So I had the longest dream of my life last night. I went to the new Celebration and was having a blast, it genuinely felt like I spent 4 days at celebration. Then it turned into a nightmare because Sunday hit and I was unprepared, so I ended up wasting a day and I had anxiety because all I kept thinking was “I need to make the most of it”. That being said, Celebration is a magical event, the energy that it carries cannot be described, it is a Hard Core Star Wars fans heaven. But the last two times I went I very much did not plan out the last day, Anaheim worked out because and amazing guy and good friend Nathan Henley who hooked it up with some jedi master badges, but coke ration Orlando I did not plan and the last day was filled with anxiety that the event was about to be done.
I say this all because if there are two pieces of advice that I can give a new Celebration goer,it’s this- meet new people, make amazing friendships with others who share your romance with the saga, those friendships will last forever. Last piece of advice is to plan plan plan, try and hit a bit of everything. Meet a celebrity or two, hit a big panel, go to a party, take pictures with all the prop booths, watch a droid race, sign up for a fan club, hit a collector circuit, trade swag, and make sure to go to the official shop and buy something to commemorate the best weekend ever. Celebration is such an awesome experience and the reason why is because it offers so much, but it can also be overwhelming if you don’t know what you are doing. I am so pumped for 2019 and can’t wait to see all the amazing friends that I have made over the years and share some new stories. Star Wars Celebration is like a high school/family reunion for all the people you want to see and share the most passion with.
"General Kenobi. Years ago you served my father in the Clone Wars. Now he begs you to help him in his struggle against the Empire. I regret that I am unable to present my father's request to you in person, but my ship has fallen under attack, and I'm afraid my mission to bring you to Alderaan has failed. I have placed information vital to the survival of the Rebellion into the memory systems of this R2 unit. My father will know how to retrieve it. You must see this droid safely delivered to him on Alderaan. This is our most desperate hour. Help me, Obi-Wan Kenobi. You're my only hope."
Day 2 of #fallintoDisneyStyle : Pins!
I have such a huge collections of pins but these two Star Wars Celebration exclusives are by far my favorite in my collection.... Until I can get a hold of the Porg AP exclusive one. 😃
I just finished reading the new Leia novel, Princess of Alderaan, by @claudia_gray and I cannot find the right words to describe what I feel. I have a newfound love for Bail and Breha, and have learned so much more about the princess we all know and love. I thought of this picture I took at SWCO and love it even more now. I highly recommend this book to anyone with a love for Leia and Star Wars, I've never been one for reading but wow do I want more of this✨
So Nicole, Frank and Myself had just gotten off the bus that had taken us back to where we'd parked (the Orange County convention center is actually massive xD ) and right off the bus I see @nightshinecosplay !!! I had hoped to run into her TuT! We got to chat with her a little bit before Galactic Nights and it was worth it! She's so kind and precious and I hope she doesn't mind the picture post xD it's so cute! #starwars#starwarscelebration#starwarscelebrationorlando#swco please check her out! Her cosplay is absolutely inspiring and extraordinary!!
Friday of SWCO ends by running into Johna of @thewookieegunner !! It was surreal to actually meet the kind and inspiring Star Wars friends! Even saw my first BB8 before Disney and a Poe!! XD so cute! Had to also get a pic with the glorious ceiling sculpture. Included @nmallenart and Rex on Leave too!! It was an amazing Friday! I also got to meet Temuera Morrison and Daniel Logan (Jango and Boba) and we were running late because of me and my Jango photo op xD #starwarscelebration#starwarscelebrationorlando#hondoohnaka#ahsokatano#rexonleave#orangecountyconventioncenter#bb8#poedameron this pretty much ends Friday at the con and we were on our way to Galactic Nights!
Went to the #centerofthegalaxy con up in OKC with @hopelessecko and @coralsnake this weekend and we stayed at this awesome hotel that used to be a factory and is also an art exhibit? It was really fricken cool, and they had this little ducky in the bathroom for us if we needed a bathing buddy xD had to get a pic of him, my #roadhog piggy mask that Mel bought me at @tokyointulsa last weekend and the #BB8 shirt Misty got me at #starwarscelebrationorlando when she went! It has him as an orange since it was in Florida xD we are home now, Misty has to work tonight (got called in) and Mel and I are gunna work on more #junkerscosplay *^* I need my shoulder tire done and soon!
