  • This CRL is a work in progress.
  • This costume may be approved by GMLs, but until the library entry is complete, it is suggested that this character first be submitted to the appropriate DL/GML peer review 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 Lekku and Ear Cones
For 501st approval:
  • The lekku and ear cones are made with a skin-like material.
  • The coloring of the lekku and ear cones closely match the coloring used on the rest of the body.


Blankwhite.gif Body Paint
For 501st approval:
  • All areas of exposed skin are painted red.
  • Black tattoo patterns also cover all exposed skin.
  • While the Sith tattoo patterns on the arms, legs, lekku, and back tend to vary from one reference image to the next, there is a consistent and well established tattoo pattern on the face, chest, and stomach.
  • These consistent patterns are to be reproduced as accurately as possible, while the rest may be interpreted by the costumer based on reference images.


Blankwhite.gif Contacts
For 501st approval:
  • Special effects contacts in shades of red, yellow, and orange are worn to give the illusion of Sith eyes.
  • While considered an essential part of this character, contact lenses are not required for 501st acceptance. All persons wishing to utilize contact lenses are encouraged to first see their optometrist for a fitting.


Blankwhite.gif Bikini Top
For 501st approval:
  • The bikini top is made of black leather or a leatherette material.
  • Three lines run horizontally across the front. These lines may be created by cutting or tooling them into the leather, or they may be created by joining four separate strips of leather.

  • The back of the bikini is made of a wide strap with square cutouts spaced at even distances. The cutouts are backed with black material or leather.

  • Formfitting thigh-high boots may be worn, or the costumer may wear shorter boots paired with fabric or leather leggings that reach to the upper thigh.
