Hello everyone!
I am looking for some advice concerning a generic jedi costume.
I have my flame handmaiden costume, which I love to use, but it’s very hot to wear in summer (I live in Sicily, so I really need a less warm option than silk velvet), so I am looking to make a sort of desert inspired jedi.
I have some fabric, some crinkle cotton gauze, as the one for Obi Wan ep. III, and some wool for the robe, but as I have some peculiar ideas about the style, I wanted to ask if they can be accepted, before starting the actual costume making.
I have the following sketches:
The first one would have a floor or ankle length tunic, which I’d like not to be lined. Transparence would be just enough to make it look like a desert dress, as the fabric is just slightly sheer, and would only be translucent when backlit. I am still thinking whether I like it better without a skirt, shouwing the trousers, or with a heavier skirt, to be sewn to the vest-like inner tunic.
It would have a Y style tabard, backed with a strong fabric, with a not backed wide monk hood. I wanted to make it so that under the collar there’s a small (not too much cleavage showing) triangole of bare skin, like Adi Gallia.
The tabard would be embroidered or painted with some tiny teal parts, all the rest would be in sand colors.
The second idea was a bit less innovative, with a basic jedi tunic, and a basic pair of tabards, with a hood attached, but with an overabundant number of fake inner tunics showing, with colors going to the brown of the tunic, to the teal-turquoise of the inner tunic. There would also be some painted and faded teal details at the end of the sleeves.

Do you think one of these could get approved?

For the robe, which I will be probably making after finishing the costume, I have found two interesting fabrics...the problem is that there’s not enough of a single one to make a robe. Following the idea of the desert jedi with the aged costume, do you think a robe in the style of the one Anakin has in ep. II would be approvable, with panels of slightly different browns?

Thank you for your help!

I'm not a judge, but I just had to say I love your idea - it sounds almost elfish Very Happy

the judges are always hesitant to say "yes" until they see it on your person.

technically, an opinion from a judge can be cited as "Legion Policy", after all..
..and they don't want to "prejudge" anything, until they see it in your application photos.



I'm not a costume judge, but your ideas sound 'ok-by-the-rules', from what you are describing.

the biggest issue seems to be, the choice of a "sheer" fabric. (semi-transparent when backlit from a certain angle)..
..but the rules say nothing about the choice of fabric.. I would suggest taking photos with a flash (not backlit). it should be fine. Wink

Old Ben has a skirt length outer tunic, as does the librarian from the prequels (name escapes me). Sheer fabric doesn't necessarily sound family friendly to me.

When you say teal what shade are we talking about? As long as it isn't a highly saturated color it should be fine.

Thanks everybody for your messages Very Happy

For the choice of a "sheer" fabric, I've taken a photo with my hand inside.
What do you think?

The teal color is the one the that you can find at the bottom of the fifth column in the following image.
Is that ok?

That teal should be just fine. Smile

Fabric looks nice, too, but I would consider lining it. You can use another light weight fabric like cotton voile.

I asked about the multiple inner tunics, that was a nope.
Tunics that have transparancy are generally advised to get a liner. Don't know if it applies to the skirt part, but for simplicity sake, I think the skirt too will get the same treatment

Here I am again!
And again I have to thank everybody for the messages. Smile


I have another question about the costume:

Is allowed a Tonfa Lightsaber, (as Maris Brood)?

question: does any other character in Star Wars Legends use a similar tonfa lightsaber..
..or is this unique to Maris Brood?




here's how it usually works:

if you find a unique costume element which occurs on ONLY "one" jedi in the entire star wars universe...
..then this element is considered to be part of a "face character" costume (it is NOT allowed for generic jedi).

but: if you can find 2 (or more) jedi, who ALSO share that same detail, then it IS allowed for "generic" jedi.

(( example: anakin's glove. anakin is the ONLY character who wears this glove on his right hand. this glove is NOT allowed for "generic" jedi)).





so the question becomes: is Maris Brood the -ONLY- character in Star Wars Legends, who uses a tonfa lightsaber?

-- if she is the only jedi who uses this type of lightsaber, then it is not allowed to be used for your own "generic" character.

--IF she is NOT the only one in Star Wars Legends who uses it , (if you can find 2-or-more characters who ALSO use it), then it IS allowed to be used for your own generic character-creation.

(does this make sense?)





hope this helps. cheers.
