This sentence from the standards got me thinking:
Quote:
1. Painting: Republic logo on the lower arm armour, jedi order symbol, or any symbol.

Any other? That could be the logo of my detachment or JKO or temple, right?

Pros:
+ great for representation purposes on the events
+ personal touch, binding to the detachment/JKO/temple
+ does not conflict this point of the standard

Cons:
- not canonical
- earthly symbol
- earthly letters
- much more complex/coloured than common symbols

I personally like the idea of blending RL symbol into the costume. Was this discussed before? Or will a judge come and "nay" the idea and sink it, like an X-Wing on Degobah?

Expect sinking on this one. Wink But I like the idea for more informal events. Maybe make an extra gauntlet?

Agreed. If I could have gotten two sets of armor for my Jedi General I would have.

I have had the same question as I currently build my Jedi forearm armor. I want to use the open circle fleet naval emblem.



The CRL states:

“1. Painting: Republic logo on the lower arm armour, jedi order symbol, or any symbol. Any armour parts can either be shiny white (new look), be weathered or painted like seen on references. (Example: Obi-Wan, Plo Koon, Cin Drallig, Ima-Gun Di, Saesee Tiin….)”

I think that emblem could be used as it's in universe and fits in with the era.

That is my hope and thought as well from what I have read on the Fandom history of the open circle fleet and looking at the CRL. I’ve talked with some RL costume judges and KJO admin members and the consensus is mixed but more support the open fleet symbol being “ok” to use.
