    Updateing my Revan

    Continuing the Revan upgrades in keeping with the new CRL. This time it is the raised doodad on the back of the kidney plate. Did it in clay and painted over it with the touch up paint from wicked armor. A bit more touch up needed, but I think it will work. Need to paint the whole lower portion dark copper anyways.

    Yes, it should match the red sash. I ended up using 2” wide ribbon from a fabric store. I glued it down, let the glue dry, then folded the bottom edge up and glued it in place so what is visible is a thin red section that is actually the fold among the middle of the ribbon.

    The chest rings are not flat. They are welded, but the welded bit is under the strap. I picked them up at a local hardware store. The same is true of the 2" rings. They have big old weld marks, but I hid them under the straps.

    Those are the Tiny Giants. They are 80 before shipping. Come with a blade and a charge cable.

    I still have one of those 2 left.

    A dickie top would just make the neck and chest a separate piece from the sleeves. It would allow the costumer to use pretty much any long sleeve shirt for the sleeves ( provided it has no visible buttons and is appropriately sized) without having to have a fully custom tailored shirt. The collar and piping would be pat of the dickie; the sleeves part of the shirt

    Question on the shirt. I moved the piping on my short up a bit to be in line with the visual references, but after trooping in it recently, I got to wondering if there might be a way to make this more summer friendly. Pretty much any shirt with a collar like this is going to be thick and warm. Is there anything in the CRL or visual references that would make it so I could not replace the collar with a dickie top, sew the piping into that, and then be able to wear a long sleeved black shirt that maybe breathes a bit better underneath?

    Sith Apprentice Cade Skywalker

    Yea, I was going off the fact that his Sith outfit is virtually the same as his regular outfit except for the paint job, the shoulders, the cape, no leg holster, and the vanbrace instead of the wrist wrap. The pictures I used with the regular costume showed the pants and boots better and those parts seem to be the same in both versions. Didn't mean to be confusing. If it is a problem, I will break out my comics and try to take other pictures. They may just not show some of the detail as well.

    Sith Apprentice Cade Skywalker

    I was wondering about this one. I saw a question on it from a while back but no real answer. A also saw that there was one approved Cade in RL, but he seems to be retired. At any rate, I like the Sith apprentice version a lot better. As far as I can tell, this looks like a modified version of his regular outfit. Here are the parts I see: The Breast plate: This plate is sometimes shown with a raised section in the middle and sometimes without. It is a breast plate with 3 small plates beneath it, the top of which might be fused to the breast itself or might not be. It is attached to a back plate at the shoulders and under the arms. In the Sith version it has shoulders composed of one big plate and 2 small ones Pants: Look to me like Vader pants (see first image) Shins: Look to me like Vader Shins Boots: Heavy tread boots with two armor plates Sash/belt: Red sash, modified Imperial knight belt. Sith version lacks holster. Cape: Attaches at the top of the breast plate where it meats the shoulder straps. Vanbrace: Single vanbrace with insignia. No red wrist wraps in Sith Version Tats: Arm tats as in Sith reference Shirt: Sleeveless shirt shirt with high collar. Sometimes ribbed looking, sometimes not. Thoughts?

    What she said. The trim is pretty easy, as are the rings, you just have to be unafraid to scrape the old ones off with a knife. Make sure the trim matches the red sash and be sure to put it on before the rings so that the red line is visible all the way around. I put a backing layer over the whole thing to make sure nothing came off. The new rings are quite a bit heavier. Just trooped in it all day yesterday and they stayed put. The only issue was that the added weight detached the ab plate from the black joining material after a day of use. You might want to make sure that connection is solid as well while you are at it.

    COTF CRL update: No more blackout mask?

    I don’t recall the old CRL saying anything about preserving facial features. Did it? If not, it is hard to fault them. Having text saying that the features are required for approval might sort the issue. I get what you are saying about makeup, but I stil think features are easy to preserve with the right morph hood as long as you know that you are supposed to be preserving them.

    COTF CRL update: No more blackout mask?

    I think the difference might be that I specifically use a morph hood. They are designed to preserve features. A line that says "The face must be blacked out in such a way that the facial features are preserved . The costumer may accomplish this with a sculpted black mask, black makeup, or a tight fitting reinforced or non-reinforced blackout/morph hood, provided that the features (including the lips, nose, and jawline) are discernible in a way consistent with the visual references" would leave the costumer with a bit of freedom while still being pretty clear about the quality of the final result.

    COTF CRL update: No more blackout mask?

    I get that, but I still think it can be achieved without the mask. This is a blackout mask from my submission photos some time back. Discernible lips, chin and nose. The old CRL also left the option of black paint open as well.

    COTF CRL update: No more blackout mask?

    Me too. It makes more sense for the formless darkness, allows you to emote slightly, is more comfortable to wear, and a lot easier to breath in.
