Emily, a.k.a. EmBelievable Cosplay, dressed as Rey at Anime Revolution but a put a different take on the character from Star Wars: The Force Awakens. She modified the Rey costume slightly to make it more closely match that of Han Solo’s from the original trilogy. Then, instead of of having a BB-8 roll alongside her, she had BBbacca — a combo of BB-8 and Chewbacca. DV8 Props helped her with the transformation. BB-8 started life as a yellow ball, and they covered it in strips of brown and furry fabric (no Wookiees were harmed in the making of this costume). You can see a little in progress work on the Rey costume below and more at Emily’s Instagram feed.
