I asked this question in another thread, but I figured I'd start it's own thread, since there are one or two out there looking to do this if I recall correctly.

Would it be safe to say that if we were to do this outfit the following would be needed:

Brown bdu pants
Light grey longsleeve t-shirt and spats/gaiters
RFT vest and helmet
Tan gloves
Black boots
OD belt, pouch
Endor Trooper Bandoleer
Wristcomm


yes, no, yes? I think the long sleeve t-shirt is what I'm most concerned about seeing as I've only ever seen that acid washed kind of look. Like gray sweat pants.

Questions, comments, miscellaneous donations?

I would need to see a picture reference. I'm not up on EU/games/books, so visuals are needed for me. Smile

IMO, figures often make very poor resources for costuming. The details are often incorrect, lacking, or substituted with parts from other figures.

This would be an Informal costume if this is the only resource.

Is this character from a game? book? comic?

Informal is fine for me. It's just something fun for me to ponder and try and put together Smile I'll just add it onto my list of possibilities. Maybe wear it to a con if I ever go to one...

I wouldn't mind doing this costume....but I'd need to make the rocket launcher, too. Evil or Very Mad

That would be sweet to make. I don't think it would fit in my car though, LOL!

I'm sure it could be rigged to break down into a few pieces.

That is not the launcher used by the RFT. That is used by the Clones.

This is what the Rebels use in the game:



...and thi is a pic of the figure which is holding a launcher that the droids use:

Is it just me, or does that look like a singlepoint scope on top of the launcher?

I thought Battlefront was a game? Confused

Anyhow, it would still be Informal but definitely fun to do. Very Happy

It is a game. The figure is based off the character from the game.

if someone can grab some screencaps, it'd be made formal.

Again, informal works. it'll be popular with the peoples who play the games and conventions I'm sure.

At this point I'm just looking for ideas regarding the shirt, because finding a solid light gray longsleeve t-shirt is not an easy task thus far.

Though I could get to collared light gray dickie shirts and rock the design out RFT style. Hmmmm.....
