Hello ! I'm french and a great fan of Star wars. I went to the french comic con and met the french base members of the rebel legion, and I'm interessted by join the rebel legion.
I've got the costume of Anakin skywalker of the III Episode, but I'm a girl so I wanted to know if it may be impossible for me to join you because I'm a girl who's got a men costume ?
In the forum of the french base, they told me that it can be a problem but I can be accepted as a prequel jedi...

Sometimes, its difficult to get approved as a face character e.g. when you're a blonde-haired Scandinavian with a mustache and want to get approved as Mace Windu. Or when you're a black-skinned girl with rasta hair who wants to be Obi-Wan Kenobi. That's ... well, difficult. ^^

In general, however, nobody can deny you being part of the Legion just for being a girl/guy, having a specific hair color or whatever. For example, the 501st has Stormtroopers with height from 1.50 to 2.00 meters. Wink

And as for your Anakin: Even when Anakin don't get approved, you can always go as a Generic Old Republic Jedi. There's no problem. But I'm curoius. Do you have any pictures of your costume you could show us? Pleeeaaasssseee? Very Happy

Fortunately, I'm not a blonde-haired Scandinavian, or a black-skinned girl ! lol But thanks for your informations, when I'll have finished my costume, I'll show you some pictures before trying to get approved Wink

For the moment, here is a picture of me in the french comic con event, with my favorite master : Yoda ! Smile



So, what do you think about it ?

The different Anakin standards can be found here:http://www.rebellegion.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=8970

I have copied and pasted the EpIII below.

Anakin Skywalker (Episode III: Revenge of the Sith)
Required Items:
Textured deep to dark brown outer tunic with shoulder tucks, obi (sash), cloth tabbards underlaying outer dark brown leather/pleather tabbards
Brown textured inner tunic
Knee length dark brown boots with spats and three straps on each leg.
Brown pants, lighter than tunic preferred.
Brown Jedi Utility belt with side release buckle
2 sets of 4 Jedi Capsules
1 scored leather pouch
1 ribbed pouch
1 new style oval pouch
1 covertec clip
Anakin's Lightsaber (Revenge of the Sith version)
Brown Glove/Gauntlet With three buckles and straps around each puffy section.
Medium-length hair, parted to the left (natural or synthetic wig is acceptable)
Long vertical scar on the right side of the face

Formal Requirements: You must have at least one of the following items to be accepted:
ROTS Hero Hilt
Outer dark brown robe
Brown Leather Glove
Food pellets in the correct colors: 2 gold, 2 copper, 2 silver, 2 gunmetal

Costume Resources:
Son of the Suns Revenge of the Sith Anakin Tutorial

So...the tabards are suppose to be brown, but someone on here said they started out with black tabards and used brown shoe polish (I believe that's what it was) to get it to a dark brown.

Ah okay, because I've seen a lot of people in Anakin's costume with black tabards so I thought that black tabards were right ...
I'm totally confused ! Rolling Eyes

Its very hard at first to see that his tabs are brown, not black. But his are in fact brown. Lots of costumers do anakin type costumes that aren't exact replicas so they wear black. But an approved formal Anakin must be brown

Anakin never had black tabards in Episode 2 or 3. This has been well established. Many of us, me included, have seen the real costumes in person.

There are scenes where his tabards might look black, but they are not.

You will never see anything but brown tabards on a Rebel Legion approved Anakin.

Any costumes you see with black are on people doing it for fun, or those who are not properly informed.

That's a common problem. Many Jedi costumes are made out of brown material. But often, it's a brown that can easily be thought as black. When you see Episode III, many scenes are in dimly light or dark rooms. Every dark brown tends to look black.

Its the same with my Starkiller costume. Technically (and officially) its brown in color - although a dirtied/bloodied/smugded/used brown that nearly looks black. But on nearly all cut scenes during the game, it looks black. And even the comic shows his robes all-black. But they're brown. ... It's often difficult to tell. :S

For the best info in the world on Anakin Skywalker Costumes from Ep1, EP2, Ep3 and Clone Wars you should go to Sons of the Suns. Everyone there was helpful with my Anakin and the information is overloading at times. http://www.sonsofthesuns.com/forum/
