New Firefly costume group starting  
A member of a couple other costuming groups (Star Wars 501st Legion & Rebel Legion) is starting a Firefly costuming group because he couldn't find a single group (such as exists for Star Wars and other fandoms).  Here's the info:

It’s called “The ‘Verse” a Firefly/Serenity costume club.
Its pretty small right now. Just getting started.
also on FB http://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Verse-fireflyserenity-costume-club/239929512712275

Anyone and everyone is welcome to join the boards and FB. Talk about Firefly/Serenity costumes, offer ideas, suggestions, post pics, whatever…

You should post this to DragonCon on LJ as well. I'm sure there are be a lot of people who would be interested.

There is a group like the 501st out there called the 76th Independent Battalion, that have marched at DragonCon at least, if not in other places. I don't know if they do all costumes, or just soldiers, but you might be interested in them :)

Yes, I've seen them at D'Con. They do just soldiers, from what I can tell from their website. That side is linked on The 'Verse message board for those interested.

Hi there. I am XO (second in command) over at The 'Verse. We have been growing by quite a bit lately. The 76th Battalion, while a great organization, is strictly for costuming as Independent Soldiers based on Mal's and Zoe's costumes from the Firefly series premier, Serenity. Our group differs from the 76th in that we want to include the entire universe of Firefly as far as costuming goes, hence our name. We are also looking to organize like the 501st, with a command structure and such, but we're a little more lax when it comes to costumes. Originally we had planned on admitting only screen accurate costumes, like the 501st, but we decided if we relaxed the restrictions a little we could grow our membership easier. We still have some restrictions regarding costumes though. For example, Jayne does not wear sneakers or something like that. We're small and were trying. If anyone here would like to join, please feel free. And I'll answer any questions you may have. And we're still a relatively new club, so any suggestions you may have please send them our way.
