This year's Star Wars Celebration isn't taking place in a galaxy far, far away, but for those of us traveling around the world to be there, it sure feels like it. That didn't stop some of the most devoted fans in the universe from dressing to the nines for the opening day of the annual event. One of the great things about Star Wars is how it's inspired so many fans to interpret all the great characters we know and love with their own style, or in the case of a number of clever folks, creating all-new personas set in this universe.

From the original saga, to The Force Awakens, to the animated shows, comics and beyond, these are the best Star Wars cosplays from day one of Star Wars Celebration.

You might think at this point in the Star Wars saga, you've seen all there is to see when it comes to cosplay, but if anything, Star Wars Celebration Europe has shown quite the opposite. I know I'll never get tired of the intricate details of Padme Amidala costuming, and how anyone is able to replicate that delicate couture themselves is nothing short of amazing. While you may have seen Han Solo, Leia Organa and the Jedi before, there's something special about seeing every different version, from the smallest details to the beaming proudness each cosplay displays. And to everyone capable of creating their own characters, I bow in respect. Y'all can do bad-ass all by yourselves.
