About Outpost 42

Outpost 42 is the New Zealand Garrison of the worldwide Star Wars costuming group, the 501st Legion.

While we wear the costumes of Stormtroopers, Sith Lords, Bounty Hunters and other villains of the Star wars films, we dedicate much of our our time towards assisting charities and community groups earning us the tagline ‘Bad Guys doing good in New Zealand’

What is the 501st Legion?

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

While the 501st was initially founded to unite costumers with a penchant for Star Wars villainy, one of our real-world missions is to bring good to our communities through volunteer charity work. The 501st is always looking for opportunities to brighten the lives of the less fortunate and to bring awareness to positive causes on both a local and global scale.
