Custom Flashback - Coruscant Nights Laranth Tarak (2/10)

Laranth Tarak is a pretty cool character from the Coruscant Nights novels. She is a Twi'lek Jedi Gray Paladin who helps Jax Paven find his way in the post Jedi Galaxy. You can learn more about her here.

It's no surprise that Twilek females are the most beloved female aliens in the Star Wars universe. They are especially loved by Galactic Geeks when they can wield a Lightsaber, but when they can sling dual blasters with deadly accuracy their geek cred goes up to the 10th power! While there is not much visual reference on her, the description in the novels gave enough reference to visualize the characters appearance. I decided to take a crack at this obscure Jedi character. Like all Twi'leks, she need the sex appeal but also needed a deadly edge to her. After all she survived Order 66, countless Imperials and battle! Roaming the streets of Coruscant can be deadly so she needed to look like she has the street smarts to survive. So here is what I came up with:

She turned out pretty cool and used some parts that I thought would never get around to using. I would love to hear your comments and hate mail.

Formula Fun:
Body and legs: Marris Brood (A figure who is limited by her sculpt but it really lent itself well to this particular custom. )
Arms: ROTS Luminara Unduli.
Head: Evolution Cesi "Doc" Eirriss
Belt: G.I.Joe ROC Reactive Armor Scarlett
Blaster: ROTS Bail Organa
Lightsaber Hilt: Evolutions TFU Jedi Apprentice
Trench coat: No idea. I got it in a fodder lot and it was really awesome. I wish I knew.

As always your feedback comments and hate mail are welcome!
