I haven't been able to find the costume standards for Maris Brood from the Force Unleashed. I see that there are a few approved costumes but, are there standards for it?

so the standards are exactly the same as for the 501st?

If it's an approved Rebel Legion costume, then shouldn't there be standards available somewhere at the Rebel Legion? There are standards for Visas Mar and Mara Jade which are exactly the same as the 501st.

There are no Rebel Legion costume standards for Maris Brood. This doesn't mean her costume can't be approved as a formal Rebel Legion costume...it's just that no one has done it yet.

The thing is, in terms of her "face time" (meaning when you acutally see her) in the Star Wars universe, she is predominantly with the Dark Side. This is likely why Maris Brood is generally seen as a 501st character.

However, her history states that she, along with her Master, Shaak Ti, survived the Jedi Purge (Order 66) and was a Jedi padawan. Therefore, theoretically, she could be approved for the Rebel Legion.

The 501st CRL (costume resource library) would be a good place to start, with respect to developing Costume Standards for the Rebel Legion.

I am only one LCJ and the current CO of the KJO. While I, personally, would have no problems establishing Maris Brood as a Rebel Legion costume, it would be prudent to get opinions from other LCJs and the LMO (JediMasterMark).

You may use this thread as your WIP (work in progress) thread for discussion and planning for your Maris Brood costume Wink



PS (And our Costume Standards are in flux as we are upgrading and clarifying many of our standards. But...the last time I checked, the Visas Marr RL standards were slightly different than the 501st...because her costume changes...slightly...from when she was a Jedi versus when she was a Dark Side user.)

Heck, she's a padawan when you first see her in TFU.

Arguably it could be debated that she hadn't fallen at that point, only after Shaak Ti is killed by Starkiller and she is left to her own devices.

There are currently 3 Maris Broods in the RL

As far as standards, probably the same, but with green blades.

Right and possibly the skin would tend to be less pale and distressed as (I think) that showed her body's distress from dark side use.
