Costume Reference Library for Smugglers/Pirates
Smugglers and assorted scum is a more free-form costume area of the club, but there will be guidelines to assure creative quality costumes are what represents The Dark Empire. These scoundrels wear largely mundane attire, and that is not OUR mundane, but Star Wars Mundane.
Examples of this type of costume range from Han Solo and Lando Calrissian, to Talon Karde and Mirax Terrik Horn. There are also appearances within video games including, but not limited to Star Wars Galaxies and Star Wars the Old Republic. We strongly recommend that you look through images of canon smuggler characters as well as images from the Old Republic game (as it is still live and able to be viewed as such) and SOME of the looks from Star Wars Galaxies, as that game had such a sandbox style we will not accept something on the grounds it was possible there, but there are some good costume elements in the wardrobe there to draw from. Short of sticking CLOSE to an already seen acceptable smuggler image, we cannot recommend loudly enough that a Work In Progress thread be used if you do one of these costumes. We do not want you wasting time and money on a costume idea that will not pass. We will accept both store bought and hand made elements of clothing, though all branding must be hidden or removed.
Most will need to be wearing boots. Most of these boots will require not having a laces. Can you use laces? POSSIBLY, but most of them we will say no to, so in the interest of your time and effort if you see laced boots you think will work, get a picture to the costume judges and we will let you know. Note: it may also be a yes/no based on the rest of the costume and it’s cohesiveness and overall quality. Blasters and other gear will need to pass the overall weapons and props guidelines.
May have a few scattered elements of armor, usually preferring to maintains speed and flexibility. For more details on Armor please check out the Armor Guidelines.
All costume elements but are subject to review of the quality and fit of the overall costume as well as on a component by component basis.
