Episode 6: Costumes and Community

We can fight and argue all day about what Star Wars media is good or bad, but I feel like we all can agree on one thing; the Prop and Costume Departments are on point.

**For a quick primer on this episode please check my original post when we thought we we’re going to have this out a few weeks ago…thanks Ian’s ‘illness’**

Star Wars has some of the our favorite props and costumes and you know who else does? The Star Wars Fans. Join Ian, Jon, and our friend Caitlin as they discuss their experiences dressing up at Wondercon 2018 and pretending to be part of a Galaxy Far Far Away.

We even surprise interviewed a few members of the most well known costuming groups to get their opinions on the fan costume and prop community.

PS, this episode ran a little long, so we cut out the original intro segment and released it on it’s own. Hooray Content!
