The Flagship Eclipse featured members

Welcome to the Flagship Eclipse Detachment, home of Star Wars Legends and animated canon characters.

We strive to create accurate and quality costumes based on characters from the many sources of Star Wars stories - comics, books, video games, figures, statues, animated shows, etc. The references are as vast as the character possibilities. While the majority of characters within our ranks fall under the previously labeled Expanded Universe, we have since welcomed non-movie canon characters from Star Wars: the Clone Wars and Star Wars: Rebels, and look forward to serving as a center of knowledge and experience in these and future costumes.

The Flagship Eclipse started as a group for builders of Mara Jade over ten years ago, and with nearly 50 different approved characters within the Legion (and new characters being added as we grow), it is my hope that you will find the resources you seek in creating your Star Wars costume. Our community is filled with passionate and skilled members, as well as some of the most unique costumes found within the Legion. Let our decade+ worth of research and experience assist you in your 501st and costume journey.

May the Force be with You,
Nina Marley
The Flagship Eclipse Detachment Leader


The 501st Legion is a Star Wars fan club dedicated to celebrating the Star Wars universe through costuming; specifically the costumes and characters of the stormtrooper and other Imperial forces, as well as non-affiliated villains and denizens. 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.

The Legion recognizes it holds no claim over the costumes and characters it portrays, and that their use is a privilege extended by Lucasfilm Ltd. (LFL). The members of the Legion acknowledge and accept that while in costume, we represent the Star Wars brand and will do so professionally and responsibly at all times. The text shown above is an excerpt from Article 1 of the 501st Legion Charter.
