Best Darth Nihilus Costume Guide
There are Star Wars characters who experience a conflict between the Jedi and the Dark Side of the Force and then there’s Darth Nihilus. He’s simply bad. As a Dark Lord of the Sith, Darth Nihilus trained with another apprentice at the Trayus Academy. Together, they formed a triumvirate led by three joint Dark Lords of the Sith: Darth Traya, and her two apprentices, Darth Nihilus and Darth Sion. However, Darth Nihilus’ hunger for power supersedes anything, including the Sith organization–so much so that he plots to kill his mentor to assume power and cause as much death and destruction as possible. Get the look of the Sith Lord who is bent on eliminating the Jedi order with this Darth Nihilus costume guide.
To cosplay Darth Nihilus’ creepy look and transform yourself into the Sith Lord gone wrong, you’ll need Nihilus’ Mask, Black Tunic, Black Leather Gloves, Ski Mask, Black Boots, and don’t forget your Light Saber.
Darth Nihilus Cosplay Costumes
It would be tough to find a person alive who isn’t familiar with the Star Wars franchise. Star Wars has captured the hearts of people for generations through movies, video games, comics, and action figures. There’s hardly an area of pop-culture that Star Wars hasn’t impacted. Darth Nihilus isn’t known from the widely seen feature films, but rather a video game, Star Wars: Knights of The Old Republic 2: The Sith Lords. The most noticeable characteristic of Darth Nihilus is the mask. Get the mask (and the lightsaber) and you’ll have most of the look taken care of.
Because the Star Wars mythology is so wide-reaching, you can cosplay Darth Nihilus for almost any event–comic-con, eSport events, movie premieres, or Halloween. Darth Nihilus is a great alternative to same old Star Wars characters everyone typically cosplays.
About Darth Nihilus
Darth Nihilus began as a human but lost everything he had during the Mandalorian Wars. He was left stranded on the planet Malachor V and was one of the only survivors when the planet was nearly obliterated. It was here that he discovered his hunger for power that unintentionally drained the life-force of another survivor. He was found by Darth Traya, a Dark Lord of The Sith who explained that his hunger was fuelled by the Force. Along with Traya and another apprentice named Sion, Darth Nihilus became a member of the Sith Triumvirate, but it didn’t last long with Nihilus and Sion conspiring to kill their mentor.
Darth Nihilus desired power above all else and set about trying to destroy the Jedi Order at all costs. One of his strengths was being able to sense parts of the galaxy making it easy for him to locate and wipe out the Jedi. In the end, however, he was brought to his end by a former pupil of his, Visas Marr.
