  • The cape is box-pleated and reaches nearly to the floor.
    • Option: A knife pleat variant is also acceptable.
  • The hood is full and drapes around the face in the front to create a cowl-like appearance.
  • The capelet attaches to the hooks on the black sections of the cuirass. It is attached with silver clasps at four points, two on the left, two on the right, and then drapes around the shoulders.
  • Accurate clasps are strongly recommended. Rings are acceptable if a more accurate alternative is not available.

For 501st approval:


  • Heavy black fabric is used for the cape, hood, and capelet.
  • The cape is box-pleated and reaches nearly to the floor.
  • The hood completely encloses the face, and drapes in a hooded style at the bottom of the front of the hood.

  • Note: It is not clear if the black area visible in the game render was meant to be a piece of the mask, or if it is a rough rendering of Revan's face which was supposed to be hidden by the hood. Because of this uncertainty, the black side panels may be included or left off of the mask at the costumer's discretion.

I like most of the changes.  One note though... for the saber, you have the description that the pommel is gold / brass in color, but the reference image looks gray / pewter in color for the pommel.

Also, are currently approved costumes being grandfathered?

I actually didn't even read that part of the existing CRL, but thanks for catching that! The pommel can be grey or black, the emitter is gold or brass.


 


Existing costumes will not be affected by the changes, but it is recommended to update. Your choice, though.

Just so I understand correctly, The previously optional back armor is now going to be a required item?

Correct. The armor does not come as a chest and back piece in the game, they are a single item and show together. No official reference of Revan shows only the chest armor. The optional back piece that is listed currently was more due to the cape covering it, but for the new one, that will not be the case.

Correct. It is currently listed as pleated, but will no longer be. Any costumes currently approved will not have to change anything, but as with any CRL update, it is recommended.

I suggest rolled pleats for skirt as well. I used this type of pleats when I was sewing Revan's costume for a friend and it keeps shape very good, without ironing. It's very comfortable during trooping, when there's no time and space to iron stuff.

I take it the back armor is now no longer an optional accessory?

It will not be optional come full revision.

The rolled pleats look great, just make sure the skirt has a split down the entire length on the front and back. No solid skirts for approval.

Thank you :) in fact there are trousers. Such type of pleats give an illusion of skirt, but when a person moves, split is visible. So I wonder if only skirt is an option? It could be either skirt or trousers in hakama style - in both options there will be visible opening.

The hakama style wraps around the legs, while the skirt style does not. to date, no reference has shown the wrapped style to exist, which is why i am phasing out the hakama style.
