Mandalorian Mercs Costuming Club
|The Mandalorian Mercs Costume Club is the world's premier custom Mandalorian costume organization. With 35 chapters in 7 countries around the world, members of Mercs take part in a wide range of activites, including local and international conventions, charity events, and fan gatherings. Founded in March 2007, the Mercs grew rapidly from a core of 5 members to now over 350 across the globe.|
The goal of Mandalorian Mercs is to provide a nexus for Mandalorian costumers, giving them a collective identity and representation within the Star Wars costuming community. We are passionate about the armor we wear, and use it not only to promote the Star Wars universe, but also to explore the evolution and implementation of the Mandalorian costume as it appeared in film and print.
Though Boba Fett was the 'first' Mandalorian, he certainly wasn't the only one, and as the world of Star Wars grows and defines itself, so too does the Mandalorian costume and 'culture.' We are unique among Star Wars fan groups in that our chosen allows for your imagination to be let loose through costuming.
Prospective members are encouraged to be creative while staying within the club's costuming standards. While we pride ourselves on being an inclusive organization, we do ask that you put forth as much effort as you can in building your costume. We take pride in our ability to assist both novice and veteran costumer alike, and have an extensive library of resources and an active and helpful forum to direct your efforts.
Please feel free to explore our site, browse photos of our members, and join us on the forums-- and of course, we'd love to welcome you into our ranks as an official member if you feel a Mandalorian costume would be right for you!
