Oh, and Whoopi Goldberg would be tending bar at the Dark Star.

    At least there'd still be Leeta...uh...I mean Lyta.

    How can he not know? He is "AN AUTHORIZED SELLER OF STAR TREK BABYLON 5 COLLECTOR MASKS" and even notes that "STAR TREK: BABYLON 5 IS REGISTERED TRADEMARK OF WARNER BROTHERS."

    Nothin' fishy there at all.

    Depends. Andreas used a mask, as did Marshall Teague, Robin Sachs, Morgan Sheppard, and every other lead Narn. It's just that they were professional masks, and so there was no latex around the mouth and eyes -- that was done with makeup in such a way so that it appears to be a seamless join to the mask part. So, conceivably, you could buy the official mask, cut out some of the latex around the eyes and the mouth, and if you have a friend who's a professional makeup artist, have them match the mask with makeup in the areas around your mouth and eyes so that you have more flexibility of expression.

    I was hoping for some makes up steps and go hire a professional. Those mask you lose the ability to speak.

    Also what about the clothing. Narns had the best costumes IMO.

    That's not a Delenn headpiece; it's a generic Minbari headpiece. I got one of those and made my own custom Delenn-as-hybrid version, cutting out the bald pate and installing combs into the bone crest in order to anchor it to my head.

    Bratling.

    Here's one of the Delenn headpieces from a company who should know how to spell her name.

    That's not as bad as I'd thought it'd be. Wasn't B5 that show that copied Deep Space 9?

    Thanks, all. So I guess Cosplay is LARP without the game.

    As for the mask, it looks about as good as the Narns in the back of any Narn crowd scene in B5. To those unaware, for budgetary reasons, the "front Narns" were made up professionally, pretty much like Andreas and Marshall Teague were; the "medium-distance Narns" were in less-convincing makeup; and the back Narns were in masks that were often just masks, barely or not at all attached to their faces with latex. I sometimes entertain myself by specifically looking at how bad the "back Narns" look in crowd scenes.
