I love, love, love, love Chewbacca. Can you tell? I can’t really explain my obsession. He’s just this great character that makes me really happy. Every convention I go to, I get a picture with as many Chewbacca cosplayers as I can find.
This is the most recent Chewie. I didn’t see as many this year as I did the year before.
At the 2013 Salt Lake Comic Con, I met Peter Mayhew. You know that “fan girl” moment we all have when we see celebrities? I had that so bad. It was like “OH MY GOD! I AM GOING TO CRY!” because I was so utterly excited. I stood in line and thought of things to say to him. It was right before his surgery, so I thought about saying, “Good luck!”, or even just saying something stupidly simple like, “I’m a huge fan”. But what I ended up saying to him when it was finally my turn was….
I was too much of a fan girl to even say a word. I might have mumbled a “Hi!” but I’m fairly certain it wasn’t even intelligible. We took the picture and went on my way.
Hopefully, one of these days I’ll get a do-over and I’ll actually talk to him.
But seriously, have you seen his twitter? He is always posting these adorable pictures that I just love.
What are some of your fan girl moments?
