When it comes to Asajj Ventress cosplay, there are many different looks to choose from — even ones that never appeared on-screen.
Cosplay allows for a wide range of creativity when it comes to choosing costume pieces, but reference material is always close at hand for modeling and inspiration. In the case of one stunning Instagram photo featuring a model channeling her entire inner Ventress, it wasn’t a scene from a Clone Wars episode but rather a collectible item that was used to craft the shot’s main subject.
The costuming in the above Instagram photo, according to the caption, is based on a recent statue of the character released by Sideshow Collectables. In the statue and photo, Ventress is holding two red-bladed lightsabers and wearing a red hooded cloak that makes her appearance even more fierce and intimidating.
The photographer behind the Instagram image, @geoleon, has over 300K followers and regularly posts original photos of models in various costumes. Star Wars characters occasionally make an appearance on the page, but the variety ranges from superheroes like Batgirl to Wizarding World-inspired characters and more.
As part of the photographer’s portfolio, Ventress is portrayed n a style she would probably model closely in live-action if she were ever to appear in another series or a movie.
I know what you’re thinking — “But Ventress is dead! Dark Disciple killed her!” Are we forgetting that Ventress was a member of the Nightsisters, notorious for not dying even when they should have died the first time they suffered fatal wounds? It wouldn’t be difficult to bring her back using the element of magic. It could still happen.
