The 501st approval requirements are listed in black.

The Imperial Officer Corp Detachment defines additional, optional levels of costuming excellence. In the page below, items listed in blue are optional features that will improve the quality of the costume. These items are not required, but are recommended.

For 501st membership only the requirements in black need to be met.


Please note that the popular eBay Imperial officer / crew uniforms are not acceptable out of the box. The rank badge and belt buckle must be replaced, the collar must be altered to fit the below requirements, and the garments may require tailoring / alterations for proper fit.


This CRL is a work in progress and is not yet ready to use for GML approval!
