DIY Inspiration: Death Star Gown and Star Destroyer handbag by Death Star Girl at the 501st Badlands. Top Photo: 501st Badlands Twitter here. All Other Photos and description of gown: 501st Legion here (go to the link for more info on this cotume). First seen at fashionablygeek here. From the forum:
It’s made in 2 layers….there’s an inner hoop skirt that has 5 rows of ruffle and 5 hoops—which are made from 3/4 steel strapping….making that skirt weigh about 11 lbs. and when resting it is about 80 inches wide.
The outer layer of gray is actually double layered….it has about 900 foam tiles on it, 250 LED light, 12ft of EL wire…and I really couldn’t guess how much it weighs…but let me tell you this…it takes 9 “D” batteries to power the lights..
