As a reminder, we need full body images, front, back, and both sides, in good lighting, in the Deployment Application.

We have been getting applications with no pictures or only one picture, and we have to put the application in hold until we get the necessary pictures to review your costume.

Question about I guess re-deployment.

Say I have made another suit that I know is more accurate than the first but is a different source material, do I reapply to get a higher costuming tier for this one and have Suit A be Tier 1 and Suit B be a different (hopefully) tier? Should I hold off and let the backlog of Deployment Applications settle down? Asking for a friend. That friend is me.

In terms of "Membership Level," once you're a Deployed member, you are a deployed member and the level and number of deployed costumes does not influence that standing. Once your first suit goes through and you get your Deployment ID number you have that number for life, regardless if you only submit one costume or 10.

Now, each suit you submit is judged individually, so it is possible to have multiple suits judged/graded and be given different grades for each. You can submit multiples and have a Tier 1 ODST, a Tier 2 Halo 3 Mark VI, and a Tier 3 set of Reach Mark V armor, but you will only ever get your one unique Deployment ID number.

Cadet I recently put in an application for a new suit, as I have already had a suit approved about 2 years ago. I noticed there was no option for previous deployment, and I had to enter 3 Deployment ID numbers again, even though I do already have one. I just entered my current ID number in all 3 slots, hope that's ok. Thought I'd let you know. Also, let me know if my photos are ok. I submitted 4 or 5, all taken outside in natural light with an as best as I could find neutral colored wall.

Benton your pictures were exactly what we would like to see in a deployment application.

As a reminder, we need full body images, front, back, and both sides, in good lighting, in the Deployment Application.

We have been getting applications with no pictures or only one picture, or only "action shots" which feature only small,parts of the costume or have pieces of the costume covered up and we have to put the application in hold until we get the necessary pictures to review your costume.

Remember:
Full Body.
Front.
Both Sides.
Back.
Neutral pose.

Also? Make sure your gear is complete. We see lots of times where when we ask about a certain part like toe caps or helmets etc. that people say they have them but they aren't on in the photos. We need to see it all!

Maybe I'm completely blind, but where is the application form at? I can't seem to be able to find it.

Edit: Nevermind I'm dumb and found it. I was looking for "Forms" and it's under "Requests". Might want to consider changing the wording in the first post to make it a little clearer?

Looks like Cadet beat me to fixing that up. Thanks for bringing it to our attention, Dagger06!
