  • This CRL is a work in progress.
  • As such, this costume must be approved by the Legion Membership Officer, via the appropriate section of the Legion forum.
  • If you have this costume and would like to assist with the completion of this library entry, please contact your detachment leader.
  • Please note that the use of the word "should" below does not indicate that the armor piece is considered open to interpretation. All instances of "should be" and "should have" will be replaced with "is" and "has", as this guide is completed.

{{CRLtemplate|Disguise Hair: Mara's uncover hair or wig is black, shoulder length and wavy.

As an alternative to the disguise hair style, Mara's natural hair may be replicated. In such case the hair or wig may be strawberry-blonde, red, or red-gold in color. The hair reaches from the shoulders to mid-back.

{{CRLtemplate|Head band: A narrow silver headband encircles the forehead. The headband includes an ornamental embellishment at each temple.

{{CRLtemplate|Veil: The long rectangular veil is made of the same blue as the rest of the costume. The fabric may be opaque or slightly sheer. A black or silver elastic band around each bicep holds the scarf against the upper arms. One or two narrow silver bracelets hold the scarf at each wrist.

{{CRLtemplate|File:DZ-arica-bluedress-dress.jpeg|Dress: The sleeveless bodysuit is made from black fishnet material. A privacy lining may be sewn under the fishnet as long as the nude effect is preserved. A blue fabric appliqué covers the chest. The appliqué should resemble a pair of wings, with five "feathers" curving downward on each side. A pair of triangular designs is topstitched on the top edge of each wing. The center of the appliqué is topstitched with circles and a vertical center line. The skirt is made of the same blue material as the appliqué wings. It consists of a front and a back panel, and is open at the sides. The panels extend below the knees. The front and back panels are connected to each other by a strip of the same blue material, which is approximately 3 cm wide. Decorative strips of fabric similar to belt loops are spaced along the top edge of the skirt.

{{CRLtemplate|Stockings: The black stockings extend from the ankles to mid thigh.

Optional Accessories

Items below are optional costume accessories. These items are not required for approval, but if present appear as described below.

{{CRLtemplate|Garters: A black garter band may be worn around the top of each stocking. Oval shaped designs made of a silver material are evenly spaced around the garter bands.

{{CRLtemplate|Footwear: Arica is barefoot while wearing this dress. When shoes are needed for the costumer's comfort and safety, footwear similar to the styles seen in Jabba's palace may be worn. Acceptable footwear includes the sandals seen with the Arica jumpsuit, black Slave Leia style boots, or sandals similar to those worn by Oola.
