Hi,
this is my build of the R1 Mon Cal officers (Shollan).
Please let me know your comments.
As references, I've followed the pictures of the costume taken from the movie, from the Rogue One: A Star Wars Story "Creature Featurette" in YouTube. For the back of the costume, as there is no picture in the movie, I followed the Admiral raddus back from the action figure (even for the admiral there are no pictures of the back as far as I know).
Now: I have a question as I submitted my pictures for the approval of my costume, but I have been said by the judge that " the problem now is that there is no view of the back of the costume. To approve any costume without a standard, the Rebel Legion charter does require a front to back and head to toe reference."
So my question is: is this costume unapprovable by default as there are no pictures of the rear? is it true also for the admiral raddus (even in that case there are no references of the back of the costume, excluding the action figure. I'm asking it because I'm doing that costume right now - I love the mon calamaris)? I guess there are many costumes that have the same problem, but they have been approved anyway. I'm confused...

Let me know your comments, please.

Many thanks in advance for your help!

Mirko

Not properly the best place to seek advises or answers on costumes, the rebel legion forum.

Here's a link to the reference images I put together for a friend who did Raddus. Some of the other Profundity Mon Calamari are also visible, and if you make sure to click on the images themselves (don't take the thumbnails at face value) there are several back shots. Smile

I need to take a closer look at the reference images, but I think you'll want to look more closely at the knees. They look like they may have some of the same padded kneepad type detail that some of the the troopers do. Raddus's definitely do.

Thanks Kristina for your answer and pictures, I already searched in star wars screencaps, but there are no pisctures of the back, I mean legs and lower back. For the vest, I'm persuaded it is very different from raddus (a single jump suit as you can presume in the picture of the visual dictionary I posted above instead a two pieces vest as worn by raddus). I think at this stage I will never find reference pictures.

I know they are costume made but maybe it could help(?) sadly it's almost impossibile to find back reference for this costume.

In the meantime I had the chance to meet Tim Rose at an Italian event. I showed my costume, he said it is precise even in the back - I have witnesses ! :-)
I will try to have it approved again, perhaps this will be considerated by the judges.

If you look through the album I linked, there are several back and side references for the background Mon Cal.

I've separated them out for you here:

To get a full length background reference you have to look in the far back of the pictures- the guys behind the window. It is not sharp, but you get enough of the silhouette to combine with the closer partial refs and what we know about Rogue One costumes in general.

I think it's likely correct that it is either a jumpsuit or shirt tucked into pants giving a similar look. Good eye on that. Smile And the bloodstripe detail too. It looks like you have the differences in the vests too- Raddus has that quilted yoke bit, and the others look like they are plain. It does look like there is a partial back seam on the vest, but I think that's the kind of detail that is usually optional- I know we don't require it for Ackbar, just recommend.

The pants portion has the same padding and topstitching around the knee combined with the R1 cargo pockets that you see on Raddus, Draven, etc. You can see the poofy silhouette above the knee in the full length shots and the padding and pocket in the seated pictures. The boots we also can see are the version with the ankle cuffs.

Just as a note, for costume approval we have to stick with the reference sources laid out in the charter.
