But that’s not all — we also posed this question to some Lucasfilm employees. Check out their answers, and let us know your pick in the comments!
“Star Wars Celebration is my favorite convention to attend, and one thing that I love to do there is to get a tattoo from the artists at Ink Fusion Empire. My first time getting one at Celebration was in 2015, when I got an R2-D2 with a heart hologram by Josh Bodwell. The experience was a lot of fun; it gave me a chance to get a tattoo from an artist I love that isn’t local to me, and I got to leave the convention with a permanent souvenir. I loved it so much that I got another tattoo at Celebration London in 2016. That time, I got a tauntaun with rainbow glitter guts by Rizza Boo. I can’t wait until Celebration Chicago next year to hopefully get another.” – Amanda Jean Camarillo (Digital Production Coordinator, StarWars.com)
“My favorite thing at Star Wars conventions is the large scale builds delivered by such fan groups as the Belgian Star Wars prop crew, the German Project X-1 team, or the 501st Legion in the case of the beloved Roxy the Rancor. Any Star Wars Celebration is a showcase of passion and dedication, but these are the ones that literally stand above the crowds — things like a full-scale TIE fighter, a recreation of the Millennium Falcon interior, a sixth-scale AT-AT walker, or the life-sized dewback I once rode at Celebration Japan 10 years ago. Back in the day when Lucasfilm wasn’t in production on a film, Celebration was literally the only place to see anything like that.” – Pablo Hidalgo (Senior Creative Executive, Lucasfilm Story Group)
