I also agree this seems a bit small. I think most of the folks in the FB build group were settling on 5/8" (possibly 3/4"). I think including that it should be proportional to the wearer, and in the 1/2" to 3/4" range might work.

I think “proportional to the wearer” would be the best way to put this. My straps are no bigger than 1/2” (maybe a bit smaller) but I am a tiny person so anything bigger takes up the entire front of my top and looks ridiculous. Someone taller/bigger than me would look silly with small straps.

I believe someone on the set said in the Cara Dune FB build group that it is a thick, hard rubberized material, not vinyl or leather wrapped. I'm not sure it's confirmed exactly what it is. That doesn't sound like Sintra to me, and I for one am not excited to have a hard stabby thing sticking up around my neck.

This. When I read the description from said person, it sure sounded like a layperson's description of foam to me.

I started with 3/4" and went to 1/2", but 5/8" is closest to right, I think. You can use the PLS fabric design to tell this. But truly, proportional to wearer is the right call. Everyone's torso is different. I think the 3/4" looked better, but I ran out of real estate and had to cut my top shorter because I needed more of a gap between the trousers and the top. So I had to go down. I wanted to do 5/8", but couldn't get them on time for when I wanted to finish.

Insanely detailed indeed. I will read over later and try to give feedback.

There is this for the pants:

"Optional but preferred: These panels should be in a similar teal to the pants".

I am not sure what this is referring to? The center panels are teal with the outer being black so perhaps remove this and/or reword it to specify what it is talking about? Reading it right now, it seemed redundant?



I hope it's okay to chime in!

I think it's referring to the fact the outer panels are not actually black but a teal color pretty close to the pants. The ink on the panels makes them overall appear black from a distance but you can see the difference between the panels and the waistband in closeups.

Had a chance to read this through and jot down a couple thoughts. Overall I love the detail and specificity, and the great photos, which will really help people with this complex build.

"Required Details
- The upper body armor should be made from a black stretch material with the following details:"

I think maybe this should be "vest" or some other word? It isn't really armor.

"Centered on these webbing pieces are metal-like bars that alternate raised silver & dark teal pieces."

Perhaps mention that there are are three segments on the bars, the center one teal and the outer ones silver? If you didn't look at the picture, the description isn't super clear.

"- Collar is made from a hard material"

Maybe "hard / rubberized"? (Sorry, just gonna fight on this one. LOL)

- The wearer’s right boot has a ridged(?) black leather-like strip down the outside

I have seen it laser cut. I don't think it's ridged, exactly, but rather has cut-outs?

As to the knife, would it be passable to have the handle with as much of a blade stub as was needed to anchor in the holster? I would like to have it but foresee problems bringing a 3-D printed knife anywhere with security screening. The knife I had printed was still very sharp and fairly sturdy -- just don't see it getting into a convention or libraries / schools necessarily being comfortable with it.

Both arms have are pieces that are painted teal and moderately-to-heavily weathered.

Armor?

In the hair section, I think it mentions the teal fabric woven through the braid twice?

Really comprehensive draft standard for a very complicated costume!

I agree on fighting the collar. It's not hard. I truly think it's foam. Or perhaps rubber.

I also agree on the boot strip. It has cut outs.

Really appreciate the feedback and the catches. Hoping to submit this before the end of the month.

Changes in red!

Regarding the knife, reworded it to make the blade optional (?? is that weird?) and toned it down to accept "appearance of metal" vs literal metal.

"Spacing of webbing should be in proportion to the wearer."

I would word it something like "spacing and size of webbing should be proportional to the wearer, generally 1/2" to 3/4" or something like that.

And as for the knife, I don't think the handle must be wood. I would say "wood or wood-appearing" or something. Most are 3D printing the knife handle and then painting it to look like wood, which I think is fine.

"Centered on the webbing are three metal or metal like bars. " I think if it looks close enough, you're fine. Specifying metal may be an issue.

Are we sure the undershirt is jersey? I say we reword that to a stretch, matte knit fabric. That will cover the bases as needed and give a little more flexibility to people.

In regards to the pants, I believe we need to say they should match as close as possible to the color of the armor. Also on the pants, there is an optional phrase saying "raised patterns should be achieved...". This should be clarified. The pants and tunic material are the same so the description should state that.

Armor says it should be painted accurate black and teal. Where is it black? There is definitely teal but I haven't seen any black unless I truly missed something? The glove attached pieces are a muted teal/silver/gray color but I wouldn't call them black. What is this in reference to, please?

Wording on placement of thigh piece is inconsistent. There is no way a piece can be under the bottom of the buttock and on top of their knee. I think this may be mixing up the knee and thigh pieces together so may want to word it differently? The kneepad should cover the knee and just hit the top of the boot on the right leg. The thigh piece starts under the buttock on the upper thigh and carries over onto the front of the leg and stops at basically the piping between the black and teal sections. Not sure if I worded it the best but you get what I mean.

Optional armband should state it should be worn on the bicep of the right arm of the wearer.

Knife handle being wood should not be required, in my opinion. Many are 3D printing this as we haven't quite sourced the correct knife so leaving it open to the costumer might be a good idea.

One final note. The main color scheme is teal. Teal armor/ teal pant panels, teal colored glove attachments, teal hair ribbon. I don't know how to word it but that needs to be consistent.

We are close to having this ready!

I was recently shown this photo of the back of the costume, taken at D23.

back of leg by SumTotal, on Flickr

I'm kind of wondering about the strap for the knee armor. It almost looks more like a leather or rubber material that closes with hooks or snaps?

Same source is where I determined that I firmly think it's elastic.

But in that pic you showed, yes, there's a latch of some sort there.

Honestly, this is where I start drawing the line of "it doesn't matter." I'm a very picky costumer. I try my best to make everything as accurately as possible. But you'll note that most of my posts here allow some leeway - ie, proportional to wearer, wood-like, etc. Because it does not matter if this strap is made of elastic or leather or vinyl, as long as it looks the part. It does not matter if there is a small silver hook in the back or not. Not for approval. No one can see this, and the general public simply doesn't care. We need details, yes. But we don't need to require every single one for every single costume. If the costume looks good and is visually accurate, it should be approved. So, the standard should allow for this. I do think this strap is elastic as displayed at D23. Of course, the kneepad is also upside down at D23, so things must be taken with a grain of salt. And if a costumer makes theirs out of leather, that's fine. It'll look just as good. And that's all that matters.

I'm not sure that's helpful for the standard writing, but that's my two cents on this type of thing. I'd be all for "knee pad should attach with a black, approximately 2" wide strap of elastic or leather fastened in the back of the knee by velcro, hook and eye, or similar." But I guess that can be too vague, as some folks need implicit instruction? I dunno. I'm rambling a bit.
