SlyFox740[TK] Posted December 24, 2016 Report Share Posted December 24, 2016 (edited) Yup. I'm not exactly sure if it's blue tape or what underneath, because you can see overlaps over each blue piece. After all, in a recent interview the head of costuming (I can't remember if it was that person or what) said that they designed them as vents. I seen that interview as well. I believe it was at the red carpet premiere at the Pantages Theater in Hollywood, If I'm not mistaken the original costume designer from ANH intended the tube stripes to look like vents or filters of some kind. That combined with the advent of High-Definition video inspired the costume designers from Rogue One to actually make them into vents, I'm definitely okay with this as the concept of them being 'vents' or 'filters' is nothing new, there is even diagrams in Lucasfilm licensed books that detail the functionality of stormtrooper helmets that have been around since long before Rogue One ever came along. Also, very true, but one can make clean enough indentations that it could possibly pass basic. Especially since making sharp edges is very easy in hand sculpting, this effect can be easily achieved if one is hand sculpting the helmet from scratch. I haven't seen one like this yet, but it is possible. We don't want to be too reserved and strict with this CRL in particular, seeing as one can acquire certain characteristics and looks by other means not 100% accurate, and this is only basic we are talking here. What I would like to do is see if we can keep this one just a little bit flexible, like the Kylo Ren CRL. That one has multiple options for the outer robe fabric, and with other parts it is somewhat forgiving. I am hoping we could keep this one like that, especially since not a lot of people will notice the gaps between the blue and the recessed white areas in the tube stripes much. As long as one's helmet has the look, it should be ok, especially since the gaps are not very huge in the screen used helmet. I'm all for Basic costume requirement listings being simple and flexible but for level 2 EIB (expert infantry badge), and level 3 Centurion it's these exact kind of details that should be held to more and more scrutiny.
