Here are some answers to frequently-asked questions we get when making appearances for fundraisers and other goodwill events. Many of these questions are answered at the main 501st Legion website (www.fl501st.com), but to save you some time, here are answers to the most commonly asked questions:
Q: Are you some sort of Star Wars club? Where do you come from?
A: We are members of the 501st Legion, a global Star Wars costuming organization, founded by Albin Johnson. Members create movie-accurate Star Wars costumes, and participate in all kinds of events, primarily fund raising, charity and social-awareness events. There are over 10,000 members around the world, designated by garrisons, and further designated by squads. Most of these pictures of the site are from the Florida Garrison (LINK to Florida Garrison homepage)
Q: What do you charge for appearances?
A: Members do not charge for appearances. All of us do this for free, on our own time. The one thing we all have in common, besides a love of Star Wars, is a desire to help people, and make our communities a better place to live. We also get to have fun doing it!
Q: Do you do birthday parties?
A: Not usually; most of the events we participate in are public events.
The best way to arrange an appearance of the 501st Legion to your event is to submit an appearance request on the main 501t Legion website. Since we are all volunteers and do this for fun, and we all have day jobs, the best time for an event is on the weekend. Participation is influenced by members’ schedules, and other events that may be taking place at the same time.
