When cosplayers compete in costume masquerades at convention, a skit of some kind is usually required. It can be a monologue from whatever franchise the character is from, dancing, an original scene — the options are endless. Sometimes there’s a time limit, but when cosplayers are allowed to take their time, you never know what they’ll come up with. At San Diego Comic-Con this year, one group of Star Wars cosplayers went for the gold and combined the galaxy far, far away with the musical Newsies. The “King of the Force” is a parody of “King of New York,” and it’s creative and well done. It clearly took a lot of work to put together. One of the cosplayers — Sir Rogue — said:
We won the Judge’s Choice trophy award, and company awards from Lucasfilm (a bundle of Celebration merch), Robert Acer’s Entertainment award ($2000) and the new Will Eisner “Spirit of Storytelling” award ($500 and limited edition Eisner prints).
Costumes worn, designed and made by: Andrew, Caitlin, Jim, John, Mike, Rouge, Shea, Steph, Leann, Meredith and Russ.
