armor, I am currently in contact with WickedArmor, which are among the only vendors that produce the needed armor and cloak for this build. They quoted me $1900 for that portion of the costume as they will size the costume to fit my body better which leads me to my next item.
My goal at this point is to get down to a 38" waist with similar body fat loss everywhere else by late January to mid February so I can then comfortably order the custom fit pieces of armor. I will be going to the Lehi Recreation center 5 days a week, switching between cardio and weights as I can and also cutting back on sugar as much as possible.
So there it is! I will continue to post, at least once per week if I can to report on my progress and the build itself. Here it goes!
