Fandom mashups have become pretty popular online. Can't really go far without getting hit with a "what if ___ met ____?" scenario or piece of art - and there's a reason for that. People love combining their favorite stories in their minds, taking familiar characters and putting them in new and exciting settings and wondering what might happen. In this case... a galaxy far, far away.
What's remarkable about this particular example of a familiar concept aside from the impressive costumes is the focus on one singular concept (Boba Fett in this case, remixed Disney style, and awesome each time) - and the number of cosplayers involved. This is a pretty impressive collection of Disney favorites with a Star Wars twist.
Here's the description from photographer York In A Box's album on Facebook:
Various photos from a Disney/Star Wars mashup themed shoot featuring:
Hendo Art (Pocahontas), LifeofShel (Anna), Eberle Cosplay (Hans), Ashlynne Dae (Elsa), Amber Arden (Snow White), Miley TinyThunder (Tinkerbell), Chris Villain (Peter Pan), Maid of Might Cosplay (Rapunzel), Rian Synnth Cosplay (Mulan), Darth Hater (Boba Fett), and Traci Hines (Ariel)!
I added the character names after the cosplayers' for ID-ing ease, along with some linkage to their individual profiles if you feel like checking out your faves. Every cosplayer here did an amazing job and deserves applause! I highly recommend browsing every one of their galleries for more amazing cosplay and makeup art.
You can check out the entire collection here in one handy Facebook photo album - or scroll on for your viewing pleasure and see my favorites. Though with amazing shoots like this with everybody bringing their cosplay A-game, it's really hard to pick just one or two per character...
You'll notice that all of these characters have the same theme. They've used Boba Fett as a starting point, and then incorporated their individual versions of their Disney characters. Honestly I think that's a pretty interesting choice, focusing on one character - it shows how different each interpretation can be, demonstrating a lot of variations on a single theme. (It also makes me think this could be a badass round in a cosplay competition, everyone putting their own spin on one concept... but in this case I'd be hard-pressed to pick a winner.)
Bounty hunter Rapunzel after space outlaw Flynn. I actually would love to see that.
Oh my gosh. Please observe this tiny wonderful cosplayer. I am so glad that my life now contains knowledge of the existence of Tinkerbell Fett. Starting off the amazing cosplay journey young! Does my geeky heart good.
I just really love how well everyone kept consistently to their characters' appearance and attitudes - everyone is immediately clear and identifiable as their Disney character, and the costume design incorporates both styles so well. It's just so great to see mashups done really right.
One more of Tinkerbell, now with size comparison - and an original flavor Boba Fett, rocking the classic look.
And here they all are one more time. Take in the awesome. Did anyone especially make your jaw drop? (Or are you like me, just in a general state of Oh Wow Everything Is Wonderful?) Sound off in the comments!
And lastly, my usual disclaimer - as always, thank you so much for reading, and please keep all commentary respectful. Remember that the artists are human like you, and they do it all on their own time, for the love of the art and the characters. Rock on, and see you again real soon!
