Why do you do this?
The Rebel Legion is a Star Wars based costuming fan club. Since the Legion’s inception it has been a volunteer club of costume enthusiasts who can enjoy, express, and share their interest of costuming with others in the fan community.
How old do you have to be to join?
To be considered for membership, you must be 18 years or older.
What’s the difference between the Rebel Legion and the 501st Legion?
The Rebel Legion’s members create and wear costumes of the hero characters from the Star Wars saga, which includes but is not limited to the six films, comics, books, games, and television shows based on the Star Wars saga. Think Jedi and X-Wing Pilots.
The 501st Legion is our sister organization and portray characters from the Imperial or Dark Side of the Star Wars mythos. Think Darth Vader and Stormtroopers.
How much do the costumes cost?
Our screen accurate costumes can range in cost from less than $100 to thousands of dollars. It all depends on the costume. Our costumes are the result of careful research, fabrication and a lot of hard work. The majority of our costume components are hand built and assembled in our spare time. Given that the likenesses portrayed by these costumes are the intellectual property of Lucasfilm, it must be stressed that we do not provide or manufacture costumes for purchase.
Do I have to make my costume?
Not necessarily, however, most of our members do make their own costumes. For those just starting out, we have in-depth forums with tutorials on making costumes and with links to purchase pieces that other members may have for sale. Most of our forums are open to non-members and can be accessed once you have registered. To register, click here.
Do you charge for events?
The Rebel Legion is an all-volunteer organization and does not charge for appearances. However, for events of private individuals and for-profit companies, we ask that the host makes a small donation to a local charity of choice.
Can you teach me how to duel with a light saber or show me how to shoot a blaster?
