“He said you’re the best [Mandalorian cosplay] in the parsec… He also said you were expensive, very expensive.” -The Client

The year 2020 was DOMINATED by Star Wars and its newest offshoot, The Mandalorian. 2021 has come and gone, bringing with it the glorious second season. Now 2022 has arrived, and we’re hunkering down for the UNFATHOMABLY long wait before Season 3 drops. (Let’s take a few moments to appreciate the unsung hero of The Mandalorian: Grogu!) This week is all about The Mandalorian cosplay!

The newest offering to the Star Wars universe, The Mandalorian, has stolen the hearts of thousands in recent months. With its action packed scenes, adorable and endearing cohorts, and cheeky one-liners, this show is sure to go down in the history books as one of the best modern takes on Star Wars. It should come as no surprise that some of the worlds most prolific cosplay artists are taking to the workshop, creating adaptations of this character that look like they came right out of the Galaxy. Today we’ll take account of some excellent Mandalorian cosplays!

The Mandalorian returned to the practical effects we loved best from the original Star Wars trilogy, as The Child was brought to life by some amazing puppetry skills, stealing hearts all over the Universe. This week, we’re featuring the amazing Mandalorian cosplays that feature Din Djarin and Grogu  (including some REALLY adorable matching Father/Son armor). It’s so sweet it gives me a toothache, so I had to share. The combined cuteness factor with a stunningly detailed and meticulously crafted Mando cosplay has me “aaaaaaaw”-ing all over the place. We hope you enjoy!

“When one chooses to walk the way of the Mandalore, you are both hunter and prey.”


“How can one be a coward if one chooses this way of life?

“Have you ever removed your helmet? Has it ever been removed by others? This is The Way.” -The Armorer

“I was a Foundling. They raised me in the Fighting Corps. I was treated as one of their own. When I came of age, I was sworn to The Creed. The only record of my family name was in the registers of Mandalore.” 

“The Kid’s coming with me.”

“Ready to lay low and stretch your legs for a couple of months, you little Womp Rat?”


“There’s no way we’re making it to Corvus in this shape. You know, I think we need to visit some friends for repairs.”

“So, how’d you like to go back to Nevarro?”-Mando to The Child

I couldn’t help it, this is such a great cosplay I HAD to include some of his other images. Just try and come at me for it.Sadly I do not have Cosplayer info for this image. PLEASE let me know if you now have credits to update me with! 

“Alumaluster trials….it sure is pretty and it looks more like metal. Not sure if there is a sealer out there that won’t dull the finish though. Thank you Adam Kyron Murillo for doing the airbrushing today. I was a little scared. 😎“- Shawn Richter

“There is only one way. the way of the Mandalore.” 

“You’re not going alone. I’m coming with you. But I won’t be showing my face.”
