What is the answer in regards to the pants? Which pair of pants should one go with? I am working on this costume and the pants are my next piece to work on.


What is the question regarding the pants? Other than the new bloodstripes, they're very simple. Straight up dark blue pants. No pintuck seam, no riding seam. Normal jeans-style belt loops, nothing othersize or odd.

It's the brick vinyl bloodstripes that are tough.



My question is which pants go with the suede jacket? The blue with red blood stripe or the black with grey/tan blood stripe?


The pants with tan stripes were never worn in the film. They were part of an earlier costume concept that got dropped. Not clear why they showed up on display in some places... I guess they needed to fill a lot of display cases.

The *only* pants were very dark blue, with red blood stripes. The material was glossy, which kicks back a lot of light, so the reflections seen have produced quite a lot of confusion, especially in conjunction with the heavy weathering.

Is there a concrete answe on the jacket shoulders? I ordered balck to be safe but my jacket came in midnight blue. I need to know if I need to try and see if it can be replaced or what. Please any help here would be great. It’s really got me worried. I want to make sure I can have this approved.

There is fierce debate about whether the shoulder panels are black or super dark blue. I would imagine both would be acceptable, but you'll want a costume just to confirm, especially since I don't think the Standard has been finalized yet. Not sure if they can chime in during elections, though, so it's *possible* there could be some delay, if election rules prevent it. (Not sure, so just pointing out the possibility)

Up to date!

Here are some optional items I'd like to allow if we can. Many standards allow for subtle zippers on boots, and when a canon color is easily mistaken for another, reasonable shades of both are accepted.

-Dark blue for shoulder panels

-Very grayish slate blue for the shirt

-"If a zipper is present, it is subtle and located on the inside of the boot."

I would specify "Midnight Blue" as an alternate to the black shoulder panels, not "Dark Blue". Midnight is generally a darker, duller blue.

Would leather bloodstripes be acceptable? I see current standards are calling for "heat transfer vinyl or similar"... would leather be "similar"? We're currently looking at a practical long-lasting solution for accurate pants. I thought dark red leather would look the part, but also last a long time and might be a little more versatile than vinyl. What do you think?

UPDATE: Looking at using rubber for the side stripes... we've used these for detailed pieces on our Star Lord gloves and they hold up very well.

Are there any updates for this CRL? I’ve got a member asking for a CRL so they can start this build.

The only thing I've noticed as not being quite right (as far as I'm aware) is that the shirt collar is the same colour as the body of the shirt not the same as the bib (from the reference I've acquired!) and the shirt in the movie is both short and long sleeved depending on the location. I understand that canonically the shirt is long sleeved but Alden wore both while shooting.

Just my two cents! I can provide photos if necessary.

The short sleeve variant was for actor comfort only, of course, and never intended to be seen. In "actual Star Wars world", he only has a long sleeve shirt.

Back in our real world, that means you can never take the jacket off during a troop if you go with the short sleeve version. (although I can't recall if he even once removes the jacket anyway, making that the rule regardless, I'd think)
