My most memorable Star Wars moment was well is Every time I put on my cosplay at a comic convention and see how my cosplay brings smiles to some and being called Boba Fett is something I can find a bit of pride in I suppose.
How do you celebrate your fandom, do you for example collect anything, cosplay or have a tattoo?
As you can see from my photos, I celebrate my fandom by dressing up in my cosplay and going to cosplay events.
