Sith Archivist

Little is known about these keepers and seekers of the arcane knowledge sought after by all wishing to become closer with the Force. These members of the Sith Order have fully embraced the dark side of the Force and seek to use it to become the most powerful beings  in the galaxy.

Outer Tunic (when not using a dress):

  • Sleeved. Sleeves should hang at least to the wrist when the arms are held down at the side.
  • Martial Art/Japanese style tunics/pants/skirt, in most cases will not be approved. Please consult with Nes’ari.
  • OTs can be sleeveless as long as an Inner Tunic (IT) is worn and is long sleeved. No bare-armed Sith Archivist.
  • OTs have a collar approximately 2 inches (5 cm) wide.
  • OTs length may be variable and can extend to the floor. OTs minimal length should be long enough to cover the wearer’s buttocks and crotch area. Mid-thigh is optimal. OTs are generally made in a fashion where there is a full skirt (attached to the main body of the OT) where the seam is hidden by the obi.
  • OTs minimum length must cover crotch and buttocks, when wearing pants.

Dress: (Example: Atris):

  • Like OTs, they are floor length.
  • When a dress, no skirt and pants are needed.

Inner Tunic:

  • May be a full tunic or a false tunic (Dickie, meaning a collar, neck portion and sleeves may be added to a shirt or t-shirt) or dickies or tunics/shirts with a Mandarin collar
  • If the OT is sleeveless, then an IT must be worn and must have long sleeves.
  • IT have a collar 1.5-2 inches (5 cm) wide.

Pants or Skirts:

  • Pants should be nondescript without decoration. Traditional pants pockets are permitted, but must not be visible (e.g., hidden under the skirt of the OT).
  • No cargo pants.
  • No hakamas.
  • No Corellian Blood Stripes (Han Solo Pants).
  • Skirts (those separate from the OT) are floor length.


  • There are geometrical, angular pattern on the tabards. Rounded patterns are discouraged. Acute angles and sharp edges in design are preferred. Please present the pattern design for approval prior to Inquisitors.
    • Sith text may be used. Must be of in universe used fonts such as Sith Prophecy or Kittat.
  • Must extend at least to or past the bottom hem of the OT on the front. The back tabards may end under the obi or may extend to (or past) the bottom hem of the OT (or may be the same length as the front tabards). This guideline is obviously for the more traditional length OTs. For OTs that are longer (past the knee or to the floor or where a full length skirt is worn), the tabard length would be more variable. Lower thigh minimum.
  • Front tabards do not overlap, but can touch under the obi. Tabards may cross in the back.
  • Scarf-style tabards, having an around-the-neck design, are permitted.
  • A single front tabard, centrally located (covering the crotch and/or buttocks area) is permitted.
  • The end of the front tabard(s) may have a variable design (square, rounded, triangular, octagonal, etc.)
  • Leather or pleather tabards permitted.
  • Tabard width should be from the seam at the collar of the OT to the edge of the shoulder and be a similar width as the obi. A general width to use would be 4 to 6 inches wide (depending on one’s height and build). Common sense should be used in selecting tabard width, and the width is proportional to the costumer’s body.

Obi (sash):

  • The obi wraps around the waist, and is approximately 5 to 7 inches wide and/or of a similar width or slightly larger than the tabards. Also relevant to the size of the wearer.
  • Obi closures (Velcro, snaps, etc.) should not be visible.
  • Leather or pleather Obi are permitted.
  • Obi may have borders.

Option A: Skirt:

  • Skirts (those separate from the OT) are floor length.

Option B: Pants

  • Pants should be non-descript without decoration. Traditional pants pockets are permitted, but must not be visible (e.g. hidden under the skirt of the OT).

Boots or shoes:

  • Brown or Black Boots – Leather or leather-like (no rubber boots).
  • Mid-calf, but not above the knee (motorcycle boots, or “engineer” boots, ~14 inches). Extensions are allowed).
  • No visible laces or outside zippers. When necessary, inside zippers are permitted.
  • Straps & shin-spats are allowed but not required (though can be used to cover laces and zippers). Must be securely attached so they do not droop if visible.
  • Buckles are permitted, but should complement the boot and not detract from the overall look of the Jedi costume.
  • Low-heeled 2 inches maximum.
  • Mini-Chaps (not above the knee) are allowed.
  • Tabi are not allowed.


  • No toy sabers, no Ultimate FX short saber.
  • Metal hilt lightsabers are preferred, though custom lightsabers constructed of other materials are permitted.
  • Blade colors accepted are: reds 
  • Double-blade sabers are allowed.


Sith Robe or Cloak (Cape):

  • Large Sith robe or cloak (cape) with attached over-sized hood, similar to Prequel movie canon robes/cloaks.
  • A hooded cape with side splits is permitted.
  • The hood should be large enough so that (1) when the hood is up, the sides of the hood drape to extend to or cover the shoulders and (2) when down, the tip of the hood should fall near the small of the back (or lower).
  • The sleeves should be full and flare larger on the hand end. When the hand end of the robe sleeve is closed, the length of the end of the sleeve should be at least half the length of the costumers arm (or longer). The circumference of the robe sleeve opening (at the hand) should be at least as long as the sleeve (from shoulder to the hem).
  • The overall body of the robe or cloak/cape should be full.
  • The length of the robe or cloak/cape should be hemmed no shorter than two inches off the floor.


  • Standard Jedi/Sith pouches are approvable.
  • Fastener should be hidden.
  • Pouches as seen on Jedi Librarians are not permitted.
  • Should match the color of the belt.


  • Preferred the pyramid shaped sith holocrons, but jedi versions can be allowed.

Sith Parang
A parang was a heavy-bladed weapon, sometimes made of glass, which was used by various sects of ancient Sith. Its main advantage was that it could be thrown at an enemy and returned to the thrower, similar to a boomerang. Originally, the curved blade of the parang was used as a gardening tool to cut away undergrowth, but it later became used as a weapon among the Sith Order. The weapon was used by the ancient Sith Purebloods.
