Honestly, there is no visual image showing a holster is even there. By logic, she would have a holster since that's where her blaster would go when she isn't using it. However, at no point do you see the holster. Its old video game logic, no evidence of where weapons go when you aren't using them.

In the box art, she wears gloves, in the game, she does not. So gloves can be an option.

I personally would say no holster, since there is no image of her wearing it in the game footage.

In my opinion, based on the shared images:
1. I think the box image graphic is more clear and precise and should be the "main" reference if possible.
2. I think the sleeves/pants are the same effect as Poe's flight suit and Luke's jacket--that was my first thought seeing it before even reading the thread.
3. As for pants material, I would favour something stretchy--that's more in her character over any "jeans" type fabric.

I still stand firm on disagreeing with this. The ribbed elastic is common on flight suits/flight jackets, but Mara is clearly wearing a jacket in the vein of Han Solo's ESB or Luke's ceremonial jacket. Not a flight suit or flight jacket. So the detailing would likely be a line of box pleats or top stitched. It should also be noted the same format is done around the bottom edge of the jacket, which I've never seen any jacket with the ribbed elastic in that way.

Hi

I have been working on researching this costume for a while.

My input is that i seen the jacket looking a bit more like this edit that was done for an old incomplete mod - https://www.moddb.com/mods/mysteries-of-the-sith-jka-modification/images/mara-jade-wip

Which as you can see if box like, like blood stripes but closer together and not like a pilot would have them.
Also i agree with the above image about the belt buckle shape but i believe from other images that it has a inner section of the same shape, i cannot tell if its just an etching or if it is indented

Also the lightsaber used in this is not her normal saber but one that was designed for MOTS:

I would also add that I think the shirt is less of a tank top and is actually based off Lukes ROTJ black tunic (i think Han wears that type too at some point). In that it is one piece of fabric crossed over the other (you can see where there is definitely a line running at an angle down over her chest in many of the images)


Regarding the cyndrical item at the back of her belt...I am just wondering if they actually based the belt a lot off Han's and therefore it isnt a cylinder but actually the rear buckle?

For in game, absolutely. On the box art, she's in a tank top. Which adds to the 'box art vs in game' differences.

I would agree its likely a back buckle (which would allow her the Y-drop holster for her blaster, even if video game logic all weapons "vanish" when not in use).
