501st Legion - Cecil Con 2018

Old Line Garrison, 501st Legion

The 501st Legion is a worldwide Star Wars costuming organization comprised of and operated by Star Wars fans. The Old Line Garrison is a chapter of The 501st Legion representing the State of Maryland and Washington, DC. The 501st Legion is the worlds premier Imperial costuming club, dedicated to accurate and professional-level costuming of antagonist characters from the Star Wars universe.

Although they represent the antagonists and ‘villains’ from the Star Wars universe, the 501st Legion has a shining reputation as ‘Bad Guys Doing Good’, and they pride ourselves upon their mission to lend their visibility to charitable events and community service throughout our area of responsibility. They also enjoy attending local science fiction conventions and assisting Lucasfilm with Star Wars promotions.
