The talent and dedication of these fans really blew me away when I attended Celebration this weekend. I wish I could have gotten photos of every incredible cosplayer I ran across, but you can check out the ones I was lucky enough to meet in the gallery below.
My jaw actually dropped when I saw Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon who looked exactly like Alec Guiness and Liam Neeson. I was charmed by the little boy dressed up as George Lucas.
Cosplayers like to be creative and I saw that in full force with interpretative costumes. Many fans crossed franchises – such as a Captain America Jedi, Tinkerbell bounty hunter, or Meg from Disney’s Hercules as Han Solo!
Characters from Star Wars seemed to time travel as I ran across an ancient Celtic Stormtrooper, a dapper Stormtrooper (mustache and all!), and felt the power of the 19th century industrial boom with steampunk creations. Just look at Princess Leia in a corset, blaster in hand and boasting several cool gadgets. Or a female Boba Fett in a 19th century dress, complete with a parasol.
And did you ever think you’d see Boba Fett as a Playboy Bunny posing with Vader? I didn’t think so.
I’m still amazed by all the cosplayers I saw. You all made for a truly memorable weekend.
