The sexy and the silly of Star Wars Celebration VI: Fans show off creative and crazy costumes from across the galaxy

The sexy and the silly of Star Wars Celebration VI: Fans show off creative and crazy costumes from across the galaxy

The Force was strong in Orlando over the past four days as Star Wars Celebration VI drew tens of thousands of fans of the intergalactic franchise together. From August 23-26, 2012, Lucasfilm brought the excitement of the “Star Wars” universe to the Orange County Convention Center for the second official event in a row, following the hugely successful Celebration V in 2010.

Though the massive event featured interesting and exciting exhibits, unforgettable panels, and countless celebrities, the most unique part of Celebration VI was offered by attendees themselves, many showing up (and showing off) in impressive costumes.

From Darth Vaders to Jedis to a wide variety of unusual Stormtroopers, Star Wars Celebration VI was packed with eye-catching outfits, the most creative of which were captured by our cameras. The videos below offer highlights of cosplay found throughout the event, one an overview and the other focusing on one of the most attention grabbing occurrences at every major convention, a gathering of Slave Leias.
