Looking to join the 501st Legion?
Do you love to give back to your community?
Do you have a love for Star Wars?
Are you over 18?
Well look no further! This post will help you get a head start!
Generally speaking, our members make their own costumes. To make it easier to get help with your desired project, the 501st has formed detachments focused on particular costumes.
Detachments are where you will find the armor builders and how to’s when it comes to armor.
The detachment page will link you to multiple costume specific groups. Example:” I want to be a stormtrooper.” Visit the First Imperial Stormtrooper Detachment for everything you need on where or how to acquire that armor.
So once you’ve settled on a character it’s just a matter of heading over to that forum, signing up, and getting help from the experts!
-Again the detachment page will guide you to what you would like to do.
We recommend you register on the 501st Georgia Garrison forums and introduce yourself in the “Imperial Academy.”
That will become home base for any further progression. It will allow us to be able to coordinate with you if you need extra help. You can also come and join us on troops as a “handler” to get the feel of it.
-Once you have your costume finished, you need to prepare your photos and submit your application.
Your local Garrison Membership Liaison (GML) will need to verify your qualifications and will ask for pictures of you in your costume for validation. See the 501st Legion unit listings to identify your local GML.
