Costume Standards for the Starkiller TIE Fighter Factory/Training Costume







A Starkiller Training Costume Must Have:

(These costume elements are required.)




Short Hair:

* The hair is dark brown, and must be cut very short.






Special Effects Makeup:

* Special effects makeup is used to create scars and dried blood stains.

* A cut or lightsaber burn crosses the upper right arm just below the shoulder.

* Dried blood covers the back of the left elbow, with rivulets and smears running down to the wraps that cover the forearm.







Inner Shirt:

* The sleeveless inner shirt is black or an extremely dark shade of brown.

* The inner shirt has a round, t-shirt style neckline.



Outer Tunic:

* The outer tunic is made of a dark brown material. Fabric with a twill weave pattern such as bull denim is the most accurate.

* The tunic has a Jedi style V-neck overlap, with the right side tucked under the left.

* The left side of the tunic is unusually long, with a triangular shaped extension that wraps completely around the torso. The wrap begins at the left shoulder and goes across the front of the torso, under the right arm, and then diagonally across the lower back. The end of the wrap is hidden by the belts, and can be secured on the front left side in any practical way.

* The left sleeve is torn off at the elbow. It reaches only to the elbow in the back, and hangs loosely over the forearm in the front.

* The right sleeve has three tears or cuts. One cut reveals a lightsaber burn on the upper arm. Another long tear is located over the right bicep, and a third is visible just above the forearm wraps

* The tunic fabric is heavily weathered, and should be stained to replicate the appearance of dried blood, sweat, and grime.

* A trail of dried blood just to the left of the spine goes down the back of the tunic from a small puncture wound just below the armor.













* The pants are made with the same dark brown fabric as the tunic.

* The pants are slightly baggy, and must tuck into the boots.

* The fabric must be heavily weathered, and should have a damaged area running across the outer right thigh.







Fabric Wraps:

* The wraps should be made with the same type of fabric as the tunic and pants. The edges are cleanly cut and should not be badly fraying.

* The wraps covering the hands and wrists are the same dark brown color as the tunic, or they may be stained nearly black.

* The remaining wraps are stained in a heavily weathered combination of tan and grey tones.

* The strips of fabric used in the wraps may vary in width, but they should average around 3 to 4 cm.

* A wrap around the upper left arm ties at the back of the arm, and has the ends cut short.

* A wrap around the upper right arm ties in the front, and has a length of fabric hanging loose from the knot.

* The wrap around the left wrist is tied at the outside of the wrist, and has the ends of the fabric hanging free.

* The wrap around the right wrist is very long, and wraps many times around the gauntlet.






Loin Cloth:

* The fabric should be a medium brown, much lighter than the tunic and with a warmer tone.

* The loin cloth extends just past the knees in the back, and reaches to just above the knees in the front.

* The fabric is heavily tattered and stained, especially at the bottom edges.








* The armor is made in two pieces, with one piece covering each shoulder and extending up to cover the sides and back of the neck.

* The armor has a heavily weathered nickle finish.

* In the back, the two sections of armor are held together by a pair of dark brown leather straps that are located close together near the bottom edge.

* The gap between the armor sections is approximately 1.5 cm wide in the back.

* In the front, the two sections of armor are held together by a pair of side release clips that are located close together near the bottom edge of the armor.

* A leather strap goes under each arm. The straps are permanently connected to the bottom edge of the back sections of the armor. In the front, the straps are connected to the armor with side release clips.

* A restraining bolt is located on the left chest plate.

* Black scoring should be present around the bolt, flaring up toward the left shoulder. Two trails of "oil" stain should run down the armor from the base of the restraining bolt.

* A series of rivet holes are located at intervals around the edges of the armor.










* The belts should be made of leather that has been stained very dark brown.


* Belt One is at the top. This belt is approximately 5 cm in width. It has a metallic silver slide clasp on the front left side, and a side-release buckle at the center back. A tail piece of belt leather approximately 7 cm long hangs from the right side of the buckle.


* Belt Two is second from the top. This belt is approximately 4 cm in width. It has thin lines etched into the top and bottom edges of the belt. It has a side release buckle on the front right side, with a tail piece hanging from the buckle that is approximately 15 cm long. This tail goes over belt two, and then tucks under the rest of the belts. There is a metallic silver slide clasp on the back left side of belt two, and a tail hangs from this clasp which goes over belt two and then under the rest of the belts. This tail hangs nearly to the back of the knee.


* Belt Three is third from the top. This belt is approximately 5 cm in width. It has a side release buckle at the center back. A tail hangs from the right side of the buckle and hangs down to mid-thigh. A silver d-ring is riveted to the bottom edge of belt three. Located at the front left side, the d-ring is attached with two dark brown rivets which are visible on the outside of the belt. A metallic silver hook designed for holding lightsabers with d-rings is also riveted on the left side of buckle three.


* Belt Four is fourth from the top, and is nearly hidden beneath the other belts. This belt is approximately 4 cm in width. The side release buckle is located at the front right hip. No tail pieces hang from this belt.


* Belt Five is at the bottom. This belt is approximately 4 cm in width. It has a side release buckle located to the right of front center. A tail piece hangs from the right side of the buckle, reaching nearly to the knee. A second side release buckle is located on the back right side. This buckle has a shorter tail piece hanging on the left side which is approximately 9 cm long. A thin strap of leather is used to attach a silver d-ring to the top left side of the belt.


* A larger belt is worn draped on a diagonal line over the other belts. This belt is approximately 6-7 cm in width. Lines are etched onto the top and bottom edges of the belt leather. A large silver slide clasp is located at the front left which has holes or rivets located at the top and bottom edges. Shadows on the belt suggest that the slide clasp is attached only to the right side of the belt, hiding the cut edge of the leather, and then the left end of the belt goes underneath it. The left side can then be attached with snaps that are disguised by the slide clasp. A matching slide clasp is located at the center back of the belt. Four large swivel clips are located on the back of the belt, with two on each side of the slide clasp. These clips are riveted or glued to the belt.












* The gauntlet must be designed to match the reference images. It is a unique configuration, so an unmodified Boba Fett gauntlet may not be used.

* The gauntlet fnish is the same weathered nickle as the armor.

* The LED display should read "Order 67, Search, Destroy, Kota" in the Arubesh language.









* Dark brown boots with low heels.

* No buckles or laces should be visible.



Boot Wraps:

* The boots are covered with thick layers of heavily stained fabric wraps.

* The wraps cover the entire shaft of the boots, and wrap around the foot as well.

* The ends of the wraps over the right boot should be tucked in at the top.

* The wraps covering the left boot are knotted near the outer top edge of the boot. The ends of the wrap fabric should drape down from the knot, hanging freely to the ankle.







A Starkiller Training Costume Should Have:

(These costume elements are highly recommended, but are not required.)




* The hilt should resemble the reference images for Starkiller's saber.

* If the lighsaber has a blade, the blade must be red in color.







Boot Panel:

* The boots should have a front panel that is approximately 7cm wide.

* The panel should be the same color as the rest of the boots.

* While it is nearly covered by the boot wraps, the panel is visible at the top of the boot shafts
