New Customs - Nightsisters of Dathomir

The Nightsisters are a group of Dathomiri Witches who can wield the dark side of the Force. While that may not seem like a big deal, they are quite different from your run of the mill Sith Lord.

This causes a great deal of confusion among the Jedi scholars and even some fans. (There is also confusion among the more casual fan as they think that they are just the stereotypical Hot Topic patron transported into the Star Wars universe.)

The Nightsisters are also more in tune with nature and animals, much like the Druid class of Advanced Dungeons & Dragons 2nd Edition. (How is that for some nerd street cred? Long live the Thac0 system!!!) The Nightsisters can also tame beasts like the Rancor and Wampa using them as mounted guardians to wreck havoc on the innocent of the Galaxy.  Any way you cut it, these Nightsisters are very interesting characters, they also seem to be growing in popularity among SW fans because of their proficiency in the Force and their unique looks. It's worth noting that there is an upcoming episode of the Clone Wars that will feature the Nightsisters bringing forth (Jump the shark alert!) Darth Maul's baby brother to kill the Jedi...

After doing a little "Wookiepedia" research on them I thought it would be fun to make some Nightsister customs. I was getting a bit bored of making Mumm-Ra looking Sith Lords. I had some leftover EU Shaak Ti bodies and thought they would make a great base to turn into Nightsisters. Here are the two recent Nightsisters customs:
