Okay I understand that in order to be considered for membership in the Rebel Legion one has to have a formal costume first! Since my character is a Corellian.

I need a screen capture of the final scene on Yavin after Han, Luke and Chewie have recieved their medals (It shows Han in formal attire). This way I can create the costume for myself! If anyone has a shot of this I would greatly appreciate it!!!

Thanks guys! Sand Dancer sent me the perfect picture and I was kind of fuzzy on the final scene. Do you think I could get away with an UnderArmor top for Han's shirt?
Did women get the chance to earn the right to wear the blood stripe or was that merely a guy thing? I am not certain on that point. Any suggestions???

Lest this sound like a stupid question... What's a "Back riding seam"? Keep in mind I don't sew period! so all this is totally foreign to me!
Again I am still questioning whether female Correllians were allowed to wear the blood stripe. What is the significance of it? Didnt really get into the whole Han Solo Myth until just recently!
Thanx

Eris

BTW What was the name (Jedi & real) name of the guy who was doing the Lightsaber show as "Jedi Spike of ..." ? Didnt catch the rest of the character's name due to my niece squealing in my ear. Laughing

Spike was played by our own Josh. AKA Blazshtaliar.

I was Jedi Master Silas Task, master to Isa who was played by Nicole. AKA Vega Wolf.

Here's some of the show.

Yup that was me! My name is Josh. The name for my jedi that i usually use is Blaz-Shtaliar (same as my username). But for this little show i decided to change it to "Spike"...or Spike-iahar" (spikey hair) just because i wanted the character to feel like a punky rebellious teenager. Since he was a padawan, and just really wanted to show off his lightsaber skills. Cool

A riding seam is one that is used on riding pants. The seam is more to the outside (or center) of your leg, rather than the inside.

Josh : You dont understand how long after the show it took me to get my hearing back!!! My niece every time you moved she squealed!!! Rolling Eyes Followed by grabbing my arm and telling me how cute you are!!! I think you have a fan! But she is 10 even though she is as tall as I am. She was the one with the white hair! Next time she's back in town I'll let you know so you can steer clear Laughing ! Although to a certain degree I gotta admit she does have good taste! Embarassed You won't remember that last statement! mindtrick Laughing

My thanks Lord Parsec! I did find a couple of images of her on Wookiepedia. But I am still wondering what you would consider a standard for her costume? Of course that would mean a white wig! Anything else?


Thanx again

Eris

For Winter, you need to pick an established costume that she wears.

It has to be seen in 3 or more sources.

My mother, WinterOne on the boards, has done Winter in her Pilot Dress Uniform. The uniform is well established and Winter is shown wearing it in the comic "Mandatory Retirement".

Winter also wears an X-Wing Flight suit.

Beyond that, you'd have to do some research.

She wears an outfit with a long brown coat in several sources.
She also wears a sleeveless purple dress in at least 2.

You would need to find pictures or text from 3 different sources to submit her purple dress, her brown coat outfit or any other Winter costume you wanted to submit.

If you are looking for characters with white hair, you can also check out "Handmaiden" from KOTOR II, Jocasta Nu, Kreia from KOTOR II, A Ferroan Female, or Tionne.

And, yes, female Corellians can wear Bloodstripes. They are very hard to get and very rare on Corellia. If you do them, you probably want to do the gold ones. The red ones are generally only given posthumously. Han is one of the few people in the history of Corellia to receive the red ones while living. Corellians can be shot on sight for wearing either Bloodstripe if they haven't earned it.

Wow Thanks ! Thats a lot of information in one shot! I'll see what I can do. It entirely depends on my finances as to which costume I do! Thanx for your input!
