The Agent. Star Wars: Rebels
After the Galactic Empire came to power, Tano joined the growing rebel movement. She became the manager of an intelligence network and adopted the codename "Fulcrum." As Fulcrum, Tano provided intelligence to various rebel factions throughout the war. Eventually Ahsoka would come face to face with her former master, Anakin Skywalker, now Darth Vader.
Similar to the Clone Wars Ahsoka build, this costume presented new challenges. This headpiece, since it is much larger, is made from upholstery foam and liquid latex. Her armor, crown, and boots are made from craft foam covered in a thermoplastic. There are small colored LED lights in her forearm and chest armor. The body paint is once again applied with an airbrush, using stencils to create the white markings.
Seeing Ahsoka Tano grow up from Clone Wars to Rebels has been an incredible experience as a Star Wars fan. She has quickly become a fan-favorite and it has been an honor to portray the character at several charity events with The Rebel Legion.
During the final episode of Rebels, Ahsoka's fate was left as a cliffhanger. She mysteriously reappeared dressed in a new costume and donning a new white cloak. Her story is not over, and as a fan, I can't wait to see what's to come!
COSPLAY FOR A CAUSE
In late 2016, I had my first costume acceptance by the Rebel Legion. Then in early 2018, I was also accepted into the 501st Legion. The Rebel/501st Legions are an international Star Wars costuming organization created by, of, and for people interested in creating costumes from the Star Wars mythos. Members of the Legions research, create, build and improve their costumes in a place where costumers with similar passions share skills, tips and ideas. To become a member, a costume must meet all guidelines set by the organization- the goal is to look as if you've walked off the movie set!
The Rebel Legion, along with their 'bad guy' affiliate, the 501st Legion, have a worldwide membership and choose to give back to their communities through costumed volunteer activities and charity events. No one can provide the public with a greater range of Star Wars costumes, nor a more personable, interactive, face to face experience.
As of 2018, I am proud to say I have four Rebel Legion approved costumes and two 501st approved costumes. I participate in charity troops with the Rebel Legion's Sunrider Base and the 501st's Southern California Garrison.
