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.

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 honoured him by bringing out four replica droids they built.
