Would a costumes of a generic Force-user who is no longer Jedi or a Jedi in hiding as a smuggler or something else such as Ashoka or Kanan be allowed? Basically a generic Force-user who does not wear the standard Jedi garb. As a basic concept, I would say to think Kanan minus the shoulder armor, plus a cloak/hooded cape like Luke's in The Last Jedi. Thanks in advance!

Not as a generic, no. Right now, the "generic" Jedi options are standard generic Jedi, Jedi General, Librarian/archivist, and old republic armored. If you think there is enough canon visual references of Jedi in exile to 1) demonstrate a cohevise canonical look that can be judged off of, and 2) give a detailed, specific description if what pieces should be allowed, you could always try proposing a standard. I will be honest, though - I am not sure that first point is possible. You would need at least three different canon examples, with visual references, to show it's something generic

This isn't really feasible. It would be a uniform for a Jedi in hiding, and there just isn't a consistent look for that.

There are stories about several characters who did so though, you might read the Dark Horse Comics Dark Empire and Dark Empire 2, as well as the latter Dark Times (might be the better place to find references). There are a few characters in those that would have enough reference and are that type.

All this being said, just because it isn't a correct fit for the Legion doesn't mean you shouldn't make it if you want to- it sounds like a fantastic choice for conventions. But to do the kinds of events we do, it needs to either appear in visual materials, or have several examples of the same thing in visual materials. Unfortunately "trying not to look like a Jedi" is a bit too broad for us to create a generic standard for it.
