The 501st Legion

“…The 501st Legion is an all-volunteer organization formed for the express purpose of bringing together costume enthusiasts under a collective identity within which to operate. The Legion seeks to promote interest in Star Wars through the building and wearing of quality costumes, and to facilitate the use of these costumes for Star Wars-related events as well as contributions to the local community through costumed charity and volunteer work…”

Get involved

If you’re interested in diving into the world of Star Wars costuming, we want to hear from you! We’re always excited to find new members. Even if you’re just interested, send us a message, and we’ll give you as much info as we can. You’d be surprised how fun being a bad guy can be!

The Support Crew

We are always looking for people to assist us during the events that we attend. Believe us, when we say that wearing that stormtrooper costume is not an easy task.

Joining our Support Crew is a great way to get involved in the group without having an approved costume.


While the 501st was initially founded to unite costumers with a penchant for Star Wars Villainy, one of our real-world missions is to bring good to our communities through volunteer charity work. The 501st Legion is always looking for opportunities to brighten the lives of the less fortunate and to bring awareness to positive causes on both a local and global scale.
