100 photos from the Chicago mega-convention
Star Wars Celebration 2019 in Chicago has come to close. One of the best things about this massive convention is the cosplay. From camera-ready, professional-looking costumes by veteran cosplayers to creative DIY outfits and makeup from newbies, this year's Celebration cosplay did not disappoint.
This gallery of Star Wars Celebration cosplayers only represents a fraction of the costumes and the creative magic that fans put into celebrating the characters of the Star Wars Universe in Chicago.
Ahsoka Tano is a fan-favorite and there were many excellent cosplays of her. Here's one of her look from the final episode of Star Wars Rebels. After the preview of the new episodes of The Clone Wars, cosplayers have a new look for Ahsoka for next Celebration.
