Durge, everyones favourite GenDai
In Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Separatists forces are at war with the Jedi and the Republic that the Jedi Knights are sworn to defend. Hand-picked by the Separatist leader Count Dooku, Durge is a mercenary/bounty hunter whose inhuman battle prowess and unquenchable bloodlust make him an ideal commander for the Separatist army.
Durge, the madness behind the madness
I got the costuming bug and I got it bad. Previously, I realized costumes of both The Clone Emperor, from the story of Dark Empire, and Prince Xizor from Shadows of the Empire. I see creating Durge as a costume challenge and an opportunity to learn new skills and techniques. (Special thanks to Judz Dwedd of The Dented Helmet costume forum for his sharing invaluable fibreglass experience and helping me to get started.)
This costume and these webpages are inspired by the Star Wars Saga, envisioned by George Lucas. The image of Durge was designed at the Skywalker Ranch Art Department, and further developed by contributors for select media; Genndy Tartakovsky animated the character for The Cartoon Network, while Dark Horse Books first introduced Durge in Star Wars: Republic, The New Face of War. Finally, Hasbro Toy produced both an animated version and “realistic” Clone Wars action figures of Durge.
