Royal Rebel CND did an awesome job getting this standard started. I made a few edits to allow for a slightly wider range of materials, but otherwise it looks fantastic. Since we don't know exactly what the fabrics are in a drawn medium, we want to leave a little room for interpretation.

I also had to remove most of the precise measurements for more relative terms, because the LMO has asked us to minimize the use of measurements in standards.

I also think that the capelet is perfectly reasonable optional item, because it appears in several panels. Because comics are often inconsistent, it's good to allow for all of the different variations from panel to panel.

As to a conaice name for the costume, what do you all think of "General Leia Organa (Cato Neimoidia)"?

Another question would be whether this costume should be initially approved under the Royalty/Senatorial category or the Officers category. It seems that Leia is using her dignitary status to get into Cato Neimoidia, in order to command a Resistance operation. The outfit definitely suggests dignitary more than commander.

I'll try to get my hands on a physical copy of this comic so that I can get some good high-res scans of these images

Not currently commenting on the standard text itself, but I do like the name. And I agree that the costume does have a distinct R&S feel. Smile

In that case, I think this is ready to go to the LMO team for review.
