Aayla is bright turquoise, which I
use Ben Nye Cosmic Blue diluted
with just a bit of white.
I hand-dyed the fabric for my lekku
and my modesty top/tummy panel
and added a hand-stitched belly
button with bangle. The lekku are
lightly dotted with paler blue paint
for a skin-like effect.
For the helmet, lekku wraps, belt
pieces and top, I used matching
pieces of dark brown real leather.
The top I got from a thrift store,
hemmed one sleeve, cropped and
hand-painted per Pam's instructions
on her site. The top and leather top
fasten under the right arm. The
'mud flaps' are made from vinyl and
a crocodile texture handbag that i
cut up for the purpose. The boots
were found on Ebay. The helmet
attaches to my head with a chin
strap and the lekku swing freely.
The bottom 4 inches are filled with
sand for a uniform look and to assist
with movement. The rest is stuffed
