Central Defense: The Fighting Fifth garrison of The Finest: A G.I. Joe Costume Club!
The Chicago Pop Culture Con welcomes Central Defense: The Fighting Fifth garrison of The Finest: A G.I. Joe Costume Club!
The Finest was established in 2007 to provide a positive community for fans to share their passion for the G.I. Joe universe by means of building and wearing high-quality costumes. In the ensuing years, the G.I. Joe brand experienced a tremendous resurgence following the success of new feature films, video games, cartoons, and an updated series of action figures. With this renewed public interest in G.I. Joe, the ranks of the Finest began to swell.
The mission of the Finest is to provide a positive community for costume enthusiasts to build and wear highly-detailed costumes and props from the G.I. Joe universe. Finest members actively promote interest in the G.I. Joe brand and use appearances at conventions and other events as a means to support community projects and charity efforts.
