Okay, so I think I'm just about ready for an app! I'm missing two greebs, but I have them both in hand, just not attached. I showed up at my buddy's son's Star Wars themed birthday, so I took my pre-app pics in their basement.

Looking good, dude! Well done!

Where's your sidearm? Your holster is riding a little high.

Also, I'm sure it's the lighting, but I just want to make sure, what color is your flightsuit? I'm not seeing any blue.

Well, I was at a one-year-old's birthday, so I opted with no guns, but since my sidearm is still the innacurrate one, upon sending in my app I'll be electing the weaponless Boba until I get a Pulce.

The FS has the ability to appear grey in most pictures. If it helps at all, the Detachment leader of the BHG said it's spot on, and some pics from RICC show the blue. See this post:


Got my flightsuit! After some tailoring, I  put it on with my Deathwatch boots:









I realize it looks grey, but it is blue, and I tried to prove it:

Wow yeah that flightsuit looks great.

I recommend applying here with the innacurate sidearm. We've passed it before because it's still kinda common in the community.

You really want an incomplete costume in this club?  Aren't your standards a little higher than that?

I don't understand your opposition here, Naglium. Would I rather have an applicant apply with a sidearm than without a sidearm at all? Yes, I would.

If he's going for a Canon movie costume, I would hope you would want it to be complete and not missing pieces.

It's not like it's a nintendo zapper or anything right?

It stays in the holster almost always.  Most people don't even realize Fett has a sidearm.

For the record, Naglium, I totally understand your concerns. That being said, I don't think allowing a variation of the sidearm (one that looks extremely similar to the screen used one when holstered) is a major concession to movie accuracy.  Sure, in a perfect world, all Fett costumers would strictly adhere to canon. You show me 1 Fett that is 100% movie accurate and I'll show you 100 who aren't in any number of ways.  At a certain point, we have to think about what sort of deviations from the movie we are and are not willing to accept when considering what factors really capture the look of the character.  The sidearm is one area that I am willing to make a small compromise on, especially if it's the sidearm that was the standard in the Fett community up until very recently.  I don't equate using this sidearm with having an "incomplete" costume just as I wouldn't fault someone who didn't have a dental file on their jetpack or someone who didn't wear the scuba harness or someone who wears a duck cloth cape.  These are all deviations from movie canon, but they are deviations that are acceptable because while the materials used to make them may not be completely accurate or something may be different or missing, they maintain and do not detract from the iconic "Fett" look.

If you think I'm very wrong and you would like to see that policy changed, I encourage you to PM Seugtai with you concerns.  We actively discuss all CRL concerns and community involvement is how things like this get changed.

I'm sure it was gonna be the orange Kenner Han blaster from the 90s... I mean, clearly he hasn't paid attention to detail at all here.... The costume is just... I'll take care of it for you, so you don't have to worry about it... you have my address just ship it whenever ;P
For real though, anyone who tackles a Canon costume earns my respect. no exception here. bravo
