SAN DIEGO» Four “Star Wars” cos­tum­ing clubs held a trib­ute to their fa­vorite princess at ComicCon.

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.

The fans also cel­e­brated the life of Kenny Baker, the ac­tor who played R2-D2, who also died last year. Mem­bers of the R2 Builders Club hon­ored him by bring­ing out four replica droids they built.
