Our eternal buddy Albin Johnson is here with new of the latest Walking Wounded patches, and as ever they are beautiful, must-have items.
To my fellow Star Wars fans,
The Walking Wounded is a home for those in the Star Wars costuming community facing challenges: physical, mental, emotional. It began as an unofficial unit tied to the 501st Legion, but soon Rebel Legion and Mandalorian Mercs members asked to join – and none were denied. Because this is bigger than just one club.
In that spirit, I asked artist extraordinaire Dave Liew to create emblems to recognize our Rebel and Mando members. These just blow me away. Luke is such a big part of my SW history – as an amputee I feel so much encouragement seeing him brandishing his prosthesis. And this bad-ass Mando design makes it clear: this is the way!
(Some have seen these and asked about other clubs being represented. No worries, we are working to expand the line to include Dark Empire and other groups as well.)
It is important we all feel represented. Hopefully this will invite more non-501st members to join the WWD. Because this is our fight, together.
