ComicCon's best Star Wars costumes

Bonnie sez, "When you’re at San Diego Comic-Con, it’s nearly impossible to walk more than a few feet and not run into a fan in costume. Every year the convention center is flooded with various versions of superheroes, video game characters, horror film icons, pirates, steampunk kids, vampires, werewolves, manga and anime favorites, food mascots and of course lots and lots of Star Wars characters. Even though it seemed the Joker costumes dominated the con, the 501st and Rebel Legion were out in full force, as were fans dressed as Yoda, Darth Vader, Chewbacca, Princess Leia, Jedi and even a couple of TIE Fighters. Here’s a recap of some of the best costumes we spotted." Comic-Con: Best Star Wars Costumes (Thanks, Bonnie!)


  1. I went to one of those conventions and saw some performances from the 501st troopers, and I admire their coordination; always plenty of Stormtroopers, but only one Darth..

    They must hold an election or something.

  2. According to (not the best of sources, I agree) it seems that the one Darth Vader is actually David Prowse. If that is the case, then yes, I wouldn’t want to try to upstage him.

  3. It’s great time. But my Jedi robe and high boots were just too fracking hot to wear for long. So I stripped right down to the Superman costume that I use as underwear. The cape is a real pain in the ass (well, you’ve got to stow somewhere)!

  4. @ Moon – the steampunk costumes were few and far between this year. But there was an awesome trio I wished I’d taken a photo of.

    That pretty in pink Vader has got to be the winner of all those Star Wars one! I wonder whose idea it was to dress her up like that?

  5. My three-year-old daughter would do back-flips around the block for that Princess Vader mash-up.

    But then… it was a lot of work for us to make custom Mahna-Mahna costumes last Halloween: not sure we’d be up for this.

  6. I think there will be much more Star Trek next year as the new movie is out. Star Wars have had a lot of movies and had attention for many years.
