Ooook, my wife is preparing a Royal guard costume for the upcoming Dragon con, we have the Helmet on the way and she will be making her own robes.

Just a few questions, what about the under robes, boots and gloves, color wise. And what does everyone do about the force pike?

One other question... are Shadow guard not considered Viable as a costume for membership in the 501st?

Ok I personally have done this costume. The Gloves are Leather and the boots are a suede. If you need anymore info on this costume drop me a line.

At this time shadowguards are not accepted into the 501st. If you are interested in knowing more on that costume it also has its own sub forum.

Good Luck.

Check out the costume standards in each movies sub-forum for details on how each is different. In short, the under-robes are basically the same for all 3 movies, and should be dark burgandy color or similar. Gloves should be red, material & style varies by movie. Boots should be red suede for ROTJ or ROTS. Black jack boots for AOTC style. Robes should be red velvet with a burgandy lining that matches your underrobes. Style of robe varies by movie. Belt should be a burgandy sash that matches your underrobes. Rope belt also needed for ROTJ. Helmet is the same for all three movies. ROTS technically has a different helmet, but no sculpt for it currently exists so the standard helmet is accepted.

Since you asked about the under-robes....they should look not unlike the Vietnamese Ao Dai pattern. This consists of: long pants (which you will see very little of); and a top that has a mandarin collar, long sleeves, and a "skirt" that hangs down from the waistline to the ankles, with slits on either side to allow movement. The "skirt" can be attached to the tunic-like top, or separate, with the waistline hidden beneath the belt. Ao Dai patterns are available online. Various LOTR-style elf costume patterns can also be used to acheive the look.
