The Rebel Legion is an international Star Wars costuming organization created by, of and for people interested in creating costumes from the Star Wars mythos. Research, create, build and improve your costumes in a place where costumers with similar passions share skills, tips and ideas. Jedi, Rebel Pilots, Troopers, Princesses and even Wookiees.... we've got them all....and we're always looking for more.
We are the good guys.
What Makes Us The Good Guys?
Besides our 'Good Guy' costumes, our worldwide membership often choose to give back to their communities (through costumed volunteer activities and charity events). No one can provide the public with a greater range of Star Wars costumes, nor a more personable, interactive, face to face experience.
The Rebel Legion was initially founded to unite people with a passion for making and wearing "light side" Star Wars reproduction costumes, but over the years we have expanded our mission to include volunteer charity work. The Rebel Legion's costumers are available for hospital visits, walk-a-thons, fundraisers and events sponsored by/in support of charity and community causes. If you would like the Rebel Legion to appear at your upcoming event, please contact us or fill out our appearance request form.
Some of the charity and community organizations that we've proudly worked with include:-

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 son's birthday party?
We can occasionally make appearances at private birthday parties, however, due to the volunteer nature of our organization we can not guarantee that every birthday request can be filled. We do appreciate being able to raise donations for charity in exchange for such appearances (see our list of charities above).
- 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 type of 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 on their own, independent of The Rebel Legion
- Do you sell costumes, masks, or props?
No. All of our costumes are hand made by our members, 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 only and at cost. No profit is made. This is solely to promote our club at conventions and to give gifts to the celebrities and company representatives who are fans of the club. All material is scrutinized and approved by Legion command and many of it is submitted to Lucasfilm representatives for their feedback prior to creation.
- Do I need to have a costume to join the Rebel Legion?
Yes, in order to become a member of the Rebel Legion you do need a costume which is representative of the Heroes from the "Star Wars" Universe. Please see our 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.
