STAR GARRISON OF THE 501ST
Since 1997, the costuming organization known as the 501st Legion has spread the magic of the Star Wars genre worldwide through its authentic-looking costumes, and has become the leading force in fan-based charity events. The 501st, also known as "Vader's Fist", is truly dedicated to brightening the lives of those less-fortunate. Be sure to drop by the booth and say hello to their members, get photos taken with the Star Wars props and characters, and inquire about how YOU might be able to join the Empire’s Finest!

KESSEL BASE REBEL LEGION
The mission of The Rebel Legion is threefold. First, we offer the costume enthusiast of the Star Wars hero characters a global community to enjoy, express, and share their costume talents. Secondly, the Legion also promotes the quality and improvement of Star Wars costumes. Thirdly and most importantly, we follow the lead of Lucasfilm Ltd. by giving back to the community through works of charity and volunteerism.
