As a follow up to yesterday’s Star Wars Cosplay post, today we’re featuring some of our favorite Star Wars Rebels cosplay blog posts. It is, after all, the Revenge of the 5th.
It’s not easy to cosplay an alien. The effort usually requires a little extra work in the makeup and prosthetic department. Cosplay Amber Brite has experience crafting add-ons like lekku or headtails from the Star Wars universe. She recently applied those skills to making the headdress for an Ahsoka Tano costume.
