Sith-Lord-Detachment.png

Description: Darth Maul, The Phantom Menace
Prefix: SL
Detachment: Sith Lord Detachment
Context: Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace
The apprentice of Darth Sidious, this Iridonian Zabrak heralded the return of the Sith in a flash of red and black.


The 501st approval requirements are listed in black.

The Sith Lord Detachment defines additional, optional levels of costuming excellence. In the page below, items listed under "For level two certification" are recommended features that will greatly improve the quality of the costume. These items are not required for 501st membership, but are highly recommended. Items listed under "For level three certification" are some of the highest level accuracy features for those who strive to be screen accurate. These items are also not required for 501st membership.

Also note that these two additional "certification levels" DO NOT correspond to the Advanced Standards program of the Sith Lord Detachment, and you are encouraged to visit the Sith Lord Detachment Forum for more information.


For 501st membership, only the requirements in black need to be met.


This Visual Guide has been reviewed by the detachment staff and the LMO team and is certified for use as a minimum approval guideline for GMLs. GMLs are free to approve this costume type.
Required Costume Components

The following costume components must be present and appear as described below for approval .

SL maul face.jpeg Face and Head
For 501st approval:
  • There are ten horns; one on top, seven crowning the head, and one on each temple.
  • Each horn has a unique shape, is not longer than two inches, and the color resembles that of rotting bone.
  • The head is shaved, but a high quality bald cap may also be employed.
  • There is a small, silver, ball-stud earring (real or magnetic) worn in the upper part of the left ear.
  • The facial paints are red and black with a matte finish and are to be applied in the specific pattern shown. Key stress areas are:
    • The ears (inside and out), behind the ears, around the eyes, and neck are completely black.
    • The lower lip is not black; it is mainly red with three black accents.
    • The bridge of the nose is predominately red (aside from the vertical black pattern in the center); the black section around the eyes does not extend that far onto the bridge of the nose.
    • The black section around the eyes covers and goes above the outer half of each eyebrow.
    • The two “lines” (that connect the inner eyebrows to the two horns off the center horn) are not straight. They start in predominantly a vertical manner, wind in an “S” fashion, after which they become vertical again just before connecting to the black tear-drop areas surrounding the two horns.
  • The teeth are treated as if molted and decayed with black and brown tooth enamels.
  • Masks of any type are NOT allowed for this character. Please contact the Legion Membership Officers AND the Detachment Staff for any questions concerning this matter.
For level two certification (if applicable):
  • There should be a little red at the base of the horns, but not so much that it is blatantly obvious.
  • The top (rear) horn should be the longest at approximately two inches, the ones crowning the head should be approximately one and one-half inches long, and the temple horns should be approximately one-half inches long.
SL maul eye.jpeg Sith Eyes
For 501st approval:
  • The contact lenses are described as a fiery yellow transitioning into a brilliant red.
  • While considered an essential part of this character, the contact lens requirement will be waived for 501st acceptance if the applicant cannot wear contact lenses for health related reasons. All persons utilizing contact lenses are encouraged to first see their optometrist for a fitting.


SL maul basetunic.jpeg Base Tunic
For 501st approval:
  • Black linen, blend, or a fabric with an equivalent appearance and weight.
  • The collar is ribbed with four quilted lines running around the neck to where the Tunic closes in front. It closes in a “V” fashion at the base of the neck and does not overlap.
  • There is no visible zipper, or attachment device of any kind, in full costume.
  • The length of the tunic extends to just above the knees.
  • The side seams are open from the waist down.
  • There is no open seam on the backside.
For level two certification (if applicable):
  • The Base Tunic should be linen, silk, or a blend.
  • The side seams should be open from just below the arms down; only two to three inches is actually sewn together.

  • Worn over the Base Tunic, has components of varying length, and is a lightweight black raw silk noile, Tussah silk, or fabric with an equivalent appearance and weight.
  • The one-piece sleeves are eased and tucked at the shoulder seam, and bloused to just below the elbow. The shoulder seam does not extend far past the top of the shoulder and onto the upper arm.
  • On the forearm, the sleeve is pleated and quilted in approximately one inch sections for a tailored fit to the arm, and extends to the wrist.
  • As with the Base Tunic, the side seams are open from the waist down, resulting in two different sections:
    • The lower panel formed in the rear is cut on a circle which extends to mid-thigh.
    • The front panels (two) extend to below the knees and are cut straight across the bottom.
  • Attached at the waist are two additional narrow panels (on top of the front panels) which extend to knee level.
  • The robe tapers towards waist level to close; actual closure is hidden by the belt.
  • (Allowed, but not recommended): The two narrow panels may be attached to the belt in the same manner as the loin cloth.
For level two certification (if applicable):
  • The lower panel formed in the rear should overlap the front panels slightly around waist level.
  • The front panels (not the narrow ones) should extend to the top of the boot.
  • The two narrow panels should be made of the same material as the Tabard.
  • The sleeves should have pleats at the shoulders.
SL maul tabbards.jpeg Tabard
For 501st approval:
  • Worn over the Sith Robe, is black crinkle/boiled silk or fabric with an equivalent appearance and weight, and wraps around the neck.
  • Approximately five and one half inches wide, extend to mid-thigh, and secured in place by the belt.
  • Both ends extend straight down (they do not cross over each other).

  • Over this wider belt are four, three-quarter inch, strips which are anchored with black rivets which are located slightly forward of the sides/hips.
  • The belt covers the closure of the Sith Robe and the starting point of the two narrow panels on the Robe, as it is worn at waist level.
For level two certification (if applicable):
  • The belt should be leather.
