Hi all,

I have a question about acceptable costume sources. I've submitted a Padmé lake gown for approval (and am waiting patiently for a response), and I have a second Star Wars costume I'd love to register if possible. I constructed Princess Leia's dress from the classic style A movie poster, by Tom Jung. It's based on her ceremonial dress from the end of Episode IV, but there are some obvious changes to the belt and the hairstyle.
It's not an on-screen costume, but it's not EU either. I can't quite figure out if a dress based on a single poster would be categorized as formal or informal. I know I haven't found any listed standards for this particular costume.
What do you think?

Thanks so very much,

Welcome! So glad that you've submitted your lake gown. Don't forget that once your costume is approved, you may also sign up to be part of the Galactic Senate Very Happy

As for your question, you will want to take a look at our charter found here:

http://www.rebellegion.com/about_charter.php#3

And I think the section you are looking for is this:

"Informal: Informal is defined as costume from one of the six Star Wars films, Expanded Universe, Lucasfilm Licensed Media (TV, books, games, etc.) that does not contain all the elements as it appears in the source material and/or is customized as the owner desires. An Informal costume can also be something never seen in a film, EU, or LFL media material. These original and customized costumes will be considered, provided that their level of customization has some precedence in the Star Wars Universe. Informal costumes may be reproductions of film or EU costumes that do not meet all the Costume Standards listed in the Costume Standards Master List, on The Rebel Legion website, or they may be EU costumes with less then three (3) reference sources."

Feel free to ask any other questions you may have. We are here to help.

So something with only one source (like a single poster) is by definition informal? I'm confused mostly because I'm not sure if a non-filmed costume for a canon character is Expanded Universe.

Thanks so much for your input!

Don't worry, it's still a fantastic costume. It's not expanded universe, but unfortunately because Leia only wore that outfit in that particular poster, that is the reason it must be informal. I'm planning on doing this costume too someday Very Happy In order for a costume to be formal, it must be seen in the movies, clone wars (old clone wars and new clone wars), and if it is expanded universe, it must have at least 3 sources. For example, if Leia had worn that outfit in a comic book, sketch card, etc, then it may qualify for formal, but since she only wore it on that one poster, that's why it must be informal.
It's still a great costume to wear and I'm happy for you for choosing that awesome costume Smile
