Any idea how this should come about? I was thinking of a Hot pink Twi'lek for my Jedi robes. Any suggestions?

The Star Wars costuming groups Rebel Legion and 501st are good places for info, as several members have made lekku by various means.
Here's one tutorial for fabric lekku, which I have used with good results.

And this lady makes and sells latex lekku-email her if you are interested:

I have a pair and they're beautiful.

The fabric lekku are very light and move beautifully, but aren't quite as realistic up close as the latex ones. On the other hand, the latex variety look very lifelike-great for photoshoots and masquerades, but are heavier and don't bounce and move like the fabric ones.

^^ I know several people who do Twi'leks as I am in the 501st Legion. I myself plan on doing a male sith Twi'lek in the near future

Ooo!

Excellent links! I've been wanting a Twi'lek costume for nearly 2 years now, and now I feel less intimidated.

Wow, I'm so happy I found this! One thought of mine (and full support of my boyfriend) was to be Darth Talon. I'm happy I came upon this thread.

You can go with very thin leather strapping that you can get at Tandy's Leather Factory, or Joanns has faux leather in a couple of colors you could cut up into strips. That's what my girlfriend used for Aayla Secura and she's really happy with the results:

Lol, already having nightmares about that. It took two hours to paint my girl blue for the day and 2 1/2 to get it off. Can't imagine doing that in red with more body exposure, and all those tatooooos. But Darth Talon's such a beast. Whoever doesn't believe cosplay = pain never cosplayed a Twi'lek!! :drink: :drink: :drink:

This is also a good source for Twi'lek information. They're all Twi'lek costumers, so you should be able to find some useful information there.

Awesome, just stumbled on this post on here, and signed up on the website. Thank you! I have been looking for a group of Twi'lek costumers.. found much information on there already. Been trying to make my own leekus for some time... thanks again!

If you're searching for a lekku, contact Pam. I'm not entirely sure what her username over on that forum is (thought I think it has "Pam" in it), but everyone over there should know her so just ask if you can't find her. Many Twi'lek costumers buy their lekku from her, and she does a superb job. I've seen her work in person and I can say that her lekku look great.

Edit:
I forgot that someone already linked to Pam's website. Oops. :P
