Hi.

So I am in the process of making my second Jedi costume. I have been thinking of doing a humanoid alien species and I would really love to be able to do a Twi'Lek.

I am wondering if there are any specific rules for this that aren't related to a face character. Are there any general Twi'Lek rules?

I am asking as I would really prefer to not shave my beard off. Ever. haha.

Hawk Ryo (http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Hawk_Ryo) is shown to have facial hair and there is now a cannon reference to Human/Twi'lek hybrids. So I think there may at least be a small scope for a bearded Twi'Lek to exist.

Ff anyone has anything to add I would appreciate it Smile Smile

I would honestly suggest going for something better documented. You would need more than one pic of a soul patch to have a bearded character of a species not known for facial hair.

When you say one image is not enough, would multiple images of one character be enough for a judge to consider further? Or do you mean multiple images of multiple characters? There are some more references for Hawk Ryo here Smile. From my research he appeared in 14 Dark Horse Comics.

So I came across an approved Male Twi'lek who had the same beardy problem as me. He was approved for both a Pilot and Generic Jedi with a covering for his face. Shout out to Crix (Thomas Turner). With this in mind I had some ideas as I'm not ready to give up on my Twi'lek dreams just yet. Twi'lek males are rare and I really really want to be approved for one.

My first thought was for a headpiece with large panels on the side of the head. I based the very rough design below from Hawk Ryo's and Rianna Saren's headpieces. I'm not sure at this point if there are any strict rules around headpieces. Do they have to be an exact copy of something in the Star Wars universe or can they encompass different references?

My thought for the design was to cover large areas of my beard on the sides of my face. I thought maybe if I only my chin and mustache was showing I might have a better chance of being approved as it would be closer to the Hawk Ryo facial hair look.

Then I had some ideas for covering my face entirely in case I end up with a flat out no facial hair, regardless of the Hawk Ryo case.

I saw that Hawk Ryo wears a long scarf and thought something similar could be worn over my face. I have drawn this in my rough sketch. I came back to Thomas Turners costume and thought something like that would be acceptable. Some kind of Shado Vao style head wrap that also covers my face. I also had the idea of including a respirator in the costume. This isn't something i'm keen on to be honest.

Anyway these are my thoughts. Maybe someone has some other ideas that would work and allow my to get my Twi'lek on Smile

Hey!

I like the idea of your beard Twilek!
I think if you are not full beard then it is okay to wear a beard.
You have your reference Picture from the Comic, so if you are going to approve your character then you can add this pics as reference.

There are Twilek / Human Hybrids in the Clone Wars Series.
I don´t know which Episode it was, but a Clone have a daughter with an human Very Happy
So erverything it is possible!

Season2 episode 10 "The deserter".
I think you meant a clone and a twi'lek ? Very Happy They have 2 children.
Shaeeah Lawquane and Lek Lawquane.
They are both twi'lek/human hybrid, but are not the children of the clone, they have another father Wink
