What is the 501st Legion?

The 501st Legion is a worldwide costuming organization, founded in 1997. We build authentic-looking Star Wars costumes and do charity work and fan events.

We do appearances at Star Wars movie premieres, conventions, fundraisers, children’s hospital visits, marriage proposals, libraries, and more. We’re doing this because we like Star Wars and costuming, and want to contribute to society through charity and volunteer work. Read our mission statement for more information.

We have local branches all over the world. These branches are called garrisons, squads or outposts, depending on the size of the territory and number of troopers living there. I’m in Nordic Garrison, which covers Norway, Sweden and Finland.

Each costume category has its own detachment, a group within the Legion that specializes in one type of costume. Stormtroopers are in First Imperial Stormtrooper Detachment and Boba Fetts are in The Bounty Hunters Guild
