Cosplayers sometimes band together to build costumes according to a theme, and this group at WonderCon was all about combining Star Wars and Disney. Instead of turning Star Wars characters into Disney princes and princesses or vice versa, they combined Disney characters with Mandalorians. Everyone is wearing armor inspired by what the warrior race wears, and they look incredible. It’s a huge group, and I can’t imagine the amount of coordination involved or the logistics for getting everyone together for this shoot. Redditor randomness3360 said they used templates but tailored them:
“After we cut out and shaped the armor, we individually designed them. We used pvc board for the armor. I built my girlfriends and my helmet from scratch from a construction helmet and Home Depot bucket all from a YouTube video (actually 3 videos). We all had a lot of help from each other and especially Snow White (she started the group) and her bf. All of us had something to pitch in as far as helping each other out though.”
