Members of Mandalorian Mercs Costume Club create and wear costumes of “Mandalorian Armor”, an iconic symbol of the Mandalorian warrior culture from the Star Wars™ Universe. The history of Mandalorian armor spans over 8,000 years in the Star Wars™ canon and “Legends” timelines, costumes you’ll find in the Mandalorian Mercs are created based on references found in these timelines. Our costumes strive to represent Mandalorian characters in the highest caliber of quality and realism while also allowing a great deal of creativity and individualism. It’s very uncommon that two Mandalorian Mercs member’s costumes look identical, but they all share the same traditional characteristics of Mandalorian armor/culture.
What are Mandalorians?
Mandalorians are the most notable warrior culture within the Star Wars™ universe. Sometimes famous, many times infamous, their allegiance is often times acquired by the highest bidder. Mandalorians can be found in almost every combat-oriented job in the Star Wars™ universe: Bounty Hunters, Mercenaries, and Bodyguards are but a few of the professions Mandalorians are famous for. Mandalorians are known for their high technology, traditional armor style, and ruthlessness in battle. Mandalorians value family above all else, and Mandalorian Mercs Costume Club has built on that value by giving back to local communities through charity and volunteer work. If you are interested in building your own Mandalorian armor to get involved, please see our costuming standards and/or membership application.
