There is nothing like Star Wars Celebration. Where else can fans gather once a year to experience all things Star Wars? From panels with Star Wars heroes like Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher to having a seat at the Mos Eisley Cantina, Celebration is heaven for any Star Wars fan. One of my favorite aspects of the con is seeing all the epic Star Wars costumes. It’s truly a place where creativity, craft, and originality abound! I couldn’t capture them all but here are some of my favorite costumes from Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim!
EMPEROR PALPATINE AND HIS IMPERIAL WALKER
This cosplayer glued foam pieces to a walker, thus creating this clever Imperial Walker.
A ferociously cute take on that infamous creature from Hoth.
BOBA FETT & TRANDOSHAN
Apparently bounty hunters don’t like having their picture taken…
LYN ME AND GREEATA JENDOWANIAN
Jabba’s dancers bask in their moment of freedom from the Hutt.
By the end of Star Wars Celebration, I felt a little like this guy.
WICKET THE EWOK
This cosplayer took a more feminine approach to her Ewok costume. It’s Yub Nub chic!
In other Endor news…you can’t repel cuteness of this magnitude.
This costume was operated by two cosplayers on stilts inside the AT-AT’s legs. It was pretty incredible watching the AT-AT slowly walk through the crowd. The best part was when a tiny Luke Skywalker (attached to a tow cable) lowered from the belly of the AT-AT!
HARLEY LEIA AND JOKER FETT
A fun mashup of Star Wars and Batman’s villains, Harley Quinn and the Joker. The only person who doesn’t seem to be enjoying himself is Bat-Jabba.
RAINBOW DASH TROOPER & PINKIE PIE IMPERIAL OFFICER
Even in the Galactic Empire, friendship is magic.
BABY REBEL PILOT
The Rebel Alliance’s secret weapon? Adorable baby pilots.
THE SOLO FAMILY – HAN & LEIA (RETURN OF THE JEDI COSTUMES)
Because it’s never too early to introduce your child to the awesomeness of Star Wars.
LUKE, MINI LEIA, ARTOO MAMA
Families that cosplay together, stay together.
LEGO WICKET (EWOK)
Ee chee wa maa! This giant LEGO Wicket is going to haunt my dreams.
The Justice League, Star Wars style.
Move over Buzz Lightyear, there’s a new “space ranger” in town and he wields the power of the Force.
The Mos Eisley Cantina set was well-guarded thanks to the awesome, Amanda Jean.
I first saw the Muppet Troopers at Star Wars Celebration in Orlando. Needless to say, I screamed like an Animal.
BARF FROM SPACEBALLS
Actress Milynn Sarley is so beautiful, she makes Barf look good!
Doesn’t everyone deserve the chance to join the Empire?
GEEK CHIC MOM & DAUGHTER
If you don’t feel like wearing a costume, this is the perfect way to make a Star Wars fashion statement.
A stylish and original take on Han Solo’s costume from A New Hope, complete with a Chewie backpack!
PINUP REBEL PILOT
Clothing Designer Linda Heredia fights the Empire in style! She handmade her Rebel pilot jumper and her helmet purse was custom made by a friend.
