I have a Vader costume and was looking at the cover to Dark Empire & noticed that he is wearing a Vader type body suit. I think it would be a fun costume to do, but would the RL accept it? I doubt the 501st would since it's Luke, but that's when he is sort of the clone Emperor's apprentice.

Thoughts or opinions for this?

The DE Luke is a kind of costume like the Legacy comic ones: Difficult. Luke is very twisted in Dark Empire and its difficult to say if he's allowed in RL or 501st.
I would say: Both are possible. During some stages of DE Luke's formally Palpatine's Sith Apprentice while during other stages, he's (again) part of the Alliance.

But don't take my words for credit. It's just a personal view on this.

I'm making the costume either way since I'm not one to be jumping through hoops to join any costume club. Was just wondering the RL opinion on it and if anyone had done it before.

I think your right though. I would consider him mostly good in it since he reveals to Leia that he is basically undercover.

Since he's Luke Skywalker (sic!) the costume would surely be accepted by the Rebel Legion. The 501st Legion has sometimes really tight standards for who is "a bad guy" and would accepted into the 501st. But I think, the whole universe must make a jump up until a Luke Skywalker wouldn't be accepted into the RL (of course, when you have the three references of this particular costume which you have with the Dark Empire Luke.

For everyone not knowing what costume is meant. This one:

This has been discussed previously, and it is not approvable as a RL costume because at this point, Luke has become apprentice to the Clone Emperor.

See David for more specific Luke costume questions. http://www.rebellegion.com/forum/profile.php?mode=viewprofile&u=3976

Well like I said I'm not doing this for RL membership, more of just trying to see if it's been done before

Im sure it has been done before. But you wont find any approved RL members with it. There might have been some members who have it as a costume that they wear around.

This is also the costume that Luke wears when he makes his first trip Ossus in DE II where he's rebuilding the Jedi Order so I don't see why it couldn't but a RL costume.

Agreed, I view Luke as "Darkside" at this point, perhaps it could be argued for 501st membership as he was serving the Clone Emperor, but definitely not RL IMHO Wink

Good point. Otherwise, Kyle Katarn's outfit would be dark side too since he's shortly falls to the DS during the events of "Jedi Knight - Mysteries of the Sith".

But I don't want to start a discussion about this topic here. The RL has made statement to this costume some time ago and we should stick to it. Also, Bes'kad said he don't want to make the costume for the RL but for himself. So there's no need for any discussion yet. Wink

I think its a fantastic costume to do, Very Happy
i was actually thinking of making a 'darkside-concept anakin' costume as it has been produced for the Legacy collection.
the DE luke costume reminds me of that...
