The 501st Legion is an all-volunteer organization formed for the express purpose of bringing together Star Wars costume enthusiasts under a collective identity within which to operate. The 501st Legion seeks to promote interest in Star Wars through the building and wearing of quality costumes, and to facilitate the use of these costumes for Star Wars-related events as well as contributions to the local community through costumed charity and volunteer work. The 501st Legion focus on the costumes that represent the "bad guys" in the Star Wars universe from movies, tv shows, comics, novels, and video games. Timberline Garrison is the local garrison serving the states of Idaho and Montana. We are proud to represent the 501st Legion as it celebrates 20 years as Lucasfilm's preferred Imperial costume club.
