‘Star Wars’ fan clubs hon­our Car­rie Fisher at Comic-Con

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - ENTERTAINMENT -

SAN DIEGO — Four “Star Wars’’ cos­tum­ing clubs held a trib­ute to their favourite fallen princess at Comic-Con.

The fan groups cel­e­brated the life and work of Car­rie Fisher as Princess Leia at the pop-cul­ture con­ven­tion in San Diego on Sun­day.

Sev­eral women dressed in Leia’s flow­ing white gown and iconic twin buns spoke about how much the char­ac­ter in­spired them. One said she walked down the aisle at her wed­ding to Leia’s theme. An­other said, “You put on a pair of buns, and you’re un­stop­pable.’’

The pre­sen­ta­tion in­cluded an ex­hibit of fan art cre­ated af­ter Fisher’s death last year.
