One of the greatest things about San Diego Comic-Con is getting to see all the incredible costumes fans make! Whether a cosplayer spends a day or a year on their creation, their costumes are always a fun sight on the convention floor. Nothing is more exciting than seeing your favorite heroes or villains in person! This year we saw everything from an impressive looking AT-ST to a rhinestone-encrusted Stormtrooper. Here are some of my favorite Star Wars costumes from SDCC 2012!
No battles to fight today! Pilot Nien Nunb gives us a thumbs up on his con experience.
This Wookiee could be a contestant on Kashyyyk’s Top Model! Cosplayer Catherine Fisher used 5 lbs of faux fur to create her amazing costume.
80 degree weather is a far cry from the snowy planet of Hoth, but this Snowtrooper (Barry Chan of the 501st Legion) braves the heat.
Clothing designer Sofi Leggett proves that a Wampa can be more “fierce" than ferocious.

An elegant and adorable little Princess Leia!
An AT-ST outside the convention center?! I have a bad feeling about this…
Look who we have here, it’s Lando Calrissian!
It’s an R2-Tutu! This cosplayer takes a fun approach on her costume of our beloved Astromech Droid.
A menacing Darth Maul stands guard in the Lucasfilm Pavillion.
The only scruffy thing about this dapper duo is the hair on Leia’s chin.
A cute, little Sith Princess shows us the power of the pinkside!
Cool, hip, and 100% Rebel.
Dark Helmet was not amused when offered yogurt for lunch.
