    e. The belts have two D-rings or rectangular metal rings on the right side (used to take belt on and off) of top and bottom belts. The rings should sit to the side and slightly behind the front hip bone.

    1. Staff: The staff should be proportional to the costumer’s height. It should be about 6-8” (15.24 cm to 20.32cm) above the head of the costumer when held straight up. Two H-shaped leather “harnesses”, each with a metal D-ring, attach to the strap with snaps. The staff has a weathered tan strap that attaches to those D-rings with metal clasps. Staff is extremely detailed and will be compared to the photo references to determine closeness in detailing for approval. Staff is metallic black. All pieces should be weathered.

    2. Rey’s Lightsaber (Skywalker graflex). No toy sabers, no Ultimate FX short saber). The lightsaber may be a static prop (hilt-only). If bladed it must Blue.
