From light to dark and back again, the tale of Darth Revan cosplay is fraught with danger and dual-wielding lightsabers!

Revan is a character with a long and winding backstory. He started as a Jedi Padawan, but endured many trials on his journey through the Mandalorian Wars and Jedi Civil War. Though his current status in the canon leaves his allegiance fairly uncertain, he is absolutely a character to be feared. Today we’re taking a look at a hauntingly good Darth Revan cosplay!

Creating the Cosplay

In a sea of dark cloaks, swishy robes, and black-on-black accessorizing, it’s a marvel that any Sith Lord is able to stand out from the rest. Revan donned the mask of a fallen Mandalorian, and it is this that marks him as unique amongst other Sith Lord “looks.” Add to that his dual wielding lightsabers and a gorgeous waistbelt worthy of any renaissance festival garb, and you have some serious ambiance. It’s hard to emote when your face doesn’t show, but this Darth Revan cosplay certainly does the trick. He manages to look both pensive and fierce at the same time. Enjoy the cinematic quality of this week’s Darth Revan cosplay feature!

Revan had many Masters, Zhar, Dorak, Master Kae before Kae left for the Wars. Toward the end of his training, he sought out many to learn techniques. It is said that he returned to his first Master at the end of his training, in order to learn how he might best leave the Order.

I don’t know your name—but I take up your cause. I will not remove your mask until there is justice—until the Mandalorians have been defeated once and for all. So swears… Revan!

It was not your ships or your men or your vaunted ‘fight for freedom’ that won this, the final battle of the war. It was by the actions of one person–the Jedi Revan–that you prevailed. Revan’s strategies and tactics defeated the best of us. Even Mandalore himself was taken aback by the ferocity, the tenacity, and the subtlety of Revan’s plans.

When they left after the Mandalorian Wars ended, they were Jedi. When they returned… they were something else.

This… this must be what Revan and Malak found when they entered this temple. This must be where their journey down the dark side began.
