Per the CRL, Revan’s armor is to be made out of a “rigid material.”

I’m not skilled with plastics, but I’m getting better with leather. Considering the detail and curvature, if I started with a base cuirass of 9-10 oz leather, soaked and formed to my torso, and then the detailing pieces were cemented on as well, the result is going to be fairly stiff: layered composites over a curved/formed surface lose flexibility. Not as rigid as thermoplastic, of course.

would this be likely to pass? Or should I start saving up to buy from Wicked Armor? I just don’t have the space in my apartment to add another medium on top of my sewing and leatherworking gear.

From the UK, no one has cleared a dark side Revan with leather and I'm not sure you'd get the right look. I've had both the older and newer armour from wicked and the newer version is fantastic, he's really upped his game and the level of detail is amazing, so my recommendation would be to save up and get the wicked armour set

It depends on if you can fully replicate the design without modifying it. That means no rivets, no extra straps, no buckles, no showing seams, etc.

If you are able to do that and still include all the details, then I would have no issue.
