Star Wars Indiana is comprised of two main groups: Bloodfin Garrison of the 501st Legion, the “bad guys” of the Star Wars universe, and Mos Espa Base of the Rebel Legion, the “good guys” of the Star Wars universe.
We attend many events together across the state, from conventions to sporting events to charity functions and more.
To Promote Interest in Star Wars While a growing number of people are experiencing a reawakening of their Star Wars fandom, new generations are seeking ways to celebrate their passion for George Lucas’s modern mythology. The 501st Legion brings these fans together, reinforcing the enduring longevity of the Star Wars saga.
To Facilitate the Use of Costumes Some fans are content to collect action figures…other fans want to be action fig-ures. Nothing professes your passion quite like building your own detailed costume replica of a classic Star Wars villain, and there’s nothing quite like the feeling that comes from bringing the characters of Star Wars into the real world and sharing that magic with others.
To Contribute to the Local Community
While our organization was founded to simply provide a collective identity for costuming fans with similar interests, the 501st Legion is proud to put its resources to good use through fundraising, charity work, and volunteerism.
