I don’t usually come into the office on Saturday’s (and after seeing Watson sleeping in the cafeteria in his underwear with tear stained cheeks surrounded by empty tubs of rum and butter ice cream I wish I hadn’t) but wanted to share some videos coming out of Comic-Con.  A lot of exciting stuff coming up.

Up first, a behind the scenes look at JJ Abrams new movie Star Wars: The Force Awakens.  You may have heard of it.  Potentially minor spoilers if you are weary of such things.

Short Documentary Of Why Star Wars Cosplay Is Timeless

boom

Hopefully you were able to see all the amazing cosplay that came out of the Star Wars Celebration this past month. But if you missed it, never fear, Cosplay Boom captured it, along with the touching stories of the people who spend numerous amounts of hours to recreate the characters from a galaxy far far away. Many of the costumes look like they were plucked straight out of the film, but some of the most creative examples are those that blend a cosplayer’s varied passions into one outfit – like the famous Hip-Hop Stormtrooper pictured above.

You’ll want to grab a tissue or at least have your handy “IT WAS ALLERGIES” excuse ready to go, because this video is amazing:
