Day 3 of SWCVI was all about the cosplayers! I got a little break during the day and I spent the whole time gawking at all the awesome costumes. There are some seriously creative and talented people out there. These costumes are on a whole other level. There was a cybernetic Darth Maul, a screen-accurate Gamorrean Guard, and so many more. One of the highlights of the day was getting to interview Chewbacca himself! What?!
This Chewie cosplayer was seriously dedicated. Not only was he on stilts, he also created the entire costume himself! He even made a mold of his face for the mask. Like I said, these cosplayers are on a whole other level of awesome. I got inspired and couldn’t stop taking photos of everyone!
It’s a ghost trap!
Mini Boba Fett & Ahsoka Tano joined forces in the kids craft room!
I didn’t have the heart to tell Jar Jar I blew up his action figure.
Jabba captured Hello Kitty!
Mother Talzin made a dramatic entrance
This cosplayer is my kind of scum. Fearless and inventive…
“Hey Greedo, can I get a shot? Uh…I mean photo?”
Cosplaying kids is my kryptonite.

I also had a chance to meet my online friends Jon & Piggy in person! Piggy is a little Gamorrean Guard action figure that travels to conventions and other Star Wars events. Jon is Piggy’s owner and he’s such a kind person. It was great to finally meet him and Piggy face to face (and snout).
Day 3 was perhaps my busiest day yet! I definitely loved going around the con floor and interviewing all the cosplayers. Being a StarWars.com field reporter and getting to talk about Star Wars all day was awesome and surreal. I wish I could do it everyday! Guess it’s good motivation for me to get back into vlogging! : )
