Now that everyone is finally starting to come down from the excitement that was the [Star Wars: Episode VII — The Force Awakens](movie:711158) trailer, we're starting to kick back into hyperdrive with our love of all things Star Wars.

While it's nearly impossible to attend any kind of convention without running into at least one Star Wars cosplayer donning Star Wars centric garb. Today, I'm going to feature a few of my favorite gender swapped Star Wars cosplayers!

1. Luke Skywalker

Complete with a Yoda backpack. The murky climate on Dagobah seems to have cleared up a bit.

2. Leia Organa

Props to Ryan from Mad Art Lab for creating a fantastic "Slave Leo" cosplay that isn't simply throwing on the typical bikini and taking on the challenging task of going outside of his comfort zone.

3. Han Solo

Chelsea Bloxsom knows that hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good blaster at your side, kid.

4. Chewbacca

What do you think Wookiees look like when shaved? Probably not as great as this lovely lady Chewie.

5. R2D2 and C-3PO

Not only are these two droids gender bent, but they've also switched careers. Both R2D2 and C-3PO have become beautiful, graceful ballerinas.

6. Darth Vader

The best part about this Lady Vader is that she also has included a tutorial for how she created this awesome Sith Lord getup.

7. Boba Fett

Although I imagine it'd be tricky being such a scantily clad bounty hunter, there's no denying that LeeAnna Vamp looks absolutely stunning as Boba Fett.

8. Darth Maul

Even if you weren't a fan of Phantom Menace, it's safe to say that Darth Maul's double-bladed lightsaber was plain awesome.

9. Greedo

Although the overzealous Rodian, Greedo, didn't make it past the Mos Eisley cantina, his death has become hotly contested after the 1997 Special Edition re-releases. We all know Han shot first.

These were just a few of my personal favorite, but I'm sure there are plenty more instances of these gender-bent Star Wars characters! Feel free to add your favorites in the comments section.
