I'm going to dispute the beige since the references I've seen does not show that. In fact Xiaan is often seen in dark scenes (in particular in Clone Wars) and as such the following is pretty much the best color representation I've found, lightingwise:


That would make it a light orange tunic and pants with rust red tabards.
Her headdress is a reddish medium brown and her lekku have wide leather bandsclose towards the tips of the lekku, one on each lek.
It would also make her skin more green-blue than actual blue like Aayla.

Throughout Clone Wars she appears in darker scenes, which make her costume appear shades of brown; lighter brown tunic with darker brown tabards.

These references show the differences in color representation depeding on what lighting the scene has: http://s1303.photobucket.com/user/lcj/library/Expanded%20Universe/Xiaan%20Amersu?sort=2&page=1

I'm not certain that 2 lightsabers should be part of this standard as apposed to just one. The scene depicted in the illustrations was Aalya returning her fallen master's lightsaber, wasn't it? She would normally just use the one.

I agree with that assessment. She only hangs one from her belt.

i can live with this Smile

i cant agree with the orange colours.
Are the picture you posted fotos from the comic you have at home, or from the internet?
i scanned the comics we have at home and the colours are same like in the comics. beige with dark brown.

- body colour: muted aqua turquoise is more green than aayla ..so it is different to aayla.

i like the bandsclose at the tips of the lekku.
i would like to change the "leather" to leatherlike .. because leather will damage the latex of the lekkus (tanning agenc)


-----------------------------
REQUIRED ITEMS

1. Muted aqua/turquoise body colour

2. Lekku matching body colour with dark brown leather or leatherlike headgear

3. Dark brown leather or leather like headgear with a silver metal ornament (looks quite similar to Oola) with bandsclose at the tips of the lekku.

4. Ear caps matching body colour

5. beige lowcut tunic/shirt with trumpet sleeves which ends at the crotch

6. Dark brown tabards which reach blow the knee (front and back) and are ponted to the inner side. The tabards are wider as usual and cover the whole front/back

7. beige obi

8. beige leggings

8. Dark brown leather or leather-like jedi belt with silver buckle

9. 1 silver Lightsabers (no toy or Ultimate FX sabers allowed)

10. Covertec clip (original style)

11. Dark brown over knee leather or leather-like boots

Optional Items:
A second silver Lightsaberhilt

If it might help to see some 'real life' colors placed next to the comic art, here are the fabrics that I dyed to match the comic book art as closely as I could. I would say that the obi is the same dark brown as the tabards.

They are pictures of the comics, but I have the comics and it's not beige in that one. I'll still say it's a sort of light orange in color with a brown/rust red tabards and obi.

I also think it's important to specify that the body color is a light one as opposed to a dark shade. She is fairly pale.

Excellent comparison, Pam. Smile

Looking better. Smile
I'd still say early references show a soft, muted orange for the shirt and a rusty red-brown for the tabards though.

Trying to clear up to wording to keep it short and concise:

1. Muted aqua/turquoise body colour. (Blue-green)

2. Lekku matching body colour. with dark brown leather or leatherlike headgear

3. Dark brown leather or leather like headgear with a silver metal ornament (looks quite similar to Oola) with wide bands close at above the tips of the lekku.

4. Ear caps matching body colour.

5. Beige lowcut tunic/shirt with trumpet long, loose sleeves and long, fitted sleeves. Can be made as two shirts/tunics. which ends at the crotch.

6. Medium to dark brown tabards, which reach below the knee (front and back) and are pointed to the inner side. The tabards are wider than usual and go over the edge of the shoulders. They must not sag. cover the whole front/back

7. beige Medium to dark brown obi. Must match tabards.

8. Beige leggings.

8. Dark brown leather or leather-like jedi belt with silver buckle.

9. 1 silver Lightsaber (no toy or Ultimate FX sabers allowed)

10. Covertec clip (original style).

11. Dark brown over knee leather or leather-like boots.


Added some dots and extra words or took some words away to clear it up. Changed obi color to match tabards. Added in the second set of fitted sleeves. Specified there must both be fitted sleeves and loose sleeves. Removed double mention of the headgear. Suggested adding in (blue-green) to describe the body color; if you're not strong in English the basis colors may be easier to understand.
Green is add ins, red is remove. Dots and the like have not been color coded.
