Walking around at Star Wars Celebration meant seeing costumes from the galaxy far, far away that you don’t normally see. Case in point: The Force Awakens era Han Solo. I don’t see enough cosplayers tackle the older smuggler; the character’s a couple decades older than the last time we saw him in Return of the Jedi. However, Redditor Wolverony nailed the look. He captured the costume, the makeup, and the hair. He constructed the wig just for this costume and it’s just right. He looked so much like older Solo that Harrison Ford’s makeup artist stopped him. Wolverony says:
Ford’s Make Up Artist and Hairstylist did in fact stop me, took a selfie and sent it to Harrison’s phone. They thought I was him from the back, and that I had done a quick change until they walked up closer to engage me in conversation. They also showed me pics of his stunt double for comparison from TFA and it was a very surreal moment.
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
