Looking to Join the 501st Legion?
To join the 501st Legion you need a few qualifications.
- Be 18 years of age or older
- Have a movie quality costume from the “bad guys” of the SW Universe
Once you have these first two items taken care of, you go this site to submit your application! http://www.501st.com/databank/Membership:JoinUs
Make sure that you have already taken high quality pictures of your costume from all sides (front, back, left side, right side, with helmet on and off), and contact the Imperial Sands Garrison Membership Liaison (GML) at firstname.lastname@example.org to send in your pictures for review!
Once we receive the application and pictures, we will review your costume and reach out to you! If you’re not yet ready to submit your application, or haven’t even decided on your costume, you have a few options!
Register at our forum www.imperialsandsgarrison.com/forums to read/review and post in our Academy and Armory section to meet other members and get help! Also, reference the 501st Legion’s Costume Reference Library here for pictures and standards for all the Legion’s approved costumes:
