Star Wars Cosplay: May the Fourth Be With You – 501st Legion Celebrates Star Wars Day

4 Minute Read
May 03

On this most auspicious of weeks, the 501st Legion wants to wish you a happy May the Fourth!

Star Wars fans around the world know this to be the most sacred of days- the day we celebrate everything within the Star Wars galaxy. There are none more dedicated to this celebration than the members of the 501st Legion, those dedicated to the most screen realistic cosplays on the market. Today we celebrate Star Wars Day!



Revenge of the Fifth is a hilarious offshoot of this yearly celebration, and the 501st Legion regularly produces content for their community around the day. Check out this epic compilation from the 2020 May the Fourth celebration!




Cosplay for Good

Not only do the 501st Legion members do Cosplay with flair and style, they also dedicate themselves to bettering the Galaxy. They take time regularly to donate to charities and organize events to fundraise. Check out this recent partnership:

“This week on the Live Star Wars Quiz Show: Please welcome The Inferno Squad – 501st Garrison Tyranus! Inferno Squad is widely known for their extremely popular and successful InfernoCon this past year with the addition of a Holiday Special. They hosted many honorary members including Greg Grunberg, Bobby Moynihan, Christie Golden, TJ Ramini, all while raising an impressive amount for charity. Rumor has it that plans are in the works for even more InfernoCon this upcoming year and I’m sure they can fill us in during the show!
This week’s charity will be The Children’s National Hospital. Please give if you can and we will see you TODAY, Sunday May 2nd at:
12pm (Midday) California USA
3pm Eastern time USA
8pm UK time
9pm France – Italy time
The Live Star Wars Quiz Show is for everyone to play along at home. So come along, grab your friends, make some snacks, and see if YOU can out wit the Quiz Master from The Isle of Wight Garrison.
