Should we require that the Covertec be gray? It's not present or visible in most of the reference images, and where it is, it seems to just be in bright sunlight. The shade matches the way black is shown in a lot of other Clone Wars models.

The wording on the slit at the back has me a bit confused. Rather than a separate piece of fabric, is it possible the slit is actually just a pleat of some odd kind? Really missing being able to check this stuff with a few clicks on Netflix Sad

So there are references where it is grey, even in the direct sunlight it's still closer to the color of the saber and the belt greeblies than it would be if it were back, it's not a major change, just throw a quick thing of spray paint on it.

As for the back no, in gathering references for another costume I was watching a clip of the Malevilonce arc (on youtube) and there's the scene where Plo is outside the escape pod, you can see a lot more motion in the back slit than there would be if there was a pleat, but I get your point.
If you're voicing this from a concern of sewing it's a pretty simple thing, as you sew the skirt pieces at the side seams you're simply just sewing 3 pieces of fabric together instead of two, you're basically making 2 backs.

I think the restriction on colour of the saber clip is going to cause problems with people as far as maintenance is concerned. Paint won't stick to it very well as it's a polypropylene plastic. What with the costumer interacting with the clip regularly it will require frequent sanding and re sprey for continuity and tidyness.

I see your concern, but you also may want to remember: some people 3D print their clips, and then the issues with painting isn't that much of a big deal

Re: slit, right on, I hadn't seen the episode in some time. That makes sense. Including that frame in the reference gallery might be a good idea.

Re: clip, I still think that's splitting hairs to a level that we typically haven't with animated costumes. The clips are always black in every other source. It's 90% obscured if the saber is on the belt and doesn't draw attention if it isn't. I think allowing for it to be gray while still allowing black is the best route.

I'm gonna put on my graphics professional hat for a moment; shading blacks is inherently tricky and it's just as likely that it's a black texture that's reflecting grey if you're seeing it that way. I think both should be allowed.

Hi everyone

I agree with Lisa. We can allow both options. It is an important element but being an animation, we can have more freedom than a Costume based on a character of flesh and blood.

Great Job Kelly! and thank you all for your suggestions!

Yours!
