About Us

Welcome to the online home of Starkiller Garrison, the chapter of the 501st Legion covering western Pennsylvania. The 501st Legion is a worldwide Star Wars costuming organization dedicated to charity and community service. Our film-accurate costumes focus on the villains of Star Wars, thus giving us our motto “Bad Guys Doing Good.” We can be seen in a wide variety of locations, from hospital visits to small-town libraries to major parades, and we have become the preferred costuming organization of Lucasfilm/Disney for high-profile events. We never charge for our appearances, but we do accept charitable donations in our name. If you are interested in having us appear at your event, use the Events link above to request an appearance.

If you’re interested in joining our group, please feel free to SIGN UP for our forums to take your first step into a larger world! A multitude of villainous characters from across the Star Wars galaxy is available to be portrayed. No matter what you choose to be, our friendly, helpful advisors will help you build it!
