This is probably a silly question, but for a Naboo Captain or Naboo Security Officer, do they have to be male/masc presenting? I'm currently considering it as next years big build.

Hi! this is not a silly question, don't worry! everyone in the Rebel Legion can build whatever they want! I could also build a Luke Skywalker as a female, for example! So go for it and good luck with your building Very Happy

To clarify, are you asking if your costume needs to look like a male character? There's no need to hide female attributes for this costume. We know from the books that there are also female security officers. Panaka's wife, Captain Mariek Panaka, is a good example.

https://starwars.fandom.com/wiki/Mariek_Panaka

Even without Mariek, for generic costumes like this, gender isn't something we worry about. For face characters, the costume needs to present gender the same way the character does, but women can costume male characters and vice versa.

So if you are doing Typho or Gregor Panaka, then yes, you would need to present as male. If you were doing Mariek Panaka, you would need to present as female (although I don't know if we have non-text refs for her specifically). For a generic Naboo officer, however, you can present as either gender.

Yep, that was what I was asking! I might check if my base has any prequel characters first before looking into it more, but I would be going the generic route if I did it. Thank you so much for the swift replies.
