Best Star Wars Costumes at San Diego Comic-Con 2013

Admiral Ackbar

Everyone’s favorite Mon Calamari, Admiral Ackbar!

Oh, the costumes you’ll see at San Diego Comic-Con! The popular convention draws both professional and first-time cosplayers alike. From sharp-dressed clone troopers to a stunning Lady Vader, Star Wars costumers were out in full Force. Here are some of my favorite Star Wars costumes from San Diego Comic-Con 2013!


Ee chee wa maa! These Ewok cosplayers took a fun and fashionable approach to Yub Nub style.

Steampunk Star Wars 1

This talented group of cosplayers gave Star Wars a Steampunk twist! The details on each of their costumes were astounding. Dina Kampmeyer (cosplaying as Luke Skywalker) even wore tiny power converter earrings!

Dressed as R2-D2 and C-3PO, these young fans show off their Star Wars pride!

Ahsoka Tano

Clone Wars fans (like myself) were excited to spot an Ahsoka Tano walking around the lobby.


The Wolfpack gets suited up! These clone troopers swapped their armor for silk suits and black ties. Looking sharp, boys!

Darth Revan

This striking cosplayer (as Darth Revan) got a glowing effect to her lightsaber thanks to a LightStick!

Imperial Officer

With Lord Vader nowhere in sight, Imperial officer Derrick Schmier took a break from his duties.

Rebel pilot Kim Mah is ready to take on the Empire in style!


Mr. Leia had fun getting into character as the Princess of Alderaan.

Han & Chewie

Han Solo and his co-pilot Chewbacca prepare themselves for their greatest battle yet…waiting in line for Hall H.

Jedi Family

Yes. The Force runs strong in this family.

Lady Vader

The Stylish Geek channeled her dark side for this impressive cosplay. With two Scout Troopers by her side, Lady Vader reigned supreme on the con floor.

Cad Bane 1

The crowd seemed to part as ruthless bounty hunter Cad Bane made a chilling appearance.

Asajj Ventress

I was excited (and a wee bit frightened) to spot one of my favorite villainesses, Asajj Ventress.


It took cosplayer Christine Dennis an hour and a half to get into full Twi’lek makeup!

Tusken Raider

As I approached the Kotobukiya booth, a Tusken Raider appeared! Immediately I thought, “perhaps I’ll order that Boba Fett ice tray online…”
