Everything you need for your Twi’lek cosplay is right here.

Cosplaying a Twi’lek is one of the most rewarding and fun experiences I have ever had! And when I moved into prop making full time, I knew first thing I wanted to do was offer everyone the chance to enjoy it as well.

Why buy my lekku?

They’re easily painted.

If you ever get bored of the color you chose, you can easily repaint them for a completely new look!

Customize your cosplay lekku

Choose your material

You can order them in flexible latex, for that standard, easy-to-wear style. Or, if you have latex allergies, get the new latex-free lekku at no extra cost!

If you have a severe allergy, please message me in advance so I can take extra precautions to prevent any trace of latex on your headpiece.

Accessorize

These lekku are also easy to glue things onto!You can easily add all kinds of accessories and adornments to them – jewelry, rhinestones, chains, leather straps, a head wrap… the sky is the limit!

So many ways to paint

You can get them unpainted, if you want to paint them yourself! Just use flexible acrylics such as Liquitex or use the same bodypaint you use on your skin!

You can also order them pre-painted from me as well, and I’ll do all the hard work for you!

Add tattoos and markings

I can also add just about any tattoos or markings to your lekku, such as Darth Talon’s trademark tattoos, Hera’s tattoos, spots, stripes, blends, you name it! I have a handful of default options available, or you can choose “custom” and we can figure out the specifics!

Helpful tutorials for Twi’lek cosplayers!

There’s more to cosplaying a Twi’lek than just wearing head tails, of course. Which is why I have a number of handy guides available on all kinds of Twi’lek topics! Learn how to handle bodypaint, or what to do about a costume that really looks like it came right out of the Star Wars universe! I have new tutorials coming in all the time, so check back for more, later!

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the cosplay lekku made out of?

The lekku themselves are cast out of high-grade latex (or, for those who choose it, a synthetic, latex-free rubber). This gives them a distinct advantage over lekku made from silicone. Latex is much easier to paint (any bodypaint or flexible acrylic will work just fine) and much easier to glue things to. Latex lekku also grip to your forehead better, so it’s less likely to slide around while you’re wearing it at a convention.

How do you make the lekku?

First, I started with a clay sculpture of the lekku. Then, using materials like plasters and resins, I made a mold of that sculpture.After cleaning the clay out of the mold, I can pour my casting latex into the mold to form the ‘skin’ of the lekku. Once the latex dries, I fill them with foam to make sure they keep their shape!

They’re very expensive! Can you teach me how to make my own?

Custom made props like this can be expensive to purchase, sometimes! Part of that is because I spend several hours making each one, especially if I am painting it for you. These don’t come out of a factory – they are all hand crafted one at a time by me personally.

I wouldn’t necessarily recommend making them yourself, though – it took me years of practice and thousands of dollars in materials before I mastered how to make cosplay lekku of my own. Even just your first attempt can cost $500 USD or more, for all the starting materials you need.

You could try your hand at making them out of fabric, though. In my experience, they never look quite as real, and often times you’ll wind up spending just as much money as you would have from buying them pre-made. But, if you’d like to try, there are many great guides out there from Twi’lek cosplayers who are much more talented with fabric than I am! Give it a shot!

Are your lekku as flexible as silicone lekku?

Absolutely! The thing that makes lekku flexible isn’t whether it’s latex or silicone – it’s what they’re stuffed with. If you fill your lekku with stiff foam, or pillow stuffing? They’ll never quite bend right, always creasing at odd angles. So I spent years seeking out the perfect thing to fill them with… and I found it. Now, my lekku are super flexible and can be pulled over the shoulder without hurting or looking awkward in photos.

Are these approvable with the 501st or Rebel Legion?

They sure are! I’ve double and triple checked the CRLs for all the major Star Wars Costuming Clubs (501st Legion, Rebel Legion, Mandalorian Mercs, Dark Empire). These lekku are specifically designed to pass the approval test for all of them. In fact, several Star Wars cosplayers have already been approved using my props! Getting approved with the clubs is a challenging goal, well worth pursuing, and I always want my props to be up to the test.

Do you do other aliens, too?

I do a whole range of aliens for Star Wars cosplayers! Whether you’re looking for Zabrak Horns, Togruta Montrals, Nautolan Headpieces, Cyborg Eye Pieces, or maybe even something totally off the wall, I have it all. Check out my Prop Shop and see all the other things I have available!
