Discovered on the war-torn planet of Rattatak, Asajj became the ruthless and cunning apprentice of Darth Tyranus. This first appearance of Asajj was drawn from early concept designs for the secondary villain in Star Wars Episode II.


Costume components:

Asajj Ventress Head and Make-up 1. Bald Head: The costumer’s hair is shaved or covered with a tight-fitting bald cap. If a bald cap is used, the cap is tinted to match the color of the costumer's face, and the edges are blended to make them as inconspicuous as possible.

2. Complexion and Battle Tattoos: Special effects makeup is used to give the costumer’s head, neck, and hands a white or very pale gray skin tone. The lips should be tinted dark gray or black.

Asajj's triangular tattoo patterns should be reproduce in black special effects makeup. There are four triangle designs that radiate about each ear. Two two addition triangles point forward on each cheekbone, just in front of the ears.


Asajj Ventress Contacts 3. Dathomirian Eyes: White special effects contacts may be worn to replicate the solid white eyes that as seen in some Asajj Ventress reference.

Asajj Ventress Collar 4. Collar: The collar is made of a black leather or leatherette material. The neck of the collar is high and form fitting. A pattern of horizontal lines encircle the shoulders and neck. The outer edge of the collar reaches to the outer curve of the shoulders, or it may drape over the tops of the arms. The edges of the collar are connected to the shirt, and do not hang loosely.

5. Shirt: The form-fitting shirt is made of a matte stretch material. The fabric used for the center front of the shirt, the shoulders, the center back, and the long sleeves is a pale gray color. The side panels beneath the arms are darker gray or black in color. As an optional detail, a horizontal line patterns may be applied into the torso and sleeves of the shirt. Piping may be used to accent the princess seams that run down the front and back of the shirt.



Asajj Ventress Forearm Wraps

6. Forearm Wraps: The forearm wraps are made of the same material as the collar. The wraps reach from the wrists to just below the elbows. A triangular or square extension may be used to cover the back of the hands, or wraps may be used that go between the fingers and thumb, thus covering both the back of the hand and the palm.


Asajj Ventress Belts 7. Belts: A pair of black leather or leatherette belts are draped to create an "X" pattern in the front and back.

Attachment points for lightsabers are made of "O" or "D" rings. These rings are located on the front side of each belt, just over the hip bones. The rings may be attached directly to the leather of the belts, or they may hang from short leather extensions.

Alternative Belt Option: When worn with an obi, a single black leather belt with a silver "O" shaped buckle can be used.

Asajj Ventress Skirt 8. Skirt: The wide, flowing skirt is approximately ankle length. The fabric may be flat or pleated. The skirt is made with black or very dark gray fabric, and it is designed in two sections. The back section of the skirt covers the back and sides of the costumer's legs. The front section is narrow, but still very full. The front of the skirt may open over the front of each thigh, revealing the leggings beneath. A shorter over-skirt may also be worn.
