10 Galactic Costumes from Star Wars Celebration #SWCA

Star Wars Celebration took place last weekend in Anaheim, and it was four days of all Star Wars all the time. It’s unlike any other convention I attend because it’s focused on a single fandom. Everyone is enthusiastic, passionate, and kind. The vibe is positive and welcoming, and that leads to so much creativity. Fans especially pour their hearts into costumes, and all eras of Star Wars were represented. I spotted cosplay from Star Wars Rebels, The Force Awakens, Star Wars: The Clone Wars, the original and prequel trilogies – everything. It warmed my Hoth-like heart. Here are 10 of the coolest costumes I saw:
