Outstanding Asajj Ventress Cosplay Brings Dooku’s Apprentice To Life

A Star Wars cosplayer has brought a stunning interpretation of Asajj Ventress to life, completing The Clone Wars villain’s look with crimson blades.

A cosplayer has brought an astonishing interpretation of Asajj Ventress from Star Wars: The Clone Wars to life, celebrating the character’s time as Count Dooku’s apprentice. For the first half of the series, Ventress served as the main antagonist for Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Ahsoka Tano, delivering victories for the separatists as she sought to destroy the Jedi. She was ultimately betrayed by Dooku and Darth Sidious, prompting her to become a Nightsister and learn dark side powers to take revenge against the Sith.


Cosplayer Graciethecosplaylass put together an amazing appearance based on Asajj Ventress’ Sith assassin days, inspired by Sideshow Collectibles’ Mythos line.

The cosplay does an exceptional job of mixing the make-up needed for a Nightsister with realism, and the red lightsabers highlight a very neat costume. While plans had to change due to a mask mandate, the cool factor is on full display here

Asajj Ventress Deserves More Star Wars Stories

Dooku and Ventress

When cosplays like this are shared, a greater appreciation for lesser-explored Star Wars characters is often the result. Ventress has yet to make a live-action appearance, but the character impressed George Lucas enough in the Star Wars: Clone Wars 2D series to bring her into the canon The Clone Wars. Ventress’ time as a Sith assassin doesn’t portray the character with much agency, instead seeing her run errands to attack the main heroes of the Republic.

A deep-dive into Ventress’ formative years a dark sider would make for a fascinating story. Dooku: Jedi Lost told a small portion of this tale, as Ventress was something of a narrator as she discovered more about her master’s life before the Sith. Without the involvement of Christopher Lee, a live-action series with Dooku and Ventress would be hard to justify, but there are ways to feature the assassin in other projects that may flashback to The Clone Wars
