Our costumes are, obviously, a huge part of what we do. We are very proud of the high level of screen accuracy to which we keep.
If you are considering building your own Star Wars villain costume to join the 501st Legion then you will need to check out the Costume Reference Library (CRL) for your selected costume. That’s where you will find photos and a list of parts and details that must be in your costume for basic approval. Often you will also find second and even third level quality tiers that are for the absolute elite. CRL’s do not offer advice or give specifics on on how to construct a costume.
Detachments are where you will find experts who have built the costume(s) before and also lots of parts for sale, posting tips and tricks and guides for building. Most people start a “Work in Progress” thread on the relevant detachment forum in order to get feedback as they go along.
Definitely check out the Guide to CRL’s and New to the Legion Costumes for more information.
