17 ‘Star Wars’ Cosplayers Who Prove The Awesome Is Strong With These Ones
This year, Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim gave us so much to geek out about. A new trailer for “The Force Awakens!” More details about the “Rogue One” spin-off! A new “Star Wars: Battlefront” game! The unbearable cuteness of BB-8!
But as with any convention, it’s all of the exceptional cosplay that takes a large gathering of nerds and make it into something truly special. Here are just a few of our favorites:

That kid must be an amazing pilot. It must take a lot of skill to maneuver a ship through space that can pop at the slightest bit of pressure! Imperial Stormtrooper Muppets
Beaker Boba Fett is inspired — and tragic. Suddenly I feel even worse about him falling into a Sarlacc pit. Hans Solo and Slave Elsa

Our cruisers can’t repel sexiness of that magnitude!

“Pain leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering. On a scale from 1 to 10, how would you rate your pain?”

Well that was fast! Can’t wait to see more people rocking this look.
“Star Wars Rebels”

The family that cosplays together, stays together.

Our new favorite droid already has its fair share of fans.

Some background: Every year at Star Wars Celebration, fans get together to cosplay a ridiculously minor character from the background of a scene in “The Empire Strikes Back” named Wilrod Hood (also known as the “Ice Cream Maker Guy” because of the contraption he’s holding).

We’d like to think Steve Rogers would be one of the Rebels, but this Stormtrooper inspired look is still pretty rad.
Tony Stark, though? HE’D be all about the Imperial life. They have much better toys for him to play with.
Hound Vader and Sith Lord Elsa
Yeah, with all of Arendelle siding against her and her supernatural powers, Elsa would probably turn to the Dark Side of the Force — especially if “Game of Thrones”’s Sandor Clegane were egging her on.

Be on the lookout for his newest track, “Force Ghosts ’n’ Stuff.”
Baby Lando Calrissian

Truly you belong with us, here among the nerds.
Han Solo in Carbonite
Someone should direct this guy to one of the Elsas — they know a thing or two about being frozen.

There isn’t much else we can say about these two than EEEEEEEE!
