The Atlantic Garrison is a proud unit within the worldwide Star Wars costuming organization, the 501st Legion. Proudly representing the Canadian east coast—Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, and Newfoundland and Labrador.
“…The Legion is an all-volunteer organization formed for the express purpose of bringing together costume enthusiasts under a collective identity within which to operate. The Legion seeks to promote interest in Star Wars through the building and wearing of quality costumes, and to facilitate the use of these costumes for Star Wars-related events as well as contributions to the local community through costumed charity and volunteer work…”
From Stormtroopers of the Empire, to the Tusken Raiders of the dunes of Tatooine, there’s a costume for you! If you’re interested in diving into the world of Star Wars costuming, we want to hear from you! We’re always excited to find new members. Even if you’re just interested, send us a message, and we’ll give you as much info as we can. You’d be surprised how fun being a bad guy can be!
While the 501st was initially founded to unite costumers with a penchant for Star Wars Villainy, one of our real-world missions is to bring good to our communities through volunteer charity work. The 501st is always looking for opportunities to brighten the lives of the less fortunate and to bring awareness to positive causes on both a local and global scale.
