Tribute to Shawna Trpcic

Published • Written by • Categorized in Fettpedia

May the Force be with award-winning “The Mandalorian” and “The Book of Boba Fett” costume designer Shawna Trpcic who passed away suddenly. We thank her for bringing Boba Fett and Mandalorians to life in new ways.

A memorial fund has been set up.

Coming from a background in fashion, educated at Otis, before moving into the film industry as a fashion illustrator and assistant designer, Shawna made a name for herself with the Firefly show.

“[Boba Fett] has always been my favorite,” Shawna Trpcic said in her interview with Designing Hollywood (December 5, 2020). For Boba Fett, she worked off concept art by Doug Chiang. She loved the idea of the samurai skirt and integrate black from his time in the desert. Filoni was concerned it’s too dark, too Darth Vader, but once they saw the sketch work, they loved it. “It was important to me to show a journey – from the acid burns on the armor and his choices.”

According to a post on her Instagram, “The Book of Boba Fett” belt buckle for Boba Fett was designed by her son.

Born on October 18th, 1966, she was 56 years old. According to her obituary in The Hollywood Reporter, she passed away of an unknown illness this last Wednesday, October 4th.
