Has anyone seen the resistance pilot costume at Galaxy’s Edge? Anyone have any idea how close it is to being approvable?
Thanks

I haven't seen it up close but from the few pictures I've seen of it it's pretty far from accurate, unfortunately. The collar and sleeves don't have the ruffle trim and have pleats instead, the flak vest is quilted instead of ribbed and has black/dark gray straps instead of white for some reason, the flak vest is missing the hanging straps, the vest is also missing the chest plate, the chestbox looks like it's too long, the hose looks too thin, the ejection harness is too dark, the roll-pin buckles on the harness are too big, the legs have elastic at the bottom when they shouldn't, and... yeah, it's not very accurate.

It's too bad, Disney hit it out of the park with the Palpatine costume but their other costumes leave something to be desired...

Yeah the flight suit and harness seemed to be of really good quality when I saw them, I just had no idea about accuracy, thanks.

The material does look pretty good, and honestly the suit pattern seems pretty good (though granted I haven't seen any really clear pictures of the pockets to say that with any certainty), it's just that the details are way off. The suit might be a good one to modify but there's a lot of modifying to do, and the vest would have to be almost completely remade.

I assumed it would need some modifications, but $250 seemed like a pretty good deal for the flight suit depending on how much modifications where needed. The vest and the chest box are pretty much bantha poop.😂

That's a different suit. The OP is asking about the Resistance X-wing pilot costume sold at Galaxy's Edge, that's a Republic pilot outfit. Smile
