Star Wars fans do the best costplay!
It’s time for another round of Star Wars cosplay – which is great because there’s been a whole heap of awesome stuff done – the Star Wars universe is so wide and interesting that there is always some new twist of design to look at – there’s an actual Admiral Ackbar with presumably matching sea legs, a cute ‘boy and his dog’ version of besties forever Han and Chewie and the obligatory Leia in a slave bikini.
It's awesome to see how just advanced cosplay has become. Participation in the practice is nearly mandatory at every gaming convention that opens its doors. No longer to you put on your favourite t-shirt, you were the armour of your hero that you made yourself in your garage or you where that figure hugging costume that took you 200 hours to make. And you love it, because you love Star Wars.
This one is quite special. At the face of it is a boy dressing up as Han Solo and having an adventure with his most trusted friend, his dog.
But what is it really? It’s a mum or dad making him a costume.
It’s a mum or dad taking time to set up a photo.
It’s an exposition on friendship and it’s a child’s leap into imagination land, a place where many cosplayers never leave.
|Someone who loves you, now let's move if fly boy!|
