You just made me realize something Bean. RFTs can have a break from being chocked by Vader now that he has someone to cross lightsabers with. Razz

Sorry Team, I didn't get approved, so I'm not in. The vest is too dark. _Master_Skywalker_ gave me some great tips.

It doesn't end there, I'll be trying again so there can be a Luke Skywalker at Supanova and Dreamworld. Smile

WHAT!? That's a load of Bantha Poodu.

says right here from the CRL. Luke Skywalker Sarlaac pit.

Quote:

Black or dark grey vest w/scarf-style tabbards and wide sash belt


You don't get much darker than black.

in each of the application photo's the vest/tabbards are darker than the shirt, this is the wrong way around- as you can clearly see from these screenshots as reference on my web site- the vest is lighter than the shirt






...and even in natural light: same look: same result:



or this pic I took at the "Magic of Myth exhibition"in Sydney:




Luke acknowledges that the vest should be slightly lighter than the shirt. so in closing, yes black is ok if it gives the right look, Museum replicas do not give the right look. Even a photo taken from their own website which you would think would portray the costume the best it can has it around the wrong way.

I have offered Luke an alternative & that is Death Star Duel.

This is also the first time I have ever publicly explained my actions in corresponding to an applicant.

I hope that clears things up. Just because it is store bought doesn't mean it is correct Wink

Then perhaps the CRL should be a little more defined to say "lighter than the shirt"

perhaps, but the costume standards are only a guide for both the applicant & the LCJ, ultimately the decision rests with the LCJ wether it is acurate enough or not. It would be impossible to list every single, nut, bolt, crease,angle, measurement etc etc of a costume...that is why we have costume experts to pick up on these details Wink

you can see from my photo the tabbards should be slightly longer than the vest, but it doesn't specify the length the tabbards should be or the length past nor should it, it just needs to "look right" Wink

Yeah but then that's where a problem is then. Anybody and Everybody, will make there costume to what the CRL says. With the CRLs not being 100% accurate, you're going to have people waisting their money. Then we're going to end up with is nothing but a bunch of very angry people. CRL is a guide, not a suggestion. And it's not that hard to list every single, nut, bolt, crease, angle, measurement etc etc of a costume. Someone just has to sit down and do it. Hell I know that over here on the RL they are getting a little sick of being compared to the 501st, but seriously, they have no problem listing every, nut, bolt, crease, angle and measurement, necessary for 100% approval.

So, why not, everytime something is noticed as not being listed in a CRL, that should be, doesn't someone just sit down and type up the change and have it uploaded. Seriously, no more than 2 minutes work tops.

Congratulations mate:



We judge costumes differently than the 501st & it has worked quite well. Infact I have judged costumes for over 3 years now & have never had any upset applicants- Luke included. Wink
