This is hilarious for Star Wars geeks like me! I was Princess Leia (the modest version) once for Halloween, but I find cosplay conventions a little over-the-top and filled with too many perverted weirdos like the complaining nerd in this video LOL!

And replace our beloved R2-D2?! Never! Chopper from Star Wars Rebels is a close second, but R2 will always be #1 in this fangirl’s heart. :D
