The obvious choice for a Star Wars cosplay is Princess Leia. Long flowy white dress, white and silver belt, ridiculous bun hair, and maybe a blaster, and you're all done. Forget about casual cosplay--you could probably go full-on Princess Leia without even trying too hard. But, as much as I love Princess Leia, I wasn't feeling up to dressing up as one of the most badass female heroes in cinema on a day when I barely got five hours of sleep.
Princess Leia is a take charge, kickass kind of lady; and today I wanted to blend in. I guess you could say, I didn't want to be the droid people were looking for. So today, I took the opportunity to play a quieter, yet still pivotal role in the world. The role of R2-D2.
