Hi all

I have changed the t-shirt to a tan one, made my gators and distressed them on advice I have removed the water bottle and changed the blaster to an E11. What do you think?

I don't think the tea staining made the gaiters dark enough and they probably need to be dyed tan.

Also, your shirt does not really look tan?
Is the color off in the photos?
To me it looks like olive drab....

Thanks for comments. Yes, the tshirt is tan, below is the link to the ebay item I purchased, must be my camera/lighting.

I will post another picture of the gaitors shortly as they have now been darkened/distrssed to make them more tan.

Thanks

Duncan

bummer...
cuz the standard calls for a long sleeved t-shirt...
and that is a short sleeved shirt.



here is the costume standard for the Endor Commando:


Endor Commando/Endor Rebel Soldier/Endor Trooper

Required Items:



Cargo style pants (commercial BDU in rip stop or twill is acceptable-no sewing modifications needed) spray painted in a camouflage pattern

A NOTE REGARDING CAMO FOR ALL PIECES CALLING FOR CAMOUFLAGE:
Suggested paint colors below are "Design Master Corp" paint designations, an equivalent is acceptable

- Moss Green (heavy)
- Holiday Green (light)
- Hunter Green (light)
- Basil (heavy...primary color)
- Bright Olive - (small accents)


A beige/tan/sand colored long sleeve t-shirt


Boots- “Desert” style combat or hiking boots. Canvas/Natural upper Target Color: “Sand” FS 33531/RAL 1011 “Brown Beige”; Molded sole, with thick “lug” tread. The sole continues up over the front ½”/12mm of the toe. The original “Sierra” brand boots are long out of production; however there are Israeli Scout Commando Boots that are very close in design and can be either purchased or used as a reference.


Gaiters - A tube of heavy Cotton/Natural fabric starting from the bridge of the foot (covering most of the laces) continuing up past the boot top to slightly below mid-calf. 5-8 sets of eyelets (depending on your measurements). No clear photos of the laces have been found yet; most likely surplus olive-green “para-cord” was used. Color: The originals appear to have been made from a tan or sand material, but were so heavily dyed and painted to appear used they look dark brown or olive when actually seen on screen.


Helmet consisting of an AN-H-15 cloth helmet (or replica) with a ribbed strip on the top, a replica rigid outer ring, and cloth bill


Olive Drab Belt with pouches


Short, light-colored leather work gloves

The following combinations are acceptable for formal for the upper torso in addition to the tan long sleeved shirt:


A camo painted trenchcoat - camo paint should be applied to a tan trenchcoat, if tan trenchcoat/lab coat can not be obtained, you will have to dye trenchcoat/labcoat tan first and then camo paint.


A camo painted snow jacket - camo paint must be applied to a tan base. Since snow jackets are by nature white in color, you must dye jacket tan first.


Accurate capped sleeve vest with slash pockets and padded applique on right upper chest.


Accurate capped sleeve vest with slash pockets and padded applique on right upper chest worn over a camo painted snow jacket.


Formal Requirements - choose one:


(Unless local laws prohibit or strongly discourage carrying anything that looks like a firearm)

1. E-11
2. DH-17
3. Endor rifle


Optional Items:

1. Web bandolier with replica accessories
2. Canvas military-style backpack-no nylon packs-screen accurate is two pocket pack.
3. Endor hardpack
4. Vest accessories such as rank badges and wrist comm.

looks good....

tell you what...

I am going to deny your current application...
then...

when you get the new shirt..
and now that you dyed your gaiters a darker color...

just take some new photos and start with a new application...
that way your costume will be correctly shown.

Sounds like a plan...
make sure to take high res photos...
especially the one you want photoshopped for your profile photo..

include a few close ups of things like your boots and gaiters...
and probably the pouches on the belt..
probably would also be a good idea to take a photo so the long sleeved t-shirt can be seen too...


will look for a new application in the near future...

Very Happy
