Favorite Costumes from Star Wars Celebration V

I will not miss another Celebration if I can help it. I got to attend for just two very short days this year, and being in the presence of thousands of other Star Wars fans... well, it was epic. I will have plenty of wrap up posts this week, but for now, here are my favorite costumes from the event. I saw evey incarnation of Padme, more Slave Leias than I can remember, a lot of Mara Jades, and several other characters from the EU.

Beautiful embroidery on this Bespin Leia costume.  I believe she and her mother did it by hand.

Shaak Ti - those head pieces looked incredibly uncomfortable.

Steampunk Boba Fett, how could I not love it?

The construction of this was pretty brilliant.  The little R2 in the back of course made noises.  It didn't look it was too heavy, but I still admire this girl for wearing such a cumbersome costume.

Cutest Ahsoka costume ever.  I liked this Chewbacca too; he had Threepio on his back and obliged the audience (Star Wars paparazzi, really) with lots of Wookiee growls.

Bossk the bounty hunter.  I've never seen anyone do this costume before, and this person looked awesome.

  2. The gal in the first pic (Leia) is beautiful and I am glad to see my padawan Ainsley made the list as well. I taught to fear no one at cons and to pose like a jedi (SDCC 2007 and 08). I miss her and her family.

  3. I was floored by the detail on these costumes!

    Jedi-J - The Bespin Leia costume was so well done. Which one is Ainsley?
