Hi All

We have a member interested in building an Orrimaarko costume. Assuming for the time being that he should belong to RAID, since he and his fellow Dressellians appear to be part of the formal Alliance military.

Have a question about the hands. The member is intending to use ERT style gloves, since this is how the costume is displayed in the OT Costumes book:





The movie/behind the scenes refs show all three Dressellians having latex "hands" with long fingernails:







Could detachment heads/judges give us a steer here please?

Legion Charter: Article II: Costuming Standards
Quote:

The Rebel Legion celebrates creating, owning, and wearing the costumes of the Hero, Rebel and Republic forces as featured in any of the Star Wars films, the Expanded Universe (EU), un-used conceptual art for the films, comics, books, games, and television shows based on the licensed LFL Star Wars saga material.


Essentially, if you can show published photos with sufficient detail, it's likely it can be approved.

When I was DL we had this come up as well, especially in regards to helmeted aliens. Likely the original hands were lost over time and gloves were used for filing out the costume for the photoshoot.
Coming back down to set vs film, both agree. I would love to see more aliens in the ranks.

Brilliant, thanks for your replies guys.

I agree and I'm kind of ambivalent on this, although I'd probably opt for the latex "hands" if I were to have a go at this costume.

Happy either way though, just wanted to get a steer on whether our member should proceed with gloves. I'll advise him it should be fine.

They look like the same gloves as standard ERT so I guess that's the style to opt for.

Once again, really appreciate your input here cheers
