    I'm gonna regret this... but I want one.

    Tunic:
    - I cannot see from the picture how it fastens. Definitely does not look like an overlap like the OT ones so not sure yet. Hooks maybe?

    - neck seal looks a lot like a tk one

    - yoke piece looks like a separate piece - much like Qi'ra's red Cape.

    - be still my beating heart - the female one has seams on the front of the tunic! Yay!

    Trousers:
    - evil point things

    Has anyone got any reference for the boots yet?

    Oh no by all means keep researching and discussing the costume!
    Worst case scenario, discussion just moves/shares across with another detachment somewhere further down the line.

    And while yes the FO petty officer shared a very similar uniform design to that seen on the Technician, "Technician" is very clearly the name given to this particular configuration with the helmet and all the other new accessories. The FO Gunner used almost exactly the same configuration as our FO TLJ Petty Officer CRL, they used the base uniform costume itself on several different ranks and roles I guess!

    Even if it comes up semi-annually, it's a fair question.
    CRL updates and overhauls are tough.  Tougher than I thought they'd be.  This is one to consider, but not at the front of the que.

    Let's start with the question of why Pryce gets one. Simply put her uniform is 100% different. Animated uniforms in general are 100% different from the movies.
    I can't just wear my normal green suit and say "I'm Kassius Konstantine", the rank bars and code cylinders are different shapes, the boots aren't perfect matches, the collars have those black marks on them, the hat disks and belts are totally different. There's nothing I can use from my movie uniform and have it be approved as an animated officer.
     
    What's different between Veers, Piett and Needa? Number of code cylinders and rank bar tiles. "But Ozzel has a mustache!" He sure does, but his uniform and accessories are exactly the same as every other officer in the original trilogy. "But Motti and Tagge don't wear hats!" You're right, we don't see them wearing hats and many others in A New Hope are hat-less. But the uniforms and accessories themselves are the same as all the others. "But Tarkin gets his own CRL!" You're right, he does, and about 95% of his uniform is exactly the same as all the others. But he has the dress shirt under his uniform and a very specific hair style and facial features. Admittedly that doesn't really seem like enough to warrant a whole separate CRL, but if I go troop an event as Veers, and halfway through I decide to change up my code cylinders and rank bar and walk back out as Piett that's a 5 second change. If I start an event as Tarkin and want to change to Jerjerrod I'd have to wash my hair, clean off my old man makeup, take off the dress shirt under my tunic, add a hat and change up all the other accessories. Not as simple/quick.
     
    But for arguments sake lets say the Detachment Leader decides to publish a Veers CRL. Great. Now people want Motti, and Tagge, and Piett both admiral and captain, and Khurgee... the list is endless and all we're doing between those CRLs is changing accessories, facial hair, and hair styles. That's just a nightmare for the detachment staff, LMO team, and webteam. 
     
    My proposed counter idea would be to have character specific galleries in the CRL similar to the TIE Pilot helmet detail examples - https://databank.501st.com/databank/Costuming:TI_TIE_Pilot_Helmet-detail
    Similar idea, just list named officers and show an image of their accessories and a small text description example: General Veers - X# of code cylinders in X style, rank bar is X rows with X red tiles and X blue tiles

    I understand the want to be an officially approved Veers vs. just a line officer, but there's nothing stopping any of us at a troop saying, "Hi, I'm General Veers" when talking to fans.

    Hello.
    This may exist somewhere as I know we've all talked about this before, but can we sticky a "Working List" of what CRLs are looking to be updated and maybe keep it updated quarterly?  Even it's it is just a brief outline of what's being worked on and what's in the pipeline.
    I'm curious what CRLs are being worked on currently and if there is discussion, and it's open to all members, would like to view it.  Just curious.

    Unsure if I'm reading this correctly but were you after a place for boots?
    I'm not sure ImperialBoots are doing FO boots anymore. I know that Crow Props (on FB) offers an FO style boot. JDOS props (also FB) might be worth approaching. There's also Magnoli Clothiers but those are pricey (very nice though). I believe the CRL model got his boots custom made so it may be worth reaching out to him for information there.

    GDMorti got a reaction from bjsavage7 in Facial piercings (covering them)...   
    Late to the party but for posterity: I cleared my Hux with a labret (center of lower lip) piercing and four ear piercings, two of which were stretched to a 4mm gauge.
    I took my submission photos with a very subtle, clear retainer in my labret, removed my unstretched ear piercings (they wouldn't just close up if jewellery was not worn in them for a day etc) and wore matte, fleshtone plugs in my stretched ears.
    This was not only never brought up as part of my approval process, but as I wore the same jewellery throughout my time trooping as Hux (before I removed almost all my facial jewellery around a year ago) it never came up. Not in the locker rooms getting changed, not by my garrison command staff, not by any of the members of the public I encountered on a troop.
    I believe that if you go to a concerted effort to remove, or in case of inability to remove, to conceal (stretched ears can either leave unsightly holes or even tighten up without their retaining jewellery, and you really shouldn't repeat the stretch process over and over because you took your jewellery out.. and any mouth piercings are renowned for healing to the point of painful or impossible jewellery re-insertion within a number of HOURS.) that the legion doesn't discriminate.
    It might be that you need to use fleshcoloured, low profile, clear or similar retainer jewellery in your eyebrow piercings. With some time and healing, you may be able to comfortably remove for the duration of a troop. At the very least, if you're a slow healer and it may take some time before you can trade out the jewellery, at least that gives you the time to work on your costume etc?

    Ahoyhoy!

    Looking really good! I have a couple of questions though after perusing the visual dictionary and trying to squeeze -anything- of use from the movie itself.

    Jacket:
    I notice that you've got a prominent cuff seam on the right sleeve, I can't see any sign of that on the jackets. :S Ditto for the rear seams on the sleeves. It doesn't help that solid rear views of this costume are like photos of bigfoot! Is that something that could be resolved? Or is there a reference I'm missing?

     
    Pants:
    Gosh the flaps on the outer thighs from TFA to TLJ really jump! They're a lot wider, which you seem to have nailed here.  It could just be the angle of the photos being taken but I'm unsure that the angle from the hips, out to the top of the flaps is quite steep enough?
    Additionally, the hip-straps (thats the only way I can think to describe those decorative strips of fabric on each hip!) should be present and clearly visible, due to the short length of the jacket.
    Aaand finally, it could be because taking photos of black uniforms is a nightmare but, are the thin pintucks on the front of each thigh present? You can see them on all pants of this particular design type in the visual dictionary!
    Unlike the TFA thigh-flaps on the outer thigh, I don't believe that the flaps are completely sewn together from the top to the bottom. Creating a really tight trouser leg with flap detail. Rather, they're sewn together for several inches at the top, stopping just after the angle out to the top of the flap ends, then are left open like jodhpurs style pants. Is this how yours have been made? It's really hard to tell on your photos! The curse of black uniforms! XD

    If possible, the wide hook and eye closures should be used for the front closure, rather than snaps or the "bra strap" style hook and eye closures which have been used here.
    In the visual dictionary images of Chief Petty Officer Unamo, you can slightly see the same metal closures used on Hux and Mitaka, just visible in the opening of her jacket.
    Thankfully these are easy to source and should be a case of replacing with the closures already there. In Europe they are wide hook and eye closures sold by Prym, I believe. In the USA, they are the same, but sold by Dritz.

    I agree, it's tricky to pin down solid screenshots proving this in TFA, however in TLJ you get a few reasonable shots of the back of the same style jacket with no seams present that I can tell:

    The very far right of the screen is the curvature of the back of someone wearing this style of jacket, you get a pretty good look at it if you check the movie. No seams at all that I can see.
