How Do I Join the 501st?

Please take a look at our membership application to see the requirements. If you are interested in joining, visit your local garrison or outpost before you start working on the suit. You can get invaluable assistance from local members!

What Characters Qualify for 501st Membership

Is Darth Krayt acceptable for 501st membership? What about Captain Rex? Do you accept General Grievous?

Members and recruits often come to us to ask whether or not their favorite character is approvable by the 501st. To help make things clearer, we've put together this character approval statement that describes the criteria we use to make that decision.

As always, if you have any questions, please contact your local GML.

How are Costumes Reviewed for Membership?

Another frequently asked question is how we review new submissions. Please take a look at the costuming review page to see how we determine whether or not a costume meets 501st standards.

Costuming Reference Library

Members of the 501st have been working to assemble a catalog of visual reference guides for the various costumes in the Legion. Each of these guides represents the collected experience of our members and many hours of effort. In each guide you will find images of each part of the costume, a description of the part, and notes on 501st requirements for it.
