Costuming Review

When you are ready to join (or get a new costume approved), you will submit your pictures to your GML. At that point, it will follow one of the paths below:

Established character with a Visual Guide entry

If a Visual Guide exists for the costume being reviewed, it stands as the official reference for 501st review / approval. The GML will compare the project against that guide and either approve the costume or defer it if revisions are required. If your GML has any questions or concerns, he/she can bring the costume to the Costume Advisory Team for assistance.

Established character without a Visual Guide entry

In the absence of a Visual Guide, your GML will compare your costume against available visual reference. You may be asked to provide the reference materials you used when creating the costume. If your GML has any questions or concerns, he/she can bring the costume to the Costume Advisory Team for assistance.

Expanded Universe Character

Due to the complexity and rarity of most Expanded Universe characters, we require them to be screened by the Legion Membership Officers before approval. Please post the pictures and costumer information to the appropriate section of the GML forum before approving the costumes.

Please note that characters from Star Wars: The Clone Wars are NOT considered Expanded Universe (see the Character Approval Statement for an explanation).

New to the Legion Character

New to the Legion is any character (canon or expanded universe) that meets the requirements in the character approval statement but:

  • Has a Visual Guide and less than 4 approved costumes in the Legion.
  • Has no Visual Guide and less than 6 approved costumes in the Legion.

All new to the Legion characters are reviewed by the LMO/Costume Advisory team. The decision is relayed back to your GML.

New to the Legion costumers who are approved are encouraged to work with their Detachment Leader to establish a Visual Guide for their costumes.
