As promised, here are several photos from Star Wars Celebration 2017 in Orlando. These are only a few examples of the many talented cosplayers that came out to celebrate. We had an amazing time in Orlando and although it was our first Star Wars Celebration, it won’t be our last!

In this series we show how to assemble and complete all the parts for an accurate Resistance X-Wing Pilot Costume. These are the flight suits worn by Poe Dameron, Jess Pava, Snap Wexley, Ello Asty, and others Star Wars Characters in The Force Awakens.
