Can someone explain to me how the custom costume thing works? I heard you have to have a cannon costume first, and what are the basic CRL's for making your own character etc... I don't know how it works but I've seen others with custom, made up characters. Can someone enlighten me on the rules? Thanks!

That is a question for the LMO, as far as I know (and I could be wrong), custom characters/costumes are not allowed. There has to be at least 3 references for a particular character if it is something that is not already listed in the existing CRL listing.

Yeah, see that's what I'd like clarification on. I don't know all the characters in the Star Wars universe but I've seen some people from the twi'lek forums that have registered costumes with RL that I thought were custom characters.
Confused :s

I am a Pilot and Trooper judge, so I I don't know the exact details of how the "Creatures & Droids" judges apply the standards, but here's the exact text from the standard:

"Dancer clothing similar to what is seen on screen or in reference material"

So if you make something that is not too far removed from what is seen on screen or a graphic novel you should be OK.

Speaking as a Judge, your best action is to post in the C&D forum and describe what you intend to do - colors, materials, etc. - and get the provisional OK from the judges before you start buying or cutting.

The more you engage the judges and other detachment members, the easier time you will have when you submit for approval.

As Mac said. Post in the C and D area.

If you wanted to make a generic Twi'lek Jedi (For Example) You would make a jedi costume and add your lekuu.
