Actually I am not even sure if they are bounty hunter because I do not know who it is... but I ran into this costumed character at Brick Fest of all places...

Is this a real character in-universe or is this just an awesome fan-made costume?

I am assuming this is a character from Star Wars as he was there with the 501st Legion.

    Why does that have to be a Star Wars bounty hunter and not just a medieval knight? – ThePopMachine Jul 25 '17 at 20:21

    Because of Mandalorian helmet? – Gallifreyan Jul 25 '17 at 20:22
  • @ThePopMachine I will add it to my question but hes was with the 501st. – Skooba Jul 25 '17 at 20:24

    The (our) left shoulder has a lion; the right shoulder has a saw blade. The left side of the helmet looks sort of Mandalorian; the right side doesn't. There is fur. I just don't see the evidence this is even supposed to be related to Star Wars. There are no (metal) swords in Star Wars. Either it's a weird mashup, or a coincidence. – ThePopMachine Jul 25 '17 at 20:25

This is a fan-made costume.

Designing and wearing custom Mandalorian costumes has been quite popular for years, especially after the Clone Wars series brought in new, canon Mandalorian armor beyond the original Boba/Jango armors from the movies.

While I have no direct evidence, that person is likely a member of the Mandalorian Mercs, a costuming organization that frequently partners with the 501st Legion and Rebel Legion to invade sci-fi/comic conventions and perform charity work.

Most people building Mandalorian armor of that level of detail start off their hobbying at The Dented Helmet for resources, guides, and connecting with expert prop-makers. They usually connect with the costuming groups from there or vice versa.

I think it's just a fan-made costume, based on the helmet looking similar to Boba Fett's, meaning it's probably a medieval version of said bounty hunter.

Not definite, but that's what I see.
