So you want to be a Jedi… or Sith? Don’t worry there’s room in the galaxy for all kinds of warriors! As long as you fight in the service of Community, Charity, Costuming, and Stage Choreography, then Saber Guild is the place for you.
WHAT IS REQUIRED TO JOIN?
You must be 18 years of age or older (13+ parental guardian must also attend), create a high-quality Saber Guild approved Jedi or Sith costume and a stage combat quality lightsaber. You must also be able to attend our Friday night lightsaber classes located at 430 West 25th Street.
I’M IN! SO WHERE DO I START
Start off by coming to one of our Friday night lightsaber classes and meet our Temple to see if this is a good fit for you. Once you do that head over to SaberGuild.org and sign up on our forums so you can take your first steps into a much larger world of lightsaber choreography and to begin designing your costume.
WHERE CAN I GET A COSTUME?
Before purchasing a costume or beginning costume construction (or even buying materials)- before you do anything, it is in your best interested to contact our Local Costume Counselor Anne Richmond at EmpireSaberGuild@gmail.com to discuss the Saber Guild global costume standards and make sure you fully understand what we’re looking for. Saber Guild has some strict costume regulations to ensure that all our members look as though they just stepped out of the movies. We don’t want you to inadvertently spend money on something that won’t be approved.
GREAT I GOT THIS JEDI COSTUME LAST HALLOWEEN! CAN I WEAR THAT?
We would love to see some photos of it to start our conversation, but please remember Saber Guild has strict costume regulations and Star Wars costumes that are commercially available in stores or online may not be acceptable for membership. With that in mind contact our Local Costume Counselor Anne Richmond at EmpireSaberGuild@gmail.com to see if your costume meets Saber Guild standards, and if not she can start you down the right path to your costuming destiny! If your costume is not acceptable as it is, please don’t get discouraged. You are joining an elite group of costumes and we are you going to help you get to a galaxy far, far away looking fabulous.
MY COSTUME IS DONE NOW WHAT?
Great now that your costume is done and the LCC signs off on it we can take your pictures and send them to our Global Costuming Committee for their final approval. Within two weeks you will know be notified if you are accepted.
