If you are considering building your own Star Wars villain costume in any of the accepted categories of the 501st Legion, we recommend that you visit a 501st Legion Detachment message forum. Our Detachments focus on individual costume categories and offer the best information available for constructing your own detailed costume.While official Legion membership can only be achieved through the completion and verification of your costume, participation on our Detachment forums is open to the public. If you are considering a Star Wars hero, Jedi, or Rebel costume, we recommend you visit our sister organization, the Rebel Legion.
