”Confer upon you ALL the rank of Jedi, the Council does.”

It’s been a long time coming. But continuing conversations, input from members and submission issues over the years has helped us evolve the costume standards. Face characters are being treated as such and have much more exacting standards written for them. Generic standards have needed to be ‘fixed’, and finally, we have a solution.

From this point forward, Old Republic Jedi and New Republic Jedi costume standards will be renamed to ‘Old Republic Jedi Face Characters’ and ‘New Republic Jedi Face Characters’. We will continue to re-work these standards as they are brought up, adding images and as much detail as possible to uphold high Legion standards and reward costumes that are good representations of the character.

So what of our generic standards? They go away. From now on, we’re all called ‘Jedi’.

There is a new thread in the Costume Standards today for ‘Jedi’ which encompasses Old Republic and New Republic styles in one standard. Gone are the days of the hook or Covertec conversation; gone are the restrictive color styles; even gone is the sleeved requirement (in a way, you’ll see, they still don’t go around showing skin). This is really the result of a collaborative effort that has evolved over the years involving a lot of members, and I am proud to present them.

A new banner has been created for Jedi on the main webpage, as well as changes to database entries for members. In attempting to find images of generic Jedi for reference, I went to the best source: our membership.

The Jedi standards can be viewed here and are effective immediately. Good creating, and May the Force Be With You!

I noticed that a light saber (or just hilt/belt hanger) is now required. Is this legal in all counties?

There really has been no change in the lightsaber requirement...

A non toy lightsaber has always been required for any Jedi costume...whether it be just a hilt or a bladed hilt...


A clip has also always been required...
in the old standard ORJ Jedi were required to have a covertec style clip and NRJ were required to have a D-ring/D-ring style clip.

In the new standard....it is either/or and not dictated by era...

Hi I'm just starting out and I wanted to be sure I read the new "Jedi" CRL correctly. The way I'm interpreting it is that a Jedi can theoretically be dressed in all black - outer tunic, sash, inner tunic, and even have a black robe/cloak? Is this correct?



Would an "all-black" Jedi be considered canon/formal then if he/she gets the 3 requirements beyond the basic costume?

I would recommend you have some brown/other acceptable color in there save red, but I'll leave it to the LCJ's to make a definitive ruling.

Yes....
all black costumes had always been accepted as NRJ with the proper optional items...

check my profile...
and you will see a formal NRJ with black tunic, tabards and sash..

Silly question time: what about blasters?

When I rebuilt my Jedi, I added a blaster because it fit the back story and was one of the things for the "formal" list. Do I now need to remove it as there is no mention (that I found anyway) of them in the new guide?

Anyone with a Jedi costume in one of the new frames (which yours is)
is grandfathered in...


and you don't have to do anything..

It is just people in the old style frames (from the old website) and new applicants that have to worry about that...

Follow up question on blasters... I know the standards are minimum requirements which certainly do not take all optional accessories into account, but I'm curious to the "grandfathered in" and "new applicants have to worry about that" comments. That phrasing sounds like blasters wouldn't be approved going forward. Is that the case?

Hopefully I'm just misreading. Smile

blasters are not addressed...

blasters were always an optional item..

if you have enough of the other optional elements/items on the list of options...

you can always add a blaster on top of those required additional items if you so desire.

Thanks for clarifying that part. I hate falling into a "grandfather clause" thing and like to keep up to current CRLs with my stuff. I really dig the holster rig I made, so glad to hear it is still allowed Smile

Can someone clarify how this affects informals? Are we no longer able to use sources to back up variations? I just finished a Ki-Adi Mundi/Sarrissa Jeng style tunic set and haven't had a chance to get my photos in yet. I'm concerned that I wouldn't even be able to get it approved as informal.

I'm sorry, Vera, are you saying you 'want' to be approved as Informal? Because with the long sleeve inner tunic, and a sleeveless outer like her, you could be a Formal.

Then again, if you want to be Informal, feel free to select Informal from the pull down menu. I don't think anyone will make you be 'Formal'.

Oh no, I'd love to be formal, but with a sleeveless outer tunic and no tabbards, I didn't think that possible. And I wasn't sure how the changes would affect informal options either.

If you were recreating the face character Sarrissa Jeng (is she the one in the Geonosis arena battle with the braid around her head?)...
you would then move from generic Jedi to face Jedi...

If there are no standards for said character, then the judge would have to go by the reference material..
