One of the best things about Celebration is the cosplay. People come up with some of the best costumes. The hard part is getting pictures as it’s usually coincidental when you run into that awesome cosplay. Sometimes you see them going down an escalator and there’s no chance for a picture. Other times there’s a place you have to be when you catch a glance of a great costume. But sometimes you spot them and you have the time to get a picture. Well, here’s our roundup of the cosplay pics we captured from Star Wars Celebration Orlando 2017.
Our recap of day four of Star Wars Celebration Orlando 2017.
Sunday is typically the quietest day of Celebration, and breezing through the security checkpoint, it looked like that might pan out. There were no big panels on Sunday that I was interested in, so I skipped all the wristbanding and went straight to the queue for the show floor. However, if I had wanted to see anything, there were already two panels that were sold out by 7:40 AM: Hamill Himself and the Closing Ceremony on the main stage.
First things first, I grabbed the last Cardamundi giveaway card. Unfortunately I missed out on Saturday’s so I didn’t get a complete set. Regardless, I didn’t have much on my agenda, so I wandered the show floor a bit then got in line for some author autographs. Continue Reading On Station At Celebration: Day 4…

Here’s our recap of day three at Star Wars Celebration Orlando 2017.
Saturday is typically the busiest day of Celebration, but this year all four days ended up being busy. The interesting thing about Saturday this year, though, was the lack of a huge panel with universal draw. Everyone wanted to go to the 40th Anniversary panel and The Last Jedi panel. On Saturday, there was no one panel that drew a humongous crowd.
I got to the convention center at 6:00 AM and wristbands were still available for all panels. The primary panel on my wish list was the Star Wars Rebels panel and the line was a breeze as they had six people giving out wristbands which helped the line move very quickly. I opted to not get any other wristbands that day. Continue Reading On Station At Celebration: Day 3…
