Just wondering, the new costume book has a great two pages on Mon Mothma's outfit from ROTJ. However, when I compared it to the standards, I noticed that in the book the costume designer clearly stated that the dress is not white but earth-tones. From the picture I would say a deep ivory or cream. Also it does say that the fabric is more of a home-spun with muslin lining and the under dress is a brown jersey. Her necklace and cording are clearly shown. These are different from the current standards. I am interested in doing this costume at some point so am wondering if the standards are going to be changed to reflect what is in the book or not or kept as is.

Thanks

There is a revision of Mon Mothma in committee right now, but it is only clarifications on the necklace (the shoulder knots are NOT pendants), the wording of the sleeve length, and the addition of "flat or very low heeled white shoes or boots. This is not approved yet, as we do not have an LMO currently in place.

Galactic Strategic Command is then concentrating its efforts on standards for celebrations scene commanders.

Feel free to check with a costume judge, but at this time neither the Costuming Standards Committee nor the GSC is involved in any other changed to Mon Mothma.

I was putting together a version 2 of my mon mothma before the book came out (with better fabric) and am now revising what I'm going to do based on the book images. I plan to put it together over Christmas break, and make the new version more aligned to the book details. I'd love for this crl to be updated as well, but I understand if it has to work its way through the queue.

It may at some point, but it's not in the cards for now. Any costumes approved under the current standards won't ever be 'unapproved'.

You should check with the LCJ to see if your version is acceptable.

I am confused by the picture shown on page 156. The overdress falls only to the knee, while costumestandard states it should be floor length. Is the dress shown in this picture an early draft of the actual costume?

The costume standard is being revised to reflect what is shown in the book.

The original standard was written based on screen captures, and we really don't see her standing anywhere that she's not behind something! I have one screen cap where you can just see the bottom of her over tunic, and I really had to look for it to notice.

The new standards being discussed by the GSC now, and after that discussion period it will go back to the standards committee for approval.
