I’m involved with the 501st Legion which is an all-volunteer organization formed for the express purpose of bringing together costume enthusiasts under a collective identity within which to operate.
The Legion seeks to promote interest in Star Wars through the building and wearing of quality costumes, and to facilitate the use of these costumes for Star Wars-related events as well as contributions to the local community through costumed charity and volunteer work.
Firstly, I would like to ask you if you wouldn’t mind me using your depiction of Mara Jade from the Star Wars Essential Reader's Companion as the basis for a new costume for use within the 501st Legion?
The Legion has very strict costume development criteria, and I will need to develop a full submission outlining the costume build, components used etc etc.
One of the requirements is to have a new costume approved is that the character appears on or in an officially authorized Star Wars publication, ie The Star Wars Essential Reader's Companion.
Secondly, the other criteria is that there are full body front/back/side references to the costume. Therefore I was wondering if you may still have any concept sketches of the character you may be willing to provide me in my quest to bring this character to life.
I'm after a full sleeve length costume as I have a full sleeve tattoo, and need a costume like this to cover my tattoo.
If a fee &/or usage agreement is required for me to use them, I’m very willing to discuss this with you.
