Garsa Fwip Silicone Lekku
This headpiece sculpt is my best representation of Madam Garsa Fwip's distinctive lekku style. I have been unable to make an exact match to the headpieces used during filming because silicone has very different properties in comparison to foam latex. The design includes sharper curves at the top of the headpiece, and a raised ridge that runs down the back of each lekku.
I will include a pair of matching ear cones with each headpiece. I know Garsa Fwip does not have visible ear cones, but including a pair will allow costumers the flexibility of using their Garsa headpiece for other Twi'lek characters if they wish to do so.
Flesh Tone Lekku:
This is a basic flesh tone. It is not customized.
Custom Color Lekku:
Please click on the "ADD A NOTE TO YOUR ORDER" link when you get to the shopping cart, and use that box to let me know which body paint brand and color you would like me to match.
A Note on Custom Colored Flesh Tone Lekku:
From time to time people order custom colored lekku and ask me to match their own skin tone. Please keep in mind that it is VERY difficult to match a skin tone... there are many color variations in a person's face, and it's very difficult to get a color match. I have found that the best way to resolve this is for me to send you a sample piece of silicone in my standard flesh tone. You can then let me know if it needs to be made lighter, darker, more red or yellow in tone, etc. If you know that your skin tone is going to be different from my standard flesh tone, it helps to give me a starting point to work from. Photos help!
Add-On decorations may be included in the order, but they will be limited by the unique shape of the lekku. If you order a design that I cannot paint on the Garsa style lekku, I will let you know and we can work out other options.
A Note About the Expanding Foam:
I fill the top curve of each headpiece with soft expanding foam. This foam helps hold the shape of the lekku where they curve out from the head, and it helps to hold the pillow stuffing in place. I am having SOOOO much trouble with the foam in the Garsa Fwip headpieces! Because of the unique shape of the top section of the lekku, no matter how many times I pour and re-pour the foam, it still tends to be more visible than other styles of lekku. I just can't hide the transition from the foam to the pillow stuffing. I will continue to pour the foam into the lekku, and hope that the head wrap decorations on Garsa's costumes will hide that transition. If the transition is too visible and you don't like it, you can pull the foam out and just add more pillow stuffing instead. Sorry!
