Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

By 20:36:00 , , , ,

My sisters and I have been waiting expectantly for the day Rogue One: A Star Wars Story released, of course we did not go during the middle of the night, we do kind of like sleep. But we went today. Naturally we decided that cosplay was necessary, Even my mum joined in, wearing my Jedi cloak that we made last year. 
Alice and I went full out though. 

I present to you Jyn and Rey. I was a bit disappointed that Jyn has such a boring hair style, but for once all my short fly away hair came in handy. The colours are off, but I thought I did pretty well.

Alice, AKA Rey had a much more interesting hair style I had not even noticed it much before I was wondering what to do with Alice's hair, but I watched a tutorial and then did it up for her.

 I could not find any finger less gloves, but I made some, it was quite hard.... to cut through that thick leather. They are not brown but the worked.

But onto the movie. I promise I won't spoil anything even though I kinda want to. Overall I loved it. I must say though that I was a bit disappointed that the movie did not begin with the scroll of words like every other Star Wars movie does, but I'll forgive that.  It also did not begin with Star Wars music. which was sad, just a big bang of sound and space, stars and a planet. 

I do think that this movie managed to add to the previous ones, mostly in how it gave a good reason for the Death Star, having the fault in it that could be exploited in a way to cause the whole thing to blow up. It made so much sense and was another whole new story.

K-2SO (the black droid) was actually funny, or at least more so, Then C-3PO, as much as I love C-3PO he is sometimes too stupid and too silly, like he is trying too hard to be the funny comic relief. K-2SO made some really good comments that were funny, and not forced, or added to what was going on in a good way. SO I really liked that.

There was lots of cool action, explosions, and fast moving things. My personal preference may have been to have a bit less of that, but it is Star WARS after all. The characters were pretty cool too and they were all quite different. Though there was one that did not seem to have much purpose other than in being there, and carrying a really big gun. Well he had purpose but he did not seem to have any goal other than to protect the blind dude, (who did not need much protecting) and to shoot things with his big gun.

The music did not quite have that same feel to it, because it was not the same composer, but it was still good, I don't actually remember thinking much about it while watching except for some parts missing the right music, like the very start and a Darth Vader scene.

But I enjoyed it quite a lot, and the cosplay made it even better.

Are you going to see Rogue One?
Have you even gone to a movie in cosplay?

  1. Woah cool! You guys really rock the whole cosplaying thing xD
    I'm looking forward to seeing Rogue One, hopefully it'll live up to the hype :D (and/or that I won't die from excitement when I do get to see it xD)

    1. Thanks Sarah! It was fun.... and there were lots of little kids pointing and whispering as they lined up to go see another movie, it was quite amusing.

      Hopefully no one will spoil the ending before you get to see it, because that ending.... well. I shall say nothing more.

  2. I am SO looking forward to seeing this movie next week!!

    I wish you a very merry Christmas :)

  3. Definitely worth seeing, Merry Christmas to you too.

  4. What fun! We went opening night--but a number of the theaters near us have started offering showings earlier than midnight (what a relief!). I really, really liked it. Very well done.

    1. Yep, I was a little worried it would just be a grab to get more money, because we would watch it anyway being labeled as Star Wars, but this one does hold its own.

  5. OH GRACIOUS - your cosplays are epic! :D I've only seen two Star Wars movies, but I hope to watch the others sometimes soon *nodnod*.
