There are many talented cosplayers out there with Jedi and Jawas, Chewbaccas and C-3POs represented. But Stormtroopers outnumber them all combined, just check out this photo from Fan Expo. There are a lot of fans out there with really good Stormtrooper costumes. Who watches Star Wars and thinks “Vader, Luke, Solo, Boba Fett… nah, I want to be a Stormtrooper!” Sure, a few would be expected, but the Stormtroopers are nuts. There are a lot of fans with suspiciously good Stormtrooper costumes. I’ve yet to see one in duct tape and Kleenex boxes.

Rank after rank of Stormtroopers. And not just at Fan Expo and Comic Con and other such cosplay events -- at protests, randomly for fun around the park... everywhere.

That’s too many to believe, each imbued with too much awesomesauce. And they never take off their helmets. I think something else is going on here: a real galactic invasion, happening right under our noses. They’re masquerading as fans to slowly infiltrate our society. First, conventions. Then, “ironic” appearances of Stormtroopers at bowling alleys and shopping malls, getting us used to the idea of harmless Stormtroopers on our streets. Next, “peaceful” protests in front of our government buildings. After that, who knows — maybe we’ll find out how deadly precise their blaster fire is after all. Obi Wan always seemed to hold it in high regard.

    I heard they were looking for a couple of droids.
