#StarWars #costumes & #cosplayers are rather common, but #cosplaying as a “Star War” vehicle is quite different. #Kotaku shared an article about cosplayers who dress up as “Star Wars” vehicles. Common vehicle #cosplays include an AT-AT, AT-ST, Death Star, TIE fighter & more. Below are a few examples:
AT-ST, Millennium Falcon, TIE fighter:
Imperial Star Destroyer:
Here’s a look at the new #Starfleet uniform #costumes to be used in “#StarTrek #Discovery”:
A #SpiderMan #cosplayer was cheering up kids at a #Houston shelter after the Hurricane #Harvey floods! We highly commend this very charitable cosplayer who understands the positive power of selfless #cosplay #volunteerism!
This is what cosplay is all about!
You’d think that #racism wouldn’t occur in the #cosplay & #costuming community, but it does & here’s a sad example: #Overwatch #cosplayer #bullied because she’s black. It doesn’t matter what race, what culture, what religion, what gender, what sexual orientation, what age or what size you are. Anyone can cosplay any character that they choose to cosplay and it’s time for this community to unite against the bullying, racism & bigotry that continues.
As a cosplayer or costumer, what do you want this hobby to represent? The freedom for anyone to express themselves through the wearing of a costume, or people trying to tell others what they can or cannot wear because of the color of their skin, their gender, or anything else that makes them different from the character that they’re cosplaying?
Remember folks, #cosplay is not consent! Please ask a #costumer or #cosplayer about taking a pic first or before touching them.
Adam Savage is a huge #StarWars fan & loves to #cosplay as iconic character #Chewbacca. To capture the spirit of #TheEmpireStrikesBack, Adam created a C-3PO backpack similar to what Chewbacca wore before he was able to fully reassemble C-3PO, who had been taken apart on the cloud city of Bespin.
In this YouTube video, Adam Savage shows how he put together the C-3PO backpack, complete with animatronics. The video is over 39 minutes long:
Next, here’s the video that Adam Savage shared a month earlier showing him donning the Chewbacca costume with the C-3PO backpack and wearing it incognito at Silicon Valley Comic Con:
2 months before the previous video, Adam Savage had also upgraded his Chewbacca costume bandolier, which he shared on YouTube in February:
Adam Savage demonstrated what it’s like to put on & wear a spacesuit #costume from the #AlienCovenant movie! Created by designers Janty Yates and Michael Mooney, much of the costume was 3D-printed and utilizes bearings to create seamless turning of the various armor components. It’s an amazing costume!
