I have a question regarding Face characters and the closeness of the hair and beards. The standards state the hair should be similar style and color, but I’ve noticed certain face characters that were approved even though the hair, etc did not match that of the face character, I.e. Old Ben Kenobi. I’ve seen several approved Bens that the hair was not the same color or style, though the costumes were accurate. It seems the standards say one thing but I see approved characters, some recent, that don’t match in this area.

So I am wondering, is this acceptable?

Personally I think this is the thing that truly sets us apart from others , the reason we are LFL's preferred good guys , our ability to reproduce face characters so accurately, it should be mandatory that if you choose to do a face character it is an accurate representation of it or else you are effectively some generic hybrid cosplay at best , I can guarantee you a cast LFL canon event won't have Luke Skywalker with black hair and a buzz cut under any circumstances. Face characters are a bracket all to themselves, the name says it all .

What you're referring to is a pretty recent change. So there will be many who were approved before that change.

If you're going to be Character X, might as well do what you can to match the elements.

I do so with my named characters, in particular Dooku (I know, other club) shaving to match Lee and whiting my very red hair.
