501 st Legion
Since 1997, the costuming organization known as the 501st Legion has spread the magic of the Star Wars genre worldwide through its authentic-looking costumes, and has become the leading force in fan-based charity events.

The costume enthusiast of the Star Wars hero characters a global community to enjoy, express, and share their costume talents. Secondly, the Legion also promotes the quality and improvement of Star Wars costumes. Thirdly and most importantly, we follow the lead of Lucasfilm Ltd. by giving back to the community through works of charity and volunteerism.
Agnieszka Ann Jankiewicz (A.A. Jankiewicz, but known to most as Agnes) was born in the midst of one of the biggest blizzards of the year on February 12th, 1988. Even in her earliest years, she loved telling stories in any medium she could get her hands on. As a young girl, she was heavily influenced by her father’s love of medieval history, Greek mythology and science fiction. Spending many summers in Poland visiting her grandmother, she was further enamoured with legends of castles, dragons and the Polish countryside filled with vast forests and limestone mountains.
