Sith Costume Standards

Sith
Costuming Requirements

Before buying material or a complete costume or beginning costume construction, please discuss these standards with your local director or Local Costume Consular. Standard custom Sith should resemble Jedi from the Clone Wars/Prequels era of Star Wars, however, they are to be in colors more natural to Sith. This will consist of tunic with under tunic, tabards and obi, pants or skirt, belt (with pouches, food capsules and covertec), tall boots, and an optional cloak. Refer to colors and design per item description. When considering use of “alternate colors,” these colors can be used as trim or moderate details, or as an accent to a Sith-color item. Alternate colors may also be used for up to 2 of 3 additional pieces: under tunic, tabards or obi.

Once a Costume has been submitted the Costume Consulars will begin the approval process; however, the Global Council may override the Costume Consulars decisions if they feel it to be necessary. Costumes must be accurate to screen and have a Star Wars look. No highly customized characters will be accepted. The general public must be able to identify you as Sith: not as an elf, Ninja, etc. with a lightsaber. For information on how to upgrade an already-approved costume, please visit our forum here.

Sith Tunic

Tunic should be long sleeved or sleeveless. Color may be grey, black, or red. Very dark shades of brown may be accepted as an “alternate color”; however, other earth tones and white will not be approved. No loud or bright colors, such as pink or neon colors, will be approved. Full or false inner tunic must be worn. They must be in a color scheme similar to that of the outer tunic. Dickie, full and mock turtlenecks, and mandarin style collars are approvable. Outer and inner tunics may be sleeveless. No visible t-shirts will be permitted. No karate/judo gi or gi-like construction allowed.

Sith Tabards

Tabards must extend at least to bottom of tunic, in front. Tabards can end at obi in rear, but may extend past tunic level if desired. Scarf-style “around-the-neck” tabards, and vest with attached tabards are also acceptable. Color may be grey, black, or red. Very dark shades of brown may be accepted as an “alternate color”; however, other earth tones and white will not be approved. One can also use dark greens, blues, and purples as “alternate colors”. No loud or bright colors, such as pink or neon colors, will be approved.

Sith Obi / Sash

Obi/sash should extend approximately 1.5″ above and below your belt. Color may be grey, black, or red. Very dark shades of brown may be accepted as an “alternate color”; however, other earth tones and white will not be approved. One can also use dark greens, blues, and purples as “alternate colors”. No loud or bright colors, such as pink or neon colors, will be approved.

Trousers / Skirt

Sith Belt

Belt must be black, grey, or red. Belt should be made of leather or leather-like material. All belts should be proportional to wearer and should be worn at abdomen level, rather than at the natural waist. No brown belts will be approved.

Style A: Similar to Prequel Jedi belt: Wide leather main belt with a thinner secondary belt on top of the main belt, and a movie-style buckle on the secondary belt. Thinner secondary belt cannot be loose or sag.

Style B: Similar to Luke’s utility belt / Imperial belt: Singular wide (approx. 2″) leather belt with a rectangular, octagonal or oval unadorned buckle.

Lightsaber

Lightsaber must be a battle ready lightsaber with a polycarbonate blade. Blades should be heavy grade; however mid grade blades may be used pending approval of local director. No toy lightsabers, such as Hasbro Ultimate FX or Master Replicas, will be approved. These sabers are fragile and do not meet our safety regulations. Sabers with sound are allowed, however, sound is not required. Double-bladed lightsabers are allowed. Red is the only approved color for Sith lightsabers.

Saber Clip

A covertec clip, D-Ring clip or any other Star Wars-looking clip is present to secure the lightsaber. Clip is to be attached to the belt on the hip.

Food Capsules
