Marching orders: Meet the Stormtroopers of the 501st Legion

The Stormtroopers are among the most iconic and fascinating characters in the “Star Wars” mythos. With blasters in hand, they patrol the hallways of the Galactic Empire’s ships and bases, looking like fearsome, capeless negative images of Darth Vader himself.

“The Stormtrooper uniform is very minimalist, it has very clean lines, it’s black and white, and it almost has a skeletal feature to it — it’s scary,” shared Albin Johnson, the founder of a massive international group of “Star Wars” costumers known as the 501st Legion.
