Where do you get your costumes?
Generally speaking, our members make their own costumes. To make it easier to get help with your desired project, join our garrison’s forum and we’ll help you get started.
NOTE: Star Wars costumes that are commercially available in stores or online may not be acceptable for membership! It is recommended that you contact your Garrison Membership Liaison before purchasing a retail costume to find out if it is accepted or what modifications might be required.
How much do your costumes cost?
That depends on what costume you choose and what skills you bring to the project. If you can sew, an officer costume would be be relatively easy, but if you can’t sew you’d need to hire a tailor. In general, our costumes range from a couple hundred dollars to several thousand depending on the character.
Do you accept custom Star Wars characters?
While there are many amazing custom costumes out there, the 501st only accepts costumes with some sort of canon visual reference. Please take a look at our character approval guidelines for more information.
