In cosplay circles, just as in cinematic ones, it can sometimes feel like the Rebels have all the fun. So at this year’s Star Wars Celebration in Chicago, the Empire decided to have a party of their own, really let their (regulation-length) hair down.

The event was called Cocktails Over Coruscant, and was actually the third time it’s been held at SWC; it’s just the first time we’ve been able to cover it, thanks to Mineralblu’s attendance.

I’m disappointed in the lack of Black TIE jokes, but aside from that it’s all excellent. I especially love how nearly every single one of them is able to pull the exact same “yes Lord Vader” facial expression. Even when they’re tucking into an ice cream.
