Our Story

Since 2011

The very first costume I worked on was a Tie Fighter 181st Imperial Pilot. I chose it because of the duality of that character, first an Imperial, then a Rebel. It resonated with me because of the complexity of the personality, the perfect representation of the choices to be made, the way life can take a different path. 

 

That was the first costume but also the very first prop I worked on for others. In the world today there are 20 aluminium type B chestbox that were made back in 2012; I had just taken my first step in a larger world. 

In 2015 I got together with other 501st members and we started the journey to making quality boots and gloves for costuming purposes. In 2016 we established -IB-‘s web presence and launched the first e-shop.

Overtime we used our expertise and network to start making clothes and accessories with the goal to offer complete sets making it easier for any trooper, new or seasoned, to complete their costume with less headaches. 

 

Present Days

Today we work with talented people to bring our worldwide community visually accurate replica costumes, based on our strict costuming requirements so that members can complete their desired character’s costume and clear the costuming club registration process. 

Core Values

We are troopers first, we work to make gear that meet the requirements of the community; everything is hand made by artisan only. We are true to the original passion of prop makers:  we do it out of love, not out of greed; what matters first is the troopers.

We do our best to provide quality props and a solid service so that all troopers can rest easy and be guaranteed that they will receive what they order within a reasonable timeframe, at a reasonable cost.

We make gear that are visually accurate but also can endure trooping and offer a higher level of comfort. 

Our Community

We have a deep respect for the community; be it the 501st, the Rebel Legion or any other SWU costuming club.

 
We know first hand how much work goes into making a costume and how important quality parts are during trooping.

 
We also know how costly our passion can be but also how much impact troopers can have in bringing smiles to people. 

That is why everything we make has been tested in the field, has been crafted and evolved with community feedback, and has been approved by various judges and GML in several parts of the world. 

 

You do not spend the hours we spend helping troopers, building costumes, researching, designing, prototyping, reviewing, taking care of everything if you are not passionate about SWU; it's always been about fellow troopers and supporting the community's growth.
