Hi! I'm new to Rebel Legion and am in the process of figuring out which Rey to make for my first Rebel Legion approved costume. I would love to do Resistance!Rey, but I also am very interested in doing charity work and hospital visits/meet and greets. Since Scavenger!Rey is her more familiar costume, should I go for that one since kids will be able to recognize it more? Or should I go for Resistance Rey anyway?

Any advice would be great! Thanks in advance!

Any Rey costume will be identifiable.

When Episode VIII comes out, the Resistance will be VERY identifiable - along with the Hero Rey later in that film.

Would going for a Hero Rey costume this early be jumping the gun a little, in terms of doing charity events before TLJ comes out? I know several Legion members have already made the outfit.

Resistance Rey is pretty identifiable. We have both at many events and kids always know Rey.

I think it really depends on what sort of events you are going to do. Resistance Rey looks a bit warmer, which comes in handy during the fall. With all of the holidays in the fall, many bases and garrisons troop various outdoor festivals and parades.

Jakku Rey hands down. I troop once a weekend with a Rey (and I own Rey) and I tell you its the best to own a Jakku Rey. Its by far the most identifyable of the costumes. Also the Jakku tends to fit and look best on ladies.

The resistance one is cool but it was in the movie for less than 5 minutes. Very Happy

Also yes i would second Jedi Rey (AFTER the movie).

I wont even wear that costume to a troop cause literally no one knows who I am. They just call me Jedi Girl. Its not a good option. No kiddos have any clue who you are :/


Ive tried to do my EP8 Kylo with a Rey more than once at troops and its a total bust. :/

Do whichever costume you love the most. Resistance and Jedi Rey will be more recognizable after the film. To the general public, a girl in tan with a blue lightsaber is Rey, in my experience.

Scavenger Rey is very popular right now with young girls. I would go with that one first and then Resistance Rey after TLJ comes out.
