"The Finest: A G.I. Joe Costume Club" (The Finest) is the world’s premier international G.I. Joe costuming organization. Founded in 2007, the Finest has expanded to include more than 300 members in nearly 40 US states and seven countries. The club celebrates G.I. Joe through the creation and wearing of high-quality costumes and props based upon canon characters from the G.I. Joe universe. Each year, club members appear and exhibit at more than 100 pop-culture conventions, parades, and other events worldwide. As of November 2018, the Finest has raised approximately $70,000 for charity causes, with all proceeds donated to military and veteran-based organizations such as the USO and K9s For Warriors!
The Finest maintains a very high standard of professional-quality costumes. Our members spend considerable time, effort, and finances on creating highly-detailed costumes as accurately as possible, and given the global exposure and partnerships with high-profile charity organizations, the club strives to maintain a high standard of costume excellence.
