On December 16th in the afternoon and evening on the “Movie Street” Taiwan Observer happened to come upon a Star Wars cosplay event. A group of local Star Wars enthusiasts and the Vieshow Cinemas held a little star wars event including a march, crafts and all your favorite characters. The cos-players were happy to pose for photos with anyone interested and were all very friendly.
After taking a few photos we left the scene and went on our way. about 3 hours later we headed back in the same direction to find that the little event had grown dramatically and with fans and cos-players all gathering for a photo op and march down the movie street. Local media outlets came to cover the spectacle, while enthusiasts where there to celebrate the new Star Wars movie.
