We are the spark that’ll light the fire that’ll burn the First Order down.
As a huge Star Wars fan, I was so excited to experience the first Star Wars movie in years. Star Wars: Episode 7 was such an exciting movie that, after I got out, I knew I wanted to create a cosplay from it.
I ended up settling on cosplaying Poe Dameron after the Internet, once again, began to speculate about Poe’s interest in Finn—who doesn’t enjoy a good love story?
My Poe Dameron cosplay was initially created for a convention, but I later transformed it to be suitable for running across San Francisco for Bay to Breakers.
I created all of the little implements like the leg straps and breathing-system.
The vest was sewn with little pieces of polyester filling put in, to create a puffy look.
On the vest, I used heat transfer vinyl to add the rebel logo and Aurebesh.

I found a huge community out there that sources materials and accessories used within the movie, including the boots, belt, and orange jumpsuit. Instead of creating my own jumpsuit, I elected to use a pair of orange coveralls that I altered to fit the bill.
