  1. Please move this to the forum that you think is most appropriate if this is not the right one. What is an LMO? The Legion Membership Team are responsible for reviewing and processing applications for membership, and maintaining and updating member information in the Legion database. The Legion Membership Officer drives costume policies, including acceptable costume types for membership and setting standards for costume submissions, and are the final arbiter of member costume issues and approvals. The Legion Membership Officer supervises and advises Detachments, Garrison Membership Liaisons, and Garrison Web Liaisons on any questions or issues they may have with members costumes. Have a question about membership these are the folks to talk to! LMO@501st.com *Thinking of starting a NTTL (New to the Legion) Costume?

(Ongoing) About Me My name is Dawn Bright and I am the LMO for the 501st Legion, ALMO with the Rebel Legion, I have previously served as XO of the Flagship Eclipse (501st) and the Senatorial Detachment (RL), GML of Southern California Garrison and a Legion Costume Judge (LCJ) for the Rebel Legion. I love making costumes (with an emphasis on EU and new to the legion), I have almost 60 (RL/501) Legion approved costumes. In my normal day to day life I am an Administrator of a care home for developmentally delayed adults in independent and inclusive living situations in sunny Southern California. I work with family's and social workers to establish communication between what the families and residents want for themselves to feel productive and able and I institute success for people in need. I'm a people person and as an LMO I put members first and foremost. People like you with passion for the costumes in this Detachment. We are all volunteers who have spent hundreds of dollars or/and hundreds of hours making costumes. I promise you that you will be treated with respect and deserve honest and efficient results. I look forward to serving you and working with this fine Detachment About the Team Michael Capell CT/SL/ID-3037 Timberline Garrison Michael has been an LMO and on the LMO Team for about a decade.

He has been the SLD Webmaster for ten years, as well as (over the years) been a GXO, GML, GWL, and GEC. He specializes in Clones, EU / Legends, Sith Lord costumes, and helping people where he can. He’s looking forward to another term helping expand our Costume Reference Library. Blair Douglas ID-12266 Midwest Garrison Blair is new to the LMO team but has served as a liaison for unity for the clubs for many years. She has LMO experience with the Rebel Legion and has led an effort in the RL around costume approval reform with a concentration on maintaining quality, improving consistency, and making approvals attainable. Her experience will help us address some of the current pain points within the 501st system. An additional bonus is that Blair is a lead software engineer by day helping to provide Fortune 500 companies technical solutions for their business needs. Her professional experience will also help us assess the current state of the systems supporting costume approvals and help to figure out how to improve them to facilitate a more positive costume approval experience.

He has twice been elected FISD Detachment Leader and has held a number of garrison level command positions in the 501st Legion We are so very excited to work with you guys!

Please do not hesitate to reach out to the Detachment or LMO team. I prefer messages Here or to LMO@501st.com that way I keep record of them and can tag appropriate parties Thank you and have a nice day, Dawn Bright SL-13377 www.SL13377.com https://www.501st.com/members/displaymember.php?userID=15902&costumeID=343
  2. Howdy howdy!! Hmmmm. I know we take him in the rebel legion! http://newsite.rebellegion.com/sharad-hett-tusken/ Is there any good debate for having him in the ranks? I'm always down for dual legion but he doesn't seem like to much of a bad guy. Give me the debate!
  3. You know when I originally saw these guys in the trailer I thought they would be all baddies. But now that I know the story I think that these guys would be best submitted to the rebel legion I look forward to seeing your progress!
  4. Fantastic post! If in doubt and members need advice before breaking out bucks to make a 'New to the legion costume' (it's a lengthy, costly and time consuming process) I highly encourage members to contact DL or the LMO. We are always happy to help. LMO@501st.com
  5. Hello hello! Sending you an email right now. Eric has also sent you a corespondance. Looking forward to hearing from you.
  6. Aye the sithlord detachment to build the costume would be the only other place I can think to have the build thread. But hey we are all 501st legion and all here to help. You've got some great dissection going on. *Fist bump*
  7. Hello to you! Checking in! I think you have come to the right place. I myself started my Kylo Ren build here unknowing as to which detachment would take the costume. Youve come here and made this board thats a great start, so we can give you some great advice I hope! Please feel free to build your costume and submit to your GML. How far along are you? I myself was going to make this costume at one time and had begun a lot of research. If you need any advice as this costume will be a Legion 1st please dont hesitate to shoot me a message or ask any questions. I myself was going to use a prosthetic. I'm a 35 yr old woman not a older gentleman so I would have needed that.
  8. Checking in. I'll take a gander Asap. -Dawn
  9. Sup dude! Super awesome! If you need any help I am here man. *fist bump*
  10. Howdy howdy, Dawn Bright your helpful LMO here. I am sure a lot of this has already been covered by lovely Nina and a few others. Yes Sim Aloo has no Detachment Affiliation. Yes there are talks of creating a home (Detachment) for the Costumes with no CRL. There are a few.. Bazine...Hondo... Sim.. Ithano and thats just off the top of my head. If you are starting a Sim costume maybe....Sithlords are probably your best bet to get feedback? When I started building Kylo Ren I made WIPS both here and in SLD (sithlords) however but yes SLD took the costume as its movies. There is no CRL because the costume was made before the rule that a costume could not be approved without a CRL was made. So we have no CRL. If someone applied with one your GML will post it to the appropriate section and will be looked at by the LMO's. I know (have seen) a build thread at some point on one of those two boards. It should be in the research section. The one builder (The Legion 1st) spent a lot of time and research on his costume. I hope any of this helps!! Dawn Bright SL-13377
  11. Can I just say your belt is ABSOLUTELY awesome looking? Did you submit this to your GML?

    When Im wording it im trying to think how an applicant would find it easiest. As a person thinking about "making" costumes if I looked up the CRL to see which Aphra Id want to do I would personally want to look up the variant by description and or color. So using the names of the artists to refer to the costumes would be very confusing to an applicant and a GML when judging or making. Just my two cents.
  13. Kylo

    Doctor Aphra

    Making observations (many already addressed) to clear up any confusion some may have. Feel free to agree or disagree. Please provide reference or proof. 1. There are 4 different/varient vest costumes. 2. Two of them are vastly different. From the cap to the holster. (This is ignoring the tattoo issue.) And that's "simple burgundy vest" and "Burgundy lined vest". (Or as noted above Vader comic and standalone) 3. There is no standard set for the tattoos - does someone have written evidence of this? I think we may need it. 4. For the "basic red vest" CRL an optional of red blanket stitched 1 inch apart lines OR a zipper optional can appear? I know it's only in a couple panels but someone could come through and try and have an entirely new crl made for a zipper and I vote we just take care of that now.

    Ohh you are right, i see it! Agree 100%

    Tattoos: They might be! I dunno. I did some pulls from the comic and lined up her arms. Her tattoos are allll over the place I agree
  16. Kylo

    Doctor Aphra

    As far as the pants go. I wrote Jean because it is just so easy to get stretch jeans. The color of her pants and design always looks Jean colored throughout her costumes. yes her pants are tight fitting. But theres still wrinkles. To me they look like stretch jean?
  17. Kylo

    Doctor Aphra

    I dunno which CRLS we dont have the hair color/design added in... cant think of any. I know even the Rebels are working standard by standard to add this detail, both in color, design, cut and shape. The more recent CRLS written do seem to all have hair length, details and color added in. Do you have any examples where we didnt do hair? We even argued over Kylo Rens hair recently (i argued brown they argued black) its just something that we add so that folks dont "do what they want" and end up being held up by a GML The CRLS are a guideline to avoid confusion. Just because something isnt in a standard or CRL doesnt mean that its unneeded or should not be done. But laying out important details and not leaving out things is just a good method to have. On the hair length, color and details I did that because Aphra has so many different costumes and varying length of hair. It seems to lengthen and we should make note when something is correlating and changing. She has 3 different Vest costumes and all three seem to have different lenghs of hair. Hope that helps! 3 vests 3 hair lengths shortest Longest

  20. From the Various ref i have above ive pulled the following tattoo details from those images
  21. Hey there! Submitting my Aphra today and I wanted to start a thread on what I see in this costume... I know it may look a bit like the other Burgundy Vest varient we have started. this is a different costume from the holster to the cap to the vest.
  22. Kylo

    Doctor Aphra

    I think the OP put it as optional as well right? If not I completely think it should be. and yeah black hair foooorrr sure!
  23. Kylo

    Doctor Aphra

    Hello. I agree however Jacket is already listed as optional. All optionals are listed on the CRL below the required items. Hair length can vary but we are looking at this varients costume only. Which appears to e shoulder lengh in the front and shoulder blade length in the back.
