Frequently Asked Questions

If you have a question not answered below, please reach out via email at:

What is the Rebel Legion?

The Rebel Legion is an international Star Wars costuming organization that promotes the Star Wars franchise and helps others through charity work and community service.

Are you part of the 501st Legion?

No. Although the Rebel Legion is the official “good guy” counterpart to the Mountain Garrison 501st and Mandalorian Mercs: Cerar Clan and regularly work together, we are separate groups. Many members belong to multiple clubs.

Are you part of Lucasfilm?

No. The Rebel Legion is a volunteer fan-run organization. However, Lucasfilm recognizes the Legion as the premier Rebel costuming group, and we have worked with Lucasfilm officials on several occasions.

How much do you charge for appearances?

The Rebel Legion is a volunteer organization and does not accept payment for appearances. However, we greatly appreciate donations to charity organizations in our name.

How can I get you to attend my event?

Please use our Appearance Request form.

What sort of events do you guys do?

The Rebel Legion marches in parades, raises funds for charity, appears at conventions, visits children’s hospitals, troops educational and science centers, and various other events.

The Legion does not participate in commercial ventures or business promotions unrelated to the Star Wars franchise, nor do we campaign for political or religious causes.

Will you show up to my child’s birthday party or my wedding?

At this time, we cannot attend personal events such as birthday parties or weddings.

What is the Rebel Legion’s stance on Jedi Academy Training, Saber Training, etc.?

Due to legal issues, the Rebel Legion cannot authorize, support, or be involved with any saber training classes. The Rebel Legion cannot allow any LFL or Rebel Legion trademarks, logos, phrases, monikers, etc., to be involved with any variation of saber training classes. Members will be brought up on charges if they use LFL or Rebel Legion trademarks, logos, phrases, monikers, etc., in conjunction with a saber training class. We highly recommend members consider the possible legal ramifications of liability before planning, arranging, or conducting any saber training sessions independently, independent of The Rebel Legion.

Do you sell costumes, masks, or props?

No. Our members handmade all our costumes, and none of our costumes or props are for sale to the general public.

Do you sell t-shirts or other merchandise?

No. Star Wars is the property of Lucasfilm Ltd. and its licensee partners. For this reason, we only produce a limited range of apparel and paraphernalia to be sold to our members and at cost. No profit is made. This is solely to promote our club at conventions and to give gifts to celebrities and company representatives who are club fans. Legion command scrutinizes and approves all material; much of it is submitted to Lucasfilm representatives for their feedback before creation.

Do I need to have a costume to join the Rebel Legion?

Yes, to become a member of the Rebel Legion, you need a costume that is representative of the Heroes from the “Star Wars” Universe. You can find more information on costuming and joining the cause here. Please see the Rebel Legion’s list of Costuming Standards for examples of the types of costumes we accept and the criteria the costumes must meet for acceptance into our organization.
