    CHARACTER DESCRIPTION

    Jedi librarians, also called Jedi scholars, were members of the Jedi Order who had chosen to pursue the teachings of the Consular, specializing as a Lore Keeper. These Jedi were dedicated to safeguarding and updating the Order’s libraries and the Jedi Temple Archives. Source Wookieepedia


    REQUIRED ITEMS

    1. Outer Tunic (when not using a dress):

    a. Sleeved. Sleeves should hang at least to the wrist when the arms are held down at the side.

    b. Martial arts clothing in any form is unapprovable.

    d. OTs have a collar approximately 2 inches (5 cm) wide.

    e. OTs length may be variable and can extend to the floor. OTs minimal length should be long enough to cover the wearer’s buttocks and crotch area. Mid-thigh is optimal. OTs are generally made in a fashion where there is a full skirt (attached to the main body of the OT) where the seam is hidden by the obi.

    f. OTs minimum length must cover crotch and buttocks, when wearing pants.

    2. Dress: (Example: Atris):

    Like OTs, they are floor length.

    When a dress, no skirt and pants are needed.

The back tabards may end under the obi or may extend to (or past) the bottom hem of the OT (or may be the same length as the front tabards). This guideline is obviously for the more traditional length OTs. For OTs that are longer (past the knee or to the floor or where a full length skirt is worn), the tabard length would be more variable.

    e. Leather or pleather tabards permitted.

    f. Tabard width should be from the seam at the collar of the OT to the edge of the shoulder and be a similar width as the obi. A general width to use would be 5 inches to 6 inches wide (depending on one’s height and build). Common sense should be used in selecting tabard width, and the width is proportional to the costumer’s body.

    6. Obi (sash):

    The obi wraps around the waist, and is approximately 4 to 6 inches wide and/or of a similar width as the tabards.

    When wearing pants:

    Brown or Black Boots – Leather or leather-like (no rubber boots).

    a. Mid-calf, but not above the knee (motorcycle boots, or “engineer” boots, ~14 inches). Extensions are allowed).

    b. No visible laces or outside zippers. When necessary, inside zippers are permitted.

    c. Straps & shin-spats are allowed but not required (though can be used to cover laces and zippers).

    Art Liu — Taiwan Outpost
    1983–2018

    Art was a great pilot who worked for China Airlines and enjoyed his time in the sky. He was also a huge Star Wars fan since childhood. His favorite costume in the Rebel Legion was the X-Wing pilot, just like his job as a commercial airline pilot. Art also loved collecting lightsabers and had 8 of them in his Star Wars collection.

    He already finished his pilot costume and started to make his Jedi costume just one week before his passing. He was that close to joining this big family as an active member of the Taiwan Outpost, but sadly this dream would never come true.

    Now we bestow upon Art an honorary membership, in memory of him as a dear friend and a good partner who dedicated himself to charity events and using Star Wars to spread love.

    All of his friends from Taiwan Outpost will always remember him and all the great memories we had with him.

    Dear Art, we know now you’re with the force and you will be with us as a shining star, always…

    CHARACTER DESCRIPTION

    Blue Squadron was an airspeeder and starfighter squadron that served as part of the Alliance to Restore the Republic (also known as the Rebel Alliance) during the Galactic Civil War. Participating in many important battles including the Battle of Scariff, the Battle of Hoth and the Battle of Endor, the members were skilled pilots, and wore unique blue flight suits during the early stages of the war. (Source: Wookieepedia)


    REQUIRED ITEMS

    1. Flight Suit :

    The flight suit is a petroleum blue, one-piece flight suit/coveralls in a material consistent with screen references. The fabric should have a slight sheen (such as acetate or bomber silk) and be of sufficient weight to create a somewhat puffy look (which may require the suit to be lined). The coveralls feature several details:

    The front zipper is hidden by a strip of material of the same color and material as the suit.

    The sleeves have knife pleats from the bottom of the collar to the wrist, with each pleat approximately 1/2″ (inch)/1.3 cm (centimeter) wide, made of an off-white fabric of a similar material to that of the suit, and a shade or two darker than the color of the flak vest. The pleating is inset with piping along the edges. The strip of pleats is 3″ (inches)/7.6 cm wide.

    The flight suit features contrasting top stitching in a beige-colored thread.

    The collar closes at the front with two snaps. The collar is also padded and features a horizontal gray or silver zipper along the sides and back to create the appearance of a hidden hood.

    A commpad pocket on the left sleeve with an open “window” that sits above the wrist and is made of the same blue fabric as the suit.

    There are two chest pockets with curved openings that wrap around the sides of the torso and the ends are stitched into the side seams of the suit, like Nomex flight suit chest pockets.

    There are two upper thigh pockets with curved openings.

    The right front thigh has a cargo-style kneepad pocket with a rectangular frame at the top, and has a blue webbing pull tab on the bottom flap and a side pen pocket.

    There is a rectangular pocket on the left front thigh with a vertical gray or silver zipper.

    Another pocket on the lower portion of the left leg, which is rectangular in shape and has a horizontal gray or silver zipper at the top.

    The front panel has a series of horizontal ribs. The ribs are created by inserting 0.25″ (inch)/.65 cm clear air line tubing (or similar sized material) through fabric tubes prepared for the tubing. Ribs are separated from each other by a space that is the same width as the finished rib.

    The side straps attach together via a black plastic strap adjuster or a silver metal strap adjuster, one on each side, rather than a purse clip/buckle like the Original Trilogy version.

    3. Chestbox:

    4. Ejection Harness:

    The ejection harness is made of gray pleated elastic strapping that is 2” (inches)/5 cm wide. Front and back straps extend up the torso under the flak vest and are secured to either the flight suit or to the underside of the flak vest panels. Attachment must be hidden by the flak vest. The lower part of the harness should fall (or loop) just below the inseam (or crotch area).

The belt has silver-grey 1” (inch)/2.5 cm webbing loops sewn on left and right sides divided into six loops on each side. The loop webbing is a lighter color than the belt.

    6. Commpad:

The commpad is attached to the gauntlet of the left glove and is positioned with the teeth facing to the wearer’s right.

In each loop is a leg flare, which are cylindrical in shape, starts off narrower at the top and has a wider portion at the middle. At the bottom it narrows in again, has a wide ring, and then narrows once again to a flat end. They are silver in color. OT X-wing pilot leg flares will not be accepted.

    9. Gloves:

    Grey, beige or black gauntlet gloves in a heavy fabric, suede, or suede-like material, accurately styled. The gauntlet has five to six lines of pleated stitching going all the way around, and the glove has four wider pleats on the top of the hand with the first three pleats that are closest to the fingers being the same size but smaller than the lower pleat, which is wider. There is a small Velcro strap on the inside top of the wrist behind the thumb.

    10. Boots:

    Mid-calf black boots (Jack boots or engineer boots are acceptable). Leather pull-on style preferred and with low heels. No laces or ankle buckles (a small buckle at top edge of boot is acceptable if covered by blousing the suit legs to hide them).

    1. An X-wing pilot helmet of accurate style and decor. Original Trilogy or Rogue One variations are acceptable.
