A while back I had the pleasure of attending Star Wars Celebration: Anaheim, the 7th such convention in the history of the Star Wars franchise.
The Lady Shawnon had bought our tickets fully nineteen months before the actual event with the statement that "that should be more than enough time for you to come up with costumes for us to wear." She was right... ...kinda.
Among the many outfits I ended up putting together, were these four:
The girl with the blaster rifle was the Lady Shawnon in her Shae Vizla bounty hunter costume based on the trailers for the Star Wars: the Old Republic MMORPG. I'll get around to writing that one up. The important thing to know is that she looks even cooler when she's not all by herself. You can read about that build here: LINK.
The three lightsaber-wielding gentlemen were Sith Acolytes from the same game. You can see one of the videos that inspired the build here:
Here's a great photo showcasing one of the finished costumes:
