I built a pink bladed saber a few years ago for my daughter:

No one ever confused it with red, or questioned why she was carrying a red-themed blade. She was 14 at the time, and really the only comments we heard were along the lines of "cool! She has a pink lightsaber!" Laughing Wink

Really guys... if the blade is clearly pink and the owner is dressed as a female Jedi in earth tones or at least clear and nice tones it's hard for ANYONE to confuse it with a Towering Hulk in Black armor and black leather and say "Hey! that's a Sith!"

I think the look of Sith and Jedi is VERY well defined in that regard. Even Plo Koon that has that sort of I could be Evil look to his design is Unmistakably a Jedi in everyone's eyes.

Besides, we already have members approved with pink blades, they have been acceptable for quite some time.

I had noticed along time ago that Vader's saber was actually pink, not red, and attributed it to the poor rotoscoping/editing technology of the time. Razz
