What is the Costume Reference Library?
To describe the costume reference library, we first have to give an overview of the costuming organization of the club.
- Costumes in the 501st are grouped into categories (TK for stormtroopers, CC for clone commanders, etc...).
- These costume categories are then grouped into detachments, each representing a collection of members passionate about that particular set of costumes.
The detachments have worked for several years to assemble the guides below to aid you in creating your own costumes and joining the 501st!
Each reference guide contains pictures of the costume, a detailed description of the parts, and requirements for 501st membership. Below you will find a list of detachments and the costumes they manage. To find out more about building the costume, click on the detachment's visual guides link. Please be aware that this project is constantly growing and evolving. Check back often to see the latest entries!
