  • 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.

Required Costume Components

The following costume components are present and appear as described below.


Blankwhite.gif Cowl
For 501st approval:
  • The cowl is made of opaque black fabric with a suitable drape.
  • It includes a correctly sized triangular over each temple, and the back of the head is unusually square in shape. These effects are best produced by attaching a support structure to the top of the white mask, which the cowl may then be draped over.
  • The cowl is attached to the upper edge of the white mask in order to block the top of the head from view.
  • The cowl drapes downward and rests on the costumer's chest, creating a closed oval frame around the face.
  • The cowl does not have to be attached to the cape, but a connection is acceptable.


SL nihiuls cotf mask.jpeg Mask
For 501st approval:
  • The stylized skull-like mask is white or off-white in color.
  • The mask extends from the lips to at least the top of the forehead, and may continue further beneath the cowl.
  • Two red stripes are located over the eye holes. Each red stripe extends upward with a slight taper.
  • A metallic silver forehead design consists of a two layered bar that goes from the top edge of the nose to the top of the forehead. It includes a silver oval in the center of the forehead and a fan shaped silver design.


SL nihilus cotf blackout.jpeg Face Covering
For 501st approval:
  • The costumer's face is blacked out behind the white mask. This may be accomplished with black body paint, a sculpted black mask, or a tight-fitting fabric blackout mask.
  • The eyes are hidden with black sclera lenses or the fabric of a blackout hood.


Blankwhite.gif Cape
For 501st approval:
  • The cape is made of an opaque black fabric.
  • It is sewn to the outer tunic at the front of the shoulders, using a gathered seam with very large stitching.
  • The cape hangs back over the shoulders, reaching nearly to the floor.


SL traya shirt.jpg Shirt
For 501st approval:
  • The shirt is made of opaque black fabric that is form-fitting and has long sleeves.


Blankwhite.gif Outer tunic
For 501st approval:
  • The outer layer consists of a somewhat fitted sleeveless tunic with a layer of heavy padding or armor hidden under the fabric of the chest area.
  • High loft quilt batting or a more rigid material may be used to create the padded look of the tunic chest.
  • The outer fabric is not sewn to the base of this padding; instead it hangs loosely over the stomach.


SL nihilus cotf gloves.jpeg Gloves
For 501st approval:
  • The black gloves reach at least halfway up the forearms.
  • The gloves do not have any straps, buckles, snaps, or extra decoration, and they should not have a large flare at the opening.


SL nihilusKOTOR skirt.jpg Skirt and Obi
For 501st approval:
  • The skirt is made of opaque black fabric that reaches nearly to the floor.
  • The skirt is made with enough material to create a gathered effect around the body, and is not tight or form-fitting.
  • The obi is approximately 4 cm in width.
  • If desired, the obi may be incorporated into the waistband of the skirt.


SL nihilus cotf boots.jpeg Boots
For 501st approval:
  • Plain black boots are worn. They do not have visible straps, buckles, or laces.

SL nihilus cotf saber.jpeg Lightsaber
For 501st approval:
