In which forum or thread would discussion of the Maz Kanata costume belong.

I don't find any standards for it, either.

Thanks,

Hi JediKai,

I guess here would be the appropriate forum!

Regarding a standard, I don't think there is any yet. And to be honest, I'm not sure you could even validate a Maz Kanata, for (I think) the same reason you don't have Yoda. Maz is 1m24 tall and thus you would need to be around same length to validate, like you have a minimum height to be wookie or wampa. :s

But judges would have to vote about that I guess to confirm the height problem.

You are going to do this costume ? Would be cool to see anyway Smile

Hmmm. By that reasoning, how does anyone get approved as a Jawa?

I do know she is 4ft 1in. I'm "just" a foot taller.

Well, I only expressed my fear :s, I'm neither judge or able to decide that. I'm not so much in favor of such politics about height, specially for wookie for example, where you could just do a wookie child if smaller :p

Regarding the jawas, it's actually something I often see being criticised by members when you have tall jawas. So I can't tell you why exactly, my guess would be the following:
- Jawas are not face characters, for who standards are usually stronger.
- Even if the average size of jawas is 3ft4in, some can be taller than 5ft, almost as tall as C3PO apparently. It seems you can see one of them during the scene where they sell 3PO and R2 to the Lars in ep IV.

Hi, Kai. Long time no see.

I've seen a few people do Maz costumes via face paint. One of the major silicone mask makers does a very nice Maz mask. Mr Bungle I think. I'll try to find some info.

That's a good argument. I'll support you

Thanks Matt! Do you know whether any of them are approved for RL?

I don't know. I haven't looked, but I would guess no one has attempted a Maz in the Legion, yet.

Not sure why Mr. Bungles link isn't working, but you can find it on Facebook. His page is Mr. Bungles FX Stuff.
I saw the mask in question at DragonCon in a display for the costuming track. I'm not sure if it's wearable as I don't see any eye holes and I think the character eyes are to far apart.

Are you still in the Seattle area?
