Costuming Standards


1. Outer tunic (OT): a. Sleeved. Sleeves
should hang at least to the knuckles when
the arms are held down at the side.
b. No Kimonos’s, karate/judo gi or gi like
construction allowed.
c. OTs may be sleeveless as long as an
Inner Tunic (IT) is worn and is long
sleeved. No bare-armed Generic Jedi.
d. Sleeveless outer tunics may be
fastened at the front and have an attached
hood (recommended), though a hood is
not compulsory. No vests, or sleeveless V-
neck type sweaters may be worn as a
sleeveless OT. A sleeveless OT should be
surcoat or standard OT style in length. (Ki
Adi Mundi and Sarrissa Jeng are examples
of surcoat style OT’s.)
e. Tabards should not be worn with Ki Adi
Mundi style OT or surcoat. Tabards are
required with the standard OT style.
f. OT’s should have a collar approximately
1 inch to 2 inches wide.
g. OTs overall length may be variable and
may extend to the floor. OTs are generally
made in a fashion where there is a full
skirt (attached to the main body of the
OT) where the seam is hidden by the obi.
2. Tabards: Must extend at least to or past
the bottom hem of the OT on the front.
The back tabards may end under the obi
or may extend to (or past) the bottom
hem of the OT (or may be the same
length as the front tabards). This guideline
is obviously for the more traditional length
OTs. For OTs that are longer (past the
knee or to the floor or where a full length
skirt is worn), the tabard length would be
more variable.
a. Tabard construction should be such that
the front tabards do not overlap. This is
often accomplished by constructing the
tabards in a “Y” formation where any
seam joining the tabard below the obi to
the tabard above the obi is covered by the
obi. Tabards may cross in the back.
Tabards may be sewn together in the
b. Scarf-style tabards, having an around-
the-neck design, are permitted.
c. A single front tabard, centrally located
(covering the crotch area) is permitted.
d. The end of the front tabard(s) may
have a variable design (square, rounded,
triangular, octagonal, etc.)
e. Tabards may have borders and/or
varying decorative symbols or other
decorations (such as Aurebesh, etc.). The
decorations/designs should not obviously
be from an Earth-bound period or culture
(Renaissance, Celtic, Asian, tribal, etc.)
f. Leather or pleather tabards are
g. Tabard width should generally be from
the seam at the collar of the OT to the
edge of the shoulder and be a similar
width as the obi. A general width to use
would be 5 inches to 6 inches wide
(depending on one’s height and build).
Common sense should be used in
selecting Tabard width, and the width
should be proportional to the costumer’s
h. Kataginu are not permitted.
3. Obi (Sash): The obi wraps around the
waist, and should be approximately three
times the width of the belt and/or of a
similar width as the tabards.
a. Obi closures (Velcro, snaps, etc.)
should not be visible.
b. Leather or pleather Obi are permitted.
c. Obi may have borders.
4. Jedi Belt: Black or Brown Utility Belt (all
belts should be proportional to wearer):
* Style A: Similar to Prequel Jedi belts:
Wide leather main (inner, against the Obi)
belt with a thinner secondary belt (outer)
on top of the main belt, and a movie-style
or similar buckle on the secondary belt.
a. Thinner secondary belt cannot be loose
or “sag”.
b. Button studs should be used to help
anchor the outer/thinner belt to the
inner/wider belt. Generally, 8, eight button
studs (screw posts or Chicago Screws,
preferred) are used. Sam Browne button
studs are permitted. The metal of the
studs should match the metal of the
* Style B: Similar to Original Trilogy (Luke
and Old Ben) belts: Singular wide leather
belt with a rectangular, octagonal or oval
unadorned buckle.
a. Belts are generally two inches to two
and a half inches wide, but the width
should be in proportion to the wearer.
Very tall or large costumers may need a
wider belt. Very short people may need a
narrower belt.
b. Belt closures (Velcro, snaps, etc.)
should not be visible.
c. No Earth-bound buckles or buckles that
obviously belong to an Earth-bound
period, culture or to other sci-fi/fantasy
d. Belt and boots should match (be of a
complimentary color), i.e., black and black
or brown and brown. No black/brown
5. Lightsaber: (No toy sabers, no Ultimate
FX short saber). The lightsaber may be a
static prop (hilt-only). Attached blade(s),
LED lights, and sound effects, are allowed
but not required.
a. Metal hilt lightsabers are preferred,
though custom lightsabers constructed of
other materials are permitted.
b. Blade colors accepted are: blue, green,
yellow, orange, white and violet. No red,
pink or black blades.
c. Double-blade sabers are allowed.
6. Lightsaber Clip: Covertec or similar
style lightsaber clip OR a hook/clip for
lightsaber on belt.
a. For the “hook/clip” type of lightsaber
attachment, the lightsaber (itself) will
likely have a D-ring (similar to the
connection system for the armored Darth
Vader and Old Ben lightsabers).
7. Pants or skirt:
a. Pants should largely be non-descript
without decoration. Traditional pants
pockets are permitted, but must not be
visible (e.g., hidden under the skirt of the

required (though can be used to cover
laces and zippers).
d. Boots and belts should match (be of a
complimentary color), i.e., black and black
or brown and brown. No black/brown
e. Buckles are permitted, but should
complement the boot and not detract from
the overall look of the Jedi costume.
f. Low-heeled 1 – 1 1/2 inches maximum.
Spike heels are not permitted.
9. No visible t-shirts.
10. Permitted Colors for Outer Tunics,
Inner Tunics, Tabards, Obi, Pants and
Robes/Cloaks(capes): Earth tone colors,
preferably shades of brown, gray, black
and white. Other earth tones are allowed
(greens, blues, yellows, violets and reds
(where the reds are darker and in the
burgundy family), but should be muted.
No bright or loud (sharp) colors are
allowed (examples would include: red,
pink, neon green, etc.). Combinations of
red and black are not allowed, as they are
considered Sith colors. Colors of the
Generic Jedi costume may be mixed and
matched (except for the belt and boots).
Legion Costume Judges are the final
authority on color. If in doubt, contact a
Legion Costume Judge for an opinion on
proposed color combinations before
You must have at least three items from

canon robes/cloaks, in the same color

a. A hooded cape with side splits similar in
construction that worn by Anakin in Attack
of the Clones, is permitted.
b. The hood should be large enough so
that (1) when the hood is up, the sides of
the hood drape to extend to or cover the
shoulders and (2) when down, the tip of
the hood should fall near the small of the
back (or lower).
c. The sleeves should be full and flare
