Thursday was a great, leisurely day to stroll through the enormous vendor room at SWC and check out the art and exhibits that are sure to be crowded later. Not too many costumes around, but here are my favorites of the ones we did see:
Now prepare to squee over some epic baby Leia cuteness:
Which reminds me: I need to make a list of all the different Storm Trooper mash-ups I've seen. So far this weekend we've seen this guy, several Muppet troopers, an Elvis one, Jack Sparrow (yes, really), and Minnie Mouse. I have no doubt I'll be seeing tons more tomorrow, too.
These guys were super fun and original:
There's a charity auction at the con (benefiting Make-A-Wish) consisting of all modified Clone Trooper or Fett Helmets. The participating artists either painted or remade each helmet entirely, and there are too many jaw-droppingly amazing ones to list. I'll have more photos in my Flickr account, but here's a small sampling:
If I had to sum up SWC with one photo, this would be a strong contender:
Oh, and I cannot believe how many of you readers have found us so far for pins. We've already run out! I have to get up early tomorrow to make more! Last Celebration I think we had maybe half a dozen fans find us, so color me gobsmacked. I guess you guys just needed a Vader-riding-a-My-Little-Pony as incentive? Ha! Anyway, all that to say; it is SO much fun meeting you guys, so please, if you haven't yet, track us down to say hi!
And stay tuned for photos of Lady Vadore on the con floor, and so much more! But no more rhyming. I mean it.
(In the meantime, you can see the rest of my photos over on Flickr.)
