Though, Mette, you look badass! Once you go red, you will become super awesome!
I like how I never need to write what I'm thinking silently when OP's around.

You are doing great, we need more pics and yes, follow the CRL very closely :D I know I'll do it. Full body paint is a lot more work than formfitting suit but even if Morten is busy there'll be maaaany people helping you with that at the events. ;) And that goes for everyone, you too Karin.

probably not.. not in 501st anyways..
no-one have ever worn this costume following the five-oh-first rules.. and before any new costume gets an okay, a set of standards has to be layed down.. and that takes awhile..
but offcourse.. just about anyone can paint themselves how they feel, pay their way in, and do wtf they want.. if they want to.. regardless of 501st policies :-P
at a loss for words:-/

Not to forget it may not be the most child friendly costume(and Mette is quite aware of that).

I don't see the problem! Darth Talon is a well known character in the star wars universe (one of the few EU characters that I actually think is worth looking at) and she dresses in a certain way, why should the 501st Legion apply cencorship on that costume? If a character has more than 3 references it's allowed! It's so american double morality saying costumes has to be child friendly I can puke at it! The character is made for the more adult fans, so what? Everything doesn't have to be child proof. Mette: You will kick ass in that costume! :D

It's like a statue of Padmé I have... It was revoked and remade because you could see her stiff nipples! So what??? I didn't even notice those until I read about it. Now I can't stop watching them :)

And really need to get Mette to log in and read her own topic more often, instead of looking me over the shoulder :roll:

when a new costume is made.. it has to meet certain requirements..
think Emma had quite the challenge getting her EU Ventress accepted..
in this Talon-case.. body paint.. wich in itself is insane.. i have seen Karin's Talon first hand.. about 5 meters away you cant even tell its a painted lycrasuit, and closer, you had to look at armpits and knees etc to see the lycrasuit bunch up like sweaters.. i have only managed to see 2 pictures out of probably 100 that had some kind of wierd effect caused by the camera wich caused her lycrasuit to look orange..

personally i wish there was some type of elite status on that particular suit that would allow her to troop with 501st with a lycrasuit, but an elite status suit would be painted.. but thats just me.. i'm just a nerd...

You might want to update your information Øyvind, we have several approved Talons in 501st.
