I fuly agree, Ky-Wan should be changed to something more... less... something else. lol. No, not really. people get used to it, after some time.
When I first joined the Assembly, I too asked specifically for blade questions, and the colors as stated were guidelines, so they said at the time, and that "blueish colors" was accepted. My original lightsaber was cyan. I now have an amber color, and a yellow blade. I like the look (and originality) of yellow blades!
Mainly, as long as it is not too red (or pink) you should be OK.
As for cross-approval of a costume, its always complex - yet doable. I am no longer active in my RL base, and the standards have changed greatly on their end. I sadly cannot give more details on that end. As a general note: you're always better to keep away from black for Jedi, even if it is "tolerated" it is still not best. Same way having "minimal requirement" is ok, but not "excellent"...
Making a jedi outfit is fun, but wearing it is even better, keep up the good work!
I like the look of a d-ring. Its more "authentic" at least in my "old timer star wars" mind... But, honestly, as a costumer, you will want a covertec clip. The d-ring leads to lightsaber falling off too easily. And the models that aren't easy to unclip are... well, not easy to unclip and makes them unpleasant for the Jedi.
Covertec clip are awesome. I've tried other types of clips (like motorolla) and they work OK, but the way Covertec made theirs is awesome, You can draw your saber with only one hand, yet it won't unclip itself.
Now... this is just for preferences... as long as you have "something" to hold your saber, its all good, and completely acceptable.

Almost all the members who were not costume experienced ask similar questions when they first started, there is no shame in that, as an old teacher of mine used to say, "to remain silent is to remain ignorant of the answer", a good question is always a tool towards the information that you need.

Thank you, Jedimom!
Question #1: I'm confused by the color standard. What is the absolute lightest color I can have? The costume I scrapped was black with white pants and under-tunic, and I'd like to do something similar, using dark brown with whatever the lightest color I am allowed to use for pants and under-tunic.
Question #3: Are there any differences (besides the color requirements) between the NEW Rebel Legion Generic Jedi and the current Jedi Assembly costume requirements such that acceptance into one group will preclude acceptance into the other with the same costume?
Question #4: May I wear eyeglasses with my costume for official trooping, official photos and costume submission?
