Howdy all. I attended ConNooga in Chattanooga TN this passed weekend and thanks to a really cool Rey cosplayer and a really good photographer I have some pictures of my TFA Luke Skywalker costume.

I have a few tweaks to get it completely accurate, but the people at the Con seemed to dig it. Let me know what you think.

Thank you! We had a lot of fun posing in our getups.

Your Luke is so spot on, it's eerie. Very Happy Phenomenal job. I had a ton of fun! *I don't know how easy it is to see in the photos, but his robotic hand was painted and detailed beautifully. I have the pictures of Rey giving the Saber to Luke, and I'm shopping them onto pictures I have of Michael Skellig. Ill tab you as soon as I finish them. :-)

Jon, the Force is definitely strong with you! Very Happy

I have done a little digging in the "Luke" Jedi forums, and as suspected, the standards are not yet written until the Blu-ray is released and the costume judges can get some screen caps.

In the meantime, there are several discussion threads that might interest you. I hope you'll consider starting your own WIP ("work in progress") thread and sharing your awesome photos from ConNooga. Smile

Is there a way to validate my robe by RL judges as it is not in the reference list ?


if you want to submit a costume for which there is no 'reference list' then you must include your own reference photos. you need at least 3 references. they should include head-to-toe photos from at least 3 angles (front/back/side), so the judges know what you're basing your information on.

unfortunately there are no reference photos for this costume -- you may need to wait until the blu-ray is released.

(spoiler: the movie shows this costume from all angles). Wink

Yes, Stephanie is right.... you can write the standard. You will have to lay out your reasoning for your choices and provide the screen shots, but you can do that.

*Maybe* we'll get some "extra features" in the Blu-ray that will give us some more source material.

Please do start a WIP in the Luke forum. If you have any progress pics from construction, it would be a great place to post them. Smile

I appreciate yall's help with this. I reckon I need to update an old adage: The Rebel Legion helps those who help themselves. Laughing

I'll get started putting together a WIP from my construction pics, and see if I can't push this thing a little in my direction.

Thank you both again!

Please don't feel like you *have* to write the standards.... It's just an option to (hopefully) get things moving and get you "approved" more quickly. "New" standards can sometimes take a while to get moving.

Can't wait to see your pictures. Very Happy

BTW, if you want to show images, use the img buttons at the top of the posting window. These would be linked from a photo hosting site (e.g., Photobucket) where the file/photo name ends in .jpg

No ma'am. I don't feel that way at all. I look forward to getting everything together in a WIP and seeing where it goes.

Thanks for your help. I know it's a process. Smile
