The Jedi Assembly is a worldwide, fan-based group for Star Wars Jedi costuming enthusiasts. It is our intent to further enhance the Star Wars genre by recreating screen-accurate Jedi costumes and props for our enjoyment, as well as for official Disney/Lucasfilm and charity events. We encourage Jedi costumers of all ability levels to join our social media forums, ask questions and to share their knowledge/costume progress with others.

The Jedi Assembly is a worldwide fan group that was founded in 2002 by Anthony Foister. As the founder, he formed the Jedi Council to assist him with the duties of running such an organization. Currently, the Jedi Council consists of members appointed by council vote. The Jedi Council members are responsible for managing the Assembly and enforcing the Jedi Code, for managing the Message Boards, designing Assembly logos and non-profit merchandise, and planning future group meetings and conventions. The Assembly Jedi Council currently consists of Leda Em-Borr, Nova Darklighter and Bouri-Plwel. Jedi Council members are not term-limited and they must have been an active member for at least one year before holding an official position of authority at The Jedi Assembly, such as Council Member or Order Master. Council members may step down at any time. All decisions made by the Jedi Council are FINAL.
The Jedi Assembly is divided into regions or ORDERS. Individual ORDERS can meet on their own terms. Assembly ORDERS are defined as:
Northern Order - ME, NH, VT, RI, CT, NY, NJ, MA, PA, WV, DC, DE
Southern Order - MD, VA, NC, SC, FL, GA, AL, MS, LA, AR, TN, OK, TX, Puerto Rico, US Virgin Islands
Midwestern Order - KY, OH, IN, IL, MO, KS, NE, ND, SD, MN, IA, MI, WI
Western Order - NM, AZ, CO, UT, ID, MT, WY, WA, OR, CA, NV, AK, HI, American Samoa, Northern Marianas, Guam
Outer Rim Order - Canada, South America, Europe, Asia, Australia, Africa, etc.
A Jedi Master, called Master of the ORDER, runs each Assembly Order. Order Masters are not term limited and may step down at any time.
We acknowledge that while in Jedi costume we represent the Star Wars genre and as such accept the responsibility to behave professionally and civilly while in costume. All Assembly members must adhere to the following rules, or face disciplinary action, up to and including termination of membership.
A member who violates any of the above conduct standards will be subject to the following disciplinary actions:
The 1st offense will result in a warning, which can be issued by any member of the Jedi Council. The 2nd offense will result in an official warning from either the CO or XO. Finally, a 3rd offense will result in a temporary ban of membership from both The Jedi Assembly and the message boards. The case will then be brought up before the entire Jedi Council, who will determine if membership should be restored or permanently terminated. Members who feel that they have received an unfair warning may appeal to the Jedi Council to review the incident. However, all decisions made by the Council pertaining to the incident are final.
All members of The Jedi Assembly Jedi Council must adhere to the following Jedi Council Code at all times or face disciplinary action, which may include removal from the Council, temporary suspension, or permanent revocation of membership.
All Council members MUST fulfill the following basic requirements to remain on the Council:
If any Council member is found to be in violation of the TJA Jedi Council Code, then the rest of the Council may decide to pursue disciplinary action, including temporary or permanent removal from the Jedi Council, and in extreme cases, revocation of membership in TJA.
Repeated offenses of any of the above rules will result in being banned from the Message Boards and possibly from the Assembly.
Buying and Selling on the Message Boards:
The Jedi Assembly does NOT endorse ANY vendor or member selling items. Members who choose to offer items on this forum assume ALL responsibility for those items. We will not be monitoring ANY transactions that take place, nor can we take responsibility for deals gone badly. We recommend that members seek references before entering into any deal with a person you do not know. We do have a forum for feedback. Members are free to post their positive and negative experiences in that forum only. Please stick to the facts and ONLY the facts when posting. Flaming will not be tolerated. The following rules apply for all transactions that occur on the message boards:
The Jedi Assembly reserves the right to revise the rules should unforeseen problems or issues arise. Any questions are to be posted in the Jedi Council Chambers or directed to a council member.
There are many exceptional Star Wars costuming sites on the Internet that welcome Star Wars costumers from around the world. The 501st Legion of Stormtroopers and The Rebel Legion are the two most well-known. The Jedi Assembly is exclusively for light-side of the Force Jedi costumers.
All members of The Jedi Assembly must possess a Jedi costume. This costume can be representative of any of the styles seen in the Star Wars movies and animated television series, as described in the novels and graphic novels of the Star Wars expanded universe, or as depicted in Star Wars video games, but must adhere to the guidelines below. Please note that as TJA continues to grow and evolve, these guidelines may be changed frequently. Upon accepting membership into TJA, you must accept that costume requirements may be altered and understand that if this occurs, your costume might need to be altered or modified within a reasonable time period (i.e., six months) in order to meet the new guidelines.
Costume Element Requirements:
As The Jedi Assembly grows, opportunities to volunteer as an organization at large conventions, local Star Wars events, and even Lucasfilm sponsored events will become available. At these functions, there may be times when only "canon" Jedi costumes will be allowed for certain events. This will usually not be a requirement set forth by the Founder or the Jedi Council, but the organizers of the respective events. Such requirements for canon-only costumes are common for other successful Star Wars costuming groups, such as the 501st. Therefore, the following rules will apply for any function in which The Jedi Assembly volunteers as a group at an official function:
Applicants MUST be 18 or older to officially join. If a minor (under 18) submits any membership info, that info will not be displayed. If a member is found to be under the age of 18 after acceptance into the Assembly, that member will be banned from both the Assembly and the Assembly Message Boards immediately upon discovery.
Although minors (age 13-17) cannot become official members, they are allowed post on our Message Boards. However, a minor cannot participate in members-only functions, such as group meetings, or be recognized in the Assembly’s member database. Anyone over the age of 13 can post on the Message Boards and talk to whomever they like. As always, caution is warranted when talking with anyone over the Internet. The public does not have to be a member of the Assembly to make Star Wars Jedi costumes or attend conventions. Anyone can socialize and talk to whomever they wish at a convention. Minors are to be cautioned when giving out personal details such as Instant Message usernames and residence addresses.
Members are NOT allowed to take a minor as a Padawan learner on the Assembly Message Boards. A member that is found to have taken a minor as a Padawan will be asked to dissolve that apprenticeship or face expulsion from the Assembly.
All members must respect that the Jedi Council have worked long and hard to bring the Assembly to what it is today. The Jedi Assembly crest was designed by Keyarah Rayno (Sarah Claydon) with input on its design by the rest of the council. LucasFilm Licensing has required that we use their trademark insignia on any thing that we produce for distribution. We must follow these guidelines or LucasFilm may take away our status. Any business cards or brochures produced will be done by a member of the Jedi Council unless otherwise directed. Any use of, or modification of this design (including use as a message board signature graphic) without express consent from Leda Em-Borr will result in disciplinary actions or termination of Assembly membership.
