The Forteresse Imperiale Garrison is part of the 501st Legion, a worlwide costuming organization. We are dedicated to screen accurate reproductions of Star Wars vilains costumes.


What we do

The Forteresse Imperiale Garrison is always looking for new opportunities to bring joy to old and young Star Wars enthusiasts. Our presence at events brings a breed of magic only found in a galaxy far, far away!


What we wear

We build our own costumes, which represents numerous hours of work and research, as we strive to make them as authentic as possible. Our members assist one another to facilitate their making and usage.
