Couldn’t bring yourself to to throw out that old plastic light saber? Neither could these guys. The Midwest Garrison is a branch of The 501st Legion (Vader’s Fist) a non profit costuming group of Star Wars re-enactors who raise funds and donate to causes for children. They also dress in costume to entertain youngsters and bring a little joy to their lives.

Darrell Hargrove made the hyperjump from the Midsouth Garrison in Kentucky to join his fellow Illinois stormtroopers of the Midwest Garrison at Chicago Comic Con 2011 and tells us more in this interview.



These guys and girls have as much fun as the cosplayers only more often. If you want to channel your inner child while doing good, consider joining a 501st Garrison near you.
