The group goes to conventions and special events along with charity work for less fortunate children, all while dressed up. They say one of the best parts of the group is the reactions from people.
"They all run up, they want to get their picture taken with us. Lot of the kids want to lightsaber fight with Lord Vader," says 501st Legion member, James Kaye.
