I have been meaning to post this for some time now and a recent Endor costume application reminded me that this information needs to get to those who might be currently building an Endor Trooper and are considering the duster option rather than the capped sleeved vest or camo painted hoodie.

Please look at this photo of one of the actual "dusters" from Return of the Jedi.

This photo was scanned from the "Costumes of the Original Trilogy" book.




The one thing you will note is that the duster is floor length and not the "lab coat" that most have used as the duster in the past.

Note also the detail in the back..

So, if you are contemplating doing a duster version...you might want to google "butcher's coat" as they are generally floor length...

like this one
http://www.justlabcoats.com/ProductShopping.aspx?scode=RE-4004

The coat would have to have the snaps removed for sure....there are no snaps of buttons on the front of the duster.

You would also have to dye the coat tan first before applying camo paint.

Also...

AVOID BUTCHER'S COATS THAT ARE 100% POLYESTER!!!

I can't emphasize that enough!!

100% polyester fabric does NOT dye well using most dyes....
also...
the Design Master camo paint that we use does not adhere well either...
so..
get cotton or a cotton poly blend.

I hope this helps...

I assume we would also need to have the split added down the back of the coat as well?

At this time, I would say no....

The standard will need to go through a clarification first...
obviously...
any clarification of a standard would NOT affect already approved costumes.
