REVANITE CULTIST

REVANITE CULTIST


“Originally founded on Dromund Kaas during the Galactic Cold War, the Order of Revan was a cult dedicated to following the pragmatic, balanced teachings of Revan, the Prodigal Knight who started as a Jedi, then became a Sith. Following this cult and their heretical beliefs (including the belief that the Sith Emperor had been killed and replaced by Revan himself) was forbidden by Imperial law; still, this cult claimed members from all levels of Imperial society, including Sith Lords, mercenaries, soldiers, and officers. Near the end of the Galactic Cold War, they were known to have a base in the wilderness outside of Kaas City, near Lord Grathan’s estate.” – As seen in Star Wars: The Old Republic


Materials should primarily be a medium to lightweight fabric, in shades of burgundy, dark grey, and indigo. The dark grey material should have a matte finish, while the burgundy and indigo /blue may be matte or have a sheen  finish. 

Hood (Optional)

  • If a hood is present, it should be in a shade of burgundy to match the rest of the costume.  Hood is a completely separate component — not attached to the robes in any visible manner. Hood is fairly form fitting around the back of the head, comes down in front to about 2 inches above the belt level, and in back to about 3 inches above belt level. 
  • There is a 3 inch wide indigo tabard with lighter blue edges that loops around the back of the hood at collar level and comes down the front on the outer edges of the hood. The blue tabard is marked with a geometric silver pattern as seen in the reference images.  This can be achieved with fabric paint, embroidery,  printing, or thin strips of light grey fabric stitched into place. If using fabric paint, please be aware that the design must not look “drawn on”. Tabards should be approximately 3 inches wide. 2 of the front facing and the one rear centered diamond shape in the geometric pattern must have burgundy fabric centers, as seen in the reference images.
  • On either side of the costumer’s head, there is an armored elongated hexagonal piece of gold-coloured material on the outside of the hood.  There is a dark border running along the sides and bottom, approximately one half inch from the edge. . Whatever material is used must give an armored appearance.
  • On the front of the hood, over the costumer’s forehead, there is a small rectangular piece of indigo fabric, of the same material as the tabards. Coming down either side of the front portion of the hood from this, is a strip of black fabric inset approximately one half inch from the leading edges of the hood. The black stripe continues down to the lower corners.
  • On the back portion of the hood, there is a black lining sewn into the hood that extends one inch to either outside edge of the hood. This black edging continues up over the shoulders and down the front to mid-chest level, where it angles behind the edge of the blue tabard, coming out the other side and continuing downwards at an angle to the inside bottom corners of the hood.
  • On the lower front inside corners of the hood, are two amber colored buttons 1 inch in diameter with gold edges.
  • The burgundy back portion of the hood has a black geometric pattern of stitching as seen in reference images. In the middle there is a “T” shaped section of indigo fabric, matching that used for the tabard. This has 5 lines of black stitching running vertically through it as per reference images, giving it a quilted appearance.

Tunic

  • Inner tunic is form-fitting, and long-sleeved in a matte dark grey material. It should extend below the belt to approximately the widest portion of the costumer’s hips.
    • Optionally, this inner tunic has contrasting black sheen-finish stripes 1 inch in width running down the top of each sleeve to wrist, and three stripes one half inch wide of the same material running vertically from the belt line to chest level. 
  • There is a short-sleeved burgundy outer tunic that goes over top of the grey base layer. The burgundy fabric should have a matte finish.
    • On this tunic, there are contrasting pale pink strips of fabric running along the seams and edges of the tunic, and also forming a geometric pattern on the upper back portion, matching reference images. 
    • On the back of this outer tunic, there is an angled cutout at the base of the neck that is a lighter red colour than the rest of the tunic.
    • This tunic ends one to two inches above the belt, creating a ‘crop top’ appearance.
  • The upper front panel of the tunic over the chest is dark burgundy, with cream, gold, silver, pale pink, bonze and dark grey-coloured inserts to match the reference pictures.
  • There is a light grey fabric panel that goes from approximately the middle of the costume’s chest to below the belt, passing underneath the belt, ending at approximately the crotch. This panel has defined edging stitched along each side and the top, as well as an angled pattern stitched into it just below the belt line, as seen in reference images.

Belt

Version 1

  • The belt appears to be of burgundy fabric, with an indigo stripe running along the entire length of the belt.
  • There is a round buckle at the front of the belt that blends into the material of the belt and continues with the colouration.
  • There are no pouches present on the belt.
  • The burgundy fabric has a bunched appearance centering towards the buckle. 
  • There are four vertical pleats stitched into the belt about ¼” wide, two in the front and two in the back. 

Version 2

  • The belt appears to be of burgundy fabric. There is an indigo stripe centered along the entire length of the belt.
  • There are six decorative buckles on the belt, at roughly-equal intervals. The discs appear to be metallic, and are primarily burgundy, with a silver ring on the outer edges and a silver dot in the centre of the discs. They are engraved with a spiral pattern as seen in the reference photos. The discs are positioned roughly centred on the belt, extending over the edges of the belt.
  • The buckle is covered by a square block “buckle”. It is burgundy in colour, and appears to be fabric, with the left side of the fabric layered over the right like a tunic. This has pink/pale red edging on the fabric.

Gloves

  • Gloves reach to about a third of the way up the costumer’s forearm. They may be form fitting or flared in appearance. 
  • The primary colour should be a dark grey matching the inner tunic, with burgundy, indigo, pale gold, and light grey fabric accents sewn to create geometric patterns as seen in reference photos. 
  • Gloves must be leather and full-fingered. No fingerless gloves permitted.
  • Any colour combination following the reference images is permitted.
  • Optionally may be decorated with one amber colored button matching those on the hood, positioned either centered on the back of the hand, or centered on the outer arm at top of glove. 
  • Optionally may have an armored gold band at wrist matching the material and color of the armored plates on hood.

Skirt

  • The  skirt is full-lenth (to the ankles), and is made in 3 main layers. The main portion is burgundy in colour, with an indigo overskirt layer coming to approximately just below the knees, and a second burgundy overskirt layer coming to about the middle of the thigh. The layers appear to pleat slightly at sides near the waist, but should lay flat in front and rear.
    • The overskirt panels are not full circles, but open in the front of the skirt, featuring a shaped cut-out pattern that matches the reference images.
  • On the main (bottom) skirt layer, there is a panel of paler red/pink fabric that comes down the centre of the skirt at an angle towards the bottom hem. Darker burgundy stripes are used to create borders and geometric patterns on this layer as seen in reference images. 
  • The indigo layer has a burgundy border, and features a bottom edge in a matte gold colour that goes all the way around the skirt. This edge is also bordered in dark burgundy.  On the back side of the blue layer, there is a wide panel of dark burgundy fabric with two vertical lines of lighter fabric matching the color of the main skirt layer. 
  • The uppermost burgundy layer has two triangles of pink fabric in the front corners of the centre cut-outs. This layer does not completely encircle the costumer, but is cut off in the back centre again. There are two more pink triangles at the edges, and dark burgundy lines following the patterns in the reference images.
  • There is a pale grey square panel in the centre of the back, starting under the elongated grey portion of the inner tunic and going down to just below the costumer’s buttocks.

Boots

  • Boots are plain, black leather, with no decorative stitching and a conservative heel.  They must extend above the ankle.  Chelsea style boots are acceptable. 
  • Optionally the boots may be a burgundy coloration matching the rest of the costume.

Belt Tabards (Optional)

  • Two tabards attached under the belt, one at front and one in rear. Tabards are only worn with V.2 of the belt. They anchor to the belt behind the front and rear two metallic discs of that belt version. 
  • Front tabard is a rectangle of burgundy fabric, about ⅔ the width of the costumer’s body, starting at the belt and going as far down as the knees (approximately).
    • There are two pale gold sheen panels that start from the buckle of the belt and run down the entire length of the tabard, dividing the tabard into three roughly equal segments. These pieces must resemble the reference images in shape. There are two bronze vertical lines topped with dots centered in each gold panel. The gold panels are bordered with bronze fabric approximately one quarter inch in width. 
    • There are two small indigo colored stripes that run up from the bottom corners of the tabard and disappear under the gold pieces at a 45 degree angle.
    • The tabard’s sides have an indigo border approximately one half inch in width.
  • Rear tabard is another rectangle of burgundy fabric.
    • There are two large gold sheen segments that take up most of the tabard. One starts at the belt and goes about ¾ of the way down. The other is a smaller trapezoid shape on the bottom hem. These are also decorated with bronze embroidered lines ending in dots as seen in the reference images. The bottom trapezoid has a bronze “T” shape sewn into it as well.  Both gold panels are bordered by bronze fabric one quarter inch in width. See reference photos. 
    • Optionally the top gold segment on the rear tabard may have a slightly contrasting gold vertical stripe approximately 1 inch in width down the middle. 
    • The rear tabard has the same indigo border as the front tabard.
    • On the bottom edge are two trapezoidal cutouts of indigo, one half inch in height and 2 inches long. 

Shoulder Armour (Optional)

  • Shoulder armour is a matte dark grey or brown.
  • There are two main portions to the armour. The bottom portion wraps halfway around the bicep, but does not fully encircle the upper arm. The top portion sticks up at a slight angle, and is curved inward.
  • There are contrasting grey lines engraved on the armour to match the reference images.
  • Armour is made of a hard material and appears to be about a centimetre thick. Leather, 3D prints, or thermoplastics are permitted materials. Material should be lightweight so as not to cause sleeves to sag. 
  • There is no outwardly visible attachment method.  Velcro, snaps, or magnets are suggested.  A harness may be worn under the outer tunic to avoid weight pulling down on the sleeves of the tunic. 

Weapons (Optional)

  • As members of the Revanite Cult came from all levels of Imperial society, multiple weapon types are permitted.  Any blaster pistol, blaster rifle, vibrosword, or lightsaber from the Old Republic era of the Empire is permitted. Reference images of example weapon types will be shown.
  • Lightsaber blades may be red, yellow, purple, or orange.
