I will be perfectly blunt here...

1. Typing out "get on with it already" does absolutely nothing to encourage anyone to want to do anything more than they are already volunteering to do.

2. A call for input has been made numerous times and all that detachment command has received is crickets here on the forum. If you are so very eager for this costume, why is it there has been little to no discussion here where it should be?

3. While it is great that there is enthusiasm, the fact is we are not rushing something out just for the sake of saying there is a CRL. If other detachments wish to do so, that is their prerogative.

4. The movie itself has only been out since the later part of December 2017 and prior to the release little to no imagery of this costume was published. This is nothing like the The first order TK or the shore trooper that were on display multiple times at major conventions where full 360 degree hi-res photos were readily available months before the movie was ever released.

Now, all that said, if you are so very eager to have a CRL worked on, I strongly suggest you put your actions where your mouth is and start contributing instead of being outright demanding of the detachment staff volunteers.

For whatever reasons, I understand tension and emotions may be running high for both sides regarding this.

I feel it would be a timely reminder for all involved to reflect on how the typed words may be received before posting, lest what can be a good conversation actually degrade (which it has not, yet may fairly quickly).

Agreed 100%, this point has been made.

Agreed that discussion should be on here. Unfortunately Facebook seems to be king these days. People want the instant response that Facebook gives. Hence the drop in traffic across all detachments and boards. Sadly, the days of keeping all the info and discussion in 1 place are long gone.

3. While it is great that there is enthusiasm, the fact is we are not rushing something out just for the sake of saying there is a CRL. If other detachments wish to do so, that is their prerogative.

If something had been rushed out, it would be done already. Not sure what point you’re making here. It’s obvious that it isn’t being rushed out.


4. The movie itself has only been out since the later part of December 2017 and prior to the release little to no imagery of this costume was published. This is nothing like the The first order TK or the shore trooper that were on display multiple times at major conventions where full 360 degree hi-res photos were readily available months before the movie was ever released.

They were. But the photos that were take. In LA by Luke and Dawn are almost as good as the ones taken of the shoretrooper and FOTK.

Now, all that said, if you are so very eager to have a CRL worked on, I strongly suggest you put your actions where your mouth is and start contributing instead of being outright demanding of the detachment staff volunteers.


I’d like to. What more can people do to assist. It’s pointless posting photos of the costume as they will not be as good as the high res ones from LA.
Maybe if the parts of the crl that are ready are posted, the remaining parts can be worked on by others.
I’m not sure why the draft by Dawn can’t be used as a starting point.

I for one appreciate all the hard work everyone is doing. Is there any possibility that we could reach out to Michael Kaplan or anyone on his team? Seems far fetched, but hey someone should say it.

With all the costumes that are made in the movies. It really honestly be hard for them to "remember" what said fabric was from one of a thousand costumes in th movie.

Agreed, I'm just saying it's worth a shot. I would definitely expect nothing out of it, but if we get any response it keeps us moving forward.

Just a polite request if there are any updates on the thoughts of the research on skirt fabric and under garments that a few of us have been doing. I’d like to get the soft parts done to go with the hard parts that are finished. Thanks.
