I am using the OT visual guide to begin work on this costume. I do not seem to be able to find a write up on the standards. It is described well in the book so I presume that following that will make one that is up to par. The pictures indicate the shirt and vest as a mustard colored beige but the verbal description indicates the shirt to be cotton polyester blend beige with elastic cuffs. The pants are khaki with the yellow stripe down the side and the cape is a loosely woven gray color with a braided macrame band holding onto two gray dome buttons.

Belt is brown as are the three pouches visible and the boots. The communicator is attached to brown leather around the left wrist. The belt buckle is a basic metal double loop style.

I also posted this under fringe because I am not sure where he goes at this point since he is a General..

He is a general so definitely in the GSC

I've changed your title on the OP to reflect it is a WIP (work in progress)

I am seeing pictures of him with blue pants and yellow stripe. The OT book says they are khaki colored.

All will be well to go with the book as it is official update?
That has been the norm with other costumes since it came out.

I'd like to see the fabric you're using. I'd say the colour is blue grey not khaki but khaki has so many shades and the USA definition of khaki is different to the uk.

The trousers are the same colour as endor Leia and wording versus actual colour can't be used to define the actual colour.

Please post up the ref shots and the detail from the book and let's test and solve it. Smile

these are the images from the book.







The boots look more brown than black as seen by the stand base for the mannequin. The same is true of the wrist band. The pouches appear to be black or a very dark brown as does the webbed belt. The pants are a light khaki color. On screen shots they look pale blue.

I know the book has resulted in changes in other costumes but originals were grandfathered such as my Mon Mothma. Since I am doing this one for some one, I need to know what to do for construction.

The boots are black. The lighting in the photos is affecting the colours.
I can't see a mention of the word khaki.

The pictures taken of the actual costume in the ref library are much more accurate. They are black boots and blue grey trousers.

Also the belt and pouches are black and the wrist communication is dark brown.

Of course this can be put to the CSC after a discussion here for the standards.

Please Put some standards together and let's get a consensus.

I did see two folks in this costume at Celebration.

I thought there were standards already but neither Jason Rutledge or I could find them. He was going to look for them.
Perhaps they are in the Archive or ??? misplaced when new website was done?

I thought the boots were brown because the platform of the mannequin stand i definitely black. It does seem weird that he would have brown boots but they sure do look it. Black is much easier to do.

I did not find the costume references on this. I checked in References and if you have the link I would greatly appreciate it if you could post it.
Thanks.

I also can not find any costume standards for this. Since we do have a member from Argentina who is approved, there must be some somewhere.

The shirt is the wrong colour

Should be beige if the light is washing it out then it is too light.

I saw the actual costume the other day and took some pics which I will try and upload later for you

the cloak looks good from memory bit will upload that too.
