I was thinking about some different costumes to attempt doing, and after finding out that female X-wing Pilot statue is actually Jaina Solo, who my girlfriend would love doing, I've been looking at trying to do a Jacen costume. I haven't seen anything as far as formal requirements, but I know about the 3 reference rule. So here's my brief look at the outfits he's portrayed wearing, however, I haven't tried to get anymore sources for these, so no idea which would be considered formal or not.

Tan Jumpsuit

Yellow Jumpsuit

Different Yellow Jumpsuit

Grey Jumpsuit (one I've seen the most of)

Black Shirt

Black X-Wing Type Pilot

Darth Caedus (Although I assume this would be a costume for the 501st)

Anybody know which could be considered formal or anymore outfits he has? I assume the Grey and Tan jumpsuits for sure, because I've seen those a lot, but I'd love some more opinions.

The key is three, separate, correlating views of the costume. SO assembling a group of those from book covers, comics, figures, etc would be what you want to do.

Caedus is Sith, so he'd be more 501st territory. If interested, pay www.theflagshipeclipse.com a visit. There is a thread for discussion on him in the EU Character Research Discussions section.

When I was searching for 3 separate resources ... I found lot of sources and there was only issue of color -> I was not able to recognize proper color, because it was always about "lightning on photos" ... but always I seen shades between grey and brown ...

I too am trying to do a Jacen Solo costume and have had a problem with finding 3 correlating reference pics. Thanks to the release of the Essential Reader's Companion I found two more of Jacen in a gray jumpsuit.

We do take Caedus within "The Dark Empire" honestly we already have 2 so far. However, always more are welcomed.

The issue of color on the jumpsuits definitely has been a big issue I've run into. I think the tan one and the gray one are definitely separate outfits, and not different artists interpretations of the same one, as I believe the tan is the uniform worn on the Praexum, and the grey is one that he obtains later.

I would also say the yellow suits are two different interpretations of the same outfit, but they are distinct from the gay and tan ones.

Orion, is the Caedus outfit you're referring to the Galactic Alliance Guard uniform with the cape? Or a different one? I'm not familiar with which outfits come from which sources.
