Tosche Station wants you, fan artists and costumers, to help them replace Mara Jade’s catsuit

Many of us Mara Jade fans have never really been big fans of character’s ‘default’ outfit, the leather catsuit. And Tosche Station has finally has it:

By the Gods of Kobol, we hate the catsuit. It’s objectifying, it’s demeaning. Mara’s a character whose innate personality makes her engaging. She doesn’t need to wear a skintight outfit that’s woefully ill-suited to combat to get fans to like her.

So, they’re having a contest! Come up with a more appropriate outfit for Mara and you could win some books. And/or the gratitude of Mara fans!

Here are a few existing fanworks that just may fit the criteria: Mara in robes, in a jacket, in a turtleneck, (!!) steampunk (well, at least it’s different,) in a flight suit and inspired by one of the Japanese covers. Be inspired, but don’t copy!

    Great idea! I remember Zahn originally mentioned she normally wore tunic/jumpsuit ensambles – so that’s what I’ll try to scetch (prepare for bad drawings LOL). But I guess the challengewill be to create a tunic that still allows her edge -and looks SW. That green outfit with plastic foam shoulderpads from VOTF looked like something from a LOTR roleplaying game…
