501st Ohio Garrison at Pandoracon

030715 PC 2016 Banner

“Imperial troops have entered the base! Imperial troops have entered the . . .” We are pleased to announce that the Ohio Garrison of the 501st Legion of Stormtroopers and other Imperial troops will be joining Pandoracon this November.


“…The 501st is a volunteer club formed for the express purpose of bringing together costume enthusiasts and giving them a collective identity within which to operate. The Legion’s aims are to celebrate the Star Wars movies through the wearing of costumes, to promote the quality and improvement of costumes and props, and most importantly to contribute to the local community through charity and volunteer work…”

Star Wars fans come from a wide spectrum of backgrounds, but no matter how diverse they may seem, common bonds become evident when people come together to celebrate their passion for George Lucas’s modern mythology. Some fans are content to collect action figures…other fans want to be action figures. Nothing professes your fandom 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 the magic with others.

Ohio 501stTo Promote

A truly engaging Star Wars experience only occurs through a convincing appearance. To this end, the 501st constantly strives to improve the quality and accuracy of its member’s costumes. Our goal is to appear as if our characters have just stepped off the big screen and into this world.

To Contribute

While our organization was founded to simply provide a collective identity for costuming fans with similar interests, the 501st is proud to put its resources to good use through fundraising, charity work, and volunteerism.
