You do know that the OMO (Outpost Membership Officer) has no say in costume approvals. That is all overseen by the Legion Costume Judges.

Making costumes is one of the missions of our group. We enjoy it! Most of us have some talent at it. If you are making a costume there are resources our members can help you find. No one at the base level can approve your costume but we have all been through the process of getting our costumes approved and can share our experience and knowledge that will make things easier.

I Know we can't really invite you to a sewing circle here in LV to work on costume but if you send me some pics and what you need to work on maybe our group can share some costuming info help you get it done. Im really excited to have some members in Reno can't wait to add you as a member.

I'm really new to costuming. and my fingers have more holes in them than a strainer. My problem is I'm a retired marine with sever ptsd. I know its going to sound odd but I can wear a face covering like a mask or helmet with my costume and I'm ok. I don't and I'm pretty non-functional. My Wifes a nurse and she says the mask is like a security thing. I can see out but no one can see in. So trying how to make an outfit that's dark, Neutral Jedi type thing with the mask.

Not sure if that's allowed or not in this group.

I would start on the forums costume list we have a few characters that are masked that may fit what you are looking for. I think Tusken Raiders, less formally referred to as Sand People or simply as Tuskens may be a place to start Fully wrapped helmet/head similar to one as seen in Episode IV: must include cloth wraps (duck cloth, muslin or similar fabric should be used), leather/simulated leather mouth-wraps, 2 tapered/straight eye-stalks with 2 slits cut into the underside of each, 4 head-spikes, 2 blood-spitters, 1 silver nose-piece (tooth) with at least 2 vertical slots, screened lenses so as not to see the eyes and mouth of the wearer. 2. Robes – Inner Robe of similar color, texture, and pattern to those seen in Episode IV. Outer Robe made of a similar color, texture, and pattern to those seen in Episode IV. 3. Breather similar to ones seen in Episode IV 4. Fabric waist wrap of similar color, texture, and pattern of those seen in Episodes IV. 4. Sand-colored cloth/leather gloves. 5. Cloth arm wraps covering the arms until concealed within robe(s). 6. Boots/shoes covered with cloth wrappings. (If shoes then cloth leg wraps covering the legs until concealed within robe.) 7. At least one bandolier of similar type/design as seen in Episodes IV across the chest/waist. 8. Gaffi stick OR Tusken Rifle either/both of similar type/design as found in Episodes IV. All elements of this costume MUST BE weathered/tattered to simulate living in a barren, desert environment.
Remember that the RL approved costume is a standard to strive for and is usually not what we achieve the first costume we ever try to put together. I like the Tuskin because you do not need to be able to sew an perfectly straight or buy expensive fabric that you only have one chance to get it correct. Also there are a lot of costumers out there willing to help you with tutorials and working progress.
If your heart is set on jedi start with the generic jedi and then you can customize to your needs. Sever PTSD can be debilitating and I hope our group may offer you a community of understanding generous people that may help you past feeling "non-Functional". As this group is completely voluntary you will never be asked to participate in activities that your not completely comfortable with.
