This revision proposal regards the Scarif Marine goggles. So far, all approved applicants have used the 1970's vintage goggles that go under the brand names Cebe 15, Loubsol Quatras, Nesco, Targa, or Texco E-103 ski goggles which are becoming quite rare. We are starting to see costume submissions using more modern ESS-style tactical goggles.

In consultation with the RAID Detachment CO, our feeling is that the goggles are a prominent part of the costume, and that the screen accurate look should be maintained. The screen-used goggles are uniquely angular and boxy.



As an aside, they were used by the filming crew of The Empire Strikes Back in Norway and may be the reason they were chosen by the Rogue One costume designers.

Following Rebel Legion guidelines, changes to the standards should be discussed publicly on the forums. Can we conveniently maintain that specific level of screen accuracy, or should we allow for substitutes?

I am aware of at least one source for replicas of the goggles and predict that more will become available if membership decides that vintage replicas should be a required element of the costume.

The proposed costume standard revision is a follows (marked in brackets):

Quote:
1. Headgear:

Variation A

Hoth-style soft cap in coyote brown or blue with replica communication device and tactical goggles. Replica communication device must be proportional to the wearer. Goggles [must be replica style and] may have clear, smoke, or yellow tinted lenses.

I think we should permit "substitutes" goggles for this costume. The original vintage goggles are rare and very expensive. We also do not have a good source for replica goggles yet. We do not know if the seller on "therpf.com" still makes them. None of us bought goggles from him yet, so we do not know how their quality is. I do not like the idea of giving a seller a monopoly or forcing applicants to either buy a replica of the google or making them wear the helmet.

I prefer the screen-accurate look as well. They're not just random goggles... they all have that particular look. (The Hoth goggles are a lot more generic looking, so you can get away with modern sources a lot easier)

That said, yeah, there has to be a tested and viable source (more likely at least 2, maybe more), or I don't know what people can do.

I found where someone had ripped the files from EA/DICE Battlefront game, which has the Scarif Marines. I have turned the goggle frames into a 3D print file and offered it on the internet. The strap mounts still could use some work but it's a start.

Great start! I wonder how well these would look printed? Have you tried?

Not yet, but I'm working on it. If someone else beats me to posting pics I'm happy to see their print.
