    Basic Entry Level Checklist - Post Imperial

    Edited by: MMCC Education Team

    This guide will present you with a basic checklist of items to look over when assessing your own, or someone else's Modern Era, Post-Imperial, costume, either via pre-app style pictures, or in person.  This guide is in no way a replacement for knowing & understanding the CRLs, it is merely a helpful quick-reference checklist.



    BASIC ENTRY LEVEL CHECKLIST


    Helmet:

    • Is the helmet appropriate for the selected era?
    • Is the wearers face obscured through the visor?
    • Is the helmet appropriately sized?
    • If the helmet is deemed to be too wide has the wearer compensated this with larger shoulder plates?

    **Post Imperial Pilots are not currently approvable by the MMCC


    Custom Helmet:

    • All question from the Helmet section should also be answered.
    • Is the T-Visor meeting the minimum requirements? (2/3 minimum vertical portion)
    • Are there enough era specific features present to keep it in the appropriate classification?


    Armor:

    • Does the plate selection match the Post Imperial Style?  i.e. Pre-Beskar, Beskar, HIM, Koska, Bo Katan chest plates
    • If using a modified plate, does it still utilize parts from the on screen references?
    • Are the torso plates sized lengthwise to end close to the wearers naval?

    • Is the back plate overlapping with waist items?

    • Is the back plate shaped correctly such that there is no lifting present?

    • Do you have the requisite number of plates below the belt? Total of 4 unless using Cod + Knees
      • Lowest count is Cod + Knees = 3
      • Hip Tassets, Shknee, Thigh, Knee, Butt, Kidney, Cod, and Shin each count as 1 plate

    • If cod is used, does it fit the wearer?
    • If cod is used, does the cod float away from the wearer's body?

    • If thigh plates are present are they sized, shaped and placed appropriately on the wearer?

    • Are all armor plates affixed to the user with permitted materials?

    • Is the weathering of the armor plates consistent across the entire wearer?
    • Is the weathering pattern deemed "realistic"
    • Is the level of weathering present on the armor consistent with the level of weathering found on the soft parts?
    • Does the color and patterns of the armor components contradict the requirements set out for them in the CRL?


    Gauntlets:

    • Does the wearer have some form of gauntlet present?
    • Does the material selected match the design requirement of the CRL?
    • If mounted weapon systems have been used do they appear to be functional? I.e. not just glued on
    • If there is a rocket cradle, does the wearer have something in it?
    • Is the weathering of the gauntlets consistent with the rest of the wearers kit?


    Soft Parts:

    • Is the flight suit sized correctly to the user to prevent excess bagginess?
    • Can you identify if it is a two piece flight suit when the wearer is fully kitted?

    • If the member is using a cape does it provide appropriate coverage?
    • If large weathering is present in the cape that you can see through, is there a back plate present underneath it?


    • Are the wearers boots of an appropriate style? I.e. Do they look functional for "battle"?
    • Do the boots have any exposed laces present?
    • Do the boots have a zipper that is not permitted/exposed? I.e. Only zippers that are color coded and on the inside seem of the boot are permitted

    • Are there any exposed zippers present? (Excluding the color coded zippers on the inside of boots)
    • Are there any visible attachment methods that should not be visible? (Pay particular attention to Velcro)
    • Has the wearer used elastic for any attachment method other than Knees & Elbows?

    Weapons:

    • Is the weapon an in-universe weapon? If so is it an appropriate representation?

    • If the wearer has converted a toy has it been adequately modified to no longer be identifiable as a toy?
    • If the wearer has converted a toy is it appropriately sized to the wearer? I.e. EE3 conversions where they are painted without being modified for size should not be permitted

    ** PLEASE Ensure that all items that are 3d printed have 0 visible print lines. This also includes waves in paint due to insufficient sanding and filling and excess filler leading to poor surface quality. **




    Summary:

    As mentioned above, this guide is a quick reference document, intended to give you a printable reference to use when looking over your own or someone else's costume.  However, it does not replace the CRLs, it merely provide you with a supplemental tool to use.
