Hello dedicated readers! As you know, it's been a while since Celebration VI happened. Normally I do a huge write-up about all the events within a week or so, but this time I had work commitments which prevented that. And now that so much time has passed, it seems a bit silly to give a summary (especially given the exceptional job Darth Danno has done writing up his experiences).
My write-ups normally get a huge number of hits, so I felt kinda bad not doing one for all the fans. But then I thought about it, and the only reason I get a ton of hits to those pages is because of the photos I post of all the pretty Cosplay girls. I didn't take as many photos this years as in years past, but I can still share! So here are all my best photos from Celebration VI! Enjoy!
First up we have a Boushh. Normally you wouldn't call Boushh "hot" because the costume covers up everything, and you have no idea what's underneath. But there's always imagination.
Here is a triplet of Slave Leias. This was my only group Slave Leia shot, because the official group shot was an absolute madhouse. I'm sure you can find plenty of those online if you look around.
While I was at the PSWCS booth, one of the members told me "There's this really cute Padme over in the next aisle." So I walked over to the next aisle.
OK, these next two photos have a bit of a story to them. One of my buddies came up to me all aglow because while waiting in the main line to enter the convention center he was behind this really cute girl who had this awesome "Han Shot First" tattoo on her leg. The next day I'm walking around snapping photos and I see this Slave Leia. So I ask for a photo. Then I notice her leg. It was the same girl! So I took another photo of the tat just to make my buddy jealous.
I took this photo over by the Mandos. I have no clue who this is. But you know those Mandos... they pretty much do whatever they want.
This Slave Leia was doing naughty poses against a Darth Vader... putting on a show for a bunch of gawkers.
You may recognize this Oola as "Scruffy Rebel" the famous cosplay artist. I actually didn't recognize her right away because she seemed a lot thinner than the last time I saw her. Kudos for hitting the gym!
Here's a tattoo that caught my eye. Friend of Shane's, I believe...
And one last Slave Leia... just passing in the hallway.
One other tradition I have at Celebrations is to take photos of Star Wars celebrities with the CreatureCantina.com SUCKS! sign. But ever since they started doing "Froggy" photos I haven't been able to snag the actors I really need. And I already had photos of pretty much every other guest. So I ended up only taking two of them. The first was with C7YB celebrity Mike Tricomi. Mike saw me waiting in line for the Collectors Track and ran up and introduced himself. Very cool to be recognized and to give props to a true fan of my work!
And the other photo I took was with Star Wars MEGA-celebrity Ken "ElvisTrooper" Tarleton. And I can think of no more fitting way to wrap up this Celebration VI wrap-up...
