Allure: the quality of being powerfully and mysteriously attractive or fascinating.
Hello Everybody, I promised myself I would as a sort of New Years’ resolution try to explore more around the Internet and read a bit more. I decided to check out YouTube for new saber videos when I stumbled across an “Unboxing Video” from a young lady named Allure Cosplay. Allure had purchased a saber but waited a year before making her video about it (view it HERE). Then around two weeks ago an update video appeared giving a review. I checked out the videos and discovered that Allure was also a Cosplayer (though at the time I didn’t realise how accomplished or popular she is!) As I was trying to expand my horizons and inspirations I went and looked at her YouTube channel and found that Allure has an amazing Darth Talon costume.
I posted a few comments and got to “chat” with Allure and she in turn checked out FTSabersite. Well I just had to create a saber design for her Darth Talon outfit. And here it is….TALON‘S ALLURE….
Hopefully this saber captures the same type of Allure that Allure herself possesses. The saber comes in a Transparent Red powder coat to enable me to recreate the “Sith Tattoo” effect that Darth Talon bears. The emitter has a Sith red blade and three aggressive claws and windows. Darth Talon is one of Darth Krayt‘s Hands (Sith apprentice) and assassin so her hilt had to look mean! The switch section has ergonomic ribs to provide a great gripping position. The pommel also has a recess for a second hand position when holding the hilt double handed. With all of my Sith saber designs, to represent their arrogance and lust for power and possesions I also added a couple of gold bands on the handgrip for some “Sith Bling”. They could also represent Talon’s yellow eyes!
Allure Cosplay also has a Facebook page, Allure Cosplay Facebook, as well as her Allure Cosplay on YouTube channel and when I explored her pages I discovered fantastic photos of her in numerous costumes such as Garona from Warcraft, Gamora from GOTG and Allure is now working on an Overwatch costume based on Mechaqueen Pharah. Allure is so accomplished she even published her own cosplay calendar!
And speaking of calendars, you of course require photographs to put in one and I have to give a big thank you to Mr Lainez of 7SPhotography for allowing me to use the above image of Allure posing as Darth Talon. Thank you sir, you are a gentleman. And for my viewers and followers you can discover more of Mr Lainez’s fabulous cosplay based photos on his Facebook page which can be accessed via the link below:
So please go and check out all of these pages, the talent displayed on them is phenomenal. I hope Allure Cosplay approves of this design and I will continue to watch her progress with the Mechaqueen Pharah costume.
And if you were wondering just how great Allure’s Darth Talon costume is, here is a picture from the Dark Horse Comic of Darth Talon:
I am approaching that dreaded time where I have to end the post, but first I want to give one final big thank you to Allure Cosplay and Mr Lainez and I hope we can keep in touch. I also need to say thank you to my viewers and followers for joining me again in 2018, I think it has been a good start and I have TWO more “SuperHero” hilts coming up, so please call back to see those….Till next time!
