There is a 'standard' for Luke Skywalker Snowspeeder / X-Wing Pilot in ESB, however, I'd like to submit a revision. I'll post up both the original and the revision requested below with explanations and references.

Required Items:

1. Orange flight suit with altered collar
2. Orange flight jacket with rank insignia on LH pocket, puffy collar, zip front , hip level length, & ribbed sleeves.
3. Leg flares
4. Brown holster with octagonal buckle with leg strap around right leg.
5. Lightsaber D-ring hook on front of belt so lightsaber hangs down front of left leg & either 2 or 3 regular pouches.
6. White flak vest with ribbing
7. Grey chest box with grey hose OR aviation hose and appropriate decoration (buttons, pin stripes etc.)
8. X-Wing helmet with Luke’s decals
9. White/off white leather gloves with suede gauntlets and Comm Pad on left wrist
10. Leg pockets on coveralls
11. Gray suede boots with suede wraps around them and 3 white straps.

Revisions:

2. It is listed the Flight jacket has a zip front but it is a velcro closure on the front of the jacket. It is noted in Star Wars Costumes, The Original Trilogy book that the jacket has a Velcro front closure.

You can see at the top of the collar the Velcro.


6. Flax Vest, Luke's vest. It should be noted it is also worn backwards from the X-wing vest and there are two additions added on Luke's vest over the standard Snowspeeder Pilots vests.

First, There are 2 rivets/washers on each of the shoulder straps on the 3rd row of stitching up from the top of the vest.





Second, There are 2 metal hooks between the 1st and 2nd row of ribbing on the vest. These appear to be the same size metal hook used on the belt to hold the lightsaber. You can see the lightsaber hook here in comparison to the vest hooks.



And a standard Snowspeeder pilot without the extra vest details.



12. There should also be added that Luke is wearing the Off-white/Beige balaclava or cloth-covered soft helmet.

You can see Luke is wearing the cap in both these photos on Hoth sequences.





A side note the cap is absent when he is on Dagobah when he takes his helmet off when exiting the X-Wing after he's crashed.

Thanks,
Christina

Well done in catching the details. Smile You should either post this in pilots (X-wing) or simply send this to the RLSC command, so they can have a look at it.

I wasn't sure where to post it so I started here under Luke as its specific to his specific Snowspeeder character not to all Snowspeeder Pilots.

I posted it just now under NEW/UNFINISHED COSTUME STANDARDS under the COSTUME STANDARDS Section. As it says on that thread:
"This topic is the place where all new costume standards check-lists are written and submitted before being added to the official Rebel Legion standards check-lists. It is also the place to suggest revisions to existing standards."

Not sure how to send this to RLSC command as I don't know who that is, the list of judges lists a lot of people so really not sure whom specific this would go to.

You can pm HazardThree, so he knows where to find this. Smile That way there should be no risk of it getting missed.

Just throw a link to the thread at him. I'm sure he will appreciate it.
