I see events that are posted as "Formal/Canon". I think I know what the Canon part is but what rules or standards determine if a costume is "Formal" vs "Informal" (or whatever non-Formal is called these days). There are so many Star Wars clubs these days that are recognized by Disney and invited to "Formal/Canon" events that the numbers allotted to each club get reduced considerably. Which begs the question are all these clubs using the same standards to determine if a costume is Formal? For example - is a generic Jedi or generic Mando considered "Formal"? I tried looking up the standards that define "Formal" but was not successful.

In my way of thinking if someone wanted to create a costume that would be considered Formal for these "Formal/Canon" events they should also submit the costume to either the Rebel Legion or 501st judges so there would be a standard or somewhat consistent application and classification.

BTW - I tried posting this to the "Costume Standards" section but that is a restricted area for postings. If this is the wrong area for this topic please feel free to move it.

"Informal" is an old designation that the RL no longer uses. Once upon a time, costumes would sometimes be approved as informal when, for example, there weren't enough references to actually fully approve it. However, that practice ended, so the only "informal" approvals left are the ones grandfathered in. All costumes approved by the Rebel Legion now are approved as "Formal/canon". That includes generic Jedi, generic pilots, etc. Generic Mandos aren't approved in the RL, though you can submit them to the Mando Mercs (one of the other LFL recognized costuming clubs).
