Laurence Bevan created this costume to appear as Darth Vader using Fibreglass Resin & Gel Coat supplied by Bentley. Laurence appears as part of The UK Garrison. The UK Garrison forms part of the 501st Legion, an international Star Wars costuming group. Through the hard work and dedication of the late Graham Campbell, the UK Garrison was born on the 23rd March 2000. From its initial ten members, over the last decade the group has gone from strength to strength and now has over 300 ‘troopers’ in its ranks. The Garrison is respected throughout the world for creating some of the most screen-accurate Star Wars costumes ever seen.
The 501st Legion is an all-volunteer group and through the work of its members, prides itself on supporting local communities through costumed charity and volunteer work. With the express permission of George Lucas’ empire, LucasFilm, the members of the UK Garrison have raised over £1 million for children’s charities, attended over 2000 events and through their work with the Make-A-Wish foundation, granted over 50 wishes.
