Our Mission

The Timberline Garrison is the local unit of the 501st Legion — a screen-quality Imperial costuming organization — serving Idaho and Montana. 

As members of The 501st, we strive to construct screen-accurate costumes of the villains featured in the STAR WARS series of films. At the same time, we utilize these costumes to “give back” to the community by participating in charity and community events, such as the MS Walk, Make-a-Wish events, Toys for Tots fundraisers, and much more!

Request an Appearance

If you have an upcoming event in Idaho or Montana that you think would benefit from an appearance by our members dressed as villains such as Darth Vader, Stormtroopers, and Boba Fett, we’d love to hear from you! Visit our Event Information page for more information on the types of events we appear at, and how to request an appearance.

Join the Ranks

If you’re interested in building a screen-quality costume based on the “villains” or “bad guys” of the STAR WARS galaxy, we’d be honored if you would join us! We can help you get started. Visit our Recruiting Information Page to begin your journey to the Dark Side.
