Hey there! So excited that this standard is happening. I've actually been planning a Clone Wars Shaak Ti build, so this will be monumentally helpful!

I just have a few thoughts/questions. And please forgive my ignorance on the process; this is the first time I'll be weighing in on something like this. I know this must have been an extraordinary amount of work to put together! Smile

Re: Robe
Quote:
There is a smaller portion of the hood present that trails down the robe to end at the same length of the rear lekku.
This part of the hood rests under the larger, wider portion, and should follow the overall shape of the rear lekku.


- I was hoping for some clarification about that portion of the robe. To my eyes, in the reference image, it looks as if the hood of the robe is simply "folded" on itself in the picture. I see where the idea that it's extra fabric in the shape of the lekku comes from, but to me it just looks as if the illustrator was attempting to draw the folds of the hood. From a straight view of the back of her robe, there is no additional flap of fabric, it's simply the hood.




Re: Undersuit, Arm Sleeves, Boots

- Will any/all of these items be removed from the standard, or listed as an "optional" item considering the coverage of the costume (long skirt, long robe, long sleeves).

- Provided the fabric of the robe is sufficiently thick/opaque, having the sleeves seems redundant, as they will never be seen while the robe is worn.

- Same with a full undersuit. Instead, it would seem like a tank top with the appropriate squared neckline should suffice, as the skirt would cover the legs of the undersuit.

- Having tall boots that end "just below the knee" seems like a lot considering the skirt is long and should cover all evidence of them. Having black lace boots (doc martens, etc) that end at the ankle would be sufficient in my mind. (especially since the skirt standard states that the boots shouldn't be visible at all while the wearer is standing)

Re: Lightsaber
- Will the accurate hilt be optional, as it is with many of the Jedi? And the requirement mainly being that it is the correct color (blue) when lit?


Hopefully all of this makes sense. Looking forward to discussing my favorite Jedi Master! Very Happy


So to address things one at a time: I can see where you're getting a fold, I can edit it to say there are 2 pleats in the hood but hood must have a tapered shape at the bottom in order to fit the rear lekku.

Undersuit, armsleeves, and boots:
they are listed because you see the arm sleeves in one episode when her cloak slips over, same with the bottom portion of the boots, the undersuit: that's the reason I said it can be seperate pieces. Regardless: they're listed on the official 360 concept and thus are being included.

Lightsaber:
the hilt will be optional (will change) but it will be a character accurate if present.
