Welcome to the Rebel Legion Ireland Base
Welcome to the Rebel Legion Ireland Base – our Base serves Republic of Ireland territory.
The Rebel Legion is an all-volunteer, non-profit international Star Wars costuming club whos aims are to raise money for charities, to support community events and promote the franchise through appearances their members make in costumes that represent all eras of the Star Wars Saga.
It has been formed in 2000 to bring together Star Wars costuming enthusiasts and fans, giving them a collective identity both online and offline to meet and have fun with membership now surpasses 3,000 members globally.
Each country or region will have their own ‘Base’. Base members work in their areas or countries to create that local identity and to encourage teamwork within those communities.
Rebel Legion’s member’s research, build, craft and make their own costumes, in their own time and expense to appear at events.
Members are encouraged to strive for the highest level of screen accuracy and realism in order to bring the characters of the Star Wars universe to life.
As such it would be easy to mistake the Rebel Legion as a cosplay group but really we are a ‘costuming’ club; where accuracy and dedication to making the most authentic costumes is as important to our members as raising money for the charities we support.
As well as attending larger national and international events, our key objectives is also to give something back to the communities we live in through charity fundraising at the events we attend – large or small.
