This is our Lando, from Puerto Rico Base, recently approved Very Happy





Now THAT dragon frabric really does the trick.

I'm searching high and low with every supplier of fabrics for it. As soon as I find it. I'll buy the whole roll, to have it available for anyone interested in buying this fabric, to make or upgrade their Lando's costume.

So I spent some time with my wife looking at the standards and this is what we came up with for a compromise.

Let me know what you think...

Lando Calrissian (Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, Bespin)
Required Items:
  1. Tailored-fit shirt with long full sleeves of a medium blue matte fabric. The sleeves are gathered to narrow cuffs, with a narrow band collar and placket of a black or dark ink blue leather or pleather.
  2. Tailored plain-front pants of a dark navy matte fabric.
  3. Wide belt with narrow trapezoidal sections of a black or dark ink blue leather or pleather. The central section, or “buckle”, of the belt has an embossed Art Deco-like zig-zag pattern.
  4. Low-heeled, plain, tailored ankle or mid-calf boots in a black or dark ink blue leather or pleather.
  5. Full circle cape of a medium blue matte fabric, lined in a burnished gold Asian brocade in a dense “dragon” pattern, with a wide fold-over collar of a black or dark ink blue leather or pleather. The cape should end below the knees.
  6. Wrist communicator consisting of a thick square silver face with red, silver and black button details attached to a plain black band. The communicator is worn with the silver face on the inside of the wrist.

Feel free to edit the changes you would like to see Ineabelle... I figured you have probably done the most research on the costume, you should have the best insight on it.

Based on what you have written, we can then talk about it... then send it off to the standards committee for final tweaks.

Good work so far!








Good team work indeed, so know that I'm back from CVI and rested enough, it's back to work on this one.

So, do we make the communicator required then?

It would be good to have reference pictures to back up every detail of this costume, if anyone has good exhibit pics, please!! add them here. Let's build the best library of reference pics, etc. for our costumes.

My opinion is that if it is part of the costume, it should be required. I've not been able to do the research but if it is correct that Lando always has the wrist communicator on, then it should be a requirement.

One small change to your amendments - Lando's pants are pocketless and this should be in the requirements both to promote accuracy and educate members when building the costume (I didn't know Han pants had a pin tuck until I read the requirements and I'm glad that was in there so I could make sure I had the accuracy I wanted). So I think the line should be:
"Tailored plain-front pocketless pants of a dark navy matte fabric."

Adding pictures to the standards would be great and I think needs to be done for all costumes. There's no reason why we can't update the written standards first then add the pictures later though.

When you are happy with the amendments, I'll post them on the standards committee forums for review and sign off from our DCO, the LMO, etc.

Thanks and well done everyone for all the work and effort.

Guys do we all agree on this?
Made the last adjustment to the pants and wristcomm as pointed out by theeviltwin.

I guess this one's ready for revision.

For all of this statements, I can/will provide visual guide as part of Source gallery on our DB94 site Wink ... http://db94.rebellegion.com/?cat=11 ... in few days ...
